DBPop

dbpop is a update service for BaseStation.sqb files. There are 3 main features:

UnPop removes old, expired codes, including sold on, written off, permanently withdrawn and scrapped aircraft

RePop will update existing records and add extra info in up to 8 new fields, with a revised Aircraft Details Window to display this info

PrePop will pre-add, by user-selected region(s), hex codes for factory-new and about to be re-registered aircraft, so they're already populated in your database on first reception. It also includes a 'new' logo to identify these aircraft on your BaseStation display.

All 3 features are run independently, giving the user the choice of which to run. There is also a button for an easy backup of your database to a dbpop created Backup folder
