Thread: AI Aircraft cfg file not read

  1. Default AI Aircraft cfg file not read

    Hi all,
    I hope this message finds you well and that someone will be able to help me.

    After having installed thousands of repaints for AI planes for airlines via UTL I'm now adding Business Jets with AIFP.

    I installed 2 new models in the regular "AI Aircraft" (KCAI Gulfstream 650 and JBAI Challenger 600) folder in the SimObjects folder where I have 128 other aircraft models all working well with UTL and AIFP.
    When I go to AIFP and substitute the flightplan aircrafts, these new repaints from these 2 new folders don't show. I still have all the others appearing.
    UTL does not recognize them either.

    I checked both Aircraft cfg files and in particular the fltsim.X sequence. They are ok.

    I don't understand what's causing these 2 new folders not being "read". My guess is that it's coming from the cgf files but I can't figure out what's the issue.

    Any help or suggestion would be highly appreciated!

    Thank you!
    Pierre.

    A) What is UTL?

    B) Post the aircraft.cfg files.

    UTL is Ultimate Traffic Live from Flight1.
    I can't insert the 2 cfg files! It says "invalid file"! Anything related to the cfg files properties?

    Thanks for your help!!

    Something has gone wrong. Any file should be post-able, so you probably named them wrong.

    Check the file name and make sure you named them correctly, including the suffix. You were confused by `cgf` and the correct `cfg` in your first post! The late, great OPA explained the correct approach here:

    I'm wondering if this is your issue. fltsim.0 through 3 need to be at the very top of the .cfg file. I've never seen that at the bottom. While it may work in the Sim, it may not for a utility since it's expecting to see the fltsim.0 - fltsim.3 entries at the top.

    Just tried it but did not work either!
    All my cfg have aicrafts at the bottom. I did that myself. But they all work except those 2 new ones.
    I created the 2 new folders directly in the AI aircraft folder. Then I sent the base/p3d files to these created folders. For the the other aircrafts I directly downloaded from the developer base model. Could that come from here? issue with rights? if so I'm not sure what to look at as they seem to be the same than the others.
    Thanks again for your support!!

    Did you create flight plans already for these two planes or did you download flight plans for these two planes? Can you upload the flight plans please? Zip the BGL file and upload the zip.

    I hate to argue semantics, but this is driving me nuts. Nowhere on the webpage does it mention OPA publishing that content, and no where on that webpage is an author even mentioned. Not even in the source code.

    Unless you meant to say something along the lines of, "The late, great OPA explained the correct approach cited from this article here: *insert TLD.*"

    I had that webpage in my signature before, and used it as a reference quite often. Even the special effects SDK documentation. Interesting to note, at the top of that webpage says it's a 97 minute read. Now did Microsoft pay someone to read it and time how long it took? It's really not something to read verbatim, but as a reference source for certain entries. Though, many years ago I did read the entire thing. LOL!

    Seems like a lot of websites say their article is a four minute read, a three minute read, a two minute read, etc. But to those that can read whole sentences in one go, they're lying! LOL
