Delete Unwanted Aircraft

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

 

I wonder if there is an easy way to delete unwanted aircraft.  I don't have full control over the editor.  It's so annoying that I have Atlas Air at the gates at JFK and cargo planes at the gates at other airports.

Thanks.

Simple way is: Edit the file sim.cfg resp. aircraft.cfg of the plane, and change the title= entry for the plane, than it will not be used.

Thanks for your reply Burkhard,

However,  I am no expert and don't know how to do what you have suggested.  I wonder if you would kindly break your advice down into more simplistic terms and a step-by-step guide how to do this.

Regards

James

To as example disable the Atlas Air B744F, do the following:

Browse to the folder MyTraffic\aircraft\B744F and edit the file sim.cfg using notepad as example.

You will find in it the section for Atlas Air 744F:


[fltsim.14]
title=B744F_MyPaint14
sim=My744
model=FSXF-CF6
texture=My14
atc_id=N-805MC
atc_airline=GIANT
atc_heavy=1
atc_parking_types=CARGO,RAMP
ATC_PARKING_CODES=CRGO
ui_manufacturer=MT Boeing
ui_type=747-400
ui_variation=Atlas Air Cargo
description=MyTraffic AI model by B.Renk
 

MyTraffic orders FSX to display an aircaft using the title string. Modify the title:

title=B744F_XXX_MyPaint14

Now the aircraft will not be found an will not display.

Thanks Burkhard,

 

However, when I open in notepad it is not like what you show it should be like, it looks like a jumble of letters across the page and makes no sense whatsoever.

 

Can I just delete the entire B744FMX file folder?

 

Regards.

Good evening Burkhard,

 

Still stuggling away to delete unwanted aircraft, but can't do it.

 

I have attached a screenshot of what I see when I open in notepad.

 

Your help would be appreciated.

 

Regards.

Hello Burkhard,

 

I made the changes advised.  However, subsequently, I could not access either KJFK or KEWR.  Flight Simulator crashed with a message "fatal error has occurred".  When I delete the amendment I do not get a crash and I can access the airports.

 

So, still can't resolve the problem and get rid of the cargo planes overtaking the gates at KJFK which is so annoying.  I wish we had an option of not installing cargo planes.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Regards.

Interesting, could you add the file that you modified? Removal of cargo planes is simple, just move the folder out of the MyTraffic\aircraft folder, the cargo planes have different folders than the passenger planes.
