I've been tinkering with "AFCAD", "Traffic Changer", "TTools", and "SimpleAI" for a couple of weeks now. I'm not having any luck or making any headway. I want to add some military traffic to a few airbases. I would settle for just being able to park a few static aircraft on the hardstands to make it a little more interesting. Is there a program that I can use to add parked aircraft to scenery? Would someone please take this poor fool under their wing and help me out with AI plans?

Where you see the airports Iíve referenced, (KOWD, KHYA, KMVY) replace them with the airports youíve selected in your Airports_xxxx.txt file. Each plan has only one leg to keep things simple.

* AC#1,N1382,80%,4Hr,VFR,12:00,,025,R,0000,KHYA,14:00,,025,R,0000,KOWD

The flight plan below is a simple, one leg plan. Lets break it down.

AC#1 Refers to the A/C of the same # in the Aircraft_xxxx.txt file. N1382 The A/Cís tail #.

80% Indicates that the A/C will appear if the traffic slider in the sim is at 80% or above.

4Hr The repeat time is every 4hrs, which means the AI cycle starts at midnight every day and repeats itself every 4Hrs.

VFR Self explanatory smiley.

12:00,, The DC-3 departs KOWD at 12:00Z. Arrival at KHYA (,,) will be determined automatically by TT when we compile.

14:00,, It departs KHYA at 14:00, and arrives back at KOWD

25 Cruising altitude is 2,500í.

R ATC will use the tail # instead of a flight #.

0000 A flight #, if used, would go here.

KHYA The 1st (and only in this case) destination A/P.

KOWD The first departure, and final destination A/P.

FP's can have many departure airports (legs) but must end at departure airport

this is what I used to try and get a handle on things, I'm sorry that i cant'n remember writer's name, but with this as a guide, I was successful.

I hope he helps me as he helped me,

regards geoff
