Custom waypoints in IF? (Must See! Explanation included)

Hi people of infinite flight! Today I will be showing you guys a feature very few people know of, and that is… you guessed it, custom waypoints! Lately I’ve been experimenting with them but I’ve used them in IF for a long time now! Check out the pictures down below and if somehow you still don’t believe me then you can load up the sim between 0330z-0630z ish (2/10/21) then go to expert server then go to KPHX and load up at a gate I’ll be southwest 0000 and you can copy my flight plan to see yourself.

If you want to know how to do it, I’ll be releasing how to do it on 2/10/2021 @6000z

How to add the custom waypoint names

  1. Have ForeFlight downloaded with an active subscription

  2. Create custom waypoints (YouTube infinite flight tutorial on Generic Gamer YT) My YT channel :)

  3. Tap on the custom way point and click more>save and then name.

  4. Share FPL from ForeFlight to infinite flight via airdrop (also found in the “how to make custom waypoints in infinite flight” on Generic Gamer’s YT channel)

  5. Continue as needed

Please feel free to ask questions ;)

Well, you don’t necessarily have to have foreflight downloaded, its just based off the Garmin .FPL file format. I know @AdamCallow has been working on a cool project incorporating this feature.

Yeah but I figured that ForeFlight would offer the most ease!

You could just download the fpl from skyvector with custom coords. I guess you would need to edit the fpl file for custom names though.
