Recommend Traffic add on that doesnt cause double AFCADS?

Recommended Posts

I have been building my new fsx since coming to Steam and was hoping some one would recommend a traffic add on that will not cause those ugly default bleed through in my add on airports. I don't want to reinstall My Traffic Profesional because it seems to be the primary offender and is not very user friendly to get up and running. Has any one had better luck with FSX with any other traffic program that does not mess up your scenery? All advice appreciated.

I use MT6 and had similar issues, but they are easy to fix: just move the bgl files of MT to another directory and you will be fine. What you will lose are specific gate assignments to airlines, if I remember correctly.

MT6 also adds parking, so that more AI is present at airports.

With AI Traffic addons other than MyT 6, the many of the default airports will not handle the AI traffic properly.  MyT 6 adds gates and parking spots (as Ernest points out) to accommodate new aircraft types and higher airport traffic densities. As Peter stated, the specific airlines will travel to the correct gates. Without all this, one gets stalls, where AI traffic gets either bottlenecked on the ground or ends up wandering away to some odd location.

But the above is the key. MyT 6 is designed to override the default airports. If one has detailed 3rd party airports also installed, bad things happen. As Peter states, one can just go through and rename the MyT 6 version from xxx.BGL to xxx.BGL.passive (or whatever as long as it's not BGL).

 

This process is easy if one has only a few 3rd party airports that overlap with the MyT 6 versions. But if one has all those ORBX freeware airports also installed, the process can become quite tedious. I got around that by downloading a text list of all the ORBX airports and then writing a Windows macro to automatically rename (disable) the MyT 6 versions. 

 

It is never a good idea to have more than one 3rd party version of a specific airport installed.

Hello Jay,

Most interesting. Would you care to share this macro? I have a list of the 3rd party airports that I have installed, maybe I can modify your macro to include those as well.

Peter, please forgive my ignorance but I am not too IT wise. Learning by trial and error. {mostly error.} Can you do this through the My Traffic Configurater What other directory would you move them to? Do you have to do this for every airport with the double AFCADS?

Thanks Vic

Peter,

 

Here's a far simplified version as a Windows BAT file, that should work on any version of Windows with just a small amount of editing to correct the folder names. It may not be completely up to date with all the newest ORBX freeware airports. Also, many of the ORBX airports do not have MyT 6 equivalents, but the errors are just ignored. You can improve the BAT file by using IF EXIST blocks:

if exist < file name > (
    rem file exists
) else (
    rem file doesn't exist
)

This simple version misses a few files because Burkhard "misnamed" some airports with two underscore characters rather than one. You can find those few by hand if needed.

 

Jay

Peter, please forgive my ignorance but I am not too IT wise. Learning by trial and error. {mostly error.} Can you do this through the My Traffic Configurater What other directory would you move them to? Do you have to do this for every airport with the double AFCADS?

Thanks Vic

If one only has a few instances of duplicate versions of a specific 3rd party airport,this is much easier to do with the Windows Explorer. For example, let's say that I have the ORBX freeware version of KBTV installed. Navigate to:

 

<drive:>\MyTraffic Professional\MyTraffic\Scenery

 

Then rename BR2_KBTV.bgl to BR2_KBTV.bgl.orig

 

A properly constructed 3rd party airport should completely mask the default FSX/P3d version. However, there is no guarantee that two 3rd party versions of the same airport would mask each other. They could even have different default elevations, let alone different exclusions, boundaries, runways and other components.

 

One should keep in mind an additional issue. ORBX "full fat" regions also contain many revised airports. Most are very small and are not likely to overlap with the MyT 6 versions, but if a problem is encountered (like trees on the runway or disappearing taxiways), then the MyT 6 version of the airport should also be disabled. The best utility for finding duplicate airports is ScruffyDuck's freeware Simple Airport Scanner:

 

http://www.scruffyduck.org/simple-airport-scanner/4584282795

 

One last thought. The order of one's scenery library often prevents conflicts between 3rd party airports from being visible, just because of the way that each version does the masking of the default airport. In that case, the no action alternative is the best approach.

Hi Vic,

 

I don't think you can do it with the configurator, but I might be wrong here (you do that once, get it working, and then forget about it :) ) What I did (under Win 10) is the following:

 

1) Open the file explorer and go to the directory where MyTraffic is installed. I guess that's normally C:ProgramFiles x86\MyTraffic or so, but I have it at a custom location.

 

2) create a new folder and name it "DisabledFiles" and go to it.

 

3) Open a new File Explorer Window and go to the Scenery subdirectory of MyTraffic

 

4) Click "Select all"

 

5) Drag all files from the Scenery directory to the DisabledFiles directory

 

6) Done :)

 

 

@Jay: thanks a lot for the script, but I was more interested in how you created it :) I wanted to included many 3rd party airports as well, so I need to create a macro like the above, but with many more entries. If you don't have it anymore no problem, I can probably figure something out. In any case, thanks for the inspiration :)

 Another easy way to fix the op's problem is to just disable the Mytraffic addon airport files altogether. It can't hurt to try it out, the included MyT6 airport files are only minor tweaked over default as it is.

 

 Simply go to your scenery library and disable the MyTraffic scenery entry.

Wanted to thank all the above for the advice ref. MT6. After hours of trys and fourm research I finally finally got it running and know how to get rid of the double AFCADS. I swannee I don't know whats worse, rebuilding a sim from scratch or rebuilding an engine.

A script only makes sense if you have a lot of MyT 6 airports to disable. This(below) is not how I did it, but it's a simplified approach and will also work.

 

Start with a text list of the airport codes, then open the file in Excel and create columns that hold all the repetitive text strings like "rename" and the parts of the MyT 6 BGL file names that are identical for each airport. Then make a blank column that merges all the columns into one text column. Copy/paste that column to a new column, delete all the other columns. Then save it as a TXT file, open it in Notepad and add the specific commands that are needed to match the location of the MyT 6 scenery folder. Save as a BAT file and run it from command prompt.

I will try this next weekend.

 Another idea that's very simple is to open your MyTraffic\Scenery folder and just remove each AF2 or BR2 file that you know you have addon scenery for. No need to even rename it, just move them out of the scenery folder so that it's not read by the sim.

I also have this problem. Will removing the file from mytraffic 6 mean that I won't get AI working at that airport? I mean what functionality will I lose if so?

No your addon airports afcad will then be the one used, Ai will still work properly.

The purpose of the Mytraffic afcads is primarily to give the default airports the correct airline gate assignments, your third party afcads should already be set up to place the correct airlines at the right parking spots.
