#511414 Hello there, it's me again with another Question/Request. In Vpilot v1 we had the SimiliarAircraft.txt where we could put in similiar Typecodes. is there something similiar to That in vpilot v2? i couldn't find the Text file, and having to edit the Model Matching Ruleset when someone gets the wrong Type code with the Correct airline is also a bit Annoying.

Best Regards
Yun

#511416 That file is now downloaded from the vPilot server and is contained in a non-editable compressed file. If you have additions to make, let me know.

#511421 Are they wrong codes, or similar codes? Either way, you can PM or put them in the post, doesn't matter. Just be sure to specify if they are wrong codes versus similar codes. I have a separate location in the database for wrong codes.

For wrong codes, specify what the wrong code is and what the right code is that it should point to.

For similar codes, just provide a list of codes that you think are all similar enough for model matching.

Depends really, sometimes i see Wrong Codes, sometimes Similiar Codes, could you maybe re-introduce the SimiliarAircraft.txt file as an Optional Feature? I can give you the Codes but it would take a little while for it to be Updated wouldn't it, and i do see some wrong codes every few flights.

But a recent similiar code i saw was: MD 82, should have been MD82

Cheers

The feature is still there, it's just that the data is now downloaded from my server rather than being part of a file. This is so that the data is centralized and everyone benefits from updates.

No, it's very easy for me to add to the list, and vPilot downloads it automatically when I make changes.

That would be an invalid code, not a similar code. Spaces are not valid. I'm surprised there are clients that let the user enter spaces in the type code field.

B77F is already in the database, aliased to B77L. I'll add it without the leading B as well.

Thanks.

Hey, got another one. "77W" probably meant "B77W"

#513128 I'm traveling at the moment and don't have ready access to the database, but I'll check on the Piper when get to my hotel. I'll also add the Tornado and Typhoon aliases then.

Thanks.

#513744 I don't know if it is in there but..

E170 = Embraer 170-100

E75S = Embraer 170-200 standard winglet (aka old Embraer 175)
E75L = Embraer 170-200 long winglet (aka shiny new Embraer 175)

There is no such thing as E175, it should point to E75S or E75L, but I realzie not everybody has models updated for that so E170 was the old code it used before the change happened.
