• 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.

The relevence of file fs10.aircrafttypes.csv

Hello there. I have given up on using Live Traffic in MSFS2020, and decided that I prefer to use OFFLINE AI Traffic. I have several FSX converted aircraft, which I think are converted correctly. I have used AIFP 3 to compile AIG* flightplans which have been placed in the Custom Traffic folder, within Community folder, refreshed the .json file accordingly, but I cant get ANY to show up, so I have 2 questions.

In each aircraft.cfg file I have set icao_generic=1 and IsAirTraffic=1, so I assume that I need to set in the traffic options "Use generic aircraft models to ON. The problem is, whether its ON or OFF, the sim crashes when its loading the selected airport. As soon as I take out the traffic files associated with the new AI, it loads OK, so dont know if its the newly added traffic files, or the newly added AI aircraft.

I have AI Airliners traffic density set at 54%

My second question is regarding the fs10.aircrafttypes.csv file. Does this file have to be in the same folder as the newly created traffic files (Like it is in the original FS_base_ai_traffic folder) but more importantly, does it need to be updated to reflect the newly added ai aircraft and be put into the Custom AI folder, within the community folder? Perhaps this is why the sim is crashing when loading up the selected flight, as I don't have that .csv file in my Custom traffic folder?

Below is an example of a newly added FSX converted aircraft

Thanks for any comments! Cheers Chris
