[Answered] AI Reborn - status?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Found my way here while googling solutions to the appalling AI movement in P3D and just wondered if you're still working into solving it with your programme?

Many thanks

Hello Mr somebody else (funny name),

Thanks for your interest in our products, I imagine you are enquiring about AI Traffic Reborn Runway Control? if so all my current resources are with the the Beta testing of AI Lights Reborn Professional edition while the second product is still under development, so as soon as the AI Lights Reborn Professional edition is out of the shelf we will continue at full speed with the second product.

Please note we do not work with release dates, neither we reveal any specific details of our development process and products via public forums, as the quality of our products if more important for us, only beta testers and specific key members of the community which have signed our company nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) have access to such information.

All the best,
Simbol

The OP didn't ask for a release date, nor did he ask for "specific details of your development process".  I think he's wondering, as am I, what the AI Traffic Reborn Runway Control product, which you advertise on your website, will do?  Your description of it is a bit vague and cryptic. 

If you're not comfortable discussing it, then perhaps you shouldn't advertise it.  Thanks.

Dave

From the website, the product claims so far:

AI Traffic Reborn Runway Control 

We don't want too reveal much about this new revolutionary tool, but with this add-on you will notice an incredible improvement in runway management for any given airport...
 
I hope there is taxiway/ground control included because runway control is only part of the problem, especially at airports like KSAN when runway 27 is in use.
 
I use RC4.3 and Super Traffic Board to manage traffic and they do a pretty good job at runway management, but I find myself deleting AI because of ground conflicts more than I see go-arounds anymore.
 
AI Smooth did an acceptable job back in the FS9/FSX days for me, but only a very good AFCAD or lowering the traffic sliders came close to solving ground conflicts.
 
I think "smarter" ATC and AI planes are really the only complete solution. For example AI 737 landing KSAN runway 27 does not SLAM on the brakes, but rather goes to the end as instructed by the tower for ground management. But at KBOS runway 27, that same 737 knows to LAHSO of 22L because the tower is telling them to.
 
Maybe easier said than done, but totally necessary to reflect reality better.

Dear all,

As you must understand the product is still on early stage of development, and accordingly I do not wish to do raise promises and expectations that could not be fulfilled later due to external circunstances, there are many variables that can change the stage of any product development, for an instance P3D could introduce restrictions or changes that then would force me to change my plans or product specifications. 

The intentions in the website is to provide a general road map to general public about our plans for the future, in any case please see below the information I have been providing during our last Flight Sim Shows:

The statement about dates and details is just an standard response as I keep receiving request about specific release dates, status and even demanding reports about how far are we with specific source code inside our products, which in my view is a bit too far.

Perhaps I overreacted, and I apologise if this was the case. However please also try to put yourself in my shoes, the flight sim developing world is a complex and difficult business so there is a lot of information that cannot be revealed or disclosed to general public.

Kind Regards,
Simbol

Thanks for the clarification and the additional details about what the product is *intended* to do.

Better AI behavior is something sorely needed and I wish you success in achieving it.

I'll be a buyer once it's available.

Thanks.

Correct.

It is all about traffic flow management, plus many other ideas that I want to implement, and as long as more powerful P3D SDK functionalities are released the more I can do.

Regards,

Simbol
