Equipment gets cut

Hello,
if I enter the following example into the custom aircraft config:
{"icao":"A320","engines":"CFM56-5B4/P","cat":"M","per:":"C","equip":"SDE2E3FGIJ1LORWXYZ","transponder":"HB1","pbn":"A1B1C1D1O1S1S2 ","maxpax":162,"oew":97.067,"mzfw":134.482,"mtow":162.04,"mlw":142.198,"maxfuel":53.3738502,"paxwgt":174.16, "bagwgt":28.66006}
I get the following in the flight plan xml (atc->flightplan_text):
(FPL-DLH2570-IS -A320/M-SDE2E3FGIJ1LORWXY/HB1 -EDDM1345 -N0455F360 GIVMI6E GIVMI Y101 INBED DCT REKDI DCT LOHRE DCT BOMBI DCT NOSPA UN857 TOLVU/N0458F350 UN857 RAPOR/N0455F340 UZ157 VEDUS VEDUS9J -LFPG0118 EBBR -PBN/A1B1C1D1O1S1S2 DOF/220626 REG/DAIQT EET/EDUU0011 EBUR0042 LFFF0048 OPR/LH PER/C)
As you can see the equipment is cut from SDE2E3FGIJ1LORWXYZ to SDE2E3FGIJ1LORWXY. Then also the VATSIM prefile function gets the cut equipment.

Thanks

Noticed the same with long remark section (Extra FPL Info (Item 18) the following is what I have saved to the airframe

however when prefiling to both VATSIM or IVAO it only shows RMK/TCAS SIMBRIEF

Hi @Godehardt

“Z” in the equipment string requires either DAT/, COM/, or NAV/ to be present in section 18 of the FPL. Otherwise it’s incorrect for it to be in the equipment string, so SimBrief removes it.

To add DAT/COM/NAV to your FPL, you need to add it using the “extrarmk” key in the aircraft config. For example:

{"icao":"A320", ..., "bagwgt":28.66006, "extrarmk":"NAV/RNP2 COM/CPDLC DAT/CPDLCX"}

Best regards,

Hi @Mubarak

VATSIM (and also IVAO possibly) have a character limit for the FPL remarks. SimBrief trims them if they’re too long.

That being said, are you sure you’ve saved them to your airframe properly? If these go in the RMK/ section of the FPL, you need to prefix them with “RMK/” in your airframe settings. Currently it doesn’t look like you’ve done this.

To clarify, make sure in the “Extra FPL Info” you enter your remarks exactly as follows. Note “RMK/” at the very beginning.

Hi @SimBrief
