Cargo traffic- FEDEX and UPS for Traffic Global and P3Dv5



  • @Derek
    Except the number of errors in the the main airport Traffic Global compiler show a lot of plans do not show in the sim, and bad made plans with incorrect code only three letter and FALE no longer recognised 1/3rd of the plans will not compile without errors,
    And i do not rely on the TG default scenery i have a custom made scenery folder for default airports for V5 parking is available but TG will not fill it.
    The default compile will return only about 11,000kb BGL and that`s with 100 addon airports.

    It's okay that the number of flight plans has 'dropped' from six to one.

    I use FSX SE. Problem, however, is that many airlines and types of aircraft are missing at airports in version 1.1.1.8. There are only a certain number of airlines and aircraft types in the current version.

    In my opinion, the main flight database is built very well, only a few airlines are missing. Because if the traffic were identical to the flight database, it would be perfect.

    My question is only whether the main flight database will be approximately identical to the traffic at airports after the following updates.

    It can't be identical - there are too many variables (parking spaces at non-default airports, location you are flying from etc).



  • @Derek
    Does this mean that there will be no more airlines at the airports in the next updates, which would at least help increase traffic?
    Because many airports are filled with a minimum number of aircraft.

    The database is what it is. It was generated on a particular day (in 2019 IIRC) and Traffic Global has aircraft and liveries that will attach themselves to the flights.

    So, if there is a flight from Quinboltoknam to Cambletown Int'l, using an Airbus A371-200 from TrumpBiden Airlines and the plane and livery are included then you will see the flight. If not, although the flight is in the database it won't happen as there is no plane or livery to fly it. You can choose the substitutes option but that will only provide an approximate plane or livery.

    We have added more aircraft and liveries since the program was released but no immediate plans to add more. The selection is, we think, excellent but we can't cover every possible plane or carrier.



  • @Derek
    Thanks for the information.
    I just wanted to say, for example, at the airport in Frankfurt but also other large airports, planes land a few times an hour. Rich recently mentioned that he has a solution to this disadvantage.
    Thanks





  • It is to be believed that further updates will help to generate more flights from the current database.

    Actually, this is what he wrote:

    Future traffic levels are probably dependant on how wedded people are to basing aircraft movements on real world schedules. I'm happy to add an option that would artificially increase the amount of traffic in the sim, but generating extra flight plans via some rules and some degree of randomness instead of relying on the real database would inevitably require a compromise on accuracy.

    Many flights from the flight database are set up correctly, but many large airlines do not display any flights.
    (For example, TUI and many other airlines do not appear at airports, missing a380).

    I don't need to add extra flights, overall it's about the flight database generating flights that are correctly recorded (plane and livery are included in the program).
