FSDiscover by Flight1 is a navigation tool addon for FSX, which is very useful in locating airports and sightseeing spots for flightsimmers.
Orbx’s NA BLUE Pacific North West (PNW) comes with an FSDiscover data file for the region’s Points of Interest (don’t remember if it was created by Orbx officially or by some members from its forum). However, the file contains airports information in the region as well, which causes unnecessary duplications when FSDiscover is showing airport names.
Moreover, there’s been no update found for the file. Also, all Orbx’s newer regions — Pacific Fjords (PFJ), Northern Rocky Mountains (NRM) and Central Rocky Mountains (CRM) — don’t have any FSDiscover data available.
Based on my previous FTX NA Landmarks post, I compiled 5 FSDiscover data files covering all POIs in the four regions plus FSAddon’s Tongass Fjords (TFJ) area. All cabin Lodges from Return to Misty Moorings (RTMM) are also included.
- FTX NA_Cabin-Lodges.dat (Cabin Lodges)
- FTX NA_Dams-Winds-Mines.dat (Wind Turbine Farms, Hydro Dams, Mines & Sawmills)
- FTX NA_Lighthouses.dat (Lighthouses)
- FTX NA_Misc-POI.dat (Photoreal POIs and Misc POIs)
- FTX NA_Mountains-Passes-Glaciers-ski.dat (Mountains, Roads & Passes, Glaciers, Ski Areas)
The reason of creating 5 separate files instead of a single one because this allows assigning different colors to different POI categories for easy identification when activating FSDiscover as picture shown above.
Anyone who is interested in getting any of these FSDiscover data files for Orbx and FSAddon’s NA regions, subscribe my blog first and notify me with a comment.
