Name showing incorrectly in world map

We submitted a package for the marketplace and it was reported the name showing incorrectly as shown in this picture. We are almost certain the name was displayed correctly before the last Sim Update.1653348533816.png

Since I have modified the name and check all the fields. I even replaced an "ñ" for an "n" thinking that was the issue but it did not fix it.

Has this happened to anyone here?

After more troubleshooting, we found this is an issue in the simulator since the last sim update. The name was shown correctly before then.


What led us to discover it was not a problem with our addon, was information from people who use navigraph. This airport is missing by default in MSFS. Navigraph adds missing airports (runways) to the sim and the name is also appearing incorrectly for navigraph users.

There is also a free version of this addon available at flightsim.to. We downloaded it and installed it (wiithout navigraph or our addon installed) and the name also was shown incorrectly.

Also noticed, the name changes after selecting the airport as a destination as shown in this video.

This airport isn't missing in the default MSFS. Airport2Project finds it at:

fs-base-genericairports\scenery\0303\APX27290.bgl So that is part of the problem... but ADE and LittleNavMap do not find this airport.

It could've been added in the last sim update. When we started the project (before the update) it didn't exist in the sim

Look at what I found. A good amount of missing airports have been added with the same behavior, mostly in South America and one in Russia, all with the same name issue.

Yep. Something is not completely right with these newer additions concerning the airport names and cities.
