There is no need to define End of SID / Start of STAR if you don't include the SID / STAR waypoints in the flightplan. The first / last waypoint is considered End of SID / Start of STAR automatically if no End of SID / Start of STAR is defined.
Ok but when using SID/STARs why would I need to define them in this page as well if I’ve checked them in the main SID/STAR page already? What does the program actually change in ATC behavior once I also define these exit and entry point?
I’ve also tried your recommendation but I find it unrealistic when using very long SID/STAR routes (usually into big hub airports).
In these airports (KDFW for example) there are so many STARs that it is hard to find a mutual waypoint which covers most runways. So you are left with the need to select one of the main route waypoints (over 100NM away from the destination airport) as the last flight plan waypoint.
I think a better option in these specific cases is defining a waypoint within the STAR (closer to the airport but also one from which you can be vectored to any other runway) which will serve as the last waypoint and from there get vectored to whatever runway is being used.
I tried removing specific STAR waypoints from sim brief but could not figure out how to do it without removing the whole STAR
