• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

    Adding Light to street lights

    Well, this may be a one man journey....but...... I may have had a breakthrough of sorts (in case anyone like me comes along later). If you installed Airport Design Editor, there is a Double Street light object in the library. here is the GUID so you can easily find...

    Adding Light to street lights

    I have a situation where there are a number of parking lot street lights on an airfield but right now they are totally dark at night. Having never done anything with night lighting effects, where would be the best place for me to start to learn to do this? There is a really nice Rio De Janerio...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Thanks again. Could be. However, extending the "layover" time seems to have helped. All my flight plans had been set to leave 20 minutes after arrival and as was suggested, that may have interfered with some flights. As of today, AI departures and arrivals seem to be working better. I'll do...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Too often, my aircraft arrive at the airport, then seem to forget to land. They drop to about 1000 ft, and even fly a downind leg, but then just meander away from the airport.....like the pilot put the plane on auto pilot then took a nappy. It's weird. Mind you, this is with general aviation...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    It seems that it's hit or miss. With the exact same AI aircraft and the exact same destination (using the same flight Plan), sometimes the aircraft arrive and land as expected and sometimes not. I can sit at an airport 10 minutes before an arrival is due and it never shows up. Then, simply...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Thanks for doing that test. Oddly, after my earlier test at MYAM, i reset the clock and ran it again....and oddly, the second time the expected arrival did arrive. I have no idea why. It seems random. Sometimes it works.....sometimes not. The first time there was no AI at MYAM.....dead...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Experiment: I moved my location to MYAM, moved my cessna into the grass about 75 feet off the runway, and then adjusted the Sim Time to 8 minutes before arrival of a scheduled AI flight. The flight never arrived. I then moved the Sim time to 5 minuted before the scheduled Departure of that...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Thanks for doing that. Ok, so the traffic lands with your sim. Are you using FSX ? I read that some add on scenery can cause problems? As Don suggested some time ago, maybe I should disable add on scenery and go from there? I'm wondering why it worked in yours but won't in my setup?

    It looks like Don has been at this AI stuff quite a while. You, sir, are a true asset to the flightsim community :)

    In another thread....from long ago....I found this interesting tidbit...... https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/another-fsx-ai-planes-not-arriving-problem.22897/ The OP says this solved his AI issues...but what do those files have to do with anything?

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    For Departures only .....or do they actually land at the destination airports? If so, can you give me one or two airport examples so I can try them? I used AIFP3 to create the flight plans. These are not stock FSX aircraft. Is that what you used to create yours or are you referring to stock...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    I wonder if I could use ADE to place an invisible Control Tower at X51 to get AI flights to land there? (assuming I had some personal desire to force AI landings there)

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Very interesting Bushpilot. Good observation that both of my airports are uncontrolled, thus no towers. All of the flights in question are VFR flights. I can confirm that the aircraft arrive within less than 1 nm of the respective airports, but they never land. I wonder if the AI is even...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Hmmmm.....interesting point. I should probably try an AI flight to a larger airport, such as Miami International.

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Hello Flattermann, I checked X51 (Homestead, FL) using ADE's fault finder and no faults were found. There are plenty of GA parking spots available there. I am still clueless as to why my AI aircraft all refuse to land at their destination airports. (sad)

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    I added a new flight plan from KFXE (Fort Lauderdale Executive, FL) to X51 (Homestead, FL) and changed the time between arrival and departure to 1 hour. Still, the AI aircraft flew to the X51 airport but never landed. From what I've read above, AIFP3 did it's part to get the aircraft to the...

    AIFP3 - AI Planes that fly to their destination but never actually land

    Good point and good suggestion. I will do exactly that (increase the time delay between arrival and departure). The arrival time and departure times are all set by default by AIFP3. So I assumed that the time was adequate as it was. But to be honest, that thought crossed my mind as we (my...
