  1. Hi. This is the addon.xml file I have created which I have placed in C:\ users\roost\Documents\Prpar3D v5 Add-ons . The route for my utLive install is, C:\Program Files\Flight1 Software\ utLive. So, my question is, have I edited the xml file correctly because I still don't see anything in sim yet. Thank you once again. Malcolm <?xml version="1.0"?> <SimBase.Document id="add-on" version="4,0" Type="AddOnXml"> <Addon.Name>Ultimate Traffic Live</Addon.Name> <Addon.Description>Real, scheduled, commercial ai aircraft traffic, for support please visit www.flight1.com</Addon.Description> <Addon.Component> <Category>EXE</Category> <Path>C:\Users\roost\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\Ultimate Traffic Live\utl_client.exe</Path> </Addon.Component> <Addon.Component> <Category>SimObjects</Category> <Path>C:\Users\roost\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\Ultimate Traffic Live\utLive Aircraft</Path> </Addon.Component> </SimBase.Document>
  2. Thank you for your reply cooperwarner8 but I'm afraid I don't understand what your saying. Where do I find the addon.xml file and what directory is it linked to, where should I install utLive in the first place. I'm sorry but I did say I'm not very techi and I just need things explained very, very simply and step by step. Thanks again. Malcolm
  3. Hi Folks. I had utLive working in P3D v5 hf1, then I decided to completely clean my drives and do a new install of P3D from scratch. So I have no old P3D V4.5 on my drives any more to work with. I have tried all the install instructions found in another thread but I cannot get it to work, ( no traffic showing at all). I'm getting on a bit and not much of a techi, so could someone kindly show me the way forward in the simplest of terms please. By the way, I do know that V5 compatibility is not official or supported right now. Thank you in advance for your kindness/help. Best regards. Malcolm
  4. Well I've gone and done it guy's. While following Ray's clear instructions above, I accidently deleted all things AIG! What a bloody dopey thing to do. So now I have no choice but to start downloading/installing all over again. Well that's tomorrow gone. Thanks for all the support guy's especially you Ray, you tried your best for me. Best regards.
  5. Hi Chris I do check for updates pretty much every time I open AIG. Well you've set me quite a job there Ray! I will give it a go and report back. Thanks to all for your support.
  6. No I cheat! With the QW 787 it's easy, with the others I drag the aircraft across the world map to top of decent and then adjust the fuel! I know, I know, the purist flyers out there probably want to lynch me for this 😄. I just don't have the time available otherwise.
  7. Ray, following your instructions above, that did it! I can now move around the world. Problem is of coarse, I have no AI populating the airports anymore. What do you think is the best way forward? The problem clearly lies within AIG, however, I'm reluctant to delete and re-download all those files. The last time it took me a hole day non stop, and that was before lockdown and no where near as many folks on line! I just don't know where to begin to look to solve the problem within my current file. Thanks for sticking with me Ray.
  8. So this is a little weird Ray. I have AIG downloaded and it runs of coarse, however, I have no entry for it in the scenery cfg! Any further thoughts? Malcolm
  9. Hi Ray, thanks for your input and congat's on your position as a Mod, however I had in fact already tried that yesterday. No joy I'm afraid. Regards from Surrey to Cheshire! Malcolm
  10. There seems to be no manual elevation correction facility available now in the download. I wonder if it's built to be automatic or something. Best regards. Malcolm sorry nick you just got in there before me!🙂👍
  11. Thanks for your replies gentlemen. Harry, I have my default setup as my opening screen so am unable to try another start point I'm afraid. Chris, I do have AIG installed so I did what you suggested and closed it down and rebooted P3d without it. Still no joy though, it's still sticking at 77%. Thanks again Gent's any more thoughts? Malcolm
  12. Hi All. So by default my start up airport is KSEA in P3D V5 hf1. No matter what I try, I cannot go to any other airport in the world, not by "go to airport" or by making a flight plan. When I try to do this the loading always locks up at 77%. I have left it for up to 45 minutes to load, but it stays stuck. For this reason I can't go anywhere other than departing from KSEA or circuits. Any thoughts and help would be much appreciated. Thanks and best regards. Malcolm Hancock
  13. Ok so trying to get my dopey head around Simbrief just now. It's actually getting the plans into the FMC's I'm struggling with. As I said before, I'm not very techi. Malcolm.
  14. Gentlemen, I am so very grateful for you input/support it's one of the many things I love about our hobby. I'm currently evaluating my freeware/payware options. Nyxx old chap, this made me smile as you certainly have a point 👍😁 and at the end of it all, if the other stuff is too complicated for me, then I shall get the quill out! Malcolm
  15. Thanks jaytee73 but my real problem is the blank kneeboard which I use to enter those waypoints into the fmc. I have nothing to work with. Best regards. Malcolm
