  1. It may still be in Beta, but I'm very impressed with that this tool from the Alpha India Group already delivers. At last I feel like I've got my World of AI back as I had in FS2004, but this time for Prepar3D with Prepar3D Models, often 2048x2048 repaints and all free of charge. Using the One Click Installer, it's largely been a pain free process to download and install any airline. I think this will really go places and it deserves to, so I will add logo and configuration content for all the airlines supported by OCI. That said, it's no small task as the coverage is very wide indeed so it will remain a work in progress for quite a while. Watch this space! Simon
  2. If that's how the AI is behaving, I guess all STB is doing is to faithfully report that fact. The earliest AI arrivals do seem to have problems sometimes, for example suicidal decent rates to make the runway then they are going to fast to land. Simon
  3. About STB Betas: Betas offer “leading edge” changes and are the fastest way to get new functions and bug fixes. Compared to “official updates” they may have received slightly less testing with an ongoing effort to bring testing up to "Official Update" standards. The risks are small but should be understood, and I'm here to help with any beta issues. It’s highly valuabled to us when people try betas, and report their experiences as they wish. Here's the next beta update for STB for Prepar3D V4, the first of 2019 with the following changes since the last official update: Summary of Changes in V4.2.2019.08800 Added name and location of the simulator Traffic BGL file supplying each flight to the flight details dialogue. Added content support for Alpha India Group (AIG) “One Click Installer”, covering all airlines suitable for the OCI up to March 2019. Update Make Runways utilities to V4.8.7.1. Fixed bug which ignored flight plans described in a schedule BGL file where the file extension (BGL) is in upper case. Fixed bug that caused mismatches between materialized flights and predicted flights where the aircraft title > 32 characters. We now support titles up to 64 characters. Fixed various problems with reporting blank, null or whitespace-based paths occurring in simulator configuration files, to the content error reporting system. Fixed exception generated when a keyword=value pair occurring in a simulator configuration file contains a value which itself contains one or more equals signs. Fix problem where STB operated aircraft would not go through departure workflow. Fix incorrectly calculated next departure flight schedule time in flight details dialogue. Deprecation of the majority of legacy UT2 code. You can download the STB Client update from here: http://bit.ly/2WqI7fe And the STB Data Server combined update and installer from here (only required on the Prepar3D computer when running STB Client on a separate computer: http://bit.ly/2HLpdfT Simon
  4. Thanks! In the coming days (or perhaps weeks) there will be another update. Probably no changes to the code, but just to keep up with the avalanche of content from AIG just lately. Simon

    Not sure its a problem with P3dv4.5

    Strange one Bob! When the box is yellow, it means we've not received the "simulation started" so we think P3D is in a menu or dialogue or is paused rather than flying. How do you rate P3D V4.5? Simon
  6. Sorry to say from my side I've no idea what's changed in the scenery library. The simulator has some idea things have changed of course, but it's not externalised to third parties. Simon
  7. Sorry to say the link does not provide a picture. Please update. Thanks Simon
  8. Thanks for the feedback, no matter how much you exercise it, the news is always welcome. Simon
  9. Already done and released as a beta update, see the latest on this very forum! OK granted more airlines have come since then, but I won't be doing daily updates 🙂 Sorry to say I'm not in either. Never used either I'm afraid, just don't have the time for that. On the rare occasions I needed something custom, I used the TrafficDatabaseBuilder.exe in the SDK The AI implementation is all about compromise to make it work the best, since it's had little real attention since FS2002/4. There's a real opportunity here, its one thing P3D currently does better than XPlane (IMHO, and there's a great deal to like about both by the way). Just not enough bit's in the BGL to store time in the flight plan, so accuracy goes particularly with the longer repeat periods. Simon
  10. *** Updated 11/3/2019, updated for Traffic Global Early Access V1.1.1.0 I've updated STB with the latest content for TrafficGlobal Early Access V1.1.1.0 which covers a number of new airlines. STB will continue to deliver content through it's update mechanism from time to time as Traffic Global continues to evolve, but there may be a considerable delay before such updates are available. In the meantime importing the new TrafficGlobal content independently is very simple, please see the PDF for details. How to configure STB for Just Flight Traffic Global.pdf PS. I am indebted to my friend Dave Mould whom provided very generous amounts of time and effort to help with the Traffic Global content.
  11. AIG is stellar, I'm glad I took the trouble to download the OCI and it's all so effortless (time consuming yes, but it was like that with WOAI to) and there's just nothing hard about it. The content is coming along. I've about 30 airlines left requiring IATA codes (down from around 200 at the start), plus a bunch more logos. This may come in two waves, as some logos we can make do with for the time being until they all get upgraded. PS. A lot better now - thanks for asking. Personally the last 4 months have been a difficult journey, as where the last 4 years before that (professionally speaking). Simon
  12. Just checked, I think the latest version is there: What are you seeing? When I first uploaded this, I noted some latency before the files showed up on the public side of the web page, and I also had to clean my browser cache. Thanks Simon
  13. No problem, glad we fixed it. Thanks Simon
  14. Hello Uwe In my development system, the user aircraft time was calculated correctly. I've added some additional debug information in case you still have problems, and I will produce a new beta just as soon as I can. At the present time, that's some days away due to other changes, but I'll get done as quickly as I can. Once it's available, I'd like you to install it. If the problem is still there, I'll need a verbose trace to examine it. Thanks Simon
  15. Thank you - that actually makes a lot of sense as we made many changes to STB's understanding of dates and times to support multi-week scehdules in AI flight plans from AIG. It's likely there's a problem with that implementation for user aircraft. Like I say, I'll investigate. Simon
  16. OK, so I think you are saying: "The user aircraft departure date/time is incorrect when I try to set it a certain number of minutes from "now" in the simulator. If that's the case, I'll look into it. Thanks Simon
  17. Hi I think I've seen this problem before and fixed it in a beta release. See here for details of the beta: Thanks Simon
  18. Hi, Thanks for sharing this one. It may be the case that UTLive disables the Prepar3D traffic BGL file during installation as other AI packages do, but of course it will reappear after a Prepar3D re-installation. One of the changes I'm working on right now is the ability to click a flight on the board, and STB will tell you which BGL file it thinks that flight came from. I expect that to be another useful tool for tracking down "undesirable flights". Thanks Simon

    Compile Airport error in P3Dv4.4

    Hi Many thanks for the file. If we find ourselves in this situation again please zip the file before uploading it here as the forum likes to expand .txt files inline which makes it rather hard to read. In any case, I think the issue is here: " Parsing FLW.Simulator.Objects.SimContentConfigItem entry:[Package.29], title:, folder:, enabled:True, supplier:C:\Users\Jimmy\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D V4\add-ons.cfg." It looks like you have an blank entry in your add-ons.cfg file found in Prepar3D Application Data. Can you remove this item, or set enabled to false? Having a blank title and folder is causing us a problem. I will fix it in STB, but it will be a while before the next update due to other changes in progress at this time. Thanks Simon
  20. Thank you for advising me of this issue. I have updated the packages with the content from the latest Traffic Global Early Access - v1.1.1.0 which is just a number of new airlines. The changes can take a while to go live on the website, something I don't control, but should be available soon. Simon
  21. And it's already heped me find a "bug" in STB. Some aircraft titles are longer than 32 characters, but I was only getting up to 32 from the simulator so there would be duplication in the flight list. Fixed now, I support up to 64 characters. Simon

    Help setting up

    I'm sorry to say I've no idea what you are talking about here. I can only offer support for Super Traffic Board. Simon

    Compile Airport error in P3Dv4.4

    Thank you, please repeat the verbose trace with the beta version installed.

    Compile Airport error in P3Dv4.4

    Hi, As you are at base level, the problem is not detailed in the trace. Please install the beta and try again. If it works, great, if it does not work, the beta is the starting point for a fix. Please see: My web page is out of date, and needs some work. Please use the above. Thanks Simon
