AI Traffic file problem

Post by jinx »

I am making an AI Traffic file for LUQA LMML.

Problem is ATC calls all my Ai a/c "AIr Force 2169...etc".
I had an A-3 Skywarrior called "Navy 610" before I changed the plans.
Its nose no. was 610...
For RAF a/c I can use part of their serial number...
Here are some of the current flight plans I have--most are similar:

AC#1,V,20%,4Hr,VFR,12:33:05,09:48:05,210,F,441,LMML,03:33:10,03:48:10,200,F,1310,LMML
AC#9,HUN,20%,1Hr,VFR,09:15:00,00:15:00,290,F,2169,LMML,03:02:13,03:17:13,300,F,9645,LMML
AC#2,SHA,20%,4Hr,VFR,12:33:05,09:48:05,210,F,441,LMML,03:33:10,03:48:10,200,F,1310,LMML
AC#12,BEL,20%,4Hr,VFR,12:00:05,09:48:05,210,F,441,LMML,03:33:10,03:48:10,200,F,1310,LMML
AC#13,B57,20%,1Hr,VFR,09:15:00,00:15:00,290,F,2169,LMML,03:02:13,03:17:13,300,F,9645,LMML



Any help will be appreciated. The plans above cause the problem....

Hi Jinx. Your problem is going to be a two part issue. First the call sign, then the flight number. FS9 gets the call sign from inside the aircraft.cfg file, not the flight plans. You are going to want to look for this entry in the each section of the aircraft.cfg file:

atc_airline=HIRYU

What comes after the "=" will be the call sign if you have the right vcp file. If you plane is calling as "Air Force" that line has most likely been entered as "atc_airline=airforce"

The second problem is inside your flight plan files:

AC#1,V,20%,4Hr,VFR,12:33:05,09:48:05,210,F,441,LMML,03:33:10,03:48:10,200,F,1310,LMML
AC#9,HUN,20%,1Hr,VFR,09:15:00,00:15:00,290,F,2169,LMML,03:02:13,03:17:13,300,F,9645,LMML
AC#2,SHA,20%,4Hr,VFR,12:33:05,09:48:05,210,F,441,LMML,03:33:10,03:48:10,200,F,1310,LMML
AC#12,BEL,20%,4Hr,VFR,12:00:05,09:48:05,210,F,441,LMML,03:33:10,03:48:10,200,F,1310,LMML
AC#13,B57,20%,1Hr,VFR,09:15:00,00:15:00,290,F,2169,LMML,03:02:13,03:17:13,300,F,9645,LMML

The parts I underlined are where it pulls the flight number from for each flight leg segment. So, for example, your aircraft #1 will be flight 441 on the first segement and flight 1310 on the second segment.

If you want AC#1 to call as Navy 610, first check the aircraft.cfg file to make sure the call sign is Navy, then modify the two entries in the flight plan file to have 610 instead of 441 and 1310

Didn't you got some error message while compiling? Normally flight numbers should be done with four numbers, f.i. 0441 instead of 441. According to your FP the plane should arrive before it took off. A pattern flight would rather look like that:
AC#1,V,20%,4Hr,VFR,12:33:05,12:48:05,210,F,0441,LMML,12:50:10,13:05:10,200,F,1310,LMML
