I got the legacy FSX Global AI Ship Traffic Mod from Henrik working. Just needed to generate a Layout and Manifest File.
Note to users: Do yourself a favor and use LittleNavMap to see the traffic generated - if the AI type reads “Bailene;” that means it’s a whale - I kept chasing this track for a couple of nautical miles, LNM showed I was right atop it, but nothing was on the surface, until the whale jumped up and down.
I increased Leisure and Commercial Marine Traffic to 25 and 15 from 10, no noticeable fps loss yet. With those settings I easily had thirty plus contacts showing in LNM within a 20NM radius.
You can have a lot of fun with the Caravan simulating a visual surface search, ships aren’t that easy to find, and the wakes aren’t really working in this version.
