Adding Retro Traffic

Wed Sep 05, 2007 1:32 am

Ok all, I have toiled and tried to add TWA retro traffic using the retro ai group flight plans and adding the plane models by ai ardvark. However, each time i compile my traffic file, i can't see the planes. I am obviously doing something wrong and if someone could give me some help, I would greatly appreciate it. I am getting very frustrated.....

Make sure the plane names in the "aircraft_airlinenamehere.txt" and "title=" field in the aircraft.cfg files are the same.

Check to see if the aircraft you're using with the flight plans have the correct information in the "model=" and "sim=" fields.

Set AI to 100%. I've found that many developers put together flight plans that won't display airplanes unless the traffic is at 100% because they didn't change those parameters in the flight plan creator. Kind of hard to explain if you don't know what I'm talking about, but it happens.

Usually, checking on any of those solves my problems. If you're still not seeing traffic, something else might be up.

Retro AI is pretty cool though, too bad there aren't more retro sceneries out there to make it worth my time to do a full setup again.

I got it! I have successfully added the 1985 TWA schedule to FS2004 and STL now looks like it did in its glory days. I am however having a bit more trouble adding Eastern to the sim.
