    New Router and cannot now connect to Data Server

    Thanks Simon. I suspect it was down to the fact the router had been running less than 24 hours so maybe the previous IP addresses were still trying to be used. All very confusing (and frustrating) but hopefully sorted now.

    New Router and cannot now connect to Data Server

    Inexplicably having rebooted both computers a couple of hours later and changed to using the computer name in simconnect,cfg and xml files it now works. Baffling! 😄

    New Router and cannot now connect to Data Server

    Simon, Sorry to have to raise this again but having just changed my router from BT HH5 to a TP-Link one I’m having problems getting STB for P3D v3.4 to communicate with the server program. I’ve tried both Computer name and IP Address in both SimConnect.cfg and SimConnect.xml But I just keep getting the “unable to connect” message. The port number of 500 is present in both those files. It worked fine up to when the router was changed. I know the IP addresses have changed but even having changed them it still refuses to work. Is a log generated anywhere that allows me to see the exact error message?
  4. It's related to v2 of KPHX and a combo of Ai and animated jetways. FB are going to convert jetways to SODE. Several others have reported various problems at KPHX involving Ai.
  5. I and a few other people are having problems with P3D crashing at Flightbeam's KPHX v2 airport. We all have MyTrafficPro. If Ai % is set to 2 the scenery loads fine and I can reposition the aircraft at multiple gates. Pete Dowson's Traffic Look shows there to be just 4 Ai loaded. If I increase Ai to 3% it will crash P3D (P3D has stopped responding). This is consistent and reproducible. If Ai is set to 0% I can reposition multiple times without a problem. Everything points to MyTraffic having a bad Ai texture file. Is it possible to generate a timetable of Ai at KPHX around 12:00 Local to identify a possible culprit?

    Delete Old Airlines & Aircraft

    MyTrafficPro is a very good Addon for FSX/P3D But I do find it very difficult to modify aspects of it such as what is being requested here. Monarch has gone into receivership and none of their aircraft are flying. It shouldn’t be that difficult for those aircraft and scheduled flights to be removed from the database. Monarch won’t be alone of course. Over time others will disappear and new airlines will come into the picture. Some detailed guidance on the required steps to make these changes should be part of an FAQ.

    Ai refresh problems on STB

    Hi Simon, I've found that even if I reduce the time on RemoveAISleepers with P3D running the multiple Departed nn:nn entries can be removed by selecting Disconnect and Reconnect on the Client.

    Ai refresh problems on STB

    Hi Simon, I've reordered the loading of programs which results in not having a load of departed aircraft showing up on STB. I run RemoveAISleepers from SimStarterNG and mark it only to run when P3D is ready. From FSUIPC I run the DataServer and again, only when P3D is ready. This gives me a 'clean' STB schedule.

    Ai refresh problems on STB

    Hi Simon, Don't worry. It's something I can live with until I eventually make the move to v4. I thought it might be of interest to you. When I do make the move I'll be in touch.

    Ai refresh problems on STB

    Hi Simon, I've been busy today testing a new version of RemoveAiSleepers by Oliver Binder which removes all Ai that have a departure time more than 90mins ahead of the current sim time. STB then updates its schedule showing those aircraft as "Departed nn:nn" where nn:nn is the time the Ai was deleted. This is a freeware program available for all versions of FSX/P3D which you may be interested in. Scroll down to the bottom of that page. https://lorby-si.weebly.com/downloads.html It's annoying that P3D / MyTraffic Pro inject these aircraft so many hours before their departure time. It means there are fewer gates at your arrival airport and too many effectively static aircraft at your departure one. By removing the Ai that won't depart for at least 90 mins I'm able to increase my Ai Traffic % and as a consequence see far more ground movements as a result as well as having more free gates at my destination. I'm not attaching any blame to STB. It's just the window into what's happening in FSX / P3D.

    Hi Simon, Thanks for your reply. I'm busy on a test flight today but will do as you ask tomorrow.

    SuperTrafficBoard V3.4.1.2 Update for Prepar3D-V3

    The link to the Data Server is returning 404 - not found.

    Ai refresh problems on STB

    I'm running P3D v3.4 and STB (versions unknown but they are the latest after a check) on a server / client setup. I'm using a utility that checks the departure time for Ai aircraft and if that time is more than 90 mins ahead it deletes them. Well, they don't get deleted immediately but they are removed from the gate they occupy and placed within the 40nm 'bubble' in P3D. Several minutes later they are deleted. I'm doing this because when I arrive at airports like LPPT all the terminal gates are occupied by Ai and many won't be departing for several hours. But the problem is STB is not updating its display to reflect these changes. I even closed the client and server applications and started them again a minute later. The same Ai aircraft were shown on STB but they didn't actually occupy the gate STB showed them at. Can you offer any reason why this is happening please? Shouldn't STB refresh its data many times a minute? What is the default refresh time? The server runs on a i7 4770K and the client on an i5 so plenty of processing power.
  14. I've just noticed that P3D v3.4 as well as LittleNavMap are showing a strange Registration Code for Ai aircraft. For example, P3D shows 767-300 N?358AN. The only program that shows them correctly is SuperTrafficBoard. Is this a long-standing issue that I've just stumbled across or do I have some type of corruption of my Ai package? I've looked in the relevant aircraft.cfg file but cannot find any reference to registration. How do they get assigned a code and why can’t P3D etc. show a non-ASCII character?

    Ai Traffic shows ? in reg name

    Sorry, posted in FAQ forum. Can you move it please? I've just noticed that P3D v3.4 as well as LittleNavMap are showing a strange Registration Code for Ai aircraft. For example, P3D shows 767-300 N?358AN. The only program that shows them correctly is SuperTrafficBoard. Is this a long-standing issue that I've just stumbled across or do I have some type of corruption of my Ai package? I've looked in the relevant aircraft.cfg file but cannto find any reference to registration. How do they get assigned a code?
