WEIRD AI'S

Recommended Posts

Has anybody been successful in creating a TRAFFIC.BGL made out of crazy shapes like blimps,godzillas, cars, fish, whale.....all of these exist in FS2004 and some in FSX. I tried to do something limited in FSX, but the files mentioned above, although very playable as aircraft in FSX, do NOT SHOW in a TRAFFIC FILE.I hope somebody was successful and would not mind sharing there expereience.Thanks.AbeP.S. This is for my grandchildren........not for me.(g)

I didn't miss it, but I really have not tried it so I can't say.What I have done is use many many FS9 aircraft models in FSX as AI.Works perfectly. So, you are saying that you found, for example, an FS9 model of Godzilla, as a flyable aircraft? Or as a scenery object?Because, to the limit of my knowledge, you can't directly make a scenery object into AI unless you do some things with the model first.If you are talking a model in FS9 that was AI, then yes, it can be put into FSX as AI. Personally, I use TDBB to this.Tell me what model(s) you are using and maybe I can get a better idea about how to proceed.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian

Hi Rhett,Thanks again for your help with my constellation Traffic.bgl, the connies takeoff and land perfectly well. I made a touch and go traffic file and that works just fine.I tried several files, goodyear, fuji, yankszep, 2004_chicago flyranosaurus....Most of these are flyable in FSX but they do NOT show in the traffic.bgl file.You are giving me hope again, I appreciate that.Abe

Well in the other thread Tom Gibson mentioned that there are some aircraft files that are not capable of being made into AI.Although I have never encountered this, I know Tom knows what he's talking about with AI, although Tom works mostly with FS2004 I think. I've heard that helicopters, for instance, can't be made into AI. Why, I do not know. Maybe these models are the same way.My entire experience with AI is working with airliners, from Cessna Caravans on up to 747's, and I have done that a lot. But I have never messed with blimps, or a flyranosaurus.I think you are using TDBB to make your AI. If so then make 100% sure that the sim= line in the flyranosaurus's aircraft.cfg file EXACTLY matches the flyranosaurus's entry in your_aircraft.csv file that you are loading into TDBB.If they don't match 100% then that aircraft won't appear.But I am sure you knew all of that already. Maybe this will bump your thread up for more visibility, especially about the "some aircraft cannot be made into AI" issue, which I am not sure about.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian
