    Not Recognizing AI Traffic

    Thanks to both of you. This is perfect and it'll work for what I am looking for. One additional question: With this configuration, will there be other WT3 generated aircraft in addition to the 19 mentioned that P2ATC will not see? I assume yes...

    Not Recognizing AI Traffic

    Coming back to XP and Pilot2ATC after about a year. Just purchased WT3 and I'm still a bit confused about how these work together (or indeed if they work together). I have seen the "workaround" where we add World Traffic AI planes to the XP AI on the settings page as described in the sticky at the top of the page. I was wondering if that just allows the XP AI to use those low-resolution models, or does it somehow "link" the WT3 generated flights to be seen in Pilot2ATC? Obviously I have no idea how this works. I don't really understand how WT3 generates flights, and how this is different from the way XP usually generates traffic. Really, I'm just looking for better airport traffic that is compatible with Pilot2ATC, without the big performance hit of using the normal AI planes. Thanks.

    Reconnecting during flight

    Thanks again. Great program!
  4. I realized that EFASS was outdated,thanks!

    Flight Plan Export

    You are not doing anything wrong. Any imported or exported flight plans have arrival/destination airports and any intermediate waypoints and airways, but do not have SID or STAR information. You need to choose the SID and STAR once the plan is loaded. For the GTN 750, this is quite easy. Just click on the arrival or destination airport.
  6. I often don't have time for a full flight, so occasionally I will pause the X-plane for many hours. I place P2ATC on "pause" but often when I restart, the comm frequency is not recognized. For example, I restarted a flight from Nice to Salzburg. I used the COM frequency selector to search for the closest ATC, which comes up with the Marseilles control center at 119.75. I load that as the active frequency but it does not show Marseilles control center underneath, as if the frequency is not recognized. I also had it happen that I will try to load a frequency, and a close but not exact frequency comes up. For example, I type in 119.75, but 119.752 will show up instead. No matter how many times I type in 119.75, only 119.752 shows in the Comm box. Sometimes it "locks up" and I can't switch frequencies between active and standby. I disconnect and reconnect the sim, and that doesn't help. The typed in frequencies do show up correctly in my FF 757 or Aerobask 550, depending on what I am flying. Chuck
  7. Thank you! I created a flight plan in EFASS with airways and it imported perfectly fine with P2ATC. I am getting a few unrecognized waypoints when I load it into my FMC. Using the most recent navigraph data...
  8. Thanks Dave. Is this a feature you will think of adding? I guess I can add airways after the fact? I just starting flying heavy jets a few months ago, so forgive this basic question. In the real world, do pilots have an idea about their STAR approach ahead of time (when filing their flight plan) or are they just assigned them before descent? Is it more "realistic" to file a flight plan with airport to airport only, then get assigned my SID and STAR later? Thanks
  9. Just to clarify- does the Auto plan feature create flight plans with airways (like EFASS does) or do you need to add airways/intersections between the given SID and STAR? Every auto plan I created had direct between the SID and STAR. Just making sure I am not missing a feature. Thanks. Great program!
  10. Does increasing the number of AI aircraft in X-plane have any significant impact on Pilot2ATC? Does the program take into account AI schedules when it generates ATC commands? I'm asking because increasing AI aircraft in X-plane has a killer effect on frame rates, but I do feel that sometimes I'm the only one interacting with the ATC....
  11. I have seen people just use shortcuts. I am not familiar with simlinks...what is the advantage?
  12. I recently purchased a 500 G SSD hard drive just for X-plane. Not surprisingly, it is almost full. I am planning to purchase a huge disc drive to move X-plane files. Question: I am certainly going to move my ortho files to this hard drive and place shortcuts in the custom scenery folder. I assume the main X-plane folder (through steam) will stay on the SSD. Anything else that I should move vs. keep on the hard drive? Obviously the ortho files are the big issue. External vs. internal? Any specific recommendations? External would be easier...

    GPS waypoint map

    For example, I created ortho for most of the Alps, so I have been flying through the mountains and practicing in limited visibility. As I am flying along, I see a number of waypoints that are obviously used for flying through the valleys and avoiding elevations. However, I don't see them on any of the high or low VFR charts I am looking at. I would love to have access to those for pre-planning purposes. SkyVector doesn't have much info on European airports. I would be happy to pay for a service if needed. Is there a flight planning tool that would utilize the Navdata in the GTN430 folder and display them on a map?

    Preview photos?

    Did you use ortho4xp? Which map service did you use?

    Preview photos?

    I gave up on Alaska and I created tiles for most of the Pacific northwest. ZL17 with W2XP and ortho overlay looks fantastic. Have a great screenshot flying past Mt Rainier that I'll try to post later. I hear that Europe is pretty solid- anyone do "bush" flying around the Alps?
