MakeRwys - Extract Missing ILS Idents


Recommended Posts

First post, and I hope that it's OK to post this subject to this group...so here goes...

 

Created the runways.xml extract using that fantastic MakeRwys.exe utility, boy that's cool. Anyway, did a spot check and found that some ILS idents were not in the file, missing if you would.

 

I checked both the stock and custom AFCADs for the airport and they do contain the missing identifiers. Are there any switches that I could add to improve the xml result set. Also and if it can be disclosed, where are the idents being derived from...I'm assuming the stock airport.

 

So please advise and thanks for this wonderful utility!

They are being obtained in any BGL which is being processed, for add-on sceneries as well as stock. The latter would override the former usually, because the airport BGLs contain "deletion" commands to delete lower layer entries.

 

If there are some missing it seems most likely that they are either missing or incorrectly provided in the relevant BGL file. If you have an example, please find the entry in the Log file (Runways.txt) and post me that complete entry, and if possible a copy of the identified BGL and I can check it here. For the file, ZIP it and send as attachment to petedowson@btconnect.com.
