Hi Boeing, which My Traffic version are you using? Also, at which times of the day does it happen or are there no KLMs at all? Do you maybe use an addon scenery with its own airport layout?

Cheers and kind regards

Thanks, boeing, I'll have a look. St Maarten without KLM is like a plane without wings.

We've concentrated a lot on other things lately. You might have noted that the flightplans improved significantly in many European and Asian areas. The Caribbean remains to be done. We'll certainly open a wish list thread in due course, if you like, please compile a couple of issues/wishes and report back then. We'll implement whatever we can.

Cheers and kind regards

This is a good example of the problems we have to solve.

I checked through the data I have available. The total number of IFR flights into TNCM currently is about 30-40 per day, half of them GA.

This means, that there is a departure every half hour or every hour, and it is not unlikely the airport has only one or two GA aircraft standing there, nothing bigger - that is real life. The 3 or 4 big aircraft from Europe per day are spectacular over the beach - but not in FS.

If I would publish a MyTraffic X with no action within one hour, 5 big irons per day and a dozen commuter, I would immediately be confronted with claims "MyTraffic X is not working at TNCM" - the users do expect action around them within 3 minutes - even the 10 minutes the preflight phase takes to service the FSX aircraft was a reason for much bashing.

So, a compromise has to be taken, to get the airport from the 30 real life flights to the 90 which let the airport be something like busy, with a departure every 15 minutes. In the versions up to 5.1, this was achieved by adding flights created by the random algorithms, and since the North was mostly booked, this gave aircraft more from the South and East. The algorithms for 5.1a have been refined, so that instead additional schedules from an earlier season are added if they are not identical to the actual ones. So in version 5.1a TNCM is dominated by LIAT, EGF, and other US carriers, the only latin America flight is a Volaris from Mexico ( that I verified to be real ) and two TAM from Brazil ( where I found one to be real ). So I recommend you update to version 5.1a, your problem is already solved.

I believe the fsx stock airport has only 5 commercial airline parking spots, 2x36m, 1x18m and 2x23m, so I cheated and modified the airport a bit to add a couple more gate parkings for 15m and 18m spots in line with the 5.1a schedule. Since then I see double the planes at the airport. With my ifr at 40% there might be 4 to 5 commercial at the airport during the busy times of the day.

To prove it's really happening, here's a picture of TNCM in MTX v.5.1a.

KLM also services Willemstad on a daily base AFAIK.

Kind regards

The modified afcad with a couple of pics is shown here. I'm also including the xml/bgl. I used fsxplanner 26b to modify the parking as well as one taxiway to runway 9. DISCLAIMER - I haven't tested the airport yet! And I haven't had time to see it at night either. Something to do tonight I guess.

@ Kagazi, attachments should be zipped and attached, thanks. Hope you're doing OK. :-)

@ Boeing, you can get the latest version here:

http://secure.simmarket.com/product_infts_id=2072

Simmarket MTX customers have to pay 5 Euros to go from 5.0 to 5.1(a). Discounts should be applied automatically, if they don't please let us know.

Case you have the Aerosoft DVD, easiest and cheapest in the long run would be to get the crossgrade for 14 Euros:

Please let us know if you have further questions.

Cheers and kind regards

Thanks Jaap, doing better now that I have time to fly again :-)

I'm really enjoying the improvements made to 5.1a. Burkhard has out done himself again. I can really see the difference in schedules and the updated planes/paints - I love the new tail lights:!: KIAD (my home base) schedules much improved. I only needed to do slight modification to make the afcad realistic. Hats off to all those who contributed to this effort.

As you can see from the picture above, I've added a single AFR daily from Paris to St. Martin. I've also only kept one 36m Heavy parking since according to departure schedule, KLM and AFR schedules not overlap.

In general, the Caribbean airports can use some real help and I can't wait for you guys to sweep through with your changes. If you haven't already done so, we'll need to add Sun Caribbean to the mix of planes between Islands and TJSJ. Three other airports I modified recently were TNCA, TNCB and TNCC. If I recall, TNCB hardly had any parking spots and none greater than 14m:!: TNCA was a near ghost town and lacked adequate parking as well. I haven't revisited them since 5.1a but I'm curious to see the change due to the new planes and schedules.

Regards...K

Hi again Boeing, the sales price will be converted to $. All you need is a credit card or PayPal. Further options are here:

http://secure.simmarket.com/paymentoptions.php

I would recommend the online version, DVD/CD versions are outdated in no time and AIM, more expensive in the long run. AI is very dynamic. This is the support forum for the online version.

Cheers and kind regards

Hi Boeing, please tell us which version you have and we'll tell you the differences and options. In your MyTraffic folder, you'll find a little txt file called MTX_version... etc.

The safest way to determine the version is in the file manual\index_X.htm.

The cross update will be replaced by a direct update to 5.1a in a few days, I got the first build of it tonight, will test it today, most likely have to make another build, send one to Jaap for testing tomorrow, he will find something more to change, so you see this is near, but do not ask for a day or an hour, I will post when it is with Simmarket.

Jaap wanted to know if it is Version 5.0a or 5.0b, but that should not matter either. I just ask for your patience until the cross update has been upgraded to the 5.1a version, ohterwise you have to go to 5.1 first, and go to the 5.1a status in a second step.

Since 5.0, almost 90% of all files have been redone, I found to my surprise yesterday that the update from 5.0 to 5.1a has about 90% of the size of the total 5.1a version.

Eliminated the double taxiway signs that were compiled in the previous file. I tested the airport and seems to work fine. Lights looked ok at night. Came across a little friend parked in the dark.
