Not sure what I’ve done but my Navigraph data does not match the flight plan in MSFS. I set up the flight plan in MSFS but when I go look at the charts and the flight plan, the waypoints are different. I have latest airac cycle installed and latest MSFS. Anyone have any idea’s what’s wrong. Thanks
John, after you have loaded the flightplan in MSFS - do you change anything? When yes, the MSFS re-create the flightplan than … so, when you load a flightplan into MSFS - DON`T touch it any more. Sorry, but when this happens - this is not our issue, it´s a MSFS limitation (issue, bug, feature - call it what ever you want
PS: when my assumption is not correct, let us know again please …
Sorry, possible I missunderstand you but why do you load the flightplan, when you enter dep-arr? Than its clear that the flightplan looks differ because the logic behind how the route will be calculate is differ …
On the world screen in MSFS, he enters his DEP and ARR airports, chooses law altitude IFR. Then for his ARR, he changes what the game chose, and changes that to DIRECT. All this is done on the world screen of MSFS, before he presses Fly.
For me NG doesn’t coincide with the FP sometimes too.
Again, it can´t because as an example the MSFS flightplanner doesn´t support airway directions, but the NG flightplanner does.
In other simpler words:
when you plan a route from A-B in MSFS, the MSFS flightplanner follow the airways without consideration if the airway is valid for this direction. When you plan the same in the NG flightplanner, the route follows exactly the airway directions, and therefore the route can be look differ, what means in other consequence, the waypoints are differ.
Right John, no I don´t understand - you wrote in your posting before:
and after that you wrote:
So, how should I understand this correctly?
There are two possibilities now for me:
You ENTER the route directly the MSFS WorldMap flight planner and compare the output of this route with the output of the route which you have planned in the NG flight planner - when this is correct, read the posting before to @Blueline308
You LOAD the route, which you have build in the NG flightplanner directly in MSFS. When you do this and you don´t change/touch the loaded flight plan (means, no runway change, no terminal procedure change, no altitude change, no position gate change, nothing!) you should see the same route in MSFS (with the same waypoints) as planned in the NG flight planner.
In that moment, when you do ANY change AFTER you have loaded the flight plan, the MSFS re-calculate the route automatically and it can be the same but must not be the same, again due the one example reason what I have explained in the posting to @Blueline308
Here the created NG route (automatic generated in the charts app):
You see, a complete different route - but that´s clear because there are different logics behind (developed by different companies, by different developer + all what the NG flight planner consider but not the MSFS due the limitation, ie. the airway directions but there are a lot more).
