Additional Waypoints for FSX
It is necessary to use multiple BGL files. FSX can accept larger BGL files but another piece of software key to my process will not.
The file naming convention for the BGL files is...
JDA Added FSX Waypoints - nnn.BGL
...where "nnn" will be a sequential 3-digit number. The first file will be JDA Added FSX Waypoints - 001.BGL and additional files will follow suit with the numeric portion incrementing by 1 with each new file added.
NOTE: IF YOU HAVE IT FROM AN EARLIER DOWNLOAD, YOU MUST ERASE THE ORIGINAL "JDA Added FSX Waypoints.BGL" (THE ONE WITHOUT A SEQUENTIAL NUMBER IN THE FILE NAME) OR THE INITIAL ~1,900 WAYPOINTS WILL BE DUPLICATED IN FSX.
The sequentially numbered set of BGL files is cumulative; includes new batch and all previous batches.

This set of files will add the real-world waypoints listed above to FSX. The set of BGL files is cumulative. It contains all the earlier waypoints that were added prior to this update. These were absent in stock FSX.
These waypoints are distributed world-wide. Published routes for selected real-world flights and published lists of real-world waypoints are sources for waypoints not in stock FSX.
In the context of this project, "waypoint" may be an intersection or a GPS/RNAV waypoint.
The download file will unzip to...

JDA Added FSX Waypoints - Sorted List.TXT
If installed into your FSX installation, the new waypoints will become part of your FSX installation unless or until you get rid of the BGL files. The new waypoints will be visible on the FSX map and in the GPS and may be incorporated into FSX Flight Plans. If used within the active FSX Flight Plan the waypoint(s) will be listed in the NavLog page on the Kneeboard and will be used as waypoints by the GPS.
If you use Plan-G, the new waypoints will be recognized by that program after you install them in FSX and then rebuild the Plan-G database...

The file "JDA Added FSX Waypoints - Read Me.TXT" explains how to install and uninstall the new waypoints. It's as simple as copying a few files to a specified location.
I will update this collection as often as I add new waypoints to it, probably in batches of about 50 additional waypoints at a time. I'll edit this post to indicate when I've updated it. If you have a real world procedure or some real world waypoints you'd like me to add to the file, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Since the filenames of the BGL files will remain unchanged by updates, I'll include the BGL file sizes in this posting at each update. Over time, you'll be able to keep tabs on whether you have the most up-to-date version by the sizes of the BGL files.
