WOAI full download: how big is it exactly?

Hi.

Can anyone tell me what is the size of a full WOAI download please?

 

I am currently in a rural area of South Africa where internet usage is an issue and comes at a premium. Therefore I'd like to get the best aircraft-package/download-size ratio. Before committing to clicking "download" I'd need to know approximately how many MB/GB will be downloaded.

 

As I fly globally, I would not want to limit WOAI to European, or American, airlines only but would love to get a comprehensive package.

 

Any help much appreciated, thanks.

im not aware of a full download, where are you seeing it? it would be over a gigabyte in size

 

if you mean the download on vpilot, its a small download. it does not contain the actual aircraft, It only contains the model matching rules for the client to know how to use them. the models you have to download separately. I would only recommend you download the rule sets for the models you actually have, otherwise youll have lots of error messages popping up

I have downloaded all WOAI files. The folder with the zip-files is about 3 gb.

 

Note that if you were thinking about the vPilot WOAI-file it will not work unless you actually have the WOAI AI traffic installed

Peter, thank you. That's what I was looking for, the total size of the WOAI packages. Unfortunately 3GB is too much to download right now... will have to find another package.

 

Thanks for the "note"... yes, I did read the docomeentation

 

Perhaps is there any other advise as to what package would provide a comprehensive model set for less than 3GB?

If you are willing to pay for it, Ultimate Traffic 2 is pretty nice. It is a boxed product meaning that they will ship you the DVD and you don't have to worry about bandwidth. Aerosoft has a 15% off sale right now...

 

UT 2 is useless, I was amazed at the amount of airlines missing in a 2013 release.

 

WoAI is the most comprehensive AI traffic package and it's free.

On the other hand.

If you normally just fly in certain areas (Like ZA) there is no need to download the entire WOIA package just the ones that you would meet on your way. Not that big a chance to run in to a Norwegian or AirAsia flight while taxing in Jo'borg.

You're quite right Peter... Norshuttle wouldn't appear in Joburg But I do fly around... Imagine the next CTP or worldflight with only ZA airlines... not good... I might have to download the 3GB of WOAI and take a big chunk of the farm's monthly internet allowance !

One by one.

 

Actually I just re-downloaded it yesterday as I had some duplicates so I am just about to du a fresh install.

The active airlines are "only" 1,5 gb. Add the that cargo, GA and airlines no longer operating.

 

I just read yesterday that they are looking for beta-testers for a new installer. I really-really hope that a new installer will make it easier to keep track on which packages are installed on the system and in-program-links to new airlines.
