VTBS - Bangkok

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get hold of the airport scenery for the new Bangkok airport (VTBS) but the only place I can locate it is at Siamavsim.com. Only thing is, much of the pertinent info on the website is in Thai and I'm not able to get it translated. Is there someplace else to get the scenery file? It's not on AVSIM or Flightsim.com. I really need this for a lot of my AI flightplans.Much thanks

I think you have to register on the site first, then download and install the VTBS-2006 in the usual way. IIRC there were a couple glitches when first released but these were fixed.scott s..

It is nice, isn't it. One thing though. Do you know how to get AI to appear there? I've no idea how to do this :-(

when I loaded the airport it was loaded with AI's. If the airport is showing in your scenery and you have your AI's 'scheduled' to VTBS, they should be there. Are you sure they're not still going to the older VTBD airport?

How do I tell them to go to VTBS?

It's best to go into AI Travel Mover and the ones that are going to VTBD, just go in and change their destination to VTBS. You may not want to change ALL of them or this airport will be overloaded. I have mine split up. Make sure that VTBS shows in your 'airport.txt' file or you will get an error when you try to re-compile the traffic.

Download TTools, decompile the traffic file, open the flightplans file with wordpad and replace all VTBD with VTBS. Then compile again...and the traffic should be diverted...

According to AI Flightplans that I've been downloading, some flights still go to VTBD. May be mostly cargo.

Hi all,is there anyone who could help me creating a .BGL file which allows to DUPLICATE the same traffic I still have on VTBD, to work ALSO in VTBS?.I use Ultimate Traffic and I do have a fantastic file which allows me to see traffic both in VHHH and Kai Tak (VHXX).That would be great to have it also for BKK.By the way, there's a lovely AI workink file with .exe which works perfectly in VTBD and it is downloadable from SiamAvsim.Should you need it, I can attach it.Please let me know.Look forward to getting a reply.Fortunato

so you want the same AI flights to go to both airports? mmmm, not sure about that one.But tell me about Kai Tak. How do the AI's perform there? Are they able to execute the 'checkerboard' approach without crashing into the mountain? I've been using the new airport since Kai Tak closed.

Thanks Mate,but this is not what I am looking for.I do not want traffic to be diverted. I would like it to have it working BOTH in VTBD and VTBS.With UT, it's easy to divert it, without opening it. It's just a matter of chanhing assignment.I would really love to have life in the two beloved BKK airports.Thanks againF

But if you do that, I think you'll probably also have to have two aircraft at the departure airport leaving at the same time. Just say there is a Qantas flight set to arrive at VTBD AND VTBS like you want. But then you'll also have to put up with two Qantas planes leaving Sydney (one for VTBD and one for VTBS) earlier that day (even though there should really be only one).So you'll see double traffic at airports that have flights going to or from of Bangkok.Subs

Speedbyrd had made a good point about overloading the airport.If you have AITM and are comfortable with using it,then it might be the better suggestion.I use multiple bgl files, so I just diverted the flights in the bigger one leaving about 1/3 of the traffic in the old VTBD.Overloading (i.e having more aircraft than the airports AFCAD parking capacity) will not only cause planes to disappear and do all sorts of strange things, but might also significantly degrade performance.

If you are CX lover, you may also wish to visit this site:http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.htmlHowever, no trace of the "curved approach" file.I have one which works with Ultimate Traffic and with Flightsoft Kai Tak.With Marcel's permission, I'll be glad to send it to anyone requesting it.CheersFortunato

I'm not using Ultimate Traffic or the Flightsoft addon. I'll be glad to try it out if you'd be so kind. I did find the Kai Tak scenery mentioned at CalClassics, but this removes the Chep Lak airport which I don't want to do either.Thanks

Yes, of course.However it has been designed specifically for Flightsoft Kai Tak and Ultimate traffic.As you can see from the website, Marcel was offering 4 combinations:Default Kai Tak/Default Traffic;Default Kai Tak/My Traffic;Flightsoft Kai/Tak/Default Traffic;Flighsoft Kai Tak/My Traffic.Then, I approached him and requested if he could make it also for UT, suggesting him to increase his business with a larger base of possibilities.In two days he sent me the newly compiled file and published on his website another two combinations:Default Kai Tak/Ultimate Traffic;Flightsoft Kai Tak/Ultimate Traffic.Therefore, I fear the version in my possession may not work well or at all.Unfortunately, I tried to contact Marcel again, but didn't reply. Hope everything is fine with him, as he has been very nice.As far as CLK is concerned, you should use vhhh 2005 by Thomas Wong with an appropriate afcad and rest assured it is a lovely experience.Please let me know.CheersFortunato

I have a very nice VHHH which I've been using for a while and it's really nice. May be the one you're talking about. I'll let Kai Tak sit on hold for a while unless you hear something. Meanwhile I have to fuel up for my flight from ZBAA to RJAA. :)
