Introduction

With LotAtc Editor, you can load and edit scenario and database graphically in order to be used with LotAtc Generator.

You will have same maps, shortcut, tools than LotAtc Client. You can also make drawing and save them afterwards.

All properties set in database will be used as default in all scenario using this object.

To use an object in a scenario, just set its type=<name> with <name> defined by name of the left column of database, in the screen above, type="F16-A" will defined an F-16A with:

  • Altitude of 3000m
  • Radar active with specified values

Each object in stored on database directory as a JSON file called with <name> (so F16-A.json in our example). File can be edited manually but be sure to have LotAtc Editor closed in this case to avoid conflict.

Scenario

Using same way (shortcuts/buttons/context menu) than LotAtc Advanced Instructor module, you can :

  • Add new item
  • Open properties/instructor view to edit settings
  • Open raw editor for full control on all values
  • Delete items
