HawaiiEditHaving the greatest number of destinations of any default map in YSFlight, this map is a favorite for Virtual Airlines (VA) who are looking to establish their own network of routes. It also has the greatest distances to travel between airports, providing a more realistic experience for pilots of large airliners.
There are differences with online and offline play. Cheifly, there are servers with hostile objects which weren't included in the original map. There may also be servers running endurance mode, where non-player aircraft attack players' aircraft. As there is a general rule in YSF servers not to shoot other players without consent, the hostiles are perfect for military pilots looking to hone their skills. In online play, civilian pilots should avoid certain routes, or maneuver safely around the hostile areas on their way.
Also, there have been cases of duplicate NAV entries for all airports in Hawaii. In these servers, it appears that two versions of the Hawaii map had been loaded by mistake, and all that remains are coordinates for the duplicate airports. Also, ILS names are not always the same, especially in Hawaii, where they have names like "carrier" and "homebase" The original names included the airport name and runway number (such as "HNL_08L", which is useful in finding out the runway direction at unfamiliar airports, and essential for verifying you are using the correct ILS when in poor visibility conditions.
