Well done, sounds like you've done a great job. If you would like to email your change centers file I will make it available as an interim update... you could email it to me direct.
Will do. I'm not quite done with them yet, so it'll be a little while yet. I also got a little carried away and filled up the big gap in the Pacific. I've also found and noted a handful of default entries which may be problematic - a few that are "twisted" and also some with only 3 vertices (i.e. lines as opposed to polygons).
Also, on my last flight (KJFK-KPDX, the longest attempt with these changes thus far), PF3 stopped handing me off somewhere in Salt Lake Center and effectively "froze". I could still communicate with my last Center contact and also hear AI traffic, but I had to kill it lest I be nagged for descending and landing. I'm not sure if that had anything to do with my edits, because FSX had also crashed back around Fargo, ND (almost exactly halfway) and I restored the flight with a FSUIPC autosave and let PF3 restore itself as well. So it's possible there were other things in play and I would have been doomed regardless.
I have FSX well enough tuned that I average a crash now only at a rate of about 2-3x a year
. Figures it had to happen on that
flight. (It wasn't even the usual NTDLL, it was the Aerosoft FMGS.dll, a crash which I've never had before...)
