    P3Dv4 - AI ERJ’s ?

    Yeah it would be nice if there was a statute of limitations on the release of freeware. If you abandon your project, after 3 years or so, someone is then allowed to "enhance/fix/build on" said project. Raven AI are working on a CRJ200 so that will be taken care of but the ERJs I don't know. By the time someone gets a model out, those aircraft will be phased out anyway so probably not worth the time or effort. Same could probably be said for DC-10.

    WOAI traffic in P3D v4

    They've all been done. You just have to do it yourself. Its not a one click install. For that you have to pay $$ for UTL live or some other payware. Built my own custom AI using AIG flightplans, updated FSX and v4 models found on AIG and FAIB etc, installed them all using AIFP. MAIW installs itself via the Matrix tool. Only aircraft i'm missing is the ERJ 135/145 and CRJ 200 which if you know what you are doing with ModelConverterX you can fix yourself for v4. Unfortunately AIG can't do it since they don't have permission from AI Malcontent. Takes time but all free. Models are better than UTL. Nice lighting using Simbols AI Lights Reborn. updated flightplans and repaints.

    The Cost of flying in P3D - relative worth

    As noted above its very much what you make of it. Devs have to produce something that is viable for someone just wanting a cheap flight simulator. You know basic textures plenty of free aircraft for messing around. But they leave it open for others to build upon that. DCS is very much the same. Caucus map and several aircraft are all free. plenty for some people. But if you want highly detailed aircraft or map then that comes with a price tag. Your paying for devs time and effort. And in the case of PMDG and some other devs you are paying for licenses with the aircraft manufacturer, support, etc. And while people cry about paying for support, this forum is full of evidence that there is literally thousands of pc rig configurations they have to contend with. Not to mention playing nice with other addons or software.

    Henrik Nielsen AI ships

    Also if the addon.xml method doesn't work, you can always just junction link them. i have been doing this for years. I did this for AI Aircraft as well, although recently moved those to xml method. Such a great package. I think Henrik said you can see almost all the boats on 10%. Never really noticed an FPS hit. Certainly not quite like road traffic. AI Carriers and Javier's Ike/Nimitz package works in P3D also if you want a carrier tooling around outside ports like Norfolk, Pearl, SD, etc.

    AI Controller 2.0 (Gate-to-Gate Control) Open Beta Prepar3D

    Yeah for P3D v4 I went back to version 1.4B. Version 2.0 had some real issues with taxiways and what i call "zoomers" across the runways. But it followed SIDS and STARS very well. Version 1.4B AI follow the taxiways perfectly but then you only get the SIDS and STARS for the areas provided and not every airport. So I know version 1.4B works in v4. And i'm sure v2.0 works but like i said with issues. Simbol is working on a program to manage AI but may be a while for release.

    Another ORBX sale soon?

    I think Bill just willed a sale into existence. Wow that is crazy!

    POSCON online flying

    Yeah this BoG screenshot of a chat they had is disconcerting. Sounds like they have nothing and only replied in that letter to restore confidence. Not sure who i trust in this weird soap opera going on. Seems they are reacting now but should have done something long before this was an issue.

    REX Worldwide ARPTS HD TO BE released

    There was no problem installing on a separate drive previously. Mine was. Don't know if they changed installers.

    AI traffic separation

    You should do like the other devs "You'll see it when its done!" lol. But if you really want to torture yourself then you could do like a Twitch thing or Youtube.

    AI traffic separation

    There is no program that manages separation. AI Smooth was probably the best program but that hasn't been usable since FSX. Hopefully Simbol nails it. This is the one area thats kind of been neglected in FS. If you can get the AI to operate normally i.e. follow taxipaths, leave the gates at correct timing (not a bunch at once), takeoff/landing animations, etc. AI Controller was nice in version 2.0 because the AI followed the SIDS STARS for every airport you loaded in. Also adjusts taxi speed, turn radius. Traffic Optimizer still works pretty good with limiting aircraft in the reality bubble but tends to inject aircraft in major areas like NYC, London etc in large loads that make the CPU stutter. Which i've learned is really bad for newer aircraft like Aerosoft Airbus Pro which needs FPS constant above 18. So that 5 sec dip in FPS causes issues galore. FSUIPC traffic limiter works ok as well but i had issues with it eliminating too many aircraft at certain airports. SuperTraffic Board you can eliminate aircraft at nearby airports and reduce percentage shown. Anyway you can see a nice program with all these features in one would be worth the $$$$. Simbol, take my money! lol.

    AI traffic separation

    I had this issue with AI controller 2.0. Had to roll back to 1.4b. You lose the STARs and SIDs for all the airports that are not provided but they follow the taxiways perfectly.

    Locking Frame Rate

    As someone with a 144hz monitor, I'm curious about this as well. Currently run Unlimited but with Vsync and TB on. Usually good performance but there are times stuttering will occur. Do i turn vsync and TB off?

    help understanding fps set rate or unlimited

    Yeah setups are. I have a 144hz monitor and its hard to find answers on this topic since most users have a 60hz tuned down to 30hz. no external limiter and unlimited in sim with vsync and TB on i get smooth performance but get the occasional stuttering. external limiter at 30 fps and unlimited in sim with vsync and TB off, I get not as smooth performance but seems less stuttering. Hard to find the sweet spot but not sure its setup correctly.

    DCS has built in View controls. No need for CP.
