Hello,

 

I installed the replacement effect files from the first post but I'm still seeing the 'heavenly wakes' where the wakes go up in the air instead of on the water..

Please install Global Ai Ship Traffi v1 and 200 AI Ships and Ai Ship Traffic v2 and your problem will be gone at least for the ships in this project.

Here's a simple way to install this excellent package into P3Dv4 (will not work for other sim versions) using the new add-on.xml method.

As of 04 SEPT 2017:

  1. Download Global AI Ship Traffic V1
  2. Extract it into a temporary folder
  3. Download 200 AI Ships and AI Ship Traffic V2
  4. Extract that into a temporary folder
  5. Move all six folders (Effects, Images, Scenery, Simobjects, Sound, route maps) from the V2 temporary folder INTO the V1 temporary folder.  Over-write all files. I also renamed the V1 folder to V1+2 to indicate the two have been combined
  6. Create a new text file named "add-on.xml" in the main V1+2 folder and add this text then save:
  7. <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="4,0" id="add-on">
        <AddOn.Name>Global AI Ship Traffic V1+2</AddOn.Name>
        <AddOn.Description>Global AI Shipping by Henrik Nielsen</AddOn.Description>
        <AddOn.Component>
            <Category>SimObjects</Category>
            <Path>SimObjects\Boats</Path>
        </AddOn.Component>
    	<AddOn.Component>
            <Category>SimObjects</Category>
            <Path>SimObjects\Animals</Path>
        </AddOn.Component>
        <AddOn.Component>
            <Category>Scenery</Category>
            <Path>Scenery\World\Scenery</Path>
            <Name>Global AI shipping traffic</Name>
        </AddOn.Component>
        <AddOn.Component>
            <Category>Effects</Category>
            <Path>\Effects</Path>
        </AddOn.Component>
        <AddOn.Component>
            <Category>Sound</Category>
            <Path>Sound</Path>
        </AddOn.Component>
    </SimBase.Document>

    Or you can download my add-on.xml file HERE

  8. Move this V1+2 folder to "My Documents/Prepar3D v4 Add-ons" (or other folder you've set up to contain your P3Dv4 addons)

The next time you start P3Dv4, you should be prompted to activate this addon - click yes.

All set!

 

Please let me know if you test this and how it works for you!  I've only tested in the Boston/Providence/NY/NJ areas so far, but working fine.

 

Thanks,

sg

Hi Andreas,

do you have installed any addon to edit AI traffic?

Lieber Manfred,

 

Nein, habe nur die Beiden Pakete installiert, dann natürlich auch deine Schiffe.

Having lost all my ships for some reason, should I un-install before installing again?

Regards

Und sind die Linien nun nach Henriks Hinweis verschwunden?

Have the nuns disappeared after Henrik's reference?

I reinstalled global_ai_ship_traffic_v1, and
200_ai_ship_and_ai_ship_traffic_v2.
followed both install instructions very carefully
but still no ships.
Any help will be appreciated.
I'm using Windows 7, FSX/Acceleration, and DX10.

And you have checked that you have set ships to 10% in settings in FSX?

Yes, I set ships to 5% as recommended, and when that didn't work tried increasing %. No luck.

Have you tried Little Navmap? It can show any ai ships within a certain rage from your airplane (PLUS a lot of other things). If you can see the ai planes in it, but not the ai ships then there's something wrong. Maybe there is some kind of FS) model ai aircraft in your sim, and that's enough to not show any ai ships. Sorry, that's all I can think off, but maybe Henrik who made most of the ai ships have some advice.

First thing is to look for FS9 style AI traffic bgl files  - e.g. WOAI. They must be transformed to FSX style. If you don't have a lot of AI air traffic and want a quick test to see if some local traffic bgl gives problems, try to take a flight around Ushuaia in Argentina - there you will also find ships but probably no interferring other traffic files.
