AI Ground Traffic

Post by a.trailblazer7 » 15 Sep 2009, 15:42

Hope I'm making sense here...I'm looking for a program if there is one for fs9 to add more animated ground servicing (airport vehicles). I saw in Flightsim.com a program called Rwy 12 Library Collection, it has 4 files to download. Not sure if that is what I'm looking for or if you can even add that to FS9, (ground vehicles) I know FSX has them already. Thanks for the help and advise Crew! :smokin:

In order to add ground vehicles to an airport in FS9, you need to get scenery for that specific airport. AFAIK, FS9 does not autogen much in the way of airport scenery, it is all placed. Animated ground vehicles for FS9 definitely need scenery.

The Rwy12 libraries are a collection of scenery objects that scenery designers can use when making airports. Since they are generic objects, it is easier for the designers to reference the libraries than it is to incorporate the objects into their sceneries directly (and it saves hard drive space for the user, much the same way as aliasing panels and sounds :D).

Ok, glad I didn't download Rwy 12 then. Will start looking for just ariports then. Thanks :)
Just seen some screen shots of aircraft w/ground craft around them and thought that was just a cool addition to flight sim

Let me ask then...after re-reading your post, and looking at some files, should I get Rwy12 program?

Only if you plan on downloading scenery that requires rw12 objects.

Rwy12 is just a collection of scenery objects and textures. You won't actually see anything unless you also use scenery that uses Rwy12 (they should mention it in the description). If you are planning on downloading a bunch of airport sceneries, then I would say go ahead and download Rwy12 so that you have it already and don't have to get it later when you find a scenery that needs it.
