Problem with AI traffic when using payware Aircraft

Recommended Posts

Okay so I have installed AI traffic following the instructions in this link http://www.avsim.com/topic/437933-an-easy-guide-to-populating-x-plane-10-with-ai-aircraft-for-new-x-plane-users/ The A.I was working great when I was flying in the default 747 but when I use either of my payware aircraft (Jardesign A330 and FlighFactor 757) the AI just sit at the gate doing nothing and none of the aircraft in the air land either, have tried multiple airports with no joy. Any help would be appreciated.

Okay so it looks like i've found the problem, I had a look at the common plugins between the 2 payware aircraft and the only one I could find was one called SASL, I'm not too sure what this one does but on disabling it AI traffic started moving again. Is this plugin important and can I expect any side affects of disabling it?

SASL is the plugin that manage all the avionics of those aircrafts, you can't disable or remove it if you want to use them.

I believe both A330 and 757 are managing some datarefs used by AI traffic, you could try with other aircrafts (pay and free) whose do use SASL in order to check that behaviour (SASL himself can't do that)... do the log.txt show anything about AI traffic?

Yeah just found out I can only disable it if I don't want my aircraft to do anything. :) Just tried loading myself in the default 747 United and AI in my payware a330 and that works but then it didnt load the SASL plugin. I cant see anything in the log that stands out but then I'm really unfamiliar with X-Plane as only got it a couple of days ago.

Just Loaded up with 1 AI aircraft so the log regarding AI was not so big and this was all that was reported.

Not sure if there is anything useful in that.

Partial logs are useless, you need to attach (no copy & paste) it to a message in order to check it entirely.

1 AI aircraft?

Do you mean you've set 1 or 2 under Aircraft->Aircraft & Situations->tab Other Aircraft->number of aircraft?

I don't know if you're aware of that, 1 means your aircraft is the only one around so you do need to set a number greater than 1 in order to have AI traffic.

Well, believe or not me too have some problems while trying to understand how to attach a file, I'm no longer able to find the button.

I gave a look at your log, no strange behaviours inside of it so I checked my 757 with two AI planes and AI traffic works fine... try to increase the number and/or check local map (you may need to zoom it out) in order to see where AI aircrafts are actually placed.

Okay so I had the AI set to 20 and it's the same when I'm in the standard 747 all the AI move around fine but then loading up my A330/757 I encounter the same problem. Really frustrating flying around with no one around talk about immersion breaker.

Very strange, as I said I can't speak for A330 as I don't own it but with the 757 all is fine... try this: go to the root folder of X-Plane then go to the Output folder, inside of it you'll find the preferences folder, rename it and relaunch the simulator (it's a sort of hard reset, like the very first time you launched X-Plane), set the rendering options and the AI planes then try again with the 757.

So I tried removing both A330 and 757 and then reinstalling just the 757 but that didn't work then I did what you suggested and fingers crossed it looks like its sorted. Now I don't know if I want to try reinstalling the A330 just in case it breaks again.  Thanks a lot for your help much appreciated.

I believe there's no need to reinstall those planes, it would sound very very strange to me that both of them would have the same issue... in the next days do some other tests and let us know if it works fine.
