P3D v3 Global AI Ship Traffic FSX and P3D

Three years after the start of this project the complete package is now available on www.avsim.com, www.flightsim.com, www.flightsimnorway.com, and www.simviation.com

The new package "Global AI Ship Traffic V1" includes all files and corrections published in the project previous to April 2016. In total more than 600 ships and AI routes covering almost all coastal areas of the globe.

The new package is compatible with FSX and P3D at least until P3Dv3.2. Some files will display better in one than the other sim, but all files can be used in both.

You can find the download here: http://library.avsim...php?DLID=194715

If you have the ships installed already, but you are unsure if you have all corrections etc, you can easily update using this new package. Only small thing - please remove the folder "AI_Hyundai_Container" from your old installation before pasting the new files. The rest of the files can just be over written.

The package contains models, textures, and effects by Henrik Nielsen, Jean-Pierre Fillion, Erwin Welker, Knud Kristoffersen, Milton Shupe, Manfred Siedler, Bernardo Barroso, Paul Donnelly, Finn Kristoffer, Didier Puentes, Andrew Thomsen, Antonio Diaz, Sebastien Viale, Alberto Garcia, and Robystar.

I would like to thank all for their contributions - and Arno for his useful Tools :)

Thank you, Henrik! You have really brought a new aspect to the flight simulator with the work you have done over the last years.
DeLuxe addon, besides a great developer you are a good guy giving us some aknowledge by the poor contribution:D, though we are the first admirer of your work that is true. I hope your projects don't stop here.
Ehorabuena y saludos. ya te digo que siempre me gusto la idea de implementar los traficos sobre todo regionales para los escenarios.

Buenos dias
Todos las contribuciones son importantes; sin el ayuda, apoyo y contribuciones grandes como pequeños de tanta gente seguramente habia dejado el proyecto hace mucho :)

And for those not speaking Spanish...
All contributions to this project are important; without the help, support, and contributions - large as small - from so many people I would probably have stopped the project long ago.

Part of what makes it fun to develop is exactly the interaction with so many creative people from around the world.

Very well done Henrik, Lovely work! I'm definitely gonna love this when flying over the ports of Rotterdam and Hamburg! Downloading it as soon as I get the chance.
First you can reduce to 5 %... Else you will also get all the ugly default ships once it works... Next, you need to make sure eventual FS9 traffic bgl files like WOAI or MAIW are converted to FSX format. Do it with AIFP - it is just a few clicks to do it with all files. To check it works go to Rio de Janeiro; you will always have ships moving in out of the Guanabara Bay in Rio.

I hope it will be in the A350 :)
Some A350s are supposed to be build at the Airbus Finkenwerder factory in Hamburg, which lays right next to the river leading to Hamburg's main harbor. I guess you could see some nice ships on a delivery flight ;)

I have to admit that actually the traffic doesn't go all the way into Hamburg...:oops: ... Living just a few hundred kilometers from Hamburg and Hamburg being a major harbour, I guess I have to feel a bit guilty... Anyway, Manfred Siedler has published routes for Hamburg using my ships and he has added some additional local and very nice models for Hamburg - and not least he has taken the time to test so the ships actually docks decently in the harbour. You can find his routes and ships here: www.simdocks.de

Mah you shouldn't, you did an amazing job making this package! Hamburg is just one small part I can do without ;) There are tons of other instances in which you can definitely see the traffic, approach to Boston for instance or to Hong Kong.

Tested it and it's awsome! I check out Rio (screenshot like you requested I guess or atleast my interprestqation of it) and the dutch harbour area "Maasvlakte 2" also known as "nieuwe Maasvlakte". Microsoft really turned their back on that area (ground looks arwfull) but the ships are great!
Would it be possible to get specific ships dock at specific possitions in the harbour? (I think I remember the layout)

-wrong screenshot, will remake it tomorrow-

Thank you (and those who contributed) for all your hard work and perseverance in assembling this excellent FS addon. Spending most of my flying time in naval aircraft, bringing the blue expanse to life greatly enhances the enjoyability.
