Configuring with Ultimate Traffic
« on: March 08, 2008, 01:51:38 PM »
Hi everyone,

Can these flight plans be configured to be used with Ultimate Traffic? I copied the files over to the UT import directory and formatted them the way the UT instructions specified, but I keep getting an error message: "No flightplan.txt found". Am I missing something?

Thanks

It has been a while since I have used UT, but I think you need to rename each file from AIG_wixxxxxx to aircraft.txt, airports.txt and flightplans.txt.  Also the UT importer does not like blank, empty lines after the data, so go into each file and make sure that there are no empty lines.  After importing them in and before compiling, you will need to deselect the airline from UT's compile option so that UT does not compile the older schedules for that airline.
There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

What do you mean by "no blank spaces"? So when I'm done, I'm left with a continuous line from beginning to end for each file?

On the last line in each .txt file, hit the delete button until there are no more empty lines beneath the last entry.  Blank/empty lines in the files cause the UT compiler to fail.

Ok thanks.

Just so you can get a sense of what I'm dealing with, here's the Air Canada flight plan that I'm starting with:

aig_winter_2007-2008_aircanada
aig_winter_2007-2008_aircanadajazz

I created airports.txt, aircraft.txt and flightplans.txt into my D:\FlightSimulator9\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic\Import Airline directory. I removed any blank lines and REM lines from each file, but I still get an error saying that it can't read the aircraft.txt file and that the flightplans.txt file is not in that folder. Confused

Here's the airport file:

And here's a sample of the flightplan that I modified. All I did was take out the REM statements and backspaced beneath the other entry. To be sure, I turned word wrap off and checked the entire file. It's one continuous line with no gaps at all:

You might be better off asking over in the UT forums.  It has been several months since I have used UT, I uninstalled it when joining up with AIG.  You'll still see my name in their forums (Craig), but some of the other support guys can be of better help since they have the program installed.  I sometimes suffer from CRS syndrome (Can't Remember Sh T) and this appears to be one of those times.
There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
