View Full Version : AI aircraft that would be compatible in DX10 mode?

Just wondering if anyone knows of any freeware/payware AI that is compatible with DX10 mode in FSX, as DX10 mode makes my rendering frames extremely smooth compared to DX9. I tried to search for a topic on this but could not find anthing related to it. Although I'm sure the question has been asked before.

There is not many freeware.. there maybe none but for payware i can say by testing on my own pc that Ultimate traffic 2 works under directx 10 preview mode.

Thanx for the reply Gandy. UT2 looks like a great add-on, I was searching their site to see if military AI aircraft were included or able to be purchased seperately, but have not found any info on that, do you know if military aircraft are available with it or in addition?

The three commercial packages - Ultimate Traffic 2, My Traffic X and Traffic X all offer DX-10 compatability. Flight 1 - which supports the development of Ultimate Traffic, has never shown an interest in military AI that I've seen. That may be changing. Military aircraft from the Traffic Plus Packs by Just Flight will work but I don't believe all the models are FSX native/ DX-10 compatible. I believe all the military aircraft models with My Traffic X are DX-10 compatible. Both My Traffic and Traffic have added a military component in the past and seem to be still following that track.
Of course the best military AI comes from Military AI Works, but that is all FS9 stuff.
The biggest problem for military AI is that all the military bases in FSX have to be modified to add parking spaces. A high percentage of the bases need aprons and taxiways added, along with new airport background polygons. My Traffic X and Traffic X both include dozens of military base parking files. I personally like the free downloads of military base "AFCADS" both Traffic X and My Traffic X offer.
