• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

P3D v4 Crash on changing airport data

I'm currently trying to change the ICAO for my flightplans in South Africa to use the new FAOR code for the Johannesburg airport. I have to do this since apparently Lockheed changed the code P3D uses for the airport at some point and therefore there is no AI traffic using Johannesburg anymore since they use the old FAJS which doesn't exist in the sim anymore.

Unfortunately when I try entering the new airport data in AIFP it crashes every time I click "Apply Update". I already made an entry for FAOR in the airport.dat by manually copying the entry for the FAJS ICAO and pasting it with the new FAOR ICAO to see if that fixes the issue, but that did not help.

Below are two screenshots attached that show how the Airport Editor looks before I click apply update and the error message that I get.
