Traffic.blg file locations

Recommended Posts

How does Windows/FS9 use the "User/ApplicationData/Microsoft/FS9" folder which contains a large number of traffic.bgl's.

 

Some traffic.blg's that are located in this folder are not in my World/Scenery folder and vice versa,  while most are contained in both. 

 

Shouldn't all traffic.blg files be located within the FS9 scenery folders?

It doesn't.

Yes.

 

I have never seen traffic files in that location and am not sure how they would even get there.

 

Are they WoAI files?

 

Do you use something like AIFP tp manage your traffic files?

All traffic files should be in scenery/world/scenery if they are being used.  I have no idea how they might have gotten elsewhere unless you use some third party software to manage them.

Thanks for the replies. Most of these are WoAI files. There's a copy of TTools is in there also along with an Aircraft folder containing WoAI, some PAI and other stuff installed by some addon sceneries.

 

Well, the only thing I can think of is.... it may be part of the way Windows backs up files (user data) for its Restore function...sorta like how Windows will use the FS folders in its virtual store whenever for updates on scenery, etc..  I copied the mess of traffic.bgls over to the World/Scenery folder, overwriting the older files, and so far haven't seen any problems...yet.

It isn't a must. Traffic files could be in any other scenery of traffic folders as long as these are activated in scenery.cfg. Several or a lot of traffic files would even be easier to handle having them in a separate traffic folder.

Yes, location-specific AI traffic is nicely handled in the addon scenery folder to which it pertains.

When you switch the scenery off, the traffic goes with it.

 

Route-specific traffic is less easy to deal with in that way.
