• 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.

As discussed in Section 2.4 of the User Manual, Windows language and regional settings other than English may cause difficulties when using AIFP:
  • languages that use a space as a decimal seperator create ambiguous results in fields that may contain both decimals and spaces - such as latitude and longitude.
  • Germanic languages (especially) handle "V"s and "W"s as the same character. This creates difficulty on sorts and compares. In a sorted list, you'll find words starting with V and W intermixed. As well, when searching for "CYWG", for example, Windows may return "CYVG" - without warning. Such situations may result in missing airports, aircraft and/or traffic.
There seems no way internal to AI Flight Planner around such situations.

So, if you normally use a regional setting that causes such errors, you may have to switch to English if AI Flight Planner to perform certain operations properly.
