1) Some parameter names have been changed in new database, but don't worry, even if you leave the old names in your data.cfg file they should work anyway. The plugin replaces them with the currently used (but not in the cfg file!)

Once you upload your data.cfg to the configurator to edit it, the names will be automatically updated to the current ones.

2) You need to "re-assign" some parameters  it in the configurator layout map (you need at leas to click on the switch in the map), and then save the cfg file,  you should see new "Systems" entry in the [Startup] section of the file.

This variables define different systems type configured (including starter system type for different planes)

With this system now all assigned functions are intended to be working on any plane models, independetly on "custom" data in that  models.
