FS2020 AI traffic editor

Recommended Posts

Has anyone any news regarding creating traffic? I haven't found anything on a traffic editor. I am afraid that on Day 1 I won't be able to create AI traffic to follow my plane to an airfield that I choose. I will get frustrated if this is not available on day1.

I don’t know that there is a traffic editor per say but maybe you can adjust the default settings via sliders.

 

From what I’ve read the AI traffic is generated via real-time real world flight plans and routes and will all happen automatically and dynamically via Flightaware software sharing.
 

Not sure about GA at this point although if a GA AC has filed a flight plan it will probably populate the route and traffic as well.

How much of this will be in the release is yet to be seen!

Out of box it's unlikely we will be able to edit ai flight plans. Though It's possible the SDK kit may have something. Otherwise we will have to wait until 3rd party developer releases something. I'm eager to get my hands dirty and start creating my own ai flight plans.

It's great that they are teaming with flightaware to provide live data and traffic. However this won't work for offline mode so there is bound to be custom flight plan data in there.

I can't wait to start creating and editing flight plan data.

Also, live traffic works if and only if you’re flying in real time. 
 

if in your sim it’s noon in London but in reality it’s 3am in London you’ll get very little traffic. 
 

not to mention what happens with aircraft that are at the gate before departure? Will planes just appear right before pushback? 
 

i was never a fan of live ai-traffic for p3d or fsx and certainly hope 2020 will have a similar way of having BGL offline traffic. While imperfect it still beats live.

That is what I hope to get. Maybe in the following weeks after launch an SDK might be released.

Will it feature real world airlines?

Only repaints made by users and 3rd party I gues...

As always on FS launches. Not enough tools available for mods...

I take off in a Cessna 172 following a P-51, with a B-17, B-25, B-29 and a Convair from Pan AM or TWA holding short of the runway because a C-5 Galaxy is on final waiting for a B-2 bomber to clear the runway. That is how I want it. FS9 made it possible.

Yup, offline will be a surprise to see how it will be handled by us, users. I would design a window where you could select aircraft from a list and edit one by one on the fly to set destinations and departure times. Quick AI traffic making...Also something like "City X - City Y" where you choose two TMAs where the sim would generate traffic only between these two locations for you to fly in a 500 nm radius for instance...

Well, there was an Iberia A320 in the launch trailer.
