View Full Version : Is anything out yet for AI seperation?
02-16-2005, 02:49 PM
Its really one of the most important issues with flight sim. I've something about someone working on a program where you can choose the separation alt and speed of ai planes but it was still work in progress about a month ago. I look it up and let you know unless you know about it already, let me know if you have any other updates?
Secondly Radar contact is in the works version 4 seems to help ai separation.
Any other program or suggestion?
P.s. i haven't flown online i prefer the realism of lots of traffic around me real world schedules, just my preference.
And atcvox sounds very good but no AI interaction.

Tom, that's great - thanks for posting that link. Will definately love when that is released. That will be the new toy I chew on for awhile...

I'm not registered on the site so I can't ask the question. Maybe someone knows the answer here.
I understand how the author says it will work with AI aircraft but he says ATC won't separate you from the aircraft in front. That's no problem, I think we pretty much do that now, BUT....... will ATC separate following aircraft from your's?

They say ai speeds are adjustable on final; so if you maintain the same speed separation is maintained. But the other problem remains unsolved; ai slow to turn off the active...let's hope someone recognizes this issue also while in the process.

That's not quite what I meant.
To begin with we don't know at the moment what the separation is going to be but let's suppose it's 4 miles. The question I'm asking is, if there are two AI aircraft following each other at, say 7 miles, and ATC slots you in between (maybe they won't do that, I don't know), and you reduce your speed to give the required 4 miles, will ATC then reduce the speed of the following aircraft to give 4 miles between you and it? Or, if your approach speed is lower than the preceeding aircraft, so increasing the separation. will ATC reduce the speed of the following aircraft here?
See what I mean?

I see what you mean. My guess is since atc clears you as far as 20 miles out for approach, you'll have to squeeze in between the ai using tcas. I can't imagine atc leaving a gap for you. Or they program ai to keep a certain distance from you the same way they keep distance from each other.

If the latter is true all the better. That's what I was hoping for, that ATC can worry about the following aircraft, not me.
