I must be doing something wrong

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I tried to randomize my flightplan.txt using AITM and compiled it using Tcompiler. The flightplan.txt checks out fine with randomized flight plan numbers, but when I run FS2002 the exact same flights appear at the same time at the same gate. In other words, the randomization didn't affect the which flights showed up in the game. I am using all the PAI official packs and with default gates at the airports so I know that some (50%) aren't showing up because of a lack of gates. Because of this, I know that randomizing the flight plans should have changed at least some of the planes that appear at the gates when the game is loaded.This is the second time I've used Tcompiler manually and the second time that my changes have had no effect on the traffic regardless of what flightplan.txt says. The aircraft are correct and so are the flightplans. Any ideas?

Make sure that your backup traffic.bgl file does NOT end in .bgl, or it will be used instead. Rename it something like traffic.bgl.orig.

Thanks for the advice. I wish I would of thought of that. Good idea, alas it didn't work. I'm going to either get some AFCAD files or hold my breath until PAP launches. I was wondering if you knew of a way to get your airport scenery files to be time dependent. In other words if there was a way that you could set "Time / Season" back to 1959 and have FS2002 run your airports, but then switch back to current airports when you set the year 1970+Just food for thought.

Not currently possible, but it has been suggested to MS...I simulate the feature by settting up my Scenery Library with separate layers for early and modern scenery. I just click "off" one and click "on" the other.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___
