AI aircraft question and contrail question.

ebthrasher Guest


2 quick questions:

1. Is there a way to get the call sign, height, destination information for other aircraft that are more than 10 miles away? ATC is always talking to other aircraft, and I would like to know where they are, even though realistically I wouldn't be able to see them.

2. Is there a way to make the contrails of other aircraft last longer than 15 seconds. Would be cool to have really long contrails streaking through the sky.....

Thanks for your help!

Not really sure about the first question, though I believe that FS Live Traffic means you can monitor the flight plans, positions etc of all AI traffic.

I think there is an add on to increase the contrails of an aircraft, I'll have a look around for you. 😀

I found something that may be useful. Go here ---> and go to file library at the top, search in FS2004 Downloads and type "contrails" in the search bar. There are a couple on the first page, and a good one on the second page. Hope that helps. 😀

For the Live Traffic, here is a link for it. Learn how to use it, and it might be good fun 😀

Hey thanks for the quick reply! I'll download those contrail files, and see if they work for me.

On the second question, I do have Ultimate Traffic. Is this the same type of program as Live traffic? I wonder if there is a config file anywhere that lets you change the max distance AI info is displayed???

Thanks again for your help!

Ill have a look in the config files, but I'm not sure whether they are in there.

I don't think FS Live the same as Ultimate Traffic because that adds aircraft, whereas I believe FS Live just tracks the aircraft. Agus04 is the best person to ask seeing as he gave the link.
