What is considered the best / most appropriate way to do this?
I’ve stumbled across a number of duplicate airports (as in the same location contains two airfields with two seperate ICAO codes, an example would be EGTT / EGVQ) but also found farm strips assigned an ICAO ident for a former airfield 150 ish KM away. I decided it was high time I learned to edit things using the built in dev mode but it seem wrought with issues.
EGVJ used to be / is the ICAO code for a former RAF base but is currently assigned to a tiny, private airstrip in Buckinghamshere, nowhere near the East cost of Suffolk.
My biggest concern at this point despite a number of problems is the naming of this ICAO identifier seems to be dictated by a localisation file that is uneditable through “mod firendly” methodology. The only way I can see editing this is by supplying a script that runs and edits all the localisation files located in the fs_base folder of the official content.
Is this an accurate assessment or am I missing something?
