• 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.

FS2004 Issue w/ cross-ref Time Table w/ Flight Plans

So far I'm not much for creating files just yet. I like to break into things slowly. I mainly use AIFP to track flights-- much as a passenger would looking at the Arv/Dep boards in the airport.

Therefore when I open up AIFP and open an AI file, for a given airline (I use WOAI ones, but I suppose any will do), I typically open the time table and then click on the airport I'm interested in to see the list of arrivals/departures. This is where the issue I notice begins:

In version 2, when I clicked on a particular fight leaving at a certain time/day, it would immediate cross reference (in the flight plan window) which flight plan number that particular flight was contained in. I could then scroll down the corresponding list in the flight plan editor and find the flight in question.

However in version 3, when I click on a flight in the Time Table, it does not cross reference the proper flight plan number, in the flight plan window. Instead it will highlight a random flight number of its own choosing, but not the correct one.

This isn't so much a problem with a small carrier that only has-- say... 7 flight plans total. For that, I can scroll down the list, open each one, and find it myself. But for an airline like Southwest, with 532+ flight plans, that list would be too hard to go through to cross reference with the time table myself.

My question is, am I doing something wrong that's preventing this relatively easy thing from happening, or was it an oversight/omission in the new version?

am I doing something wrong
No, V3 is meant to operate same as V2 in this regard.

I'll take a look and fix as necessary prior to the next general release.
