Nav.dat updates

Postby SurferTim » Thu Nov 07, 2019 2:02 pm

Where would a forum member post new topics concerning updates to nav.dat?

Probably the scenery development subforum if the new topic will be related to new scenery and/or navigation aids, or perhaps the flying support subforum if it instead will be related to for example using a newer nav.dat file with while flying (for example to work better with the VATSIM community).

tl;dr: It depends... :wink:

Thanks. I think scenery may be best for what I have.

It appears some airport scenery has been updated, but the nav.dat stuff wasn't changed.

Edit: I am not modifying the nav.dat file. I am using the personal scenery folder as wkitty42 suggested.
I plan on compressing them into a zip file.

This might help:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=30734

So you can just upload the NavData folder to some git host and share it that way :)

Don't know if this works for fixes or vors; I don't think it does so that might actually be a useful extension!

That is an interesting idea. I'll have to play with it. I suppose a "git pull" would update the folder if you used "git clone" to download the folder. Is that correct?
