• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

MSFS Global AI Ship Traffic FSX, P3D and MSFS2020

Perhaps this, very soon ... without facking :cool: using real effects from MSFS for a Calypso driveable.
For AI version, I am working on the subject.

After an afternoon using VisualEffectEditor, I have succed to make a wake and to had it to my Calypso AI:

Excellent news :D I will be far from MSFS the next 9 days except my friends GIMP and Blender working on converting files... it is good to fall asleep on.... but once I am back I will join you experimenting.
Today, I wil try to modify yours 4 boats and add a wake on each one. I think to send you the result before this week-end.
Here is a brand new and very interesting ferry for the wishlist. It starts serving on it's route between Vaasa in Finland and Umeå in Sweden on 28th of August.

I like when the wishes comes with documentation included :D Anyway... Now first we ened to finish our quick fix for MSFS... still two weeks work despite sending around 600 ships in beta test today.... Next up we need to get the wakes and other effects included.... then, and only if Asobo does not have more surprises hidden in the sleeve, we will restart increasing the fleet....

But here a few shots from the beta...




It seems like a) the problems with stutters after SU5 are gone b) the problem with texture mix up is gone c) the ships generally shows up were they are intended to show up meaning that the sim feels better with the new models than the mdl files....
With a lot of help from Didier @Lagaffe

And the first Royal Navy model to be converted... HMS Duncan

And further ahead of her, HMS Dragon with the hangar closed

Beta test has gone well, no major issues have been found so we will launch the first batch of around 650-700 ships late Saturday; no wakes included in the first place but at least the ships will be back without stuttering, texture mix-ups and other nasty issues introduced after SU5

Some boats with way more details than many expensive aircraft models - your work is outstanding. A big compliment to all involved! 👍
V2.10 of the Global AI Ship Traffic was uploaded to Flightsim.to last night. We are still "Just" with quick fix models, but now there is more diversity as we now rounded 1050 models. Next up today will be a separate launch for the Great Lakes.

A few of Didier's model are included with wakes, but effects are first for next version.


And one of my own cruise ships Carnival Paradise
Thanks Enzzo, but my library maded for this trafic has yet various wakes, a chimney smoke (# 575 screen 4) and fire effects also for future usages.
