Help! I don't see Airborne AI Traffic in FSC (solved)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys any help one can provide maybe helpful. I can see AI on the ground in FSC and FSX and I can see them taxi and takeoff in both. However, when the aircraft is airborne I loose them in FSC but I can still see them in FSX (both visually and when flying advanced 3 party aircraft like PMDG 777 and VRS F-18E via radar).

 

Does anyone else have this issue?

Hi X_Man,

 

FSUIPC/Wide FS:            4.939n/6.999b

 

Before we consider other causes,

I recommend upgrading to the latest versions of Pete Dowsons FSUPIC4 and WideFS.

 

FSUIPC version 4.945a

WideFS version 6.999m

 

Regards,

Volker

Hi,

The FSC does not affect the appearance.

There are no separate settings for traffic on ground or airborne.
(see current screenshot)
What has been changed in the meantime on the computer?

Mine use to look like that until a reinstall of FSX. What setting in FSX would affect such a thing? maybe a simconnect setting ? I have checked FSUIPC but I am not sure about traffic tools settings.

If the AI traffic has been switched on, there are no further settings.

FSX and SP1/SP2 installed as administrator?

FSUIPC4 installed as administrator?

Volker thank you! You are a genius! I was comparing your screen shot to mine and I noticed we have different FSUIPC TCAS id string settings. Mine is set to Flight, so I see airline names but once they airborne, I guess FSX doesn't associate that with anything so they disappear. When I change the setting to Type+, I see aircraft by manufacture, Aircraft Type, ORG - DEST, ALT, HDG and KT. I now see planes in the air. I guess it's a relationship with FSX, FSUIPC and UT2 air labels.

 

Thank you for your help - have a great vacation!

This is very interesting! FSC ATC ID info for AI aircraft is separated for both ground and air traffic. So when TCAS ID string in FSUIPC is set to "Flight", that data is provided from FSX for ground traffic. However, once the aircraft is airborne - that information no longer exists, even though I see in the Traffic Tools. I will research more! I have always wanted to see "Airline Name" on AI in FSC -  I wonder does anyone see airline info in airborne aircraft?
