I also still have the BVA model matching .vmr in the custom rule sets  (as well as the FLAi .vmr). Should this now be deleted?
Hi Bill -- try deleting the BVAModelMatching.vmr file. You don't need both. That will likely resolve the vPilot error messages you mentioned. If it doesn't, let me know. In theory, it would also be wise to delete all of the BVA models themselves. You will probably find them in your SimObjects\Airplanes folder. However, that's a bit of a process, and you don't want to accidentally delete a real model. So, maybe try removing the BVAModelMatching.vmr file first, and see whether that resolves the issue.

If it doesn't, feel free to post back here and we can try to walk through removing the old BVA Model Matching models, which are now obsolete (all are already in FLAi).

just downloaded and installed this into P3dv4 Dynamic Lighting. Every time i load the sim i get "multiple aircraft with the same title name" and have to click ok though the thousand's of messages before i can get into P3D. I've installed FLAi just as described in the install me and added the appropriate vmr file to vpilot. any suggestions?

Sounds like there is some duplication. Did you have the old BVA Model Matching installed prior to FLAi?

I'm sure there are a lot of duplicates. Can you find the name of one, and then try to see where it's duplicated? For example, if the duplicate is an American Boeing 737, you'll need to figure out where in your simulator's aircraft library the American Boeing 737 is. There likely will be two separate folders in two separate directories but that have the same contents, and you'll have to remove one of them.

Hello,

I've just downloaded the package and I quickly connected at Frankfurt just to check if everything was ok. There was plenty of traffic so I managed to see that most of models work correctly and they're pretty nice, however all the A321s were showing in the default white livery. What's wrong?

FYI I'm using FSX Steam edition

Regards

Giorgio

Hi Giorgio, it's very strange that only one aircraft wouldn't work, assuming everything has been installed properly. I'm wondering if it's possible that there were a number of users who hadn't used a proper callsign/typecode combination.

Could you test it again in a different area and see whether you have the same result with the A321? If so, please check the actual user's flight plan / information and let us know which airline the user was flying, and what the type code displays as.

It's also possible that those guys were signed on as A321s for an airline that doesn't really have A321s.  Of course, this is perfectly okay in VATSIM, but, FLAi would not have an appropriate livery to slap on it.

If you go into vPilot and type ".aircraft" it will display a list of nearby planes and what they're matched as.  If you screenshot that and post it, that might help the developers &/or community members (and other general know-it-alls like myself, haha) determine what happened.

Thanks for a super addition to our enjoyment of simming.

When FLAI updates via the latest OPS Centre does it add any livery additions to a model's aircraft.cfg or overwrite the existing one with a new one?
The reason I ask is that I use several different ai sounds, rather than stock, for individual types and will have to edit each model's soundai folder and also add soundai= to the General Section in the aircraft cfg.

Hi Norm,

The FLAi OPS Center does not modify any user files. It only downloads FLAi files (including aircraft.cfg files) into their respective folders. However, it does overwrite FLAi create files.

Is it possible that you've edited some of the FLAi files manually and those got overwritten when you updated to the latest version?

Regards,
Szymon.

OK thanks. I will have edit each aircraft cfg file to include soundai= in the General section and change the path in the soundai.cfg inside the Soundai folder.

No big deal really I just don't like to hear a lawn mower taxying past me  ;D

All these FLAi models are great stuff.  But I fly, with others in the environment, many GA aircraft (those produced by Carenado and A2A) and find that there just are not many GA models in the file.  So when we are flying say a Comanche or a Rockwell 114 we get a PA28-140 or if we are in a Skylane we get a C172.  It would sure heighten the realism if there were some representative models for popular GA planes as well.

I'm getting an error when trying to download the operations center, I already have it installed, but had to reinstall P3DV4... 1. It won't let me uninstall the operations center from my computer it says it's already gone. I try to re-download it from the site and get this error.... Any help?

Is there a "slimmed down" version of FLAI?  Ever since installing it for P3D v.4 it takes forever to get through the initial splash screen, to the screen where you select your aircraft, etc.  Like 10 minutes.  Once it load it works fine, but the loading time is absurdly slow now.

Norman, to echo Szymon's post, we have not had a report with this error in the past. I suspect it would be something specific to your installation. Have you had that error with any other software?
