I agree about the models. It was the "lazinesss" IMO of the software designers regarding the fact that the atc side is rubbish. ie multiple versions of same tail number, wrong callsigns, missing callsigns etc. example the easiest callsign easyjet has been given atc id easyjet not easy plus a myriad of others.
Several of the GA models have been the same tail number several times for each model. A lot of the military models have no id let alone the call sign. Plus I don't think the flightplans are that good as there are several ops at Stansted who don't use it. Sorry to sound pernickety but I want this sim to be realistic and this program (for me) doesn't cut it. For someone who wants a "quick" AI fix this is ok. No disrespects to peeps out there using this program. I suppose I could use the models for my flightplans but some of the liveries are really out of date and I would like to use the variations the fleets are using. To sum up, if I am paying, not a small amount, for a programme I would expect it to be of a better standard than this is.
Anyway, back to the issues.
1. I am using UTT flightplans
2. I am using FAIB and djc models amongst others with either fsx, in the case of FAIB, or very recent 2004 textures and models as I read on some forum, rightly or wrongly, that these should be ok with fsx.
3. I am using AIFP2 to compile the flight plans. I use this program to validate, check for missing planes/textures etc before compiling.
4.I have used a couple of the jft models with the UTT plans and same result, no visible planes.
I have purchased Extreme Stansted scenery as that is the nearest airport to me and will suit the type of flying I wish to do (short haul European).
I load it up and lo, I am the only plane in sight. I select ground control for clearance and the I can hear easy, Ryanair etc asking for clearance. So, where are they? I open the view tab, click on aircraft and there is a very long list of tail numbers. I select a tail number and can see the, for example, easyjet fleet.
I go back to my plane and they are not there. If try other views tower, runway etc they cant be seen. Only in "chase" view can I see them.
If I disable my bgls and run the default (Trafficaircraft.bgl) everything is ok. Likewise with the Traffic360 everything is ok, lotsa visible traffic .
Sorry for the epic tome but I hope this is enough info for you.
This is my first attempt at a flight sim so I am prolly doing something, or not, so obvious but would appreciate the help.
