    Looks like the approaches have errors.

    Did you open the BGL directly or some XML? Is this an add-on airport or default airport?

    Hi CRJ

    This is one of my own WW2 airfield recreations. Using old google maps, images, photos etc I run a project to recreate the old airfields also creating my own replica buildings if none exist.

    It has all been working fine after every save. I save my work often as adding the taxiways hard standings etc is time consuming. 6 years ago I had already finished this one but my old PC got a virus and I hadnt been backing up so lost over a years work and probably over a dozen airfields and many buildings.

    With this lockdown I have got back into it but time hasnt doing my memory much good and its like learning from scratch again.

    I dont recall having opened anything directly. This fault only appeared after a long stint yesterday adding many taxiways. The error appeared so I removed all the work I had done to that point attempting a compile at each stage to see what it was - with no joy!

    Strangely though I think I might need to reinstall ADE as it happens if I start a new test project from scratch? It also now has an error that my FX folder is missing? I dont use FX anywhere and certainly havent deleted or moved it so......................???

    Well I have just binned the whole airfield and started over. Now it is compliling.
    I deleted everything trying a compile after each but this didnt work. I THINK I may have changed a WAYPOINT? But could not find out how to check or access these again.
    I wont be doing THAT anymore!
