Ultimate Traffic 2 P3D - Installation

Recommended Posts

Afternoon,

 

I've ran through the setting up of Ultimate Traffic 2 in P3D post by - Rob Ainscough - http://forum.avsim.net/topic/449212-ultimate-traffic-2-in-p3d-v23/

 

I seem to ran into a problem which I don't know how to resolve, I don't have any AI traffic at all; I'm posting some screens below so you're able to see my current setup.. Do I have something pointing to the wrong location?

 

What have I done wrong? I think I've followed it right, does anyone see the problem I've made?

 

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

1. Copy Prepar3d.exe and rename to FSX.exe

2.  Add registry key for FSX location that points to P3D - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0 – value = V:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3d v2

3.  Edit the Prepar3D.cfg and add under:

        [Main]

        SimObjectPaths.9=SimObjects\UT2 Aircraft

4.  Edit the EXE.XML and add:

 

  <!-- Unlimited Traffic 2 -->

  <Launch.Addon>

     <Disabled>False</Disabled>

     <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>

     <Name>UT2</Name>

     <Path>V:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\UT2Services.exe</Path>

     <NewConsole>True</NewConsole>

  </Launch.Addon>

5.  Create a fake FSX config directory under:

C:\Users\(my profile)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

Copy over all the contents from the corresponding Prepar3d2 directory and copy the prepar3d.cfg to fsx.cfg

Why are you having to work so hard the latest estonia tool installs this with no tweaks at all other than (shown below) - time is worth way more than this tool costs 

 

[Main]

        SimObjectPaths.9=SimObjects\UT2 Aircraft

I did it the easy way. I purchased a copy of the Estonia Migration Tool, and installed UT2 as normal. Then I added the SimObjectPaths statement to the P3D.cfg file. UT2 is working just fine.

 

EDIT: Richard beat me to it :smile:

Ok, I've purchased it.. Haha!

 

Is it a simple process? Quick instructions on what I need to do; Enable Virtual FSX and then install the UT2 installer?

Exactly brother and just add the simobjects line - should be  good to go - they have made changes to the estonia tool as it was not this easy as the last version of the tool

Ok, installation perfect added that line to my Prepar3d.cfg but I still don't see traffic?

 

Any thoughts?

Everything is fine here. The only problem I have at the moment is that I keep finding new airline schedules to integrate into UT2! I added six over the weekend, and I am in the process of adding another thirteen at the moment! There are a handful of others that I am also waiting for (including Enter Air and CSA Czech Airlines), and I have just noticed a couple of others that I need to check out to see if they include any flights to the UK. Hopefully, I will get these all done by the weekend so that I can start flying again!! :blink:

Do you hear the audio message "Ultimate Traffic 2 initialised" when you load P3D?

Nope I didn't hear that sound, have I forgotten to enable or add or do something?

You have to set up a schedule in ut2 menu - do you load all the planes in the ut2 menu ? this takes a long time - is ut2 menu showing up in P3D addons pull down ?

UT2 should be automatically initialised after it has been installed. I don't remember having to do anything to get that audio message to play. Can you please load Ultimate Traffic 2 itself (double click on the icon), and then select Traffic Options from the menu. Let me know what the settings are for Weekly and Daily traffic density, and whether they are enabled or not.

Do you load all the planes in the ut2 menu ? this takes a long time - How is this done? :/ - I'm new to UT2

 

Is ut2 menu showing up in P3D addons pull down ? I don't see anything relating UT2 in P3D Menus

Richard Sennett - Would this process also work for MyTraffic X?

 

Adding:

 

SimObjectPaths.9=MyTraffic\Aircraft

 

And I'm assuming it's take adding it to the 'Addon Library'

Hello to every one, !

 

I'm Eros and I bought and installed Ultimate Traffic 2 (using the last version of Migration Tool ) on Prepar3d v2.4. I edited the Prepar3d.cfg, the EXE.XML and the DLL.XML following the instructions of this Forum but I can not see any traffic on Prepar3d.

At my Traffic Options I have set  "Display Traffic " 90% for Weekly Traffic Density and Daily Traffic Density;  At the Database Management if I select UT2Weekly_Official I can see all the Traffic, but if I choose I can see only General Aviation (UTD).

 

Please, let me know if I`m missing some step or what can I do to see my UT2 on Prepar3d

 

Many thanks

 

Eros

If you used the Estonia Migration Tool to install UT2 into P3D, then you did not need to mess about with any of those files.

I also thank you for the support you gave to AJL... It readily solved me from the nightmare of having to adjust everything manually. Works beautiful!
