Question about Traffic Global Locations



  • Greetings, I don't know where else to ask. I have BGL files from traffic Global in both these locations:

    H:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Scenery\World\scenery
    H:\Jocelyn\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\TrafficGlobal\scenery

    From what I understand of P3D addon system, I just need to have it in the second locations, and it does work if I remove the BGL files from the first folder, but I seem to have less traffic at the same traffic density. So just to be clear, can I delete the files in the first locations? They don't seem to be touched when I recompile the traffic...

    Thank you



  • The Scenery\world\Scenery TG will disable the default sim AI but will not place a active BGL in this folder, TG injects traffic through the Traffic Global entry in the main scenery folder, if you load P3Dv5 then options scenery you should see two entry folders Traffic Global and Traffic Global Airport Facilities which should be placed below your Addons Scenery entry but above your base scenery folders.
    So yes you can delete the first but i recommend you disable this in the Scenery\World\Scenery, you do this by editing by adding .OFF on the end this will disable a BGL file in your sim and will not be loaded.
    I don`t recommend deleting anything in your sim first as recovery can be painful if it goes wrong.

    Hi,
    You shouldn't have any extra traffic files from Traffic Global in Prepar3D v5\Scenery\World\scenery. All that should happen there is the default traffic file should be renamed so that it isn't loaded by the sim.
    The traffic files that the sim uses are those in your Documents folder.
