    Dear friends, I'm sorry to tell you that I'm suffering from cardiac arrhythmias since some months, and up to now have no diagnosis of the reasons nor any therapy but to keep calm and avoid any load. I hoped this to get fixed since long...So please understand that I cannot do support as I did the last 20 years - I hope to get better in a while and than to get back here.
  2. Please post all wishes of airlines that you would like to see with one of the next updates here. Please be explicit, tell us a bit about this airline, give us a link to more information, like the Wikipedia page about it, the homepage of the airline, etc, and make one reply per airline.
  3. Please post all wishes of new paints for airlines, which we have already, that you would like to see with one of the next updates here. Please be explicit, a few links to good high resolution photos of the type, and if you find them also a list of the current registrations of this type. If you want to share a paint you made yourself, feel free to share them here too.
  4. Here comes a new check list for you in case MyTraffic does not work as it comes, after you followed the installation instructions. Please follow this list in this case, do not try to use the editor or to compile schedules - all such action cannot solve the problem, but makes identification impossible. If this list does not help, please open a topic in the MyTraffic folder for your question, and supply the information we ask for here. Do not put your individual question into this topic, only very general remarks that might help others.

    Dear friends, thank you for all your good wishes, your patience and your help. The bad news I have for you is that there is no medical improvement yet. The good news for me and you is that I could retire now from my main job - so I hope (do not promise, but hope) to come back here in the sence that I will be able to visit this forum once or twice a week and to start to continue work on MyTraffic. To define a smaller project for the time beeing, and to have enough time to get all the tools working again, I want to concentrate on a simple paint update first - using the existing schedules and airports and just refreshing the liveries. I will ask for that on another topic. Yours Burkhard
  6. Finally the newest Version of MyTraffic for Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D is available. New costumors to MyTraffic will autmatically get version 6.0a as from now. For earlier costumors of MyTraffic 6, an incremental update is available, please see below. What is new compared to version 6 are 46 more types, 13 more all new Airports, new schedules, and a lot of little fixes. MyTraffic Professional 6 continues to be published by Simflight, and will be supported on this forum.
  7. Let us share the experience with FSX - SE and MyTraffic here. It contains no Trafficdatabasebuilder - but you can use the one from FSX SP1, Acceleration or SP2 if you have it. Another bad news, the scenery library tool does not work properly, it adds a section to scenery.cfg, but then complains that this contains no scenery, and indeed the path just was plain nonsense. I had to edit scenery.cfg by hand, but under Windows 8 this is not easy because the user is not allowed to make changes in the programdata folder, even if he is administrator and UAC is switched off. So you have to run the editor as Administrator, then you can do it. Good news is that MyTrafficInteractive works. And yes if you have some skills you can get it to show MyTraffic AI traffic - but if you have these skills why don't you use the real one - in the shops here FSX Gold DVDs are cheaper than the Steam edition, and give you much more. About performance, Frame rate with a fresh installed FSX SE is identical to SP2 with no addons installed - if you compare with an old install that has tons of FS8 code installed it is faster of course.
  8. Some Points in the Installation Guide seem not to have been clear enough, because the same questions got asked repeatedly. So I put here an updated version of the installation guide. MyTraffic 6 Installation Guide.pdf

    No AI Traffic in P3D v.3.4

    In simobjects.cfg, change the Entry.10 line to Entry.12, they have to be in line.

    Wrong communicator

    You should have menus for 1, 2 and 3 yes. Ist there no menu for2/3 or is it grayed out?

    BA777 disappeared when taxiing in. Why?

    FSX deletes the aircraft if in that moment there is no free fitting parking - which can happen, if you dislike this reduce the traffic density slider.
  12. If you are missing an airline somewhere in the world, or an airline that is in MyTraffic has got a new type, or a paint scheme has changed and isn't in MyTraffic 5.4 yet, please propose these now to be included in version 5.4a. Please also remind me of requests you already placed somewhere. I already nodeted the SAA A332 and Egypt Air A321.

    MyTraffic 6.0a crashes FSX

    We are looking into this problem since years, that appears on very few systems. I have compiled a candidate for a fix and will post it here in a few days to test if the current theory is correct.

    Colliding traffic at LPPR, LPMA and LPPD Airports with My Traffic 6.0a

    When we made a wish list for FSX a decade ago one way taxiways were on this list, but the AI Playr had not been changed for this from FS9 to FSX, and P3D did nothing about it either. So there is no general solution to this. On some airports. it may help to close the conflicting taxiways totally, to force usage of others. As I always say, if I would buy a professional ATC system for a single airport, I would not buy it from Microsoft, would not buy an ATC that is the same for all 20000 airports, and I would not buy an ATC that is a tiny part of a game, 20 years old code :)

    Out of the Blue

    Most likely, simobjects.cfg now contains the entry for MyTraffic twice, start to check that.

    simconnect 50 config tool message

    Which other addons do you use, since MyTraffic does not use simconnect at all? It may be that another tool just give the sim 50 seconds to load, and due to the giant amount of aircaft now it takes a bit longer?

    Civilian planes at military parking

    The passenger 747 will only use these parkings if there are not enough heavy gates free for it. So the first solution is to reduce the traffic density. Second then to improve the airport, which 747 is parking wrong at which airport?

    g3d.dll CTD

    We are chasing such a problem since long which appears on some systems, on others not I will release a try of a fix here the next days..
  19. What is the size of the new MyTrafficCommercial.bgl that gets created, compared to the original one?
  20. Burkhard

    Any news on update?

    All the mechanism to create schedules from real world data have to be rewritten, since th data no longer contain important information, and the sources used for the old tools do not compile under Windows 10. Later in this process I will release a test version, please look then if this issue reappears or not. These duplicate flights, are they using the aircraft type, or is one a 738 and the other a 739 as example? Issue is that flight numbers by far a no longer unique, in the US I see more than a dozen flight using the same flight number, even with different equipment, an absolute nightmare to program :(

    Airport Traffic

    When you use addon airports, these are the programs that make AI traffic based on the MyTraffic schedules which just are a wishlist that the airports should handle. If they cannot handle, you will see less or other problems. Basically, you have to look for the correct size and type parkings, for frequencies and for correct size runways.
  22. There was FAAAAAAR much less aircraft traffic by then. Before I stated with flight sim programming, I spent a lot of time as a spotter, and today unbelievable there was not a single departure in FRA between 1 PM and 3 PM as example. The large airlines, compared to today, only had very few aircraft. In 1966, Lufthansa had around 40 Jetsaccording to my Buchair list, KLM 35. MyTraffic tries to model that.

    My Traffic 6 Liveries

    MyTraffic 6.0a was released in 2015. Work on a new version is in progress, but do to many obstacles are slower than I hoped for. That mirrored TUI sign, does this also show when you are near, it could also be a LOD effect. There is an extra topic here on this forum for wishes for new liveries, this is the place to point to such changes.
  24. Burkhard

    Gates Full

    Yes, just remove the traffic density slider -settings above 50% are for spotters, around 25% for pilots.
