VRPsSelect has a database of nearly 4000 visual reporting
points in over 20 countries worldwide.
The user can export VRPs in several different formats to
be used with all the major flight simulators, Microsoft Flight
Simulator 2020, Prepar3D, X-Plane and FSX. In addition, the
major VFR flight planners Little NavMap and PlanG are also
supported. The Reality XP GTN 750/650 TOUCH is also supported.
will also export the VRPs in a format that will create
scenery for each flight simulator to place a small water
tower marking the VRP. The size of the water towers can be
specified so that inexperienced users may require a larger
and more visible marker whilst experienced users may require
a smaller marker. The idea is to ensure a VRP has been identified,
not to create an easy way to navigate from one to the other.

Roger Hicks has modified Kevin Firth's FSX files
for the UK Airspace Boundaries. They don't appear
in P3D as you fly, but do show on the map. They also are displayed
in Plan-G. These files provide the pilot with all the up to
date controlled airspace boundaries for the UK. UK Controlled
Airspace changes every year, and Kevin has promised to try
and keep these files current, so check the version date to
be sure you have the latest.
The files located at "P3Dv4\Scenery\World\scenery" need
to be renamed from BNXWorld0.bgl and BNXWorld1.bgl to BNXWorld0.bgl.off and
the files are not renamed, P3D will use both BGL files, effectively
rendering the UK Airspace boundaries created by Kevin as
being difficult to distinguish. There is no longer any need
to copy the files to the P3D installation folder when the
P3D CIX VFR Club UK Airspace Boundaries package is added
to the Prepar3D Add Ons folder. The add-ons.xml file, included
in the download, tells P3D where to locate the files within
the package, but will not prioritise same name original files.
Important Note: - Every time P3D is updated, the
files BNXWorld0.bgl and BNXWorld1.bgl will need to be renamed
again as above. However the Add On Package will remain
working without issue and requires no maintenance.
This scenery is a real breakthrough for VFR flight enthusiasts.
It comprises Autogen buildings, trees and other objects placed
accurately to size and shape in their real world positions
across the whole of Great Britain. Member Peter Memmott has
worked some magic with Ordnance Survey publicly released data
using software tools included with the FSX Software Development
Kit. Either with default scenery or any of the photographic
sceneries available for the UK, this revolutionary upgrade
adds even more realism to to your virtual flying experience.
The download file (zip) is 1.1Gb in size and can be unzipped
with a password which is published on the Club forum. The download
includes an installer.
