Hello Dick.

 

When you do a fresh Install, By default all traffic is turned off in Prepar3D settings, have you adjusted these settings and checked again

Hi Poppet

Did you do a full Install or did you update using the Update Installers? 

 

Go here Prepar3D  ► Scenery  ► World  ►  scenery

 

Look for this    trafficAircraft.bgl  It should be down nearly at the bottom,   What does yours say?

Is there any possibility whatsoever that you have a fs2004 based ai model installed? Even a single such incident will shut down 100% of your traffic.

Do you have any Ai Traffic Ad On's.   Did you do a full Install or Update using updater Installers?

I could make a list of the things that were wrong with 3.2, that I noticed during the two days I flew it. My 737 NGX, FS 2 Crew, Acars from my VA , all had intermittent problems. I finally uninstalled it and went back to 3.2, and now everything is working properly. I tried repairing and reinstalling 3.3, to no avail.  :fool:   What a hassle.

Thats good to know Greg - thanks

 

I wish I could help more.  I had traffic at EDDF, Copenhagen, Tampa and a few planes up at altitude.  At least it says that AI works in 3.3.5...but why it isn't for some folks, I don't know.

Thanks Gregg - maybe it will sort itself out - thinking might be a setting in P3D or something - cant crank it up to 100 % - using 35% may be the reason - but most are only using around 35% from what I've seen shouldnt have to crank it up to get them to move - I have movement with freeware ai but only one or two

Hi holliwutt

 

Yes, I totally agreed :smile:


I uninstalled v3.3.5 and made sure everything was cleaned out.  I installed v3.2 and I have the same problem!

I had some real issues with 3.3, not with Traffic but with things like my VA's Acars freezing when trying to start a flight , giving me errors, erratic operation of 737 NGX, problems with FS 2 Crew skipping steps, slow shutdown of P3D including a black screen when shutting down which I have never had,  etc. Most of the problems were intermittent, but the Acars problem was each time. Since the only thing I had changed was the 3.3 Client, I first  reinstalled 3.3, thinking that something had gone wrong with the 3.3  install. No improvement, so then  I uninstalled 3.3 after rebooting PC, and installed 3.2. The Acars problem was still there, and this was the easiest thing to troubleshoot, because the problem was consistent. Then I looked on the forum on my VA for Acars, and found someone else with the same Acars issue after changing to 3.3, so now it pointed to a definite 3.3 problem. Now I am facing a complete reinstall of P3D, which frankly is the last thing I want to do.  I decided to uninstall the client again, as I had just done, and again repeated the rebooting sequence as before, between each step, and this time when I reinstalled 3.2, all my problems with P3D instantly disappeared. ACars issues, NGX issues, FS 2 Crew issues, and even the very slow shutdown which had also developed with 3.3, was gone. Everything was back to normal. 

 

The point of my post, is that you may have to uninstall and reinstall 3.2 more than once to fix any 3.3 issue that has developed. Something maybe be screwy in the uninstall or install procedure, I am not sure since I am not a computer programmer, but this solved my problem. I am certain of one thing, no more P3D upgrades for me.

I have also latest My Traffic Professional6a with latest P3Dv3.

With the suggestion from poppet with slider at 10% i can hardly observe AI planes and moving traffic, this cannot be the reason why i bought MT6a, it's almost not visible !

I am at JFK and put the slider to 80%, is that OK ?  i can observe parked traffic, but still not much movement in the air.

At communicator the sign is green, i would select 2015 shedule, 3 CMD screens popup, after this; no changes, no traffic in the air.

Then i tried interactive traffic, but at this screen popping up, i can only observe a connection with FSX, no change for P3D possible here ?

I have installed this (6.0a) and have nothing. I believe i have followed directions accurately. My Communicator always shows Offline. I have researched various forums. I am using P3dV335with Windows 10. Many thanks. Dave

Just to add to my above Linked post about Installing MyTraffic 6 Manually 
 
The Default Install folder Location for MyTraffic is  C\MyTraffic Professional,  The Installer will Automatically Create this folder and Install there.  
 
If you have installed to the Default location your Path= in simobjects.cfg will be this  Path=C:\MyTraffic Professional\MyTraffic\Aircraft
 
It will look like this in your Simobjects.cfg.  Location Local Disk (C:) ► ProgramData ► Lockheed Martin ► Prepar3D v3
 
[Entry.10] 
Title=MyTraffic Vehicles 
Path=C:\MyTraffic Professional\MyTraffic\Aircraft
Required=True
Active=True
 
Important Question:

 

If you Installed MyTraffic 6 somewhere else as apposed to the Default location, did you Create a folder to Install MyTraffic 6 to?   What did you name this folder ?

 

This is important because it will change the folder path in your Entry in simobjects.cfg ! 

 

For Example:  I am now Installing MyTraffic 6 and have decided to Install to my G Drive,  I will Create a folder called MyTraffic6 and point the Installer to it.  

Please Note:   Notice how i left No spaces when i named this folder!!   You need to spell the name of the folder you created exactly the same including the spaces in your simobjects.cfg,  If you are even one digit it will not work  

 

This will now change the folder path,  So my path= in simobjects is now  Path=G:\MyTraffic6\MyTraffic\Aircraft 

 

It will look like this 

[Entry.10]
Title=MyTraffic Vehicles
Path=G:\MyTraffic6\MyTraffic\Aircraft
Required=True
Active=True

Please Note  If you point the Installer to a different location as apposed to Default and Do Not Create a Folder your Simobjects will look like this 

[Entry.10] 
Title=MyTraffic Vehicles 
Path=G:\MyTraffic\Aircraft 
Required=True
Active=True

 

When you have finished..........

 

Insure you number the [Entry's] correctly going down 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and so on

 

Also you add the My Traffic folder to your Scenery library as shown in the Link i provided

As i reported somewhere else; traffic is now finally working, after reviewing all the above, but what a poor result: at JFK 90% of planes are AtlasAir, on radar i can only observe 2 planes Fedex and one  DHL, slider is from 10% to 50%; only more Atlas air !

I switched to LFMN:  no traffic at all there, back to JFK and waited 3 hrs:  still same result.

In normal menu (not communicator) you can select aircraft files at random bases, OK, system informs it could take 5 minutes to build database, after 10 minutes: a list still with 0 - 0 - 0 - 0 etc...

Not satisfied, lost hours  -  considering asking refund and switch to WOAI

Dont want lots of airborne traffic, nice traffic at airports is enough for me...
