Creating a Custom AI Package

Recommended Posts

Today, we'll be looking at what it takes to create a custom AI traffic package. By request of a user, we will focus on FedEx, though the procedure works similarly for any AI you want to create.

 

First, it's a good idea to grab the following tool: http://stuff4fs.com/open.asp?Folder=AIFP&JS=TRUE

 

This is AI Flight Planner, AIFP for short, and is what you need to generate the flight plans.

 

Next, you'll want to read the manual, which is here. http://stuff4fs.com/Applications/AIFP/AI%20Flight%20Planner.pdf

 

To get started on creating a custom AI package, you'll need some flight plans. The latest FedEx AI can be downloaded in our library here. http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=aig_fedex_summer_2013.zip&Author=&CatID=root

 

Once you have this, you will require aircraft to fly these routes. Once again, we return to the library. You will need FedEx paints for the A300, A310, B727, B757, B777, MD-10, and MD-11. The download for the flight plans contains exact details on which aircraft you need. Technically, you can use any aircraft you want, so long as its name in the aircraft.cfg matches that in the flight plan.

 

After you get all your planes installed (instructions on how to do this are included in their read me), you are ready to generate the AI traffic files. Just open up AIFP, and open the flightplan. Ensure that none of the aircraft turn up as red, and then click compile and save. Make certain that this file makes it into your scenery folder, or else your cool new FedEx planes won't be flying around. Also, if you're seeing red aircraft names, it means that nothing matches the name in the flight plan's list of aircraft names.

 

 That's all there is to throwing together an AI package.

 

 Thanks all,

 

 Hope to see you around here frequently!

is there an automated way to make ai for a complete country? I ask as I was looking at my England and Wales photographic scenery plus  Gary Summon's all-England-airfields and realised what was missing. It was all made in 2004 and 2005 and as a result I have no ai for any of it! I cannot imagine making ai for all of England with TTools. I don't have a month with nothing else to do. So, what is the sneaky way to get it done?

Unfortunately, that's not really possible. There is a tool called GA-Traffic that lets you select aircraft to randomly sprinkle around the world, which is really nice. It is, as the name suggests, only for GA stuff, so for airlines, I'd suggest WOAI. For military, you could look at MAIW.

 

GA-Traffic - http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=fsx_ga-traffic_releasecandidate2.zip&Author=&CatID=root

 

WOAI - http://world-of-ai.com/

 

MAIW - http://www.militaryaiworks.com/

 

Hope it helps.

I remember having GA traffic a long time ago. Guess as there is no shortcut that's the way to go. Thanks for that.
