AI Traffic in P3DV2.2

Recommended Posts

Are any of the various AI Traffic providers currently making native installers for P3DV2.2? I am aware there are several  "workarounds" but I don't want to mess with my P3DV2.2 installation or use EMT.

If you have UT2 working in FSX then there is no need for a separate install or use the EMT.  It's just a case of adding a line to the P3D cfg and an entry in the exe.xml.

Dean, I agree, UT2 is nothing but excellent under Prepar3d2. I tried MyTraffic, UT2, and Traffic 360, and UT2 is much superior.

 

To answer the original question, the only developer I know actually being working on a native P3D2 Version is Burkhard Renk with MyTraffic. Seems to be still a way to go, though.

 

I doubt we will ever see a Prepar3d2 version of UT2 for two reasons. (i) The odd product policity of Flight 1 towards Prepar3d, (ii) from their forum, I am under the impression, the main developer has more or less abandoned coding. - I'll happily be proven wrong in both cases.

 

Kind regards, Michael

Thank you for the answers.

@Dean - I don't have any AITraffic Programme yet . On my main  flightsim computer now I do not have FSX installed. It is installed on my client computer in a 2 computer set up. I used WOAI in FSX.

@Michael - sounds like I am going to have to use "workarounds" then. Its just a case of deciding which programme to buy.

Open Prepar3D.CFG add the following line to the [Main] section.  Don't forget to insert your path to FSX.

 

SimObjectPaths.9= your path to FSX\SimObjects\UT2 Aircraft

 

 

 

Looking at my set up I didn't use the exe.xml.  If you have FSUIPC open FSUIPC4.ini and add -

 

[Programs]

Run1=READY, KILL, "your path to FSX\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\UT2Services.exe"

I tried MyTraffic5.4b and UT2. Given a "comparable" amount of traffic, I found UT2 to be less hard on frames (and better configurable).

Hi,

 

yes, you have to insert that line into prepar3d.cfg and either the services call into fsuipc4.ini or the corresponding entry

 

<Launch.Addon>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Name>UT2</Name>
    <Path>J:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\UT2Services.exe</Path>
    <NewConsole>True</NewConsole>
  </Launch.Addon>

 

into exe.xml (which i did). I installed it via the EMT, but it should work directly either.

 

Kind regards, Michael

Another reason to avoid any F1 purchases moving forward.

 

I do, even though they were always my go-to source for addons since I started simming again in 2001.

MY path:

SimObjectPaths.9= C:\Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\UT2 Aircraft  ( Is it  OK?)

 

I have FSUICP , but  I can not locate the  FSUIPC4.ini . Where is hiding? :huh:

The FSUIPC4.ini is in the same directory as fsuipc itself, i.e. in the "modules" directory.

I installed UT2 and updated it PERFECTLY with the migrate tool.....I assume it would work as well with just changing the path but don't quote me on it...

 

It works great.....

You have file extensions switched off in Windows explorer, switch it on (Google how to do that). The forth file from below is the ini file

This is strange. I don't recall if I used the Migrator tool or not, but I do recall Installation went quite straight and there were no issues. There are a lot of people using UT2 under Prepar3d2 now.

 

If it does not work using the Migrator tool, I'd try it the other way and install it directly. I think, it allows to choose the installation directory by hand. Of course, you have to add the exe.xml and prepar3d.cfg  entries by hand, then.

 

Kind regards, Michael

World of AI also a good option. That is what I use. Models are very nice and it is free.

Did you convert the flightplans to the fsx format or did you leave them at the fs9 standard ?

I have WOAI working well in P3D v2.2 but going to put UT2 on now I've seen this thread. The only thing stopping me is the AI separation, I use to use AI smooth in FSX but it doesn't work in P3D has anyone seen any alternatives or workarounds

 

Cheers
