AI Aircraft Utility

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,Not sure if this should be in the ttools forum, but I'll try here...Does anyone know of an AI utility that will scan thru the FS2004 Aircraft folder, searching /locating orphan textures that are not attached to any AI aircraft, and AI aircraft variations (fltsim.xx) sections that do not point to an aircraft. i.e. an orphan fltsim.xx section.I thought I had come across something a thread somewhere pointin to utilities that did this, but haven't bee able to locate the right software that can handle this.Thanks for any help you might be able to provide,orbmis

I have TTools, but when I download an aircraft from ai aircraft category, it recommends to copy the aircraft content on Aardvark folder but how can I display this aircraft on traffic. RegardsFontes

TTools comes with a ReadMe, read it. ;-) As for installing traffic, there are various tutorials around, have a look here for example.You need the base model of an aircraft first, then you can add textures, then you can use everything in flightplans.For AIA, check out http://www.ai-aardvark.com. Check out the FAQ first, it's at the bottom.

Hi Mike,,,ACA2005 was certainly a step in the right direction, as it does provide some nice error reporting for texture folders that are not used in an aircraft.cfg file. Also, it was able to find aircraft that were not used in any flightplans, which was quite nice. From reading thru some of the message threads here, it was stated that the amount of time needed to load FS2004 was related to the number of aircraft that had to be loaded up during startup. With this tool, I can find these orphans, and move them aside, hopefully keeping startup time to a minimum.Thanks for the great pointer on a nice utility... certainly a keeper.orbmis
