About

Welcome to Data Card Builder v2.

This is a Mission Data Card (MDC) generator / builder for DCS with support for importing routes, loadouts and more from CombatFlite or routes from Google Earth, editing navigation waypoints, assigning loadout (including weights) and custom images for notes secctions and more.

It generates multi-page PDF or per-page PNG files that are suitable for immediate kneeboard use within DCS and includes a A-10C CDU DataLoader compatible file when the A-10C is selected

It was born out of a desire to make my own life easier building MDCs in a reasonable timeframe and I hope you find it of use!

If you have any trouble, feature requests or other items of interest, please feel free to

Inserting Images:
  • Perfect Ratio for a full page image ? 780 x 1080
Table Limitations
  • At the moment, tables will only be split between pages on a row by row basis
  • if you have tables with very large content / or nested tables then you may get funky results such as clipping off the page
Page Breaks
  • You may have a notes section on page 1 with a few lines of content with the rest on page 2.
    If you wish to push the first bit to make a nice self contained notes on page 2
    • Use "Insert" -> "Page Break" as the first item and this will be honored
Funky Formatted pastes from other apps such as discord etc
  • You might get dark backgrounds etc. to avoid this you can do any of the following
    • Paste as plain text (ctrl+shift+v)
    • Paste into notepad.exe, then copy and paste as normal

Apps

MDC Data Loader

This is a small application which can automatically enter waypoints for the F/A-18C using the mdc-loader.json which is supplied with the PDF / PNG download zip archive

Download: mdc-data-loader-0.3.zip

This is *very* alpha at the moment and the source will be put on github in due course

  • Currently only supports F/A-18C
  • All valid waypoints will be entered
    • Invalid or empty waypoints will be ignroed and skipped
    • It will continue to enter next waypoint gaps in the MDC will be honored in-pit
  • Waypoints will be entered starting at the currently selected waypoint
    • To ensure consistency, ensure WP0 is selected (default at startup)
    • If you wish to skip WP 0 (e.g. loading prior to alignment), have a blank item on the waypoints page and it will be skipped on data entry
  • Bullseye will be loaded into WP59 (why having WP0 selected is important for this)
  • Sequence currently uses all valid waypoints and ignores what's in the sequence box
    • When I update the Waypoints tab to manually create sequences these will be honored
    • Right now as a free-form text entry box it's too much data sanitation
