Installing Aircraft in FSX - Flight Simulator X Tutorial - FS Tips - Addons

How to Install Addon Aircraft in FSX

This tutorial will walk you through the steps of installing addon aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator X. On this page, I'm going to be using Dino Cattaneo's FSX Grumman F-14D Tomcat Package v1.06. which can be download from FSDownload or Fly Away Simulation. Windows 7 is the operating system being used in this tutorial.

It is helpful to have hidden files and folders, along with file extensions shown. To do this, go to folder options, click on the view tab, and then check off the two boxes titled: "show hidden files, folders, and drives" and uncheck "hide extensions for known file types". Still don't get it, click here for more help.

I like to have a separate folder in My Documents to place all the addons I get and extract them there. This makes it easier to organize and copy just what you need to the FSX folder in program files than extracting everything to there in the first place. You can choose to do this or not, it's totally up to you.

Download and extract the aicraft file. Most of the aircraft that you will download are contained in a zip or rar file. You can either right click the .zip file and press extract all, running through the extraction wizard, or use a program such as Winrar, Winzip. or 7-zip to extract it. All do the same thing. If the file is a .exe or .msi, then you can just run the installer and it should automatically be installed for you.

Extracting the 1F14D106.zip file (Winrar in this example).

Now that the file is extracted, take a look inside and see what it contains. You need to copy the right files and folders to the correct places within the main FSX folder. This can be found in the following directories depending on your OS.

32 bit. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\
64 bit. C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\

DO NOT paste the downloads directly in this folder, they will not work. Read on for more info.

There are 4 main folders, and 2 other files that are needed at a minimum to make the download function. They are the model. texture. panel. and sound folders, along with the aircraft.cfg and "name of addon".air file. See below for an explanation of each of the 6 parts and a few more.

This contains the model used by the addon. The .mdl file is the model and there is also a model.cfg file in here. If the addon has virtual cockpit it will ussualy have 2 .mdl files, one for the exterior, and one for the interior.

This contains all the textures used by the model. The main "Texture" folder will contain all the textures or images needed for it to display properly on the model. If the addon has more than one texture, each additional texture folder will ussually contain only unique textures associated with a certain livery or variation instead of having a complete copy of all the textures which would include base textures, cockpit, afterburners, etc. The thumbnail.jpg image is the thumbnail that shows up in FSX. The plane will work if an addon texture is missing the thumbnail.

Includes the .wav files which are the actual sound files and the sound.cfg, which determines what the aircraft sounds like.

Same as above except for ai (Artificial Intelligence-computer controlled planes) versions of the addon, or if it's used by other players in multiplayer.

Controls how the aircraft functions.

NpCmoveAircraft is a Lua script in the Numberpad Control family of FSX scripts that can be used to move an aircraft to a new position. Each step includes prompts for the required input and format. User inputs include the DISTANCE to move (NMs), the DIRECTION to move (degrees magnetic), the desired aircraft ALTITUDE (ft), the desired aircraft HEADING (degrees magnetic), and the desired aircraft IAS (Kts) along with the LANDING GEAR POSITION -- up (u), down (d) or fixed (f). Or for any of the five inputs the user can simply enter a carriage return (Enter key) to signify NO CHANGE for that particular entry. Prior to the move the aircraft can be on the ground or in the air. So, for example, NpCmoveAircraft can be used to simply turn an a/c around, to move it to the other end of a runway, to re-position it for another approach after landing, to jump ahead in cruise, to catch up to another a/c, etc. NpCmoveAircraft works with default FSX aircraft and many add-on aircraft that adhere to the standard FSUIPC offsets. A registered copy of FSUIPC is required to execute the NpCmoveAircraft Lua script. Simply copy the script to the Modules folder of FSX and assign a �hot key�, button or switch to activate the script.

FullWindowX. There is serious limitation in running FSX on multi monitor setups. You either run it full screen mode - but only one monitor is usable in this case, or run it in window - but the main view is polluted by border, caption and the taskbar. FullWindowX partially solves this issue by running FSX in full screen windowed mode without borders. You can toggle full screen mode with Ctrl+ENTER and also set it to be default for you simulator by enabling it in settings.

SimMarket: MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX FSXSE P3D

The latest technology of AI Traffic for FSX and Prepar3D!

Supported simulators are Microsoft Flight Simulator X, Microsoft Flight Simulator X Steam Edition, Prepar3D Version 1 (1.4 recommended), Prepar3D Version 2 (up to version 2.5).

Based on award winning MyTraffic 5, the leading AI traffic program for FSX, this new build is largely reorganized for simultanous support of various simulators. All included airports and schedules have been rebuild for the needs of Prepar3D V2.3 and above. Ihe included aircraft types are in the highly optimized FSX Service Pack 2 format, pairing top optical quality with ultimate performance

5,560,000+ weekly AI Flights - MyTraffic X includes over 5,560,000 (yes, that's correct – almost 6 million) AI flights per week between 8,262 airports in all regions of the world. These flights include international, national, regional, commuter, general aviation, cargo, amphibian airlines, military and touch and go circuits.

Flights are generated based on real world data and, where data are limited, on a realistic model - All traffic is generated based on real-life traffic patterns. You will see airlines at airports and hubs which are consistent with their real-world operations. Where available, flight plans are modeled after real world observations giving you a high level of realism without the boring uniformity of products that restrict themselves solely to published schedules.

8,262 Airports bustling with AI Traffic - MyTraffic X flies AI Traffic between more than 8,200 airports in all corners of the world. The AI capabilities of 2400 airports are enhanced in this package, including airline to gate associations for many airports. All aircraft behave realistically during different phases of their flight. Parking positions are also assigned in an accurate manner. For example, airliners will taxi to their gates, cargo aircraft will park at cargo positions situated near the respective airport cargo facilities. AI Traffic will behave in the same way even at add-on sceneries, provided that they are fully FSX compatible.

Two dozen new airports – Flight Simulator X has a good coverage of airports in Northern America and Western Europe, but many important airports in other parts of the world are completely missing, not even a single runway. Included are now 12 completely new built addon airports, like the large Moscow area regional airport Byokvo, Myachkovo and Ostafyevo – you even can fly to Grozny now! MyTraffic X even delivers a complete brand new Mega Airport, a detailed version of VTBS Bangkok Suvarnabhumi is included and busy with international traffic, as the new Doha airport OTHH. You also find the brand new airport of Lleida-Alquaire in Spain, and a number of all new airports in China and India.

Touch and Go flights into more than 100 small airfields.

Airliner, General Aviation and Military Traffic - With MyTraffic X you get yourself the only AI Traffic generator that treats all three types of aviation traffic with the same priority. And not only for current schedules; even going back in history to the beginning of the jet age is possible for owners of FSX professional edition or Prepar3D.

5594 Liveries - MyTraffic X includes more than 5500 aircraft liveries and this number will keep growing, coming from about 2140 different airlines (among them 400 military units located at their home bases and 1600 civilian airlines).

201 Aircraft Models - From Airbus over Boeing to Yakolevs and Cessnas to Embraers, MyTraffic includes them all. All models are created with GMAX optimized for high frame rates even at very busy airports. 191 of these aircrafts with more than 5000 paints were created from scratch in the new format introduced with Flight Simulator X Service Pack 2, to remove display errors as well as to increase performance beyond the one offered by Microsoft stock planes. Bringing realistic AI traffic to all parts of the world, MyTraffic can be oftenly observed to provide better performance even with more aircrafts around you than FSX stock AI traffic.

The most important airliner families, the Airbus A318-A321, the Boeing 737-300 to B737-900ER, and the mighty B747s from -200 to the new B747-8F and I have been largely rebuild using textured moving wing parts to further increase the eye candidness within the little computer budget allowed for AI traffic. Version 5.4a brings the overhaul of the Boeing 767-200 and -300 fleets. MyTraffic 6 keeps on track by resenting the A350-900 and the B787-900.

Enhanced Night Lightings – Using a newly developed, simple management tool, the user can now change the ground animation behavior and the long distance night light behavior, balancing between system load and hardware capabilities.

Full Support for Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 – all components now are modified and tested to work under Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. For daily operation, the User Access Control (UAC) may be switched on. If a user wants to make changes to a setting under Vista or Windows 7, he only needs the rights to do so set in the file system. MyTraffic and all included tools fully support the 64bit version of Windows 7.

High level Support for the DX10 Preview introduced with FSX SP2 and Acceleration Pack - MyTraffic X Professional comes with two sets of schedules, switching between these is a simple mouse click in the MyTraffic Communicator. The Direct X 9 schedules use all aircraft models and paints, while the Direct X 10 schedules are restricted to the FSX SP2 compatible types only. Since these count all Western airliners and all larger Western commuters now, you will meet a larger variety of DX10 compatible airliners in MyTraffic X world wide as you ever saw in any other legacy AI package, or has been promised by anybody else. DX10 support for military aircraft is included now with version 5.3, even historic schedules can be usedwith some restrictions under DSX10 now.

Simplicity is the key - MyTraffic X is simple by virtue. We do not overload our add-on with an unnecessary array of features, menus and other distractions. It is our philosophy to keep MyTraffic X as simple to use, yet as powerful as possible! Once installed, you just can fly and enjoy the life around you. This also means that MyTraffic in no instance bypasses the Microsoft supplied logic for AI traffic.

MyTraffic X Editor* - is an advanced AI Traffic configuration utility allowing the generation of thousands of flight plans at the click of a button, all based on user adjustable parameters. Capable of recognizing geographic regions, country borders, and the history of airline fleets, the editor makes sure that you see the right traffic in the right region. It is accompanied by a new tool to simply code airline routes in a way an order of magnitude faster than all manual schedule tools released in the past. Like with any software development tool, you need a few days of learning to really understand how to get the optimum out of this tool.

* This feature requires that you have the SDK of Flight Simulator X installed, available to users of Flight Simulator X professional (Deluxe) edition.

MyTraffic Communicator - is a tool to support the user to get to information, to support, to make settings in their FSX and MyTraffic setups, to repair installations that got broken, and to download updates and patches. The Communicator must be used during installation to set up the system.

MyTraffic Interactive – this is the tool users dreamed of for long, now is included in MyTraffic to open a new dimension of possibilities. While FSX is running, user can create AI aircraft, that enter into the scenes, and let them fly real flight plans – all this with a few mouse clicks! You not only can set them onto an airport, you also can create them airborne now.

ATC Sound Update – All MyTraffic modifications are now included into EditVoicePack, the tool you need to make any changes to ATC.

Nice to have, BUT BEWARE. This is an amazing addon to have for realism,but for the most part all this addon gives you is issues. First of all, the install is a joke. It is not an automatic installer like pretty much every other addon out there. You have to tell the files where to go through weird software and do a manual install. Second it is very hard once it is installed (I followed the instructions exactly) to get it working. I used this with FSX, FSX:SE, and now P3D and each one has a major issue with trying to get it working (especially P3D). Once its working, it keeps crashing my game (happened on all 3). It is NOT the computer i am running on. My computer has a overclocked i7 about 4.5GHZ, dual Titan X (overclocked on top of that). and 64GB of some of the best RAM out there. It causes crashing during the loading screen, descent into an airport, or a few minutes after departure (FSX:SE mostly). It is some nice eyecandy in the sims, but just KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO BE UP AGAINST!

*Verified Product User*

An excellent traffic add-on that does require a little more manual installing than should be necessary. Not everyone has spent hours under the hood of the simulator to figure out all the bells in whistles. Thankfully there is a good enough guide PDF that comes with this to help you get it installed. It took me about 5 minutes to get it up and running and tons of traffic spawns in everywhere. Note; if you don't want your performance trashed be sure you use an AI traffic limiter to force FSX/P3D to only spawn so many craft in. I use a value of 80 in Pete Dowson's FSUIPC4 and it works great. Smooth frame rates and plenty of traffic even inside the PMDG 737NGX. The people giving this product 1 star are probably those who skipped the PDF instructions and just dove right in. Look before you leap folks.

installing in fsx steam is a drama.
You must copy and paste into your files. Then no visible liveries you've only existing as orbit. They have been renamed eg PH-J23.

If you want to populate your FSX,FSXSE and P3D airports,(standard and third party), with Ai aircraft, this program will do it for you. No matter which airport I went to or installed, MT6 would always fill it with the correct airlines and aircraft, depending upon your traffic slider%. Quality of the models was ok. Several schedules, latest being 2015, are provided for various years, including historic aircraft. See below for schedule details.

I have a mega Heathrow scenery airport. If you set MT6 traffic slider to 100%, you can park on the end of the active runway and plane spot as landings and take off's never cease.

A few issues I have with MT6 are,

You may have a few issues with installation if you do not follow the instructions.In fairness, MT6 is using code from the early times of flight sim, making it impossible to provide some functions unless you have certain toolbox programs, which the author can't provide, but are usually easily found.

The copious amounts of instructions do not flow, and are very disjointed. There is no MT6 manual, but a compendium of manuals from previous versions for various functions.When you get into some of the database screens, they are different to the instructions, due to later versions. The "instructions" for schedule changes are extremely difficult to follow and are not really designed for public consumption.

The schedules are not real life but a mathematical model of timings between various airports on a round robin structure. The schedules reflect the type of aircraft you are likely to see at an airport in each of the years. AI Aircraft fly in a straight line between airports.To change these timings is not easy.

If this program ever got a good front end to help with installation, and a tutorial for many of its excellent features, including schedule changes, it would be a winner worth so much more than its present bargain price.

Excellent AI Traffic program for my P3D 2.5/ Win7 x64 world. Commercial, cargo, GA and military flights to all but the tiniest of airfields. MyTrafficPro 6 installed with no problem. I've been using this from one iteration to the next since 2006 and love the twice annual updates with livery and general route changes. Read the installation instructions carefully and it'l be a breeze. Set it and forget it. However, should you be befuddled, flummoxed or otherwise challenged, the developer has an active and informative support site.

*Verified Product User*

I love my Traffic and have used it before. You install it, and it does everything automatically. I always see AI aircraft of all kinds, and it is geared to the airport I am at. Great program if you like something that is hassle free and just works.

*Verified Product User*

I wish I hadn't bought this. I know from the comments some people have managed to install this but I and a good few others have definitely not been able to. It's been a waste of money and Sim Market should NOT have it on it's list.

I have used Flight Simulator from when it was FS2002. I have used FSX since it first came out and I have installed over 100 addons, WITHOUT A PROBLEM until this. You have to read and follow the Installation Manual. It is written SO badly, even the English and spelling is full of errors. I used to teach computing, but for example:

'Some functions of MyTraffic require a tool provided in the SDK. If you want to change the currently active schedules, or if you want to program schedules yourself, you need to compile them from the readable text form to binary data format. The tool needed for this compilation is a program called TrafficDataBaseBuilder.exe, you find it in your SDK installation, a typical path to it is. ' I have never heard of SDK, have you? Do you know what 'binary data format is. I don't and I'm sure that many FSX users don't! I have tried to install it without any success and now my FSX is a mess and I am going to have to either repair it or maybe even reintsall it.

Clearly this MYTraffic 6 has obviously been created very badly. We should be able to install it just like any other addon! Rubbish!

*Verified Product User*

No complaints here. Was an easy install on windows 8.1 by following the directions provided. Great addition to my FSX.

*Verified Product User*

Bought it 18. August 2015. No regrets. I have FSX and P3D installed and as Long as you read the Manual properly, it installs easy. My Traffic is installed on seperate drive so both Simulators have Access to i, which is grea, because you no longer have to install product twice. You Need to be aware then that you have to point the path into the Directory where you installed My Traffic, when adding to scenery within FSX and P3D. That was not clear in the Manual, hence only 4 Stars.

*Verified Product User*

Hello to you all,

I have read the Forum and the reviews overhere. I had some doubts to buy it or not. A lot of negative reviews. Searching on Google, made me certain to purchase it and would see if I face these mentioned problems too. On Google most of the people advides to choose for MyTraffic, whic I did.

And. It took me less than 30 minutes to install it. Follow the installation and setup advise and it worked right away.

So as said. READ THE MANUAL and it would be installed before your cup of caffee is empty.

*Verified Product User*

I've been trying to install this for hours now without any luck. I would of saved my $35 dollars and use the freeware that's easier to install than this product

This product does not have a registration key, you can simply execute the downloaded file to install

FSX, FSX-SE, P3D V1, P3DV2.0-2.4, P3DV2.5
requires 10.5GB of hard disk space! Any hardware that runs FSX, FSX-SE, P3D V1, P3DV2.0-2.4, P3DV2.5 with acceptable performance including some default AI traffic can run MyTraffic 6 with more traffic and the same performance. Usage under DX10 preview requires a DX10 capable graphics card. Microsoft DOT net 3.5 or above is strongly recommended, since the included auxiliary tools are based on this. Usage without these tools is possible, but requires higher skills including reading manuals.

As a former UT2 user, I was ready to move on to another traffic program after the lack of updates and support. I installed MyTraffic 6 for my FSX setup last week and have been pleased with the results. Just follow the instructions and installation should be successful. Yes, the models are probably a step below what I experienced with UT2, but the trade seems to be a lesser impact on frame rates. I REALLY enjoy seeing all of the MANY aircraft types, both business and military types. (I even saw a cargo DC9-10 land behind me at KRDU yesterday.) The only issue I am still dealing with is compatibility with my FSDT airport addons. The workaround mentioned in many forums has not worked for me. On the other hand, my other addon airports from Blueprint, ImagineSim, BajaSim, LatinVFR, FlyTampa, and Aerosoft are all working perfectly. I would recommend this product.

MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D

Excellent coverage. Light on FPS (compared to other products). 5 stars for convenience. Installation for P3D v3 can tricky though. I don't know any other AI package that covers so many airlines and new airports. However, models are bad. Night lighting of aircraft is very very bad. Forget about editing the flight plans, and aircraft models. The editor is very difficult to understand. If you don't want to bother too much about AI, this is a great, simple add on.

MYTRAFFIC 6 FSX+FSXSE+P3D

This is a nice product, not good or great but nice. I also had problems with the install on my old rig, but since I built a new rig and went from p3dv3 to 3.2 the install was a lot easier. I followed the directions like last time and it worked. Not complicated but you have to take time to read and go step by step, this time I installed MTX first and then two addons as of to date. I see the new paints for AA and SWA, very nice. Models are not that great still with this product but no one a'i planes really are. I did WOAI it was nice but since p3dv3 the lights are missing. I went with WOAI so I could use A.I flight planner. I wish MTX had a simple flight editor like Just TrafficX did. For now this will do as P3d is always updating and so will this product, only time will tell. Only 3 stars as models are ok and the not so easy to install only because we like the install to do it all for us
