PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    Showing only VATSIM traffic at airports

    I have not yet seen any VATSIM active aircraft at an airport. I am trying to have only VATSIM traffic displayed - that is, no AI traffic at all.
    I am using VATSIM 3.4.5 with the BritishAvgeeks-AIG-MSFS-VATSIM-Rules.vmr file. I have the MSFS General Options Aircraft Traffic Type set to Off, Airport Vehicle Density set to zero, and Ground Aircraft Density set to zero.
    In the MSFS Content Manager I have the files AIG-AITRAFFIC-OCI-BETA and AIG-AITRAFFIC-OCI-Beta-CVT_
    as not installed. Should these be deleted? If so, how?
    How can I get the VATSIM traffic only displayed?

    In your vPilot/Swift client, are you getting any errors advising models are corrupt? If you type .aircraft (note the . at the beginning), does it show any on the list and what they are being substituted with?

    Those folders should contain all the models the VMR file will read. I'm using the same packs along with the AIG traffic downloaded via the AI Manager and have no issue seeing them.

      Hi Trevor
      Afraid I am still confused. I do not wish to see any AI traffic, just those pilots online with VATSIM. What do you mean by along with the AIG traffic downloaded via the AI Manager?

        The traffic on VATSIM is still using AI models to make them appear, so you still need to have AI models of the planes and liveries in order to actually see them.

          As Kevin says, you can only see other traffic if you've got models installed to replace them. For example, if you've no Ryanair 737-800 model installed, how does the sim show it? It needs a model for the file to link to and vPilot/Swift to then inject into the sim for you to see.

          The VMR file that BritishAvgeek uses references the models from the AIG AI Manager so I'd suggest downloading it, following the video tutorial(s) that are available on it and the models will then show correctly. Just because you install AI models doesn't mean that you'll suddenly have AI everywhere - if you've turned off AI in the sim, then all you'll see is the VATSIM traffic displayed using those models.

            RichardMcDonaldWoods Hi Richard, are your multiplayer and AI "world map" settings the same as in this video: https://youtu.be/7qteojsKf2I?t=72

              The AI traffic in MSFS is a complete disaster as it is right now. I hope that one day we can have a good 3rd party fix for all that.

                AIG Traffic is not good for you?

                AIG is excellent, the best we have for now. - C. Linden

              This should make things easier: https://github.com/Samueleonard/AIG-...ching-For-MSFS

              All of the models are already put together in a compressed file, so no need to mess with AIG. Installation instructions are on that page.

                I don’t think your original question has been answer and I believe the answer you are looking for is when you load your flight, I can not remember the exact wording now but on the conditions panel where you set weather, etc. make sure that multiplayer is set to OFF and AI live traffic or something like that is also set to OFF as well, then when you connect to VATSIM you will only see real pilots online on VATSIM.
