P3D v3 Global AI Ship Traffic FSX and P3D

I have reinstalled P3D and now it's time to get some boats in the seas. In the /sceneryworld/scenery .bgls it's easy to see where they are for ie. traffic_Ships_CS_St_Martin_21014.bgl, traffic_Ships_EU_Baltic_Samsoe_73610.bgl etc. etc., but it's hard to guess from the names in Simobjects/Boats like AI_Arthur_M_Anderson, AI_Federal_Ems etc. etc, in what parts of the world they belong. I know some boats like the Maersk fleet sails all over the world, but if I never fly in certain parts of the world ie. South America, Africa, and Asia, then I really don't need ships in those areas. I don't know how much impact on fps the ships have, but every bit of fps increase will always help. Is there any way to see which ships sails in which continents and sortere dem fra (sorry, couldn't think of the english phrase :) ) that I don't need?

Hi Jørn,
The ships are only loaded once you are flying in an area, so removing ships in other regions will not improve FPS. The traffic files do take some time to load at start up, but that doesn't affect FPS - But if you are very impatient to get started on your daily flight the recommendation would be to remove the routes belonging to other régions, which is simple to do from the naming as you suggest. In most areas the impact from the ships would be very minimal - each ship in general only adds one or two drawcalls, so only in areas with very tight traffic like off Rotterdam, you might see an impact.
In order to get a good overview of what is sailing where in case you e.g. want to save hard drive space by removing some ships I suggest you download Carl Vokes Locator for the Global AI Ship Traffic available here: https://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=194728
It gives you several different ways to find out which ships sail where.
Best regards (og god weekend :D )

Hello Henrik, your new ships look as good as ever.
I also finished "some" new models. Here are three examples of more than 50 new ships:










Happy new year to all.
They look fantastic!!!! THe last one seems very close to the one on from Sylt to Havneby, which I took last summer with my son and actually had somewhere on my list. Maybe a simple repaint… And Happy New year to you also.
 
Both!
In the upcoming new SimDocks website there will be a gallery of all my ships. There are ships that will be released as freeware but also ships that are intended for planned sceneries.

The Three Ships shown in my last article are intended for use in sceneries.
The Berlin (first picture) is part of a package that will include all German naval bases and ships (but this will take some time).

The other two ships are part of my next project. It will include the ports Cuxhaven and Brunsbüttel (with the lock into the Kiel Canal) and the naval airfield Nordholz.
 
Hi my friends. I want the A-140 atlantico & the HMS a-12 ocean . Where o in what file is it ? Because I downloaded the files Global ai ship traffic v1 & v2 and I don't see in anyplace. Thank you
 
The new release will be a complete package including also some corrections to existing models and routes. The model of Banzai above is e.g. a complete remake of the very first ship model I did. It is a quite heavy job so it has taken quite some time.
Loving your work....do you know if the English channel traffic will be increase?
