Wonderful work, Graham. Sounds like it will come right in time for Australia v2. I'm really looking forward to both works.

Your traffic makes New Zealand and Australia for me, never fly anywhere else anymore. Military? Woohoo, can't wait for the update! Thanks for this generous gift!

Many thanks for this Graham.

Although not a great modern military fan these wonderful planes will be a welcome addition when flying around this great land.

The GA planes are beautiful looking too.

It's unbelievable what you do for the community, Graham. I use Ultimate Traffic Live for most parts of the world with mixed results, but in Australia and New Zealand I always turn it off and use your package instead. It's way ahead of Ultimate Traffic in this region, especially for the remote routes. I was pleasantly surprised to see that even the BN-2 Islanders service from Bundaberg and Hervey Bay to Lady Elliott Island was included in your last version. Thank you very much for your great work.

Excellent news Graham and thank you so much.

Are you rewriting flight plans for NZ airlines as well?

There've been some fairly significant changes on this side of the ditch such as the Air NZ B787 Auckland-Chicago direct flight.

Air Chathams has also expanded its operations around NZ with new aircraft and new destinations.

There are also a lot more new types of GA and light sport aircraft on the scene not to mention a whole swag of corporate and privately owned business jets swanning around the country.

Wonderful news Graham!

I only use your current FTX AU AI traffic and have everything else turned off.

In my flying, I explore different parts of Australia, PNG, NZ and I am often surprised to see what unique and appropriate aircraft turns up at some of the smaller airports I visit, in my B737. You seems to have covered them all.

I also utilise Super Traffic board on a separate PC to display Arrivals and Departures. 

The exciting active environment displayed draws many comments from visitors to my cockpit.

Looking forward to the updated Military option as I occasionally fly into various military airports on circuits around Australia.

 

(Side Note: anyone know of an updated Williamtown/Newcastle airport? Not very happy with the current one I have. I preferred the older FS9 version)

Excellent work again Graham. Is it only the military aircraft to be

used for P43d V4 or the entire Au package? as I only use FSX.

Cheers

Any helicopter traffic?

Not in this release but I am looking at adding helicopter AI traffic at some stage. I just need to get my head around how to make them work in the sim. I have some nice AI models and have done a few VH- paints, I just need to bring it all together.

I'm sorry but it is the entire AU AI package that will be for P3D V4 only. I no longer have FSX installed and have no means to develop for that platform any longer. All the aircraft in this update have been compiled for P3D V4 only and will not work in any earlier sims.

 

The FTX AU AI Traffic pack I released a year or so back for FSX and earlier versions of P3D is still available for download on OrbxDirect.

New Zealand only has a few minor changes in this update but I am looking at revising all NZ flight plans later this year. I have included the new Air New Zealand Airbus A321 Neo's in this update though.

 

Having said that, I'll see if I can slip the Air Chathams Saab 340's into this update.

Thanks Graham for the reply. I'm thinking I may have to save and upgrade to P3D V4,

as your AI package is the only one I use. Its awesome.

cheers

Hi Graham

 

 I wont be able to use this since I don't have p3d. but have been looking around for the a321 paints for AIR NZ as I did some updated plans for them for myself, but none is available. are you able to share the paint somehow or would that be not possible

Good to hear helicopter AI is planned.  If you need some information on configuring AI helicopters I suggest you contact the good gentlemen at Return to Misty Moorings, in particular, those folks who developed the Blue Wave Energy Partners scenario.  They have an AI helicopter working in their scenery.  There are also AI helicopters in the Tongass Fjords scenery.  So, if you know any of those folks perhaps they would provide insight as well.

 

Looking forward to your product.

Danny

Thank you Graham, you always come up with these wonderful updates to your

superb AI package when we least expect it. Much appreciated from all of us.

Nice work and good to see Australia getting some new attention well done. Would be great to see the RFDS (Royal Flying Doctor Service) get some recognition as well. They are the back bone of the Aussie outback and transporting sick people to were they need to go. They are a huge imprint of the Australian way and would love to see an AI for them with the PC-12 included please?

There are at least 25 individual RFDS PC-12's included in the pack, each with it's own flight plans. This is in addition to an assortment of RFDS Beechcraft King Air B200's plus some King Air B350's which are new in this update.

You're a Champ, Graham.

Couldn't agree more with all of the above comments. Your dedication to our hobby is definitely worth an award.

I for one would not be flightsimming at all were it not for your superb Aus AI package, and am really looking forward to the release of the update.

It is impossible for an average simmer like me to get my head around how much time and effort must be required to produce these packages.... we are indeed grateful.

Cheers mate.

The next version of the FTX AU AI Traffic pack is nearing completion so I feel it is time to release some of the content and features to be included in this major update.

............

It should be noted that this update will be for P43D V4 only. The task of maintaining this package for multiple flight simming platforms is becoming just too cumbersome given the size and scope of the project

 

 

With your comment that maintaining this package (and I assume other packages) is becoming too cumbersome for multiple platforms, would I be correct in saying that you are tending to shift your attention away from FSX (adding and updating less of the FSX packages) in favour of P3D.?

I am just wondering if I should really start to consider the purchase of a new computer and switch over to P3D.. (not my preferred option)

Cheers,

Lance.

Graham mentioned earlier, he is no longer developing anything for FSX, so looks like P3D for you my friend:smile:

Looks my wish for a holiday this year have just been shattered, a new computer it must be.

And maybe a few drinks under a beach umbrella in my back yard instead of the glorious beaches of Kuta..

This is one that I know of, have a scroll through. All are probably a significant update if you only have the default. Lawrence is doing some nice work for the Aussie airbases.

Yeah, you are right Don. Maybe a week in Dunsborough instead of Bali. But the idea of a whole suite of software to install is not an enjoyable prospect.

Oh well. the sacrifices we make..
