TT A/I planes work, but dupicate 'types' of AC only

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm using FS9, along with Ultimate Traffic. I've new to Traffic Tools, but will just 'delve-in' here and see what happens :) Long after building my own single-runway AFCAD airport (located in West Michigan), then RWY-12 for scenery, I found it 'fairly' easy to use TTools and add A/I traffic to my airfield. 'yRoute' util helped me build the A/I plans. After adding A/I flights, Traffic-Tools traffic works fine, except I see one problem; although all A/I aircraft 'flights' work well, almost all AC are duplicates of the same type of aircraft. For instance, I have made A/I flights for FS9's stock Mooney, C-182, Caravan, Beach Baron, Lear, King-Air, etc, found and listed in 'aircraft.txt' after decompiling. After adding A/I flights and finished compiling, my airfield will show 4/5/6 aircrafts at the airfield, yet only 2 A/I aircraft 'types', just the Lear-45, and King-Air. I can't figure out why only 2 types of AC are showing up as A/I aircraft, when my 'Flightplans.txt' file clearly shows new A/I flights with all the different (stock) FS9 type aircraft (as listed above). It seems all types of them should appear, not just the Lear-45 and King-Air Here's a list that shows my A/I add-ons in 'flightplans.txt' (not fine-tuned yet, but they are working)AC#2072,11,50%,8Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:20:59,040,R,0111,KMKG,00:30:00,00:49:59,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2072,22,50%,8Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:20:59,040,R,0111,KMKG,00:30:00,00:49:59,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2070,33,50%,8Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:22:05,040,R,0111,KMKG,00:30:00,00:51:06,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2078,44,50%,6Hr,IFR,02:00:59,02:22:12,040,R,0111,KMKG,06:29:56,06:51:12,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2079,55,50%,6Hr,IFR,02:00:59,02:22:12,040,R,0111,KMKG,06:29:56,06:51:12,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2078,66,50%,6Hr,IFR,02:00:59,02:22:12,040,R,0111,KMKG,06:29:56,06:51:12,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2081,111,50%,2Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:17:52,040,R,0111,KMKG,00:30:00,00:46:53,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2068,222,50%,2Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:22:25,040,R,0222,KGRR,00:30:00,00:51:25,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2068,333,50%,1Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:31:59,090,R,0333,KAZO,01:30:00,01:00:59,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2076,444,50%,2Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:54:45,080,R,0444,KTVC,01:30:00,02:23:46,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2072,555,50%,2Hr,IFR,00:01:00,01:20:50,085,R,0555,KIMT,01:30:00,02:49:49,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2070,777,50%,4Hr,IFR,00:01:00,01:31:16,380,F,0123,MMUN,04:30:00,06:00:16,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2070,888,50%,4Hr,IFR,00:01:00,01:08:23,150,R,0888,KDTW,01:30:00,02:37:23,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2071,999,50%,6Hr,IFR,02:00:59,03:01:53,080,R,0999,KORD,06:29:56,07:30:53,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2062,1111,50%,6Hr,IFR,02:00:59,03:01:06,150,R,1111,KCLE,06:29:56,07:30:05,150,F,0123,KCVLAC#2081,11,50%,1Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:22:53,040,R,0111,KCVL,00:30:00,00:51:53,150,F,0123,KAZOAC#2071,22,50%,1Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:51:16,040,R,0111,KCVL,01:30:00,01:20:16,150,F,0123,KSBNAC#2081,33,50%,1Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:23:07,040,R,0111,KCVL,00:30:00,00:52:07,150,F,0123,KBTLAC#2077,44,50%,2Hr,IFR,01:01:00,01:42:23,040,R,0111,KCVL,02:30:00,03:11:23,150,F,0123,KLANAC#2081,55,50%,2Hr,IFR,01:01:00,01:23:54,040,R,0111,KCVL,02:30:00,02:52:55,150,F,0123,KMOPAC#2081,66,50%,6Hr,IFR,01:01:00,01:25:23,040,R,0111,KCVL,06:29:56,06:54:22,150,F,0123,KMBLAC#2069,111,50%,6Hr,IFR,01:01:00,01:18:45,040,R,0111,KCVL,06:29:56,06:47:43,150,F,0123,KMKGAC#2068,222,50%,2Hr,IFR,01:01:00,01:22:25,040,R,0222,KCVL,02:30:00,02:51:25,150,F,0123,KGRRAC#2071,333,50%,1Hr,IFR,00:01:00,00:38:22,090,R,0333,KCVL,01:30:00,01:07:22,150,F,0123,KAZOAC#2076,444,50%,2Hr,IFR,01:01:00,01:54:45,080,R,0444,KCVL,03:30:00,02:23:46,150,F,0123,KTVCAC#2080,555,50%,2Hr,IFR,01:01:00,02:37:03,085,R,0555,KCVL,03:30:00,03:06:03,150,F,0123,KIMTAC#2081,777,50%,6Hr,IFR,03:01:00,06:07:07,380,F,0123,KCVL,04:30:00,07:36:07,150,F,0123,MMUNAC#2078,888,50%,4Hr,IFR,03:01:00,04:09:31,150,R,0888,KCVL,05:30:00,06:38:32,150,F,0123,KDTWAC#2079,999,50%,6Hr,IFR,01:01:00,02:02:55,080,R,0999,KCVL,06:29:56,07:31:53,150,F,0123,KORDAC#2068,1111,50%,6Hr,IFR,01:01:00,02:18:02,150,R,1111,KCVL,06:29:56,07:47:00,150,F,0123,KCLE________Here are matching aircraft types (stock FS9 stuff), as listed in 'aircraft.txt' file:AC#2068,200,"Beech Baron 58"AC#2069,315,"Beech King Air 350"AC#2070,143,"Cessna 208 Caravan Amphibian Paint2"AC#2071,143,"Cessna 208 Caravan Amphibian"AC#2072,175,"Cessna Grand Caravan"AC#2073,129,"Cessna Skyhawk 172SP Paint2"AC#2074,129,"Cessna Skyhawk 172SP Paint1"AC#2075,129,"Cessna Skyhawk 172SP"AC#2076,156,"Cessna Skylane 182R RG"AC#2077,140,"Cessna Skylane 182S Paint2"AC#2078,140,"Cessna Skylane 182S Paint3"AC#2079,140,"Cessna Skylane 182S"AC#2080,140,"Cessna Skylane 182S Paint1"AC#2081,464,"Learjet 45"AC#2082,195,"Mooney Bravo"AC#2083,125,"Piper Cherokee 180"AC#2084,125,"Piper Cherokee 180 Paint1"AC#2085,125,"Piper Cherokee 180 Paint2" I just can't figure out why only Lear-45's and King-Air's show up, but no other AC types. If you have any ideas, please help. Only other minor problem, all A/I AC seem to land more towards the middle of airstrip, instead of the touchdown areas. I may be a missing AFCAD runway setting, but at least all A/I AC still land, taxi, and park okay. Thanks, Mattp.s. My flightplans.txt file also contains all Ultimate Traffic flights. I'd love to use some of UT's AC# codes (A/I aircrafts) for my airfield (better looking planes), but can't tell what they are, as each flight has no description of the aircraft-type in use. Is there any way to find out what UT 'AC#' codes mean,to find out what aircraft-type it is?p.s.2 Just for my own airfield A/I planes, I am decompiling and compiling using Traffic-Tools only. UT-compiles delete all my A/I flights, and is used only for UT updates.

Hi,One reason you might only be seeing the faster aircraft is the fact that most of your plans take longer than the repeat period - perhaps those faster planes arrive before the next departure is scheduled and the slower ones don't. If not they won't show up at all.If you have a flight from 00:00:00 and returns at 01:27:45, then that has to be a 2hr plan, not 1hr. If left as a 1hr plan it often will not be used at all. Change all your plans so the repeat periods are longer than the actual flight times.Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Thanks for the tip about 'Hr' times. It's neat that a 'compile' automatically figures out a the average length of each flight. I've not edited the 'Hour' numbers yet, but will check each entry and make sure there's enough time allowed to complete each flight. Meanwhile, I got rid of all stock FS9 aircraft flights at my AFCAD airport. I had duplicates of the same, stock FS9 AC.There was some type of conflict with FS9 and Ultimate Traffic. I found a PAI utility, which now creates only Ultimate-Traffic aircraft to my AFCAD airstrip. They look a lot better than stock FS9 planes, and now I have a separate (PIA) traffic-files, much smaller and easier to work with.
