Bored? Mess With AI!

Sat Jun 02, 2007 11:08 am

We all need a little diversion every once in a while, and I've found one I quite like - getting back at those stupid AI aircraft that make you go-around all the time!  mischievous 

I like to start with a fast, nimble aircraft, then take a common route and wait for someone to show up.

So here I am in my Mirage, minding my own business over Calais when a Mad Dog comes into sight. I make a hard right dive to catch him at FL283, and as I kick on the afterburners to reel him in, Paris Center tells me what I want to hear:

"Pacifica 2947 TRAFFIC ALERT, six o'clock, less than one mile, FL283, Dassault Mirage."

By now the turbulence is pretty bad, and I'm fighting to maintain course:



That attempt was pretty sucky, but it's much better in calm weather with little or no turbulence - In many cases I've managed to come within inches of the aircraft.

So give it a shot yourself - it's fun!  thumbsup

Awesome Mirage, but terrible attempt to scare the sh*t out of those Maddog pilots lol.

I prefer doing that in F-16's, F-111's or even B-52's when the plane is starting it's takeoff run. I start going at the other end of the runway and try to get as close as I can.

Pretty fun....

Although ATM I'm very busy with other FS stuff to screw around with AI.

Awesome Mirage

 checkmark  It's a fantastic model; available on AVSIM. In the interest of full disclosure though, the engine sound in the video was dubbed over.  Wink

One fun thing to do with AI is to go to a real busy place like ORD or LAX then set the winds to 50-100 MPH... The planes are like 70 degrees off centerline on their approach, it's hilarious!

Gonna do that, Im tired of working with FS AI traffic, the air traffic control just sucks.

I'll have to do that one day- I've never seen that happen.

On a related note, are AI A/C subject to turbulence?

i dont think so, AI traffic isnt affected by the jetstream and theyre not affected by enroute weather to my knowledge.

Hey you know you can download real airlines flying their real routes and times. www.projectai.com Just email me as the ones you need are in the archive as they are starting a new ai project so you would want the old ones for now to get a thorough airspace. It's really good. Plus you can get airport afcads so the planes can use all runways etc.
