  1. Not sure I can add anything to "depict GA flights plans", apart from the logo is there something else missing or undesirable? For the logo, no good off the shelf answer so let me turn it around to you: If you feel the generated logos containing the registration are insufficient, how would you like it to work? Simon

    AIG flight plans

    For me to even consider doing so, they would need to provide and maintain an API. Given how challenging that was with other vendors, it's hard to see happening here I'm sorry to say.

    AIG flight plans

    From the RealTraffic website: "Depending on which simulator you are flying, it then injects this traffic so you can fly with it, or foll". And that's the problem, because the traffic is added externally rather than a traditional scenery file, the simulator only has very limited information available, which is why you see what you see on STB. Please see http://www.supertrafficboard.com/ExternalSchedulingEngineSupport.html Simon

    AIG flight plans

    This situation is something new. All the information you see in the screen is provided by the simulator to STB. If STB shows "????", that's the best information the simulator has to give. The real question here is where are those flights coming from, are they really AIG or something else. What you are seeing is typical of externally scheduled AI packages such as UTLive, but I've not come across a BGL based package having this effect before. Please set up a verbose trace as per appendix C of the user guide, reproduce the problem as you see it, close STB, and send me the trace file please. Thanks Simon

    AIG flight plans

    Again, that's something else. I can't guess the problem, please provide a screenshot. Simon

    AIG flight plans

    STB reads all flight plans known to the simulator when you do "Compile Airport Database". I don't understand what you mean by "no to or from data", that's something else. Screenshot please? Simon

    Clip ai radius?

    Hello Mark I'm not aware of any way to do this, reduce the area in which the simulator creates AI. Thanks Simon

    STB & Prepar3d 4.4 & UTLIVE

    Good time to visit, who knows what will happen after March but it's not going to be good if carries on like this. The views you refer to are part of what we cann "Enhanced View AI", and this is something that LM implemented very well in SimConnect for Prepar3D. The observer based views (from runway, parking, etc) and very good also, and "flyby" is just outstanding! Simon

    Following AI main window - new window

    Not at present. The reason it's the main view is I tended to find opening a second window containing AI aircraft to be too damaging towards FPS. That said I can look into it at some point this year, although there could be some technical problems to managing this. Would you want to have a new window open each time you View AI, so you could end up with many windows, or just one separate "AI window" which changes with each AI View? Simon
  10. I've updated the airlines configuration and logo collection for the recently released Traffic Global Early Access V1.1.0.9 Please see here for everything you need: Simon

    STB & Prepar3d 4.4 & UTLIVE

    Yes, working as designed. There's no API in UTLive like there was in UT2, so some information is missing and some things don't work. See here for details: http://www.supertrafficboard.com/ExternalSchedulingEngineSupport.html This is a long standing bug in the simulator, even present in FSX all that time ago. Instead of "View AI", try one of the other views such as one of the following from the context menu: These have a different code path and I've not known them to fail. Simon
  12. To keep pace with the market and the needs of the majority of users, the time has come to retire development for the older products, including: Prepar3D V1; Prepar3D V2; Prepar3D V3; Prepar3D V4.0 through V4.3; Microsoft Flight Simulator X (in all forms including Steam Edition); If one of these is your simulator, you can continue to enjoy and use STB as it stands today and it will continue to be available on the older platforms, however I won't be making any more changes to the software, addressing defects and support will be limited to know issues. That said, I may still publish content updates (for example airline logos) as the various AI packages available continue to evolve. Prepar3D V4.4 is our fully supported platform for STB, and I expect development of bug fixes and new features to contiue here. Many thanks Simon
  13. Always glad of positive feedback (and negative too I guess!)
  14. Considering the trouble these simulators have managing aircraft on final approach and taxi, one can only imagine the same chaos for boats! Love the video, the only boat to get any respect is the Carrier!

    Flight number "0710" repeated

    ok, no problem, if it shows up again please consider the problem determination suggestions from a few days ago.
  16. flying-w

    Flight number "0710" repeated

    How are you determining the "actual flight numbers show up in the sim and parked at the gate"? All I see on your screenshot is real flights.
  17. flying-w

    Flight number "0710" repeated

    Ok, I looked at this one again. To me the "0710" flights are all real AI in the simulator, so the 0710 is coming from the simulator or a scheduling. If you want to double check you can either: 1) Install Traffic Toolbox Explorer which also reports flight numbers, but check once the flight has pushed back as the flight numbers aren't necessarily valid unti then. or 2) Set up a verbose trace, reproduce the problem, send me the trace file. What I need you to do is to connect once at least two of the problem flights are pushed back or later. When you see that, close STB and send the the file. Simon
  18. This is essentially the same issue as in: Let's end the disussion here as it is duplicated, and carry on in the other topic.

    Have you contacted me via email on this issue also? If so, I have replied there. Thanks Simon

    Airport Names not showing up

    This is the latest version I can find, which should be the same as yours given your STB level:
  21. flying-w

    Flight number "0710" repeated

    I remember there was a bug in this area which caused certain flights to be duplicated (when the AI flight appeared in the simulator, it wasn't reconciled correctly with the associated predicted flight). What version of STB do you have? Thanks Simon
  22. flying-w

    Airport Names not showing up

    Once your scenery is in the library, or via the Prepar3D add-ons definitions, make sure it is enabled then: 1) Run MakeRunways 2) Compile Airport Database STB gets the info from MakeRunways, please make sure you are up to date with STB to ensure you get the current version of MakeRunways as it has changed somewhat with Prepar3D V4. Thanks Simon
  23. Who knows if it ever was resolved, not sure I heard back from the original customer. 1) I don't understand this stateement. What are the old and new programs? What do you see in STB that has lead you to this observation? 2) Your exact error message please? The camera.cfg is in the FSX application data folder. If STB is not looking in the "right" place for this, it's possible there's still problems with your registry. 3) What version of STB is involved? Thanks Simon

    You'll need to give me a bit more to go on here: 1) What is the old version? Exact information please, including the 4 digit software level from the "Help" section. 2) What is your new version? 3) What is you simulator? 4) What is the AI package involved? Thanks Simon
  25. Yes, I think the problem in your case is you don't have 7zip installed. If Windows does not recognise the file extension, I'll need to recreate it as a .zip file. I'll do that sometime this week. Simon
