QMID error on exporting for airports im doing

I am trying to work on an airport from scratch (TGPY) (deleted everything except tower frequencies and ils freq), and whenever I try exporting, I get the error message "This AIRPORT is in a different QMID than the ICAO index list thinks. AIRPORT DE11 IS DISCARDED!" and "This AIRPORT is in a different QMID than the ICAO index list thinks.AIRPORT DE04 IS DISCARDED!"

I have the correct ICAO code and name in the airport properties panel. I have also created a new project and tried editing a different airport and get the same message. However they seem to export fine. I tried deleting the content.xml file and a couple other things. Any help is appreciated.

If you change the location of an airport, you may get the above errors. Right now, the solution is to close the airport, then create a new airport with a different icao.

If you report the correct location of the airport (or icao) to Asobo, they might correct it in a world update.

Hi dougjudy,

It is probably because the airport you have added is at a different location from the airport in our database. Have you tried using the airport wizard creator ? It will place the airport at the correct lat/long.

Regards,

Xavier

Hi Darwikey,

I used the airport editor to create this airport, and selected "Override existing airport" while at the correct airport and it did give me the lat/long etc. I sent my project for you guys to take a look


Thanks

I am getting the same error for an airport that had not existed in MSFS: LHHE (Zalacsány-Héviz) in Hungary. I only get this error now, after updating the SDK to the new version. I created this airport several months ago (without getting this error) and now I made only some corrections.

This bug (which has been dragging on for a long time) has also prevented me from fixing an airport (FNCU) in a new geographic location ... as it conflicts with the internal MSFS database.

Below is the list in my Store version (1.24.5.0) of the default airports that are in conflict with each other.

This AIRPORT is in a different QMID than the ICAO index list thinks.

AIRPORT DE11 IS DISCARDED!

This AIRPORT is in a different QMID than the ICAO index list thinks.

AIRPORT DE04 IS DISCARDED!

This AIRPORT is in a different QMID than the ICAO index list thinks.

AIRPORT KBRG IS DISCARDED!

This AIRPORT is in a different QMID than the ICAO index list thinks.

AIRPORT SDL IS DISCARDED!

This AIRPORT is in a different QMID than the ICAO index list thinks.

AIRPORT FNCU IS DISCARDED!


Excluding FNCU which is what I wanted to change as it is in the wrong position and with the wrong ICAO name.

By the way, is there a huge confusion in the ICAO names database when will they be corrected?

for instance:


...\Official\OneStore\fs-base\scenery\0604\APX51340.bgl
Matadi Airport / Congo DRC (FZMT) and Matadi Airport (FZMI) / Angola


...\Official\OneStore\fs-base\scenery\0604 \APX52340.BGL
Kasongo-Lunda Airport (FZKS) / Angola (FN)

Kasongo-Lunda Airport (FZKG) / Congo DRC (FZ)

Kasongo-Lunda Airport (FZKU) / Congo DRC (FZ)

Kasongo-Lunda Airport (FZDD) / Congo DRC (FZ)

Kasongo-Lunda Airport (FZKD) / Congo DRC (FZ)

Hello @Gjanosh61 ,

Can you tell me the current name/ICAO/Coordinate and the corrected name/Coordinates/ICAO of the concerned airports please ?
That way I will open an issue on our side to get it fixed

Boris

Hello @Boris_ thank you very much ️for the availability,

\ 0604 \ APX5130.BGL

FNNT -N'dalatando (by default) is incorrect in this position the correct one is:

FNCU - Calulo

S09 58.5 E014 55.08

Remedy: Rename ICAO to FNCU


\ 0604 \ APX52360.BGL

FNCU - Coemba (by default)

S12 08.67 E018 05.50

Solution: Rename ICAO to AO-0004


Unfortunately, this is only one but there are others that are messed with the icao callsign.


I believe that we must have the

Location Indicators (Doc 7910/183) ICAO and then integrate with national databases.

You should be able to close the FNCU and simply create another airport. What is the location and new ID you wish to use?

Hi @rhumbaflappy,

the matter here is a little complicated.

We are in the \ 0604 folder

APX51350.bgl

There is FNCU / Calulo (this real and object of the project) and in the same geographical position FNNT / N'dalatando (by default but in the wrong position)

and then there is (also this by default) FNCU / Coemba (APX52360.bgl) with the same ICAO.

Hence, the conflict with the MSFS internal database

It would be nice if, after closing an airport, we could then recycle the airport ID. It would be nice if we were not restricted to a 5 character airport ID (8 would be nice, 16 would be best). It would also be nice if money grew on trees.
