Thanks. When you first fired up AIM, did it request you to log into any accounts and then reclose the window again?

I just downloaded 8.4.6 beta. This version looks very complete. Excellent work, AIG. I noticed a couple of things.

About 7 of my airlines had outdated plans (As shown by having the value of "TRUE" in the 'Outdated' column). All I had to do was highlight each airline, right click on the new flight plan shown in the "Replacements" list, and select Install. Shazam! Current flight plans! 

Under 'Tool' -> 'Settings' -> 'Flightplans' it looks like you can set min and max utilization and recompile (I haven't tried it yet - going to fly with it as-is for a bit first).

Definitely time to go make a donation. I'll have to look up the commercial packages to see how much. AIG is there. I'm more than happy to support them.

I have to say Im glad I stumbled upon this thread.  Starting download all the packs last night and disabled UTL.  These models look 100x better than UTL at least at first glance.  Can't wait to do some test flights tonight!

And don't forget to snag Simbol's most excellent AI Lights Reborn to fix the lights on the models!

Oh yes - that was installed as well.  Very impressed I've become with P3D again!  One thing I've noticed, the traffic sliders don't seem to affect this traffic?  Or did I do something wrong?

EDIT: Just realized they compile @ 1%!

Can anyone explain exactly how the min% and max% utilization works? Mines currently by default on 10% for both.

Does that mean if I set 10% traffic on my sliders I'll get 100%? So if i set my sliders to 5% I'll get half the traffic, etc.

I think (someone correct me if im wrong) that its once you set the slider past that threshold, ALL of that traffic will show.  At least I think thats how I understand this.  I used the random function and recompiled some plans.  Not sure If im doing this right, and would LOVE to know how to adjust multiple BGLs at once.  No way Ill sit here and manually randomize every plan.  I have to do more research.

Literally just saw the option - recompiling now!

Is there a way to compile them so they are adjustable via sliders? Or can you only switch on/off whole BGL files at certain percentages.

If you run through the bulk change, itll randomize what flights pop in at what point you have your sliders at.  The bulk change will randomize each individual BGL's flight plans.  So American's flights instead of all being 1% will be between lets say, 2 and 95%. Then Uniteds, ect ect. But itll bulk randomizes across the lot of them.  Hope that makes sense.

OK, just diving into P3D altogether for the first time this week...  This is a really stupid question so I apologize but do I disable MyTraffic altogether prior to going through the AIGManager OCI or will it run and determine what is installed then I remove the airlines I've installed in AIG from MT6?

I'll get through step one first before I worry about the whole traffic randomization and traffic level configuration lol.

Thank you in advance!

You'll have to manually deactivate any overlapping airlines in MT6. Personally, as somebody who was a user of UTLive, I ended up completely disabling UTLive and instead supplementing AIG's OCI traffic with manually compiled traffic. But that's probably much more laborious than simply deactivating airlines present in MT6... Though I'm not sure how to do that, as I haven't used MT6 in years...

I have UTL installed, but only a few airlines active. Seems like every time I activate an airline in UTL, AIG releases it.

The 737 Max accidents were very sad and unfortunate. And with regard to importance, I'm not trying to put problems encountered in our hobby in even the same galaxy. But AIG has withheld releasing a number of major carrier schedules until the official Max grounding issue is sorted out.

So true. When I started with AIG-OCI, I had to add about 50 airlines/schedules by UTL. Among them were very important ones like Air Canada, China Airines, Avianca and so on. Meanwhile, after some weeks most of the larger airlines are now available via AIG-OCI. Only 15 airlines from UTL remained in my set-up. I guess that I will abandon UTL very soon. Sorry for UTL, but their development of updates (adding new airlines/liveries and flight plans)  was much to slow. The same is true for Traffic Global which I purchased too, unfortunately.

What I'm still missing on the AIG web site is the DONATE BUTTON. I'm more than willing to give at least the same amount of money what I paid for UTL and TG, respectively..

Have you noticed any difference in loading times? FPS? with AIG models vs UTL?

There are only a few of AIG models, most known are the Boeing 757 family. AIG manager uses TFS, FAIB, FPS, Raven AI just to name the most known ones.

Yeah, I went all in LOL.  De-activated MT6 altogether, launched OCI, hit ctrl-A and done...

 The actual initial load times of the sim will be affected mostly by the amount of AI aircraft that are added (total number of liveries), not the models. To put it in perspective, UTL has approx 1070 liveries using 96 models whereas the so far 203 airlines that I have added using AIG's OCI uses nearly 2100 different liveries over 179 different aircraft types using 217 models (varied engine types etc). 

 Load times have of course increased some, it's just a small price to pay when you consider the increase in the quality of the traffic.

Probably the best way to go. MT6's models are inferior to those used by AIG-OCI, if memory serves me right. Have fun with your new traffic! As others have said Re: UTLive, the rate of new airlines added to AIG-OCI is astounding. There's definitely slow weeks now and again, but last weekend I believe they added some 15 new airlines! And their coverage is very, very good, too. You'll have airlines worldwide with their current releases. That said, I reckon I have some 60-100 additional airlines that I compiled myself, which I keep active. This mostly concerns smaller carriers, especially in Africa. However, as AIG-OCI grows, I'll start to take apart my FLAi installation,a s there are many duplicate liveries currently installed,. which have become unnecessary as part of FLAi.

You'd think that I (or we, all those doing this type of manual organization of AI) are crazy for sinking so much time into this particular part of the sim. But I have to say, not only do I find it incredibly fun, it's immensely satisfying to open the sim and see all the activity buzzing around. I keep my AI airline slider at 100%, and flying in and out of large airports like LAX is incredibly exciting. Believe it or not, but even with these amounts of AI, there still is plenty of parking space. The AI is not actually clogging up the airports.
