FSFlight Airspace File Problems

Reported by: matthew@… Owned by: Stein Tore Erdal
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.2.14
Component: FsFlight Version: 1.2.6
Keywords: Open Air Format Problem Cc:


Hi Stein,

Great work on the program.

I have come across a problem with FSFlight and reading Open Air.txt files. The area I am in has many arcs & circles in the data. For some reason FSFlight has a BIG objection to drawing anything that resmembles an Arc or Circle.

I have no problem reading this file in SeeYou?, CompeGPS, MaxPunkte?.

OK I thought, so maybe it just doesn't draw arcs or circles but still calculates the correct data from the coordinates. I used a test from a Task where Airspace was busted from a previous Comp and NO it didn't pickup or flag the Airspace violation that SeeYou? or CompeGPS flagged from the same Airspace file and Tracklog.

There is definitly something going on with this.

Let me know if you need any of the test data.

Cheers Matt

Hi Matt,

As you found, FsFlight is not able to read anything other than polygons from airspace files, ie it simply takes a set of coordinates and assume there is a straight line btw each.

A workaround for circles (until FsFlight improves) is to create the circle as a set of points...

Another option is to make a polygon with a restricted area larger than the area so that the real this area within the polygon.
Solution that's easy to make
