Don has now got AIFP working for FS20, using default AI aircraft. However, the post following his linked below gives a link to a procedure for importing FSX AI into FS20. Looks like we may be getting close to MAIW for FS20!

That seems to be some good news for sure. Where there's a will, there's a way!

This really is a heads up for people with the sim. If they could report back on whether it is accurate or not it would be useful.

It seems that there is a limit of around 50 active AI aircraft and then the game CTD.
Now whether this is online AI, offline AI or a mixture of both I do not have any info on.

Any experiences here would be helpful.

It does appear that for now there is a hard limit to how many live AI flight plan sectors the sim can cope with before a CTD. But of course the SDK for AI is not available as yet, so the nuts and bolts are speculation only. From what's been reported, I suspect that Asobo will be able to get to the bottom of the CTDs fairly easily once they have time to turn their attention to AI, but I wonder how high up their list of priorities that will be? In the meantime, it's astonishing how much progress has been made by third party developers without access to a working SDK!

Thanks for the feedback, Tim.
I agree that progress has been made primarily due to the deep understanding of how things used to work and how it might have been amended rather that anything that that has been done, so far, at the MS end.

I am guessing that AI is quite low down on their priorities as it is meant primarily as a flight simulator rather then the best darned screensaver in the world.

Yeah no rotorcraft in the sim as of yet so guessing that's on the horizon??

Eventually, of course. But Asobo are giving no clues as to when they will be introduced to the sim.

Well I guess the helicopter came several decades after the aeroplane so I suppose we shouldn't be surprised.

What does give me hope is that if they haven't touched the flight dynamics of the helo yet then when they do it could/should be used by AI helos as well.

Not bad for a 15 year old model from an archaic, outdated, antiquated, obsolete flightsim version!

Sorry but I do not remember every expression that was used here to describe FS9 during the last few months.

Awesome repaint Mark - and it is not even cartoonish looking due to the converted model.
