Hello Brad,
I did some checking and your script does indeed have the same
problem with the routes not being flagged to be saved to an already
existing sector file. There is also another similar problem with the
sphere's of influence not being saved as well.

In order to fix the route problem is after you create the route you
need to set the Modified property to true, I do this after I add the
route to the sector but you could probably do it any time after
creating the route object.

In order to fix sphere of influence problem you need to call the
ModifySystem method on the body you added the sphere to. I suspect
there is a similar undocumented Modified property for bodies as well
that you could probably set to true and it would do the same thing but
this method is documented and it's what I use in all my scripts.

Best Regards,
Alan Bartholet
