Does anyone know of any good FS flight planning software? I used to have a nice copy of FSBuild, but I lost that with my old computer, and it seems as though it is now payware. I have started using VATSIM, and would like to use accurate flight plans, so if anyone has any help, it would be appreciated.
BTW Just a second question, does anyone know, while playing multiplayer, how to use the text feature, that makes a message appear in the green bar on the top?

RouteFinder is excellent. It is web based and prints out routes using fixes, VOR/NDB points and most importantly airways that the 737 PMDG 800/900 FMC actually recognises. This cuts down on waypoint entry considerably.
check it out at;

Quoting Newark777 (Reply 5): So does anyone know how to convert the info on that site into usable FS flightplan files?
I believe the "payware" version does have that option...
Quoting RouteFinder Info: Auto-Routing - Active (at the moment it is almost the same as the free area, with minor algorithm tweaks) Route Editing - NOT YET OPERATIVE Aircraft Performance calculations - NOT YET OPERATIVE FMS Export - Plain text, SquawkBox, Flight Simulator 200X, FSNavigator, PMDG 737, X-Plane 7.30, Wilco's 767 PIC / Level-D 767 Charting - Ability to create SVG charts (Enroute-chart style) of any area of the globe. Each graphical feature is linked to the database (see below), so that with a mouse click it is possible to reveal more detailed informations. Current limitations - big maps (e.g. entire Europe) may not be practical to plot with all information layers selected (performance considerations of the SVG Viewer). Database - Ability to query the aeronautical database for: Airports, VOR/DME, NDB, Waypoints, FIR/UIR, PRD zones, Other restrictions, Airways, TMA/CTR/ATZ. NOTAM - Ability to query the NOTAM database (e.g. to know all applicable NOTAMs for an airport, FIR, or to search for particular text / NOTAM number)
