Problem with AI Traffic Mover

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,I'm using AI Traffic Mover and it looks really good. I like the user interface, but after compiling the flight plan, there are only small planes like Cessnas appearing. I do not know wheter my aircraft configuration file is wrong, but I am using that one delivered with the program. What can I do???

This is one thing I'd like Thomas to change (haven't emailed him yet though...). I would like him to have AITM ask (Yes/No) if it should remove flights or not. Currently, AITM removes all flights that don't correspond to the flight level cfg file, and removes all flights with problems like overlapping arrival/departure times. It also removes flights using missing aircraft from your aircraft folder.Thus, before compiling you should:1. Back up all relevant txt files in the AITM folder before compiling with AITM - makes it easier to get back things AITM removes.Go to Analyze/Flights Times and Analyze/Flight Levels and see if you have problems there. Check to make sure your flight level cfg file is the way you like it, then use Fix Flight Levels and Fix Flight Times.2. Look at Flightplan Aircraft Editor and see if you have any missing aircraft (in red). Substitute existing aircraft for the missing ones.3. Now try to compile; hopefully most of your flights will be there. I managed to get my removed files down into the hundreds; don't know what's wrong with those...4. The removed flights will be in a file called something like RemovedFlights.txt. I add these back to my Flightplans.txt file and recompile using the TTools DOS interface (i.e. double click on the compiler exe file).Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

If I have problem flights, they are still there when I open AITM at a future date. Now, I don't use the compiling feature in AITM itself. I save the flightplan then copy it to the appropriate FS directory and compile from there. Maybe that's the difference?Matt Zagoren

Yes, it only removes flights from the plan when you actually compile from within the program. I have also compiled outside AITM when I didn't want this behavior - just using it for editing, moving, and shuffling.Take care,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Hi,just two little notes:- Compiling within AITM is the same thing as compiling from outside- removed flights will always be saved in a backup file, they are never lostBut I'll add a new option, so that the shuffler can be configured not to mark unassigned flights to be removed while saving.CheersThomas

I think I've solved the problem: After restarting AITM, everything works fine. Perhaps it should be mentioned in the help that you have to restart the program in order to take the changes made in the aircraft and airline files place.
