Traffic culling

Postby Steve Waite » Thu Nov 03, 2016 7:14 am

Did you know that IF10 does traffic culling? It's always been there but often I see IF10 owners talking about other traffic optimisers when they won't need them with IF10:

In Mission page Ai selection window: "Full traffic optimisation" checkbox is already checked.

In C:\ProgramData\Ideal Flight 10\Config\Config.ini we can set a few variables but not really necessary. Only aircraft are culled since boats will respawn very soon after culling and is a waste of resources.

CullDistance=64000 -> in meters

CullFromCount=199 -> culls ALL Ai beyond count of 199 irrespective of situation - farthest away first, less than 199 are culled intelligently

CullInterval=60 -> seconds

The system knows where the Ai is coming from and going to, and knows the speeds and times. IF10 works out which aircraft you may get to see in the sky if it is likely you cross paths or when you fly over airports. So it will leave some aircraft in other airports since you are likely to cross paths later.

Use the SDK TrafficToolbox.dll to see Ai aircraft operating, there is an example dll.xml entry in the SDK traffic section - this appears in the ALT menu as Tools.
