Sector File Creater Program


Recommended Posts

Hi Marcin,

 

It's great the tool is working out for you. It was originally programmed in Tcl for Linux and then "webified" so that anyone could use it.

 

I could port it to Tcl in Windows but I don't think it's worth the effort. Instead, what I may be able to do is put in a batch upload button in order to convert multiple files one after the other.

There are two programs in here (http://www.avsimrus.com/f/for-flight-controllers-20/) called af2sct and sctdraw that looks interesting. I haven't tested them yet but it certainly seems like it does what is asked.

 

..skipped..

 

The author of these programs is in progress of finalazing of his new "SectEd" program with GUI, which enables to make sct,sct2,ese,pof files (meaning, for ES and VRC) from airacs for drawing aisrpace, routes and navaids, and implements his old abovestated programs to make additional sector info from AFCAD and apt-BGLs and even take coordinates from Jeppessen charts.

 

I'm testing it now and I must say this program will change the world of sector making.

[it may be quite illegal tough. I mean publishing converted AIRAC from Navigraph]

 

The goal of the tool is to optionally convert YOUR airac to YOUR sector. And it's up to you wether to publish or not.

Is there a location we can leave bug reports and feature requests?

 

I have noticed that the "Import Runways" from Level-D does not pick up all airports, as is appears Level-D does not include runways over a certain length, or perhaps if it doesn't have an IFR procedure [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ociated with it.

 

So, if anyone knows where we can forward this information to, that would be great.

 

BTW, this program is by and large the best thing out there in regards to sector file development. My hats off to the developer and anyone who helped him along the way!

 

Thanks,

 

Andrew

There must be a file named in russian (you can post your bugs here) .url

Proceed there and write a note.

 

otherwise make an url file with the following:

Thank you for sharing Evgeny

This is indeed a very neat and promising piece of software. I hope that the few bugs will get fixed and that the author is ready to push its full potential forward!

 

I would love to see a feature to automatically fix unclosed SECTOR borders and a way to label SECTORLINE items so that you don't need to play with the show/hide feature (which is still buggy). Also, in POSITIONS section of an ESE file, squawk start and squawk end fields transform 0370 to 370. Might need to make it a text type to avoid this.

 

Should I report more bugs here?

Sure, don't hesitate to write more bugs.

I'll speak to Sergey, the author, so he will be able to fix these bugs when he has free time.

 

Any updates Evgeny?

 

I have a new bug to add. While using SectEd in Windows 7 Ultimate X86, using the mouse wheel to zoom in, it immediately zooms back out. I am able to get it to zoom in if I scroll the wheel really fast, but if I try to zoom in again, instead of zooming in, it zooms out.

Tried posting some other updates to the Docomeent online. It seems it has been taken down? The docomeent is no longer reachable with the link provided above.

Hey everyone. I'm the author of SectEd and of course i plan to remove the bugs as soon as i can. The bug list is in my google account (Evgeny gave the URL) and is available for testers to send bug reports and wish lists.

Just to be clear, i intended to finish the software half a year ago. Due to lack of free time i couldn't, however i thought, that it was already somehow useable despite the bugs. That's why i sent it to several guys from VATRUS for testing. So it's even not a public beta )). But i really hope to get to that stage soon.
