Flight Plans

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a question in regards to AI flight plans. I've never downloaded any before. So how do they work? I see that avsim has some available. After they are downloaded, then what do you do next? For instance I saw a flight plan for the Delta Shuttle so how would I put this into fs2002? Thanks for any responses, S.

Quick and dirty:First make sure you get TrafficTools and read the manual that comes with it. I may answer 90% of your questions.This utility will decompile the FS traffic.bgl and produces three files: aircraft.txt, airports.txt and flightplans.txtThese three files can be edited with any text editor.The flightplans you download go into the flightplans.txtYou need to associate the flightplans you downloaded with aircraft that will fly these plans and the airports they fly in and out of.Read the manual that comes with TrafficTools. Really easy.When done, compile the three textfiles back a *new* traffic.bgl and you're set. FS will now use the new flightplans and aircraft.TTools only decompiles and compiles.There are a dozen of other utilities around that go into more specific editing and they all use TrafficTools as a basis.AI TrafficMover, Traffic Shuffler, AI Traffic to just name a few.See what you like best.Scan the site for tutorials. There are plenty out there.Also check the TTools forum on this site.When you fully understand the matter, there are almost unlimited possibilities. Especially when you start combining flightplans with your own AFCAD airport designs. You can have specific airlines/aircraft taxi/park in specific aiport area's. Stuff like that. In that repsect you might want to check out Bill Molony's KATL: aikatlm1.zip in the Library.It shows you how far you can go with this. Great example!Good luck!- Gideon (EHAM)http://www.lisanne.net/VarPhoto/emb120sig.jpg
