Preloading Waypoints into aircraft.


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to pre-load a list of custom waypoints into my aircraft's system before I enter a multiplayer mission...i.e similar to my custom kneeboards store a list of waypoints saved into the saved games/DCS.openbeta/Kneeboard ?

 

With 10+ waypoints to enter manually in VR before starting the flight, it is a lot of digit punching and time spent before every mission.  Got to be a better way to have them pre-loaded no?

 

PS:  I am not talking about the mission creator doing it himself...just too much work for him + variability of multi-player showing /no show etc so really talking about the player doing it himself.

And for some you have to wait for the DTC feature to do something comparable

You can put waypoints in mission editor and for most planes data should already be there. Buts its also module dependent. For example in F-14 there is no "data cartridge", but there is Jester RIO acting as one 😉 

 

So its dependent on admin and mission designer mostly

Hence the PS in my message.  Not the solution for large multiplayer

found this utility: DCSWaypointEditor.  works well if you enter waypoint in it manually outside of DCS and they import into aircraft once in DCS.  Have not tried the F10 map capture function
