DURBAN XP RUNWAY 24

Post by massynrc » Tue Jul 28, 2020 9:19 pm

Hi Guys,

Thanx for another great South African Scenery! Looking forward to many more! :cool:

Just a quick question, the ILS for Runway 24 at FALE is heavy off-centered. Any reason for that perhaps?

Thanx!

Sorry for the delay. Problem with these things in XP is that the nav data usualy is overwritten if another addon adds something, or if XP runs updates. We'll try to prepare a file for you that - at least temporarily - fixes that problem, though.

Thank you for the reply. That will be highly appreciated. The ILS in both directions are terribly off, and especially flying down there this time of year, It is quite a nuisance having the ILS not working properly. I have no problems with your Capetown ILS etc. That works perfectly, just the Durban.....

Are we just supposed to give you money and then you play dead?
This scenery is not fit for purpose and you need to fix it. We cannot use it as is.

This is not even a 2 hour job to fix. :bomb:

Sorry, with all the projects we're involved at the moment, this post has been kind of lost.

Please download and extract the attached file.

Then go to your main Xplane folder, open the "Custom Data" Folder. If there is no such folder, please create it.

Inside the folder, there's a file called user_nav.dat. Open the file in notepad, then copy over the lines from the attached user_nav.dat, excluding the first 2 lines.
If there is no such file in that folder, then just copy the user_nav.dat to that folder.

Like written above, there's a good chance addons like Navigraph will overwrite the information at a later time, so it's possible you'll have to do this several times in the future.

Appreciate the response.

We also over writhe this file with the Zibo mod if the Nav Data update is enabled so you will have to fix this permanently in the scenery when you get the time, please.

I will give it a test later and see what happens

I tried your data and added it to my already existing file.

As long as the Zibo mod does not detect scenery changes and recreate + over write this file I will be all right.

Unfortunately due to both the reason that you mentioned as well as how the Zibo mod works with certain settings you will have to still fix the scenery.There is no getting around that.

It is not possible to include that kind of data inside the custom scenery, that's why XP has that extra folder. It's a limitation of XP11, and we hope it will change in XP12.

Ok, so I asked around and I was told to submit the information to Aerosoft & Navigraph. They must put it into the AIRAC.

Can you please do that for us?

That would indeed be the only way to prevent those addons overwriting the information. I'll see what I can do.

Maybe there's a misunderstanding here. There is nothing we can do that would prevent other addons like Navigraph overwriting our data. The only one who can fix this is Navigraph.
