How do I remove posky aircraft as AI???

Recommended Posts

Guest AA727

Can someone explain how I can remove posky aircraft from being used as AI?? I have been using project AI's aircraft and they are much more frame rate friendly.Also the posky aircraft sometimes just sit there and don't move which causes a big traffic jam..Thanks in advance!!JC

JC,Just change the "Title" line in the aircraft.cfg file for the POSKY aircraft you want to remove. Then change the "Title" line of the aircraft you want to use in its place to the title that WAS the POSKY aircraft if you have something to replace it with. Otherwise, use TTools and redo the AI completely.

JC,This is going to seem a bit long winded but here goes.I will use the default AI aircraft (the way AI is setup in the original FS configuration) as my example. Here is a list of the original AI aircraft as extracted from the traffic.bgl file by TTools:AC#1,200,"Beech Baron 58"AC#2,315,"Beech King Air 350"AC#3,430,"Boeing 737-400"AC#4,430,"Boeing 737-400 Paint1"AC#5,430,"Boeing 737-400 Paint2"AC#6,491,"Boeing 747-400"AC#7,491,"Boeing 747-400 Paint1"AC#8,491,"Boeing 747-400 Paint2"AC#9,482,"Boeing 777-300"AC#10,482,"Boeing 777-300 Paint1"AC#11,482,"Boeing 777-300 Paint2"AC#12,143,"Cessna 208 Caravan Amphibian"AC#13,143,"Cessna 208 Caravan Amphibian Paint1"AC#14,143,"Cessna 208 Caravan Amphibian Paint2"AC#15,175,"Cessna Grand Caravan"AC#16,175,"Cessna Grand Caravan Paint1"AC#17,175,"Cessna Grand Caravan Paint2"AC#18,129,"Cessna Skyhawk 172SP"AC#19,129,"Cessna Skyhawk 172SP Paint1"AC#20,129,"Cessna Skyhawk 172SP Paint2"AC#21,156,"Cessna Skylane 182R RG"AC#22,140,"Cessna Skylane 182S"AC#23,140,"Cessna Skylane 182S Paint1"AC#24,140,"Cessna Skylane 182S Paint2"AC#25,140,"Cessna Skylane 182S Paint3"AC#26,464,"Learjet 45"AC#27,195,"Mooney Bravo"AC#28,265,"De Havilland Dash 8-100"AC#29,265,"De Havilland Dash 8-100 Paint1"AC#30,265,"De Havilland Dash 8-100 Paint2"AC#31,437,"McDonnell-Douglas/Boeing MD-83"AC#32,437,"McDonnell-Douglas/Boeing MD-83 Paint1"AC#33,437,"McDonnell-Douglas/Boeing MD-83 Paint2"AC#34,124,"Piper Cherokee 180"AC#35,124,"Piper Cherokee 180 Paint1"AC#36,124,"Piper Cherokee 180 Paint2"Now open the aircraft.cfg file for the 747-400 with notepad. It looks something like this:&l;fltsim.0&r;title=Boeing 747-400sim=Boeing747-400model=panel=sound=texture=kb_checklists=Boeing747-400_checkkb_reference=Boeing747-400_refatc_id=N700MSatc_airline=Global Freightwaysatc_flight_number=1123atc_heavy=1ui_manufacturer=Boeingui_type=747-400ui_variation=Global Freightwaysdescription=More than 30 years ago, the 747 made its first trip from New York to London. Since then, it's become the standard by which other large passenger jets are judged. Its size, range, speed and capacity were then, and are now, the best in its class.&l;fltsim.1&r;title=Boeing 747-400 Paint1sim=Boeing747-400model=panel=sound=texture=1kb_checklists=Boeing747-400_checkkb_reference=Boeing747-400_refatc_id=N700MSatc_airline=Landmarkatc_flight_number=1123atc_heavy=1ui_manufacturer=Boeingui_type=747-400ui_variation=Landmark Airlinesdescription=More than 30 years ago, the 747 made its first trip from New York to London. Since then, it's become the standard by which other large passenger jets are judged. Its size, range, speed and capacity were then, and are now, the best in its class.&l;fltsim.2&r;title=Boeing 747-400 Paint2sim=Boeing747-400model=panel=sound=texture=2kb_checklists=Boeing747-400_checkkb_reference=Boeing747-400_refatc_id=N700MSatc_airline=World Travelatc_flight_number=1123atc_heavy=1ui_manufacturer=Boeingui_type=747-400ui_variation=World Travel Airlinesdescription=More than 30 years ago, the 747 made its first trip from New York to London. Since then, it's become the standard by which other large passenger jets are judged. Its size, range, speed and capacity were then, and are now, the best in its class.Notice how the "TITLE" line of each &l;fltsim.x&r; is different and matches a line in the AI aircraft list. Each and every model and livery must have a unique "TITLE" line. If you change the "TITLE" line in the aircraft.cfg file in any way then it will no longer match the corresponding line in the AI list. Therefore, when AI goes to load the aircraft which is based on the "TITLE" line, it won't find a match, thus, no aircraft will fly the routes that are associated with that aircraft.Conversly, if I download an aircraft and install it, then edit its aircraft.cfg and change the "TITLE" line to match one of the lines in the AI list, then THAT aircraft will be loaded by AI and fly those routes that are associated with it. Just remember when doing this to use aircraft that are similar. Like you can replace the 747 with a DC-10 or L1011 but not with a Piper or a DC-4 as they can't fly as fast as the large jetliners can and wouldn't be able to complete the route in the same amount of time.Make any more sense to you now?
