Default Ai Traffic !



  • Hello ,
    I have noticed that in some airports I get Default traffic plus Traffic Global Traffic !
    I am running Prepar3DV4.5.3 !
    I have checked into my Scenery World Scenery folder and I can see : trafficAircraft.bgl.disabled-by-aitraffic-aunz-p3dv4
    I have also Installed ORBX Oceania Traffic !
    Any idea why I can still see default traffic ?

    Thank you ,

    Mike !



  • In the world scenery folder at the bottom edit the AI bgl like this TrafficAircraft.bgl.off by adding .off you switch of the bgl after you click on the blank area of the folder you see a warning just click ok, to confirm this the type column will show OFF File. Default AI will not show now.

    trafficAircraft.bgl

    Just do a quick search for that file anywhere that you might have traffic files (eg: from the top level directory of P3D).
    You'll undoubtedly find another (active) copy somewhere.
    The renamed file you have found has been disabled by Orbx. Installing TG also renames the default traffic, but as TrafficAircraft_.bgl_TGbak and this step often gets missed by the installer.

    Thanks Ray for your reply !
    Unfortunately as I have mentioned in my post , the only Aircraft bgl that I can find in my Scenery World Scenery is the one that it is already disable by ORBX Traffic !
    trafficAircraft.bgl.disabled-by-aitraffic-aunz-p3dv4

    Most probably as Capt Quirk mentioned , there must be another entry somewhere , which I cannot find !

    Hello Capt-Quirk and thanks for your reply !

    Unfortunately I cannot find any TrafficAircraft_.bgl_TGbak !
    I searched in many places , but no luck up to now !
    I am sure that there is one more copy somewhere !!
    I have my TrafficGlobal Installed in my Documents ,
    And another file in my Prepar3DV4 Add-ons which contains : 1) Scenery folder ( Which includes 5 .bgls ) , 2) An add-on.ocbackup And finally 3) an add-on.xml .
    Also in my Program files there is a TrafficGlobal folder , which contains several .dll's

    Thanks again ,
    Mike

    Hi Mikee,
    I can't see too well from your posted screenshots but you appear to have only default traffic (though there might be a non-default plane in the far distance).
    As you can't find TrafficAircraft_.bgl_TGbak then it could be there's a copy of trafficAircraft.bgl in your scenery/world/scenery folder.
    If TG has been uninstalled at some point, it would have reinstated that default traffic file and may have missed renaming it when TG was reinstalled (it does happen😃 ).
    Since there doesn't appear to be any TG traffic in your screenshots, it might be worth checking that:

    1. Traffic_Global_Airlines.bgl is in your scenery/world/scenery folder and,
    2. Simobjects for TG has been added in your P3D.cfg file(s) [sorry, I don't have P3D...In fsx.cfg, TG adds the line SimObjectPaths.n=directory where you installed TG Simobjects\TrafficGlobal\TrafficGlobalFleet]

    If, however, you're only seeing default airline and/or default GA traffic in some areas of the world and not others, then it might just be a scenery that you've installed that contains a .bgl file to add a bit of local traffic using the default aircraft.
    If that's the case, a search through any added scenery folder should find something, possibly with a filename containing the word 'traffic'.
    Any found can easily be disabled by adding .OFF (or anything you like) to the filename's extension.
    Anything that doesn't end in .bgl is ignored by the sim.
    Good Hunting!



  • Thank you very much Capt Quirk for taking the time to reply to me , much appreciated !
    I will go ahead and search some airports in which I have both TG and Default Traffic and see whether or not I can disable any Traffic bgl's .

    Mike
    Ps . Just Fixed Aerosoft's LGSA . There was an Option in their Conf.Tool To Disable Default Traffic !
    I will go ahead and do some more testing !!
