Unofficial ACEO Mod Manager Data


#222

Nevermind. Got it to update it somehow :slightly_smiling_face:


#223

Is it possible for one airport to have multiple IACO codes? I feel like I’ve spent 50% of my time chasing ghost/double airports.


#224

No, that’s not possible. What seems plausible though, is that an old airport serving a city was closed down and a new one opened a few miles further


#225

Well, here’s an interesting example

http://www.aviador.es/Airports/Info/WIKB

Airport Information: BATAM (HANG NADIM) (INDONESIA) (WIKB)
Nearby alternates:
Field HANG NADIM
ICAO WIDD
Dist. 0
TC 203°

And interestingly, the coordinates point to the same field and airport


#226

What you did looks good. Mark it closed, because it could well be an error in the data set.


#227

This is just an epiphany I had, is it possible for a heliport located in an airfield to have a different ICAO code than the airfield itself?

If yes, this could explain why I’m seeing double ICAO codes.


#228

Correct me if I’m wrong but I do believe that it would be the same code.


#229

I think theoretically it would be possible, i don’t know the rules :slight_smile: , but i haven’t seen any evidence for this yet and personally i highly doubt it
If an airport has a helipad, that is just part of the airport.
I have seen other airports that are specifically mentioned as being a heliport (and they are marked as such in the sheet).

What i do notice is that it’s mostly certain countries that have this issue, where there are multiple ICAO codes for seemingly the same location.
Mostly there is 1 code that is used more often and another you can find 1 or 2 references for. I would chalk that up to error in the data set, since it’s very well possible that a person saw that 1 reference, and added the airport to the data set, without due diligence.


#230

Finally, done the first pass on my list, some of the airports have the wrong countries assigned to them. So that’s about 293 sorted, but roughly 1/4 is still empty.


#231

The program (and separately the generated files) can now be downloaded. See the Mod Manager topic Unofficial ACEO Mod Manager for the google drive link


#232

@Ryan you said you were going to add USA airlines how it goes?


#233

I told you, I’ve have a lot of classes and extra programs I’m doing. I can enjoy the game without excessive airline modding. :slight_smile:

P.S. See if you can get someone else to do it.


#234

Looks like that person is me :wink:


#235

Hello,

I would like to participate with adding a few things for Czech / Turkish airports / Airlines having a lot of experiences with those.

Can I add it directly into the sheet or should I put it here?


#236

Please add it to the sheet, that’s the only part that’s maintained :slight_smile:

@Alfapiomega All the Turkish airports and airlines are added to the game by myself and I don’t see any missing info. But if you have more info please chare it with us :slight_smile:


#238

So is the mod tool ready @pderuiter ??


#239

my life went a bit different than i expected this week, so the tool is what it is at the moment. I hope i have time very soon to fix it, but at this time you’ll have to work with what’s there.


#240

Most things no longer working for me. Even after I deleted the folders from the game folder the modded businesses show up on my list in the game. I am not sure how to scub them completely from the game short of a fresh install of the entire game. Once the mod is fixed I will install again and give it another go.


#241

USA airlines are added. The only thing missing is USA Freight airlines. Any volunteer?

Also new airline number is 514 but it has a way to 530…
