Thank you for AI Manager, AIG. I have AI. Lots of it!

You're welcome and I hear you. I'm tired of the endless tweaking, I've got things pretty well dialed in for my system. My New Year's resolution was to stop the tweak insanity so I've put it down. Even stopped looking at the FPS. Just flying now and it's really nice.

Precisely. AI was the last piece for me (for now) in my transition to P3D. I kept hearing references to AiG "having everything you need". I kept going over there looking, and while they have tons of info, it looked like I was going to have to roll up the sleeves and start manually compiling flight plans and downloading and assigning models. I happened to be over there looking to read up on changes since FSX and I stumbled upon the AI Manager. 20 minutes later, I had traffic. Gotta love it when a plan comes together.

As to the FPS - same here. I locked the dang thing at 26, and it stays pegged at least 95% of the time. I have NO tweaks. Everything is as LM set it. Every once in a while, it'll stutter and make me mad, so I force myself to remember flying in monochrome ASCII graphics on a TRS-80 (remember the $100 2 axis, 1 button, looks like it was built in shop class and science lab joysticks?) and all becomes well in my universe again. Overall, I've been very happy with P3D.

Just close the application and fire it up back up, you may have to end the task in the Task Manager. The initial collection process on start up of Airports, SimObjects and Flight Plans seems a little bit wonky sometimes, especially if you're firing up the application for the first time or after you update it to the newest version.

Which version are you using? You may try to get help at their forums, they're very quick to respond and are very helpful. The product is still in public BETA so any issues you report will only help future development efforts.

There are a couple of log files in the main folder. Take a look at the end of the one with the newest date. There's always a clue.

I've been watching the development of this the past few months, and actually tried for the first time this morning. This is absolutely marvelous!! Completely revolutionizes AI for me in P3D. I too am considering un-installing UTL. It can be a time hit when first downloading some ai, but it ain't you that is doing the searching. Just click some buttons and go do some chores for a while, (you will have to be present the first time around to log in to the sites that are being downloaded from).

How do we know when new AI becomes availble in the app? 

I really want to watch for my Canadian Airlines.

AirCanada is planned for Winter 2018 release. Here is a dispatch for Winter 2018. https://www.alpha-india.net/forums/index.php?topic=28612.0

Also in the application itself, top menu Online option allows you to check what's available and the other option in the menu lists everything that's available.

No need, unless you have to much change wearing a hole in your pocket.

For sure, I have more than enough Airline AI, but what does one do for GA?

Apparently I've downloaded all possible options which lasted several days in a row, but then I returned to the computer to see that Win10 had rebooted (updated itself). Now when I try to use the program again I can't see what has been downloaded and what not!

Also I can't find ANY airline for Brazil, can anyone point me out how can I download the four major airlines in Brazil? I don't need precise and/or update flightplans, I only need planes flying and taxiing around. Thanks!

LATAM Airlines is available for Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru.

LATAM Cargo is available for Brazil, Chile, Columbia and Mexico

These are in the Winter 2018 set.

Others (GOL, Aerolineas Argentinas) will be part of the Winter 2018 set but are not available yet. The set of airlines planned for the Winter 2018 release is available here.

Released stuff for Winter 2018 is listed here.

See my previous reply to Wanthuyr Filho on where to find the complete list of planned airlines for the Winter 2018 release. Air Canada, Air North, Cargojet, Canadian North and Westjet are planned. I have no idea whether Air Canada includes Jazz and Rouge but I suspect it will.

Obviously you don't need to, but all I can say is that they are superb, especially the 777s and A380s which, IMO, look so much better than any other equivalent AI models available.

If anyone needs the fix for the oversized AI aircraft lighting, use this AI Lights Reborn

This is another fantastic piece of work that the devs should be proud of.

Funny story. I downloaded and installed this while I was doing the same with some other software on Friday, and I simply forgot to startup P3D to see what it did the the lights before I stopped messing around with it. Yesterday evening I was looking at the AI traffic coming and going from BWI in the evening hours and I thought to myself, "Well gee willikers (well.. not exactly) the lights on that AI is looking fine to me. Maybe I don't need to install that sw I downloaded to fix it after all.". This morning, I noticed that I had installed it. That's why the lights on my AI traffic look so good.

Great freeware indeed, a must.

Thanks for your kind words, I love reading positive feedback like this about my creation.

If you like the freeware, you will love the professional edition when it comes out this year.

This software is in dire need of an update.

It needs a Professional version. 😊
