Missing files on MAIW Florida Orions

Post by yambot » 06 Dec 2018, 16:37

Hi everyone,

I downloaded the MAIW Florida Orions package file. It is supposed to contain the AFCADs, Callsigns, and flightplans for the bases AGR, KMCF, KNIP, LPLA. Everything got installed except the flightplans. Can someone please direct me to find the flightplans for this package? Thank you.

OK. Welcome.
Now you say that your version is for FSX. So firstly the package is for FS9 and can't be directly installed and work.
At least one file needs to be converted and that is the traffic file. An FS9 traffic file in FSX will mean that no traffic shows up in that area.

So lets take the simple thing first.
Did you manually install the package or let the installer do it for you?

The traffic file is called 'Traffic_MAIW_Florida Orions.bgl' is it anywhere on your PC?

I did run the installer. I searched through my pc and did not find this traffic file. I am using AI Flight Planner 3.2.15 which allows me to convert traffic files from FS9 to FSX, no problem. I can even use the .txt files for aircraft, flightplans, and airports, and compile the traffic file, but I did not get those either.

OK well the reason you didn't get it is probably due to the fact that the installer is for FS9 only.

What you have to do is to do a manual install to a temp location, preferably to folder with a small name on the root of a disk (to avoid problems with long path names) and then manually copy it over and convert it.

Once you install to a temp location and search you should find the file with no problem.
