What do I need to create virtual traffic?

Postby Tyler012 » Sat Mar 06, 2010 9:52 am

Self-explanatory. I live in a smaller town with an airport that serves primarily regional airline traffic, American Eagle, Continental Express, Delta Connection, and Southwest.  I love flying out of my home airport (who doesn't?) but I dislike only having AI Southwest traffic there.
    So I want to create a few flight plans for American Eagle, etc. So it feels a little more real.  I've already got the textures and the models, they were made for non-AI flight, I just want to know how to create some flight plans for them, or if there's anything that I need to do to make them AI-flyable. Guidance?

Great, but are their versions of TTools and AFCAD made for FSX?

AI traffic files:

You can use TTools created traffic files in FSX with one gottcha.. if FSX sees FS9 files it will use them and ignore FSX format traffic files, meaning you will loose the default aircraft and 'ships and ferries' traffic (until you remove or convert the FS9 files).

At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.
