Creating AI traffic is FUN - except ships and ferries are gone

Recommended Posts

I'd been using World of AI packages but was frustrated that the Skywest and Midwest Connect flights at my local aiports weren't created by them yet. I stumbled across a tutorial on how to download flight plans and AI planes and use Trafic Tools to create your own AI packages, so I gave it a try. After an hour of work including downloading I had Skywest United Express CRJs flying their proper routes. If you haven't tried this look into it, downloading all the special paint schemes needed then assembling the package and seeing it in the sim is suprisingly very satisfying, especially when you stumble across "Salmon Thirty Salmon" at Seattle or see something else unusual.I understand that to use the .bgl files Traffic Tools creates will result in missing ships and ferries unless you convert the .bgls to FSX format? How do I do this so I can have my ferries and ships and new AI traffic as well?Thanks

I'm not at my home PC now so I can't give you the info on the one that I foundthat is easy to use but it MAY be this one:Plug this into your browser: aifs.pvdveen.net/Download/FP_FS9_FSX.zipAfter spending many, MANY hours struggling to create FSXAI flightplans that would "satisfy" the %^**$&* programcalled TrafficDataBaseBuilder (TDBB) I gave up on thatPOS and reverted to using my FS9 TTools-created BGL's.I, of course, lost my default FSX AI traffic and shippinguntil I found the conversion utility. Now I have all ofmy FS9 AI traffic co-existing with the default FSX trafficand have lots of moving carriers to land on ( aicarriers1.zipin the library here ) as well as the default FSX ship/boat traffic.
