Why do all your responses have to be aggressive. 'as everywhere else on the internet'. I was merely seeking to ask if the EGBJ install made by Surfer Tim would be included in the FGMap and when.

Why do you see an aggression in a simple statement of fact? :?: :?: :?:

You seem to be rather lucky in not having experienced any real aggression online yet... so take it from me, aggression is when people compare you with Nazi figures or other really bad guys or wish bad things for you to happen. Aggression definitely is not when people tell you facts.

I'm not certain what you mean. The airport is on FGMap. Is there something else you expect?

I have the Pirate DHC6 sitting on the ramp there, and that is where FGMap shows me.

Unless I am way off base, that is Google maps with our callsign boxes and airplane silhouettes on it

Open http://mpmap02.flightgear.org/v3/ in a browser.
At the bottom you see the pilot list. Below the pilot list are tabs. Click on the 'nav' tab.
In the 'Navaids lookup' textbox enter 'egbj' and hit return.
Some seconds later, you will see 'Airport EGBJ GLOUCESTERSHIRE', click on it.
This bring you to that airport and show some information about airport, runways and so on.
If a runway has a localizer, you will see a checkbox rigth of the runway text.
If you check this box, you will see the location of the LOC transmitter, GS transmitter and the marker transmitter if any installed.
Also you see the idendifier, frequency and channel of the localizer.

In case if EGBJ, there is no localizer because the server doesn't know it.
Your files with the localizer data are only local on your and Robertfm's computer.

Thanks. Didn't know that. I guess that would be an easy way to determine if the navaids are in the current nav.dat file.

I like having an approach plate. Avoids messy incidents like hitting the ground prematurely.

Edit: I asked about the nav.dat file status in Development -> Scenery.
