FTX AU AI Traffic for P3D V2

11 Apr 2014

Posted by Graham Eccleston in Release Announcements
I know many of you are anxious to have some AI traffic to accompany you as you explore the P3D V2 world so I thought it appropriate to prepare a traffic package to get you started. Even though all is not yet sorted with AI traffic by Lockheed Martin, It should be noted that despite this, many AI aircraft will still work as they should.

First of all, the good. Native FSX AI aircraft models work fine in P3D V2 but unfortunately, there are very few FSX AI models available at the moment. Aircraft which are FSX models include all the Airbus A32X series, the Embraer E170 and E190 as well as the Boeing 737's, 767's, 787's, and some B747 variants including the B747-800 which I have now added to the traffic pack. All the remaining AI aircraft models are FS9 ones and while most work fine in P3D V2, they do not cast or receive shadows and some have issues with landing and navigation lights.

Now the bad. The HTAI Single Engine Cessnas cause a 'Fatal Error' crash on most systems if the user aircraft gets too close to them. I have attempted to resolve this by recompiling the models to FSX ones but this process has only been partially successful. The modified FSX models work fine and look great, particularly with their shadows working but unfortunately, the spinning prop texture will not load. This results in the propeller spinning very slowly even when the aircraft is at full throttle. To get around this issue I have added a few variations via the Control Panel which will enable the user to decide how he or she would like to use the various AI models available in this package.

The User Guide explains how to determine which setup best suits you, the user.

I am still working with LM to have the AI aircraft issues sorted and I am sure that all will be fine in a future update to the base P3D V2 system. I'm also confident that once this is sorted, this AI Traffic package as released will work fine and not need further updating.

Before you install this AI Traffic package you should be aware that it assumes you have a clean P3D V2 system with no earlier versions of the FTX AU AI Traffic pack installed either directly or via a migration tool . If you do, you will need to manually remove it as there is no cleanup script included in this FTX AU AI Traffic package.

I also wish to advise that with the release of this AI traffic package, I will be 'retiring' from any further development work for Orbx. I'm now in my 70th year on this Earth and have just completed my 6th year with Orbx so it is now time for me to sit back and enjoy this hobby I love so much. Thank you to all who have downloaded my work in addition to those projects where I have had a bit part, I hope you enjoyed using these products as much as I enjoyed producing them and being a member of this very talented and creative development team . This will therefore be my final AI Traffic package.

Orbx FTXG Lights Configurator

08 Apr 2014

Posted by Ed Correia in Release Announcements

Hi all, 

 

The FTX Global Lights Config Tool is ready for downloading. This tool allows you to modify the size & colours of the FTX Global Lights. This woks as well for the FTX Regions which has had its lighting system updated to the Global style 3D lights.

 

Please note that the installer gives you the choice of which sim to install into, but the actual config tool runs independently from where it is installed. Basically, if you are running more than one sim, you only need to have the one install of this tool and it will work for all your installed sims.

FTX YCUN Cunderdin V1.5 for P3D V2

06 Apr 2014

Posted by Graham Eccleston in Release Announcements
And yet another of our FTX airport updates for Prepar3D V2. There is essentially nothing new in the way of content in this package but for this release, all files have been recompiled to P3D V2 standard using the P3D V2 SDK utilities and should run and look better than the FSX version.

While we have taken all steps to modify this airport to take advantage of all the new features of the new P3D V2 platform, some things were just not doable. I speak here of the burnt in shadows which are on the underlying photoreal base in some areas. Apart from that, you should be able to see how the mood changes as the shadows move across all areas of the scenery placed in these airports

You should also note that this airport is designed to run with the FTX Australia SP4 P3D V2 version as well as the V2 version of the Orbx Libraries. It will no longer be necessary to install the Orbx Libraries last provided you have the most recent version on your system but it never hurts to install them again if you are unsure.

It is very important to note that the installation routine for this airport assumes you have a clean install of P3D V2 with no FTX or P3D V1 versions of this airport either directly installed or linked across on your P3D V2 system. THERE IS A DIFFERENT FILE STRUCTURE FOR THIS VERSION TO THE FSX ONE AND THERE IS NO CLEANUP ROUTINE INCLUDED IN THIS INSTALL.

I would also like to point out that there are a some issues that effect these airports which we are hoping will be resolved in upcoming P3D V2 updates. A couple of these issues are as follows:
- Some flicker on the IS placed trees - This is fixed in the P3D V2.2 update due out some time this week.
- Windsocks do not work and in some instances, may not be visible. This is still an outstanding issue with no resolution on the horizon at this time.

Please enjoy this airport with our complements.

Please note the Freeware page will be updated in due course, so for now, please use the above link for the v2 installer.
