Planes that might potentially crash on you (or you on them depending on the perspective)... :( Have a look here!

What exactly do you mean by this? That you had all AI traffic disabled or that you couldn't see any?If its the former then it's a bit weird, but if it was the latter then no problem. Don't think it's always easy to visually spot other planes, even during the night.A real pilot can tell us!

In the PMDG menu there's an option "display all traffic", which -if checked- will show any other plane within the ND range. If un-checked, it'll display only potential threats (which is the case in reality).If you haven't done so, please read the manual. Sounds boring, I know, but you'll learn a lot. Besides, reading is necessary if you wanna become a real pilot (as you mention in another thread) and English is your mother tongue so it's not a big deal. Imagine non-English speaking people (like me) that have to read and understand all these things!!! Believe me it's worth the effort!Happy landings!

I found out that if you have FS Passengers X installed, the TCAS will still work but it won't show any traffic. I had that problem for a while than I uninstalled FS Passengers and I found that the TCAS was working.
