Hi there,

If that's the scenery by Adam Bentley on AVsim, here's mine, which seems to work okay.

Cheers

Hello
There is an AFCAD for CYWG included in the package... Its called MAIW_CYWG_DEFAULT. It has 5 military parking spots for the Herks, all located at the SW location of the base... And with the correct parking codes...

Cheers

Barry

Hi Barry,

I think the guy was looking for one for the add-on scenery, so between the two he should be covered.

Cheers

I did a manual install of this package (because I did not want any of my AFCADs over writen and I don't have edit voicepack yet so I thought there will be errors because of that) and I have a question. What airport is BGLT?

No probs mate, we only include default afcads unless we are also including our own scenery in a package.

Joseph,

Just so you know, not having EVP won't cause any problems with the easy install. The Voicepacks have to be installed manually, so they just go into a "holding folder" under Flight Simulator 9/Military Ai Works--won't hurt anything, though the callsigns really add a lot when you play FS!

Dan
WHAT? People actually FLY in Flight Sim???

I've finally found some time to install the package; looks really good!

Great also to see the Canadian hercs at EBFS Florennes. Did you get special permission from the BAF to land and take-off during weekends though? Florennes normally would be closed for everything except QRA... :wink:

Hey guys the Owls Nest lists a fix package for this that was on AVSIM but is no longer there. Is that fix still needed or has the base package here - http://www.militaryaiworks.com/Released ... oamil3.zip - been updated?

No worries, thanks Greg, getting all my AI back up to speed slowly but figured I'd at least get my Canadian military up to par. :D

I found the old dev thread deep down in our archives. :wink:

There was a timing error in the flightplans and you'll need the fix package together with woamil3.zip.

Edit: see a couple posts below for Ben's fixed flightplans.

Greg I think you need to check your update file. :shock: I downloaded it from Flightsim ran the text files through AIFP2 to install them and ran across a number of errors. All related to not enough time, for example

AC#144,130320,60%,1Hr,IFR,00:20:00,TNG01:00:00,031,F,0320,CYZX,01:05:00,01:20:00,031,F,0320,CYZX

will not work correctly, the time period covered is exactly an hour however you have to remember the actual span of time here that wants to be covered is from 00:00 to 01:20, too long for an hourly repeat pattern, it should be set to 2Hr instead.

Here's the error report:

Flight Plan 13:
Leg 02: One or more sub-24 hr. arrival times were "wrapped" so as to be valid for the specified repeat period.

Flight Plan 13:
Leg 01: Leg duration too long. Flight unable to return within repeat period

Flight Plan 15:
Leg 02: One or more sub-24 hr. arrival times were "wrapped" so as to be valid for the specified repeat period.

Flight Plan 19:
Leg 02: One or more sub-24 hr. arrival times were "wrapped" so as to be valid for the specified repeat period.

Flight Plan 25:
Leg 05: One or more sub-24 hr. arrival times were "wrapped" so as to be valid for the specified repeat period.

Flight Plan 31:
Leg 05: One or more sub-24 hr. arrival times were "wrapped" so as to be valid for the specified repeat period.


Hope that helps! :D
