Recommended Posts

Thanks Jim for the vhhx_fp_jv.zipVery clear setup!Only one question left. In the Flightplans_VHHX_JET.txt i read:AC#8316,HL7413,19%,WEEK,IFR,1/01:00,@1/02:14,320,F,0331,ZBAA,1/04:10,@1/05:24,330,F,0332,RKSI...etcJim can you please explain the use of the "@" symbol here; or is that just a random figure?RegardsBert

BertThe "@" is used to force the AI Plane into the visual zone when working with TTools as the FP compiler. We learned many years ago that if the "@" is not present and the Aircraft.txt file is using TAS rather then IAS many many AI Planes will not fly to the airport but will just popup at the stands.There are other reasons for it such as a back timing of 15 minutes that is added to the FS9/FSX back time rule. It also gives a more realistic gate time arrival rather then an arrival into the visual zone of VHHX and VHHH.If you look at many of the more popular AI Flightplans here on AVSIM and all the FP's that WOAI use they all have the "@" present and a aircraft.txt speed that resembles IAS rather then true speed. On any given day around 04:00 GMT/12:00 Local time you should see at 100 percent slider 30-40 AI Planes at the Stands. If the "@" is removed and the TAS is used then as planes leave the GATE others will just popup in their place.Nothing has changed in FSX. When we copied FS2002 FP's to FS9 it became mantadory that the "@" was present so airports would fill properly. When we copy FS9 FP's to FSX this must also be adhered to.
