MYTraffic...Could Be The Best...

Recommended Posts

Hi All,Last week I installed MYTraffic.( It took two minutes to install ) Since that day my flight simming has been great with all the AI and ATC controlling to taxiways as well as the busy skys. In other words I have traffic EVERYWHERE on the ground and in the skies taking-off and landing. Please do not get me wrong I did have AI before MYTraffic was installed, but now it is WOW! with AI. IMHO is should be voted one of the best add-ons for FS2002. It has my vote. This Hobby Just Keeps Getting Better... :-yellow1Kind Regardshttp://www.aavirtual.com/images/aav700_banner.gif

and outside of the US?Sometimes I feel like landing in one of those beautiful South american sceneries....or in Asia...How does it compare with the wonderful, yet imcomplete PAI?

I too enjoy mytraffic and would even more if my computer had not crashed. I have only one question. Do I still need to add gates and parking via AFCAD because I don't feel that I see enough planes.

I have been carefully watching this product. I am interested but wary of it's claims. If it does what it purports to do I am highly intersted and will buy.I will want some kind of add-on that makes the AI ATC a bit more relaxed on some of the rules, for example: 1. I should be able to re-file an IFR if I step away from my computer and they cancel my IFR clearance. 2. I should be able to be in mid-flight and change my plan.and all sorts of things like that.-----------Wilson HinesHEAVY LHC EditorAOL IM: dal276whBush Flying Unlimited: SIXUVI014 "Heavy"http://avsim.com/hangar/air/bfu/logo70.gif

Question for ya Cas. I installed Project AI it it seemed to replace all my flight plans that I had changed for my new liveries. Being unhappy with this I uninstalled it and replaced the flight plans file back with a copy of the one I created before I installed it. My question is did I give Project AI a far shake? Or is it true that project AI will over write your current flight plan file instead of adding to your file? Example was I went to Hub cities and changed the liveries to match planes that use those cities as hubs (Continental in IAH,EWR American in DFW, Northwest in Detroit etc).Kilstorm

...it works!! ProjectAI never worked for me, even after following the somewhat less than intuitive directions for their "auto" installer. I know I'm not alone in this. Also, MyTraffic automatically took care of the multiple runways and AFCAD stuff that I knew I would never get around to myself.The downside? Most of my GA traffic seems to be gone. I've got ATC set at 100% now but Aspen (KASE) is all but abandoned. It used to be wall-to-wall Learjets there before (like reallife!). I wish they had used real schedules too but otherwise I am thrilled.David

Probably the ease of installation but I still prefer PAI since that is what I have been using for months. I have over 1000 aircraft in my aircraft.txt file now, plus another large amount not even being used currently until flightplans are available. 1.7 GB of space being used for PAI repaints.But i do think MyTraffic looks like a good addon for those who don't want to spend hours messing with AI traffic setups.

Hi All,Concerning more traffic at other airports using MYTraffic; soon from my understanding an " editor " will be out. That means you can place aircraft where you like. Judgeing from the ease of MYTraffic, one can only think the " editor " will be just as easy to use...at least I hope so.

How do you do that? I'd like to have lots of PAI traffic too but I have only about 7-8 liveries from their auto-installers. I don't know how to install the unofficial ones. :(

When the Base Proect AI file is installed it will overwrite whatever you have for traffic. BUT! individual AI packs will not. So install the base pack, add your routes, then install the Project AI packs you want.Cas

Geof,If you can't wait for the MyTraffic editor to be released, you can use ttools (or AOM, which is what I used) to add the default ga traffic to MyTraffic.Sidney Schwartz [KPDX]

Sidney,Your suggestion is intriguing but I thought MyTraffic used a different process and wouldn't be affected by TTools. How do you do this more specifically? Thanks!David

hello.Project AI has done an excellent job in creating AI traffic for FS2002. I have installed nearly every repaint and airline autoinstaller they have with World AI scehedules. So far everything has worked fine and my virtual skies are filled with lots of American, South-American, Asian, European and African airlines. Why buy something you can get it for free ? Maybe if there wasnt PAI I would propably have bought My Traffic. Im not too happy with the aircraft paint quality My Traffic has (based on looking at screenshots) and I can find better painted ones from PAI pages for free. I also dont like the fact that My Traffic misplaces the planes eg. inside terminal, when using add-on sceneries like most of my major airports are. So far Im happy with Project AI planes and repaints and I'm not going to buy My Traffic. But the good point is that if you buy My Traffic you support Project AI. In my opinion Project AI is one of the best if not best freeware add-on for FS2002.Jani

Well, who knows,with the MY Traffic fund support, maybe more/all aircraft from PAI will be useable with MY Traffic. Those who wish to have the very easy install ( like me ) can choose My Traffic and those who have no problem with a bit more difficult install can go the PAI freeware. IMHO it is the best of both worlds concerning AI in FS2002.As for as GA aircraft being almost non-exsistant I really hope it will be corrected. I do fly mostly heavies, but do have a blast flying GA aircraft as well and enjoy seeing them at the local airports around where I live, but as GEOFA states: " Also any airport less than class "b" seems to have little if none ". I do feel the editorwill correct this.This Hobby Just Keeps Getting Better... :-yellow1Kind Regardshttp://www.aavirtual.com/images/aav700_banner.gif

The MyTraffic flight plans are stored in MyTraffic.bgl in the folder FS2002/Scenedb/MyTrafficATC/Scenery. MAKE A BACKUP COPY OF THIS FILE AND ALSO YOUR FS2K2 TRAFFIC.BGL FILE. Then...1. Copy MyTraffic.bgl into the FS2002/Scenedb/ATC/Scenery folder.2. In FS2002/Scenedb/ATC/Scenery rename your existing traffic.bgl to something else and rename MyTraffic.bgl to traffic.bgl.3. Use ttools as you normally would to make changes to traffic.bgl.4. When you're done, rename traffic.bgl back to MyTraffic.bgl and copy it back into FS2002/Scenedb/MyTrafficATC/Scenery, overwriting the older MyTraffic.bgl.5. Whatever you renamed your default traffic.bgl to, change it back to traffic.bgl.It's pretty simple as long as you remember which bgl file goes where. :)Sidney Schwartz [KPDX]

My son and I both installed the demo and for some reason the radio guage on FS 737-400 bnecame corrupted and now can not change the freq. Has this happened to any one else? (His computer,too) I,ve tried copying over new guage file but it dosen,t fix it. Is there more traffic in the actual program then in the demo? If so ,I would probably buy it. Any ideas on how to fix short of reinstall of FS 2002? Thanks. Richard605

Everyone! Please disreguard my last post. After a little thought I installed My Traffic demo on my old computer to see if same problem. But it worked just fine,so I have no idea what corrupted radio gauge. I put the demo back on this computer hoping it would fixthe gauge,but it didn,t. I guess will start over and reinstall FS2002. Would like to hear more about My Traffic. Won,t be avaulable until Sunday or Monday so will check it then. Thanks and APOLOGIES to My Traffic people! Richard605
