I am also using 3.2.19 and just loaded Traffic_MIL_Canada_CC-130HT_435.bgl up. No errors.
I ran validation against it and again it was clean.

Now as I have my own naming standards I also have to de-compile, amend the txt files and then re-compile. When i did that I got no errors at no time.

The interesting thing here is that it means Leg 61 from line 3. Well line 3 only has 11 legs in the one I loaded up.

Now I was using the FS9 pack. So I downloaded the FSX pack. What I found was a 5 week schedule when I loaded it.
When I validated the plans it should no errors. However I selected line 3 anyway and it only has 30 legs in it.

However, line 2 had 61 legs.
The issue was that leg 61 went past the end of week and landed at 01:13 on day 0 of week 0.
Leg 1 took off at 01:33 on day 0 of week 0, a difference of 20 mins.
Now the only reason that Neither John nor I got errors is because we must have 'ETD Preset/Standard Sit-Time (min.)' option set to 20 mis or less (mine is set to 20). Yours must be greater than 20.

Now if you want to leave you option to the amount that you have set that is fine. Then the solution for you is to bring leg 61 forward by a day and re-compile.

I still don't know why the error should line 3 when it was line 2 that had it but hey the cause and a fix have been identified.

I've just validated the FS9 and FSX/P3Dv4 versions of the file in V3.2.19 too and both were fine.

Steve, I just checked and my ETD Preset/Standard Sit-Time is set to 20 minutes.

Also I am still not to familiar with multi week plans yet. Is leg 61 this part CYWG,4/6/20:21,5/0/01:13,090,F,0339,CYRB
If it is what do I need to change?

Yes that is the one.
Double click on the leg so that the values are at the top and making sure that the week is still set to 4 just select the previous day to the one already selected.
Save, Update and compile.

As to why you get the error and I don't with the same parm, I don't know. Unless you have the minimum time set for arr/dep set to greater than 20. I would recommend 3.

Ok this is very weird! When I double click on the plan it only shows 60 legs. the last leg AIFP shows is CYXE,4/4/20:30,4/4/22:01,090,F,0339,CYWG it does not show the Leg 61 with the error in it.

Also I checked my minimum time set for arr/dep setting and it is at 5.

Don't forget that the leg number should be checked against the numbers in the last column not the first.
The first column automatically puts them in day/time order. The last column is the order that they appear in the text file.

Also make sure that you have the time zone set to UTC not local as this can alter things.

I checked both columns, Leg 61 is not there. I have to go in about 30 minutes so I will not be able to work on this again until I get home tonight, but I asked about this error in the AIG forums.

PS: My time zone is set to UTC time.

I think I got it fixed. For Leg 61 I put CYWG,4/5/20:21,4/6/01:13,090,F,0339,CYRB and there was no more errors. So I think that is correct now.

PS: After I changed it AIFP now shows 8weeks instead of 5weeks. And when I double click on the plan Leg 61 does show up now.

If it is set to an 8 week flight plan then set it back to 5 and re-compile.

The plan itself on the txt file it says 5Weeks, but on AIFP it says 8Weeks.

Are you sure you are looking at the same file?

John is correct about all those plans being 5 week plans. I just downloaded the P3D pack and loaded the traffic into AIFP.

Now it might be that when you amended the plan to fix the error that you were getting that the plan altered from 5week to 8week. So simply load it again and select the affected plan(s) and set it/them to 5week again and re-compile.

It really isn't difficult.

The Italy C-130 packages, uploaded this morning, feature the current 17 active C-130 aircraft operated by The Italian Air Force (Aeronautica Militare). The aircraft, based at Galileo Galilei Airport (LIRP) San Giusto, Pisa, comprises 3 base model types: C-130J, C-130J-30 and KC-130J.

The aircraft will work with the current MAIW scenery of LIRP (Pisa) in FS9 and with the addition of the included flatten/exclude file, in FSX and P3Dv4 too. Replacement traffic files are also included for the 17 aircraft for the 3 sim versions.

As always please give Greg a chance to make the files available.

I’ve gathered the information I need on the EC-130H compass Call, which will be the final model of this project. The back end aerial arrangement is fine, but the complication is the enlarged and additionally ducted main gear sponsons either side of the fuselage. That will take a bit of work and a remap of the fuselage texture.

I couldn't wait on the Matrix update and just got the RCAF ones in, retiring more long serving HTAI models. Now you release the Italian Hercs! Can't wait to see the Compass Call, need to get one to taxi into a T-barrier in Afghanistan.

Now that is a package that needed replacing, the very old USN/USMC Herks package.

Hi all, looking at the screenshots in the readme files and the published ones, I noticed that the inside of the cockpit is darker than what I have in my FS9. This is for all the packages released up to now.
Any idea? Only me?

Thanks, Giorgio.
