I took the risk and installed GA
italics are oldsamer's anotation to parts of the FSX_GA_Traffic readme
This is the second Release Candidate of FSX GA-Traffic. The version is not compatible with GA-Traffic for FS9 or the previous BETA version! It only works withs FSX. (and FSX sp1)
To install just extract the ZIP to a temporary folder and start the setup.exe. (Did my winXp extract after D/L ?, I didn't have to do this, it was "extracted" within the zip folder I downloaded)
I recommend a max traffic generation setting of 50% or less. If you have special AI optimized planes and a high end computer you could try 70%, but more will you give so much traffic that it is difficult or impossible to send a communication message. (My airline traffic is 0% & general aviation is 100% without problems)
IMPORTANT: All traffic generated with FSX GA-Traffic will be shown in FSX, regardless of the slider settings in FSX!
So please don't generate more traffic than your computer can handle! (havn't so far)
I added a new feature, which allows to select or deselect whole countries in the Airports Tab. To use this feature I recommend to first select "World" and then remove "Use" and press apply. This will deselect ALL countries. After that go to the countries you want and select the "Use" for the country you want, press apply and select the next country. After finishing that the "Generate Flightplan" will only generate Flightplans for the selected countries. To select all countries again, just select "Use" at "World".
(I did that, then only selected to use Texas. Then un-selected with (?) all aircraft except yellow cubs. and use only small fields by student pilots. also setup GA to use max ramp parking spaces.)
note: ya gotta "generate flightplan" before starting FSX !!
Now TEXAS is populated by 100s of yellow cubs flying touch and gos... YA
