  1. Thank you for the explanation. You are right about being bound to what FSX offers. However, many boundaries people said were there have been broken with other products so that is why I checked again with this new release. Have a great day.
  2. Yes... Your point is? If there is 3 flights a day, and the traffic slider is set at 50% then there will only be 1 flight a day. 3 divided by 2 = 1.5 I'm not sure what it is your trying to tell me here. Is your point: the way FSX handles the amount of AI is fine and has no flaws? If so, I disagree, and my main point throughout this entire discussion is: the way FSX handles the amount of AI is rather deficient and leaves much to be desired.
  3. Yea, your right, but guess what? When I fly to some place like a regional airport, there are hardly any AI; thats the problem! So then I have to raise the sliders back up. Pain!
  4. I wouldn't want 200 AI in the middle of nowhere. If I wanted 200 AI in the middle of no where I would have said "minimum AI=200" or something to similar affect. I think having a setting for minimum AI would be particularly silly and unrealistic. However having a MAX setting would make it far easier to keep the performance of the system from bogging down without going into the display settings and changing it on the fly. I understand it is a limit of FSX. However many limits have been broken the past couple years with FSX. Thank you for the replies and I apologize if my choice of language was too short in my previous post.
  5. Yup, thats what I figured. Thanks for the response.
  6. Hello all. I recently got the Discus glider; pretty cool. Is anyone using the Discus and Active Sky Advanced or similar, along with cumulus X and sim probe? I have been utilizing http://www.xcskies.com/ to try to find real world weather conducive to soaring. My results have not been good. I have had an extremely hard time finding good conditions for soaring. Everywhere I try seems to have nearly no ridge lift (because of slow wind) and very minimal thermals. Could someone give me a hand? Thanks Nick Mathews
  7. The Discus. California City Municipal. Yes I used real weather. Time was around 19z on the 3 of Nov. I exited the flight, then loaded the cessna, then selected a different Discus livery. It worked right. I thought I might be doing something wrong.

  9. No, you are not understanding me. I do not want to limit traffic in a certain area. I want to limit the maximum amount of traffic around the entire globe. I would like to put a max AI cap for the whole sim, I.E. 200. Therefore no matter where I fly, no more than 200 AI would be loaded. This cannot be done with the traffic percentage sliders, because they reduce by percentage, not by number. If u reduce your AI percentage you do not limit the maximum amount of AI in the sim; you simple reduce the amount of AI regardless of the amount or location. I am not sure why this is so hard to grasp. If you want a demonstration, go to a regional airport with your traffic sliders set to 100%. Now, pull up the FSX menu, select "view" "view mode" "air traffic" Write down the number of AI. Now reduce the traffic sliders, and check the air traffic list again, u will see it reduced the AI. Now, go some place like New York and do the same thing. If you have My Traffic 2010 or similar you will not even be able to see the complete list, you will probably only see aircraft manufactured by manufactures that start with A and B because the list is so huge.
  10. Why is my altitude a negative value on the C4 with the pressure correctly set?!?!?!?!
  11. No, I don't want to limit some areas. I want to limit the maximum number of AI everywhere. The traffic sliders do not do this. If you lower them you are not placing a limit on the maximum number of AI. What you are doing is reducing--not limiting--the number of AI everywhere (hypothetical AI numbers): 100%= 300 AI in NYC, 5 AI in Eagle County Regional, Colorado. 50%= 150 AI in NYC, 2 AI in Eagle County Regional, Colorado.
  12. If you can limit the max number of AI aircraft; not by using the traffic slider percentage. Because using the traffic slider decreases the amount of traffic everywhere. I only want to limit the amount to a max number because the CPU becomes far too saturated in places like New York. As it stands now, if I fly somewhere like Iceland I can set both traffic sliders to 100% and this is obviously because there is not a whole lot of traffic there. However if I go to JFK or somewhere similar I have to bring the sliders down because there is so much more traffic. Then if I fly to some remote area I have to bring the traffic sliders back up. This is a total pain. I have nearly all of WOAI's packages installed.
  13. Hello all. I am considering purchasing My Traffic 2010, however I really want to understand much better than I do now, the amount of control you have over the AI. Can the manual be made available for download? Thank you Nick Mathews
  14. Anyone that is flying FSX and considering upgrading there graphics card needs to take a look at this chart here at Tom's Hardware. As you can see on the page, this benchmark is FSX SP2, 1280x1040, game AA, game AF, Ultra Quality. There are a few more benchmarks of FSX SP2 with different settings that you can look up. Most important to note, is that the NVidia 8800 GTS 512 MB is still the best card for FSX. See for yourself: Tom's Hardware FSX benchmark
