Version 2.2.2 – 2018-02-04

FIXED?:  Did WOM stop working for you? Download this new version. Force a reload of WOM in your browser (Ctrl+R, or F5).  Still no good?  Clear your browser’s cache, then reload again.  Still no good?  Send me the log file.

Version 2.2.1 – 2018-02-03

WED-O-Maker now keeps a log file.  You can send me the log file if you encounter issues.

Version 2.2.0 – 2017-08-22

WED-O-Maker now uses Bing’s newest map controls, essential since MS removed the old map controls.

Version 2.1.0 – 2017-04-30

Fonts and Symbols gets a new, experimental font – Yellow Lines. Using lines instead of polygons, this may be useful for small lettering.

Download speed is now 4x faster in my tests.  YMMV, but it’s now multithreaded and on all systems it will be just, well, faster.

The UI will no longer scroll itself out of view.

Version 2.0.x ALPHA

Fonts and Symbols – an experiment to see if inserting text as polygons is a useful tool, in lieu of better features appearing in WED.

Version 1.0.2 – 2016-09-28

Wedbing now opens a browser window using the generic location ‘localhost’ rather than your machine’s name.  Apparently, Mac OS X Sierra (10.12) forces this fix. I say ‘apparently’ as unfortunately for me, Sierra also forces the issue of me considering a new Mac (whats wrong with my SSD’d 2007 iMac!)

Non-functional improvements: Internal library updates.

Version 1.0.1 – 2016-01-03

It’s been many months since the first dreaded ‘file corrupted’ bug, so I’m confident the fix worked! Lets take Wedbing out of beta.

Also, there won’t be any more pop-ups while typing into the x-plane location box, and you will be told if a download didn’t have any tiles at the requested zoom level.

Version 0.0.7 – 2015-06-04

Will now still export if ‘show labels’ is off for Bing maps.
Will now still export if no airport present in WED file.

Version 0.0.6 – 2015-06-01

Windows users with X-Plane on a different drive should just work now (avoiding the work-around in the FAQ).  Please delete any ‘’ files you may have created (as the FAQ had advised).

Version 0.0.5 – 2015-05-31

Changes to reduce ‘Internal server error’ generic errors,

  • including fix to write settings file to a user-location, not the location the app was started (can break Windows if ran from ‘Program files’),
  • and a fix to getting the first-loaded scenery-map-location correct after startup.

Improved detection of when the X-Plane home location is edited, as well as better indication as to when its right or wrong.
Some wording improvements.
Explicitly set UTF-8 character encoding when saving – I’m hoping this may fix the occasional file corruption reports.

Version 0.0.4 – 2015-05-28

Update to reduce some ‘Internal server errors’ on first start-up.

Version 0.0.3 – 2015-05-20

First public released to
Progress counter during the ‘Make visible’ process.

Build 3 – 2015-04-27

Map now centers on selected Custom Scenery.
Auto open Wedbing browser user-interface on launch.
Button to re-open Wedbing browser user-interface.

Build 2 – 2015-04-25

Much improved App starting/stopping (no more command prompt or scrolling text!).
Custom-scenery list updates improved, after user edis their x-plane home setting.

Build 1 – 2015-04-18

Ability to use Bing map service, zoom to an area, press a button and see the area in WED.
