Getting a bit more traffic in v126.96.36.199

Posting this basically for interest only purely because I was curious to see if a previous workaround I had tried made any significant difference to the rather scant amount of traffic in TG v188.8.131.52.
The end result is an increase in compiled filesize of Traffic_Global_Airlines.bgl from the default 10.6Mb to 20.7Mb.
[the 'before' screenshots are using my FSX-SE installed airports, resulting in a compiled size of 12.6Mb, so not quite representative of TG default traffic]
This really quick and easy workaround was achieved by modifying FSXSE_airports.dat in C:\Users\ username \Documents\TrafficGlobal\compiler\airportData,
by recording a simple macro in Notepad++ to add all the GATE parking from KORD to all the airports (which inflates the file to around 149Mb!)
Having only visited a few airports in the sim, I don't know for sure that it has made any significant difference, but I thought I'd share it here in case anyone was interested in a simple way to fill the virtual skies a bit more.
[Just make certain you make a backup of the original FSXSE_airports.dat first!]
I'll wait for the next update, which may eliminate the disadvantage.
"Glad" to hear it's not just me with low volume of AI. Set to 100% in sim. Only see around 4 mobile units and maybe 12 statics at main hubs. Less at smaller airfields. Would have expected much more at max setting.
Yes, low traffic is the most common problem. Many European airports have around 1/4 of the flights and airlines created from the main database.
anyway to get tui planes visable yet
