FlyTampa Athens.No Ai Traffic

Recommended Posts

Need a bit of help with this as i've exhausted anything i can think of.

I use Traffic Global and have quite a few payware addon airports.Only two won't show any AI traffic one of which is Flytampas Athens.

It did have traffic until i updated TrafficGlobal and now the airport is empty .what files would i have to switch OFF to enable traffic to show.I know that duplicate afcads can cause the problem,just can't find anything obvious.please don't suggest any other AI program .i'm very happy with TG except for this issue at LGAV and FSDG heraklion.

 thanks for any help

I use MT6 and have no issue with Ai Traffic showing in FT's LGAV. Do not have TG, so cannot add any further.

sometimes an Afcad or BGL file can stop AI from showing when there is a conflict between the two.strange that it was working before i updated to TG latest version.don't want to go back because of the fixes.just not sure where to look to see if there is a conflicting afcad or BGL file.would i delete the prepar3d 4 afcad or one in flytampas scenery folder ?? if i can find one.

Have you tried the FT Forum, in case somebody there has an answer?

Just go to TG Airport Facilities Scenery folder and scroll down to LGAV bgl and turn it off or delete it, all your addons and ORBX should be above this folder in the P3Dv4 scenery, I in fact have all my addon cad files pasted into TG scenery folder.

 That's pretty absurd to have to do anything like that though. Better off disabling the entire TG Airport Facilities Scenery folder and not worry about it.

If you remove the TG Airport Facilities Scenery folder then the traffic will run on the default stock AFCADs for all the airports that are not addons, this will reduce the traffic in the sim TG will not spawn traffic it`s loaded on start up depending on the number of parking spots at the airports that have real world traffic schedules.

Steve, the fact that everything was fine until you did a TG update suggests the problem lies with that software and not with the AFCAD.

The most obvious thing that springs to mind is they've changed the flights into and out of LGAV. Does TG have a departure / arrival board that you can use to check what flights should be happening?

The other possibility is they have changed the aircraft radius size and no aircraft can fit into the gate size. Unlikely but possible.

Finally, if TG supplies AFCADs for each airport then that is suspect. Rename it and see if that makes any difference. I know the FlyTampa AFCAD is okay because I see plenty of aircraft there with UltimateTraffic Live.

I think you need to raise a ticket with TG people and also ask if others with FlyTampa have the same problem.

 The TG Airport Facilities Scenery are really just mild updates to the stock airports files as it is. They do add more parking, but they are still often uncoded and use odd sizing. LGAV for instance, the default airport included 66 parking spots and the TG version has 80 but they really aren't very well set up. Just because there's more doesn't necessarily make it better. Add on to the fact that users usually don't know that they should disable specific TG airport files for airports that they already have scenery for to eliminate both scenery and parking conflicts (layering doesn't fix make those conflicts go away).
