Issue with '&' in DestinationName field of flight plan for P3D
« on: November 21, 2018, 09:41:30 PM »
FYI I noticed one of the flights in the RTMM flight plans zip was not visible to P3D for loading.  After some troubleshooting, I determined a '&' in the DestinationName field of the PLN file was the culprit. It does not cause a problem in the filename, but rather within this specific field of the file contents.

Flight = Owikeno Casino & Resort (OCAR) from Owikeno N Strip (PF39)  -- aka MFC0445A

Change
<DestinationName>Owikeno Casino & Resort</DestinationName>
to
<DestinationName>Owikeno Casino Resort</DestinationName>

P3D v4.x has a small bug when loading a flight plan via Flight Planner. If this happens a second loading procedure will be successful. (provided that there is no mistake in the plan itself)

Right on Brian - Got it. (Will update the RTMM Flight plans.zip with a new fp and re-up a new FP zip asap).

Thanks for pointing that out Brian.
