No solution. People complained to MS that the 15 min expiration of stopped traffic in fs02 was locking up traffic at airports because it was too long. So MS made the expiration 5 min in fs04. Who says MS doesn't listen? Be careful of what you wish for.

Should have made it a fs.cfg variable, so people can configure it how they like it... :) Now, AI aircraft won't even wait for 2 back-to-back ai landings....Was looking forward to getting Ultimate Traffic just for the reality of waiting in long lineups at busy airports (when I got a pc capable of running it at a reasonable traffic density :)), but it appears the longest I'll ever wait is about 5 minutes because the 15 planes waiting in front of me will just disappear......I'd make a hopeful comment about a certain file release, but I don't want to turn this into a "release a patch" thread... :D

ehh.. so now there's no way to create realistic traffic. Today morning, I fly KJFK-EGLL, I was waiting for takeoff, AF747 was waiting too.. 5mins, he's gone... :-8 :-mad :-fume Jacek

I just finished sending them an email to make the timeout a fs9.cfg variable, along with the taxi speed, in case the rumours of a patch is true... So, if there's a FS2004, let's hope these settings become configurable... :(

Good idea! Failing a patch for FS2004, hopefully they'd make this configurable for FS2006.Jim
