FSPM VFR Map

Please don't hate me but I needed to discontinue the version 1.0.0, you can get the new one here. I kept it for 3-4 days with the info to update, and I had to stop the service for 1.0.0. The updates from now will come through this website and won't be as "forced".

It’s a map. With your plane moving in it. In the Sim. Without any external apps needing to run.
(It does not open with the "V" key, this does not overwrite the default map, it is an add-on. You need to find it in the top menu manually.)

Changelog:
Thank you all for the feedback!

To update: Backup/delete the old community folder, and write the new one "fspm-panel-vfrmap" from zip. DELETE FIRST, DO NOT OVERWRITE!!!

Changes:
- The panel with non-map info is now collapsable
- Additional weather data (QNH, Temperature...) is shown
- Plane icon is a bit smaller
- "reload" icon goes up now, when the window is minimised. It's still visible, and I hate that this is ridiculously difficult to do nicely, but it's better like this.

You can see it running here:

If it doesn't work or you see something you don't like please just report a bug here, it’s probably fixable.
And, if you're a nodejs dev, interested in the app development for MSFS, but find all this simconnect stuff too c++ ish, ping me, I'm making a platform to develop this kind of in-game apps easily, and we can probably work together. For example, it takes about 1 day to make this app in the frontend (and about 5 more to put css in place and "debug" it in-game, but that's me).


There’s a basic “world” layer, generously hosted by Carto, using the OSM data.
There is also a layer you can select with some info about airspaces and nav data from the OpenAIP database (unfortunately not interactive, yet).

There’s also some more info about your flight and the missing indication (besides Garmin) about the wind direction.

You can teleport anywhere by clicking on the map and then choosing altitude, speed etc. Please be patient or pause after the teleport, until the space around you warps back into existence.

To install, unzip the file and copy the folder ‘fspm-panel-vfrmap’ to the MSFS Community folder. You'll need to restart the MSFS.

Beware: I noticed once, on the first install, when I started it first - the game crashed (VFR maps…). After the restart all is good, never crashed the game again. But just in case, when you start it the first time, do it right after the game loads, not at the end of a long flight.


Pretty empty over here.

    Is there any way to switch between English units and Metrics? I need metrics please and that is what I have chosen in MFS settings.

    I like it very much. I use it every day. But I have a strange problem.
    When I use TELEPORT 2 or 3 times, fps of my sim drops dramatically.
    I have RTX 2080Ti and when I start the flight my fps is around 50 - 60.
    After using of TELEPORT fps drops below 20 and it's disaster. I have to turn off simulator and start it over.
    Does also anybody else have this problem?
    This pic shows current fps after teleport:

    And inthe cockpit it is even worse :

    The values ​​for the pressure in HG and hPa are probably reversed.

    Hey, how to run this map on VR after last update?

    for all VR users, consider https://github.com/Christian1984/vfrmap-for-vr as an alternative for the time being. I find it even better and more optimized as you can set the map zoom

      Only problem is it's airspace class data is rudimentary at best, and it's taxiway maps are garbage. Some don't have a taxiway designations, and others have wrong designations. Sarasota FL airport and I think St Pete, for instance. Then again this one didn't have taxiway designations either, but did use proper airspace map data.
      I wish i could get little navmap to work in VR. I love the VR experience, but having to take it off to get good data is a pain.

      The version I download contained a trojan malware executable, so windows blocked it. It was in the server app. Please double check / scan it for virus before using.

    Is their anyway of keeping this open when outside the aircraft in VR or does it only work inside the cockpit view?

    This tool ist fantastic.
    Sadly I have to confirm, that the map isn't visible in VR-mode for me. All hints did't work.
