Get rid of disturbing AI traffic

Recommended Posts

Hello pilots!

 

I fly with proatcx, but it does not really separate traffic in the air - Because of this I often run into TCAS warnings (descent descent, climb....) which is very annoying on landings and takeoffs.

 

I dont want to switch off AI completely. Is anyone aware of a "delete AI around you" tool which I can use in such situations? Or any other tool like this?

 

Thank you very much!

Yes, if you have a registered version of FSUIPC, it has a Traffic Zapper feature that you can assign a hot key to. Press the assigned hot key and you can zap the traffic in your way or in the near vicinity and it will leave other traffic in the area still intact.

I've tried to assign a key to Traffic Zapper without success. searched the net for help, found none. Would like it if you could explain it, thanks.

I dont have tried it already, but I have researched a bit about possible problems if I get fsuipc and the zapper (in FSX you never know)

Found this, maybe this helps in your case:

It might be preferable to try to get them organised instead. Check out programs like AISmooth, AISeparation, and AIController. The latter can actually make them fly SIDs and STARS properly too!

 

FSUIPC has a Zap facility to Zap an aircraft close and directly in front of you, but it can also be set to zap all in a cylinder around you. Configuring it in the INI file is covered in the FSUIPC Advanced Users guide.

I have PROATC/X and while it still happens occasionally I get a lot less TCAS incursions in PROATC/X then I got with default, or even PFE. The issue I have with separation is on the ground. Like RC4 PROATC/X will hold ground AI to let you pass. On occasion though it does it wrong and stops them right in your way, with no room to turn around it forces me to either wait til they disappear, or just go through them. Other than that, it is the best solution out there for full ATC coverage  gate to gate.

In the meantime I trie AIsmooth as mentioned by Pete - thank you for this - and I have reduced the AI to something around 15%.

And soon I will buy a license for FSUIPC for using traffic zapper.
