Possible to use JF Traffic Global for aircraft models?

Hi Len,

I have  the same question about model matching Traffic Global aircraft with VPilot and P3D v4.5.  I have been around the web but can't seem to find an answer- not even on JustFlight's website.  Would love to try the program, but not if it won't work with V-Pilot/Vatsim.

Any out there who has an answer... ?

 But I already paid for JF TrafficGlobal and not looking for any freeware. There is a way. I just need to get the model matching file.

Some of the JFTG models may be identified by vPilot automatically. Have you installed it? If so, go into the advanced model matching settings in vPilot and it'll show you how many of the models are identified.

If there are many models that are not identified, you can create your own VMR file to tell vPilot how to identify them.

"Identified" means that vPilot was able to determine, by scanning the model's aircraft.cfg file, which aircraft type code and airline code each model represents.

 Yes;

 It shows there. So, that`s all right?! I thought JFTG need to have some kind of VMR file. I just don`t know how to work with VMR file.

As I said before, it depends on if the models are marked as "identified" or not. Any model that is identified will be used for model matching. Any models that are not identified will not be used for model matching unless you supply a VMR file that tells vPilot how to use the model for model matching. VMR file syntax is described in the vPilot documentation.

I just looked through the JFTG models that were not identified, and it looks like most of them are unpainted liveries (like paintkit liveries) or they are just generic white paints. So they wouldn't be useful for model matching anyway.

So, in short, you're all set ... just install JFTG and vPilot will use it automatically.

Much Appreciate. One thing is that we have so many VA that would be impossible for a model match.

But it is ok.

Best Regards,

If you're talking about fictional VAs, then there's not much that can be done about that. They can make custom models and share them with others, but generally it's only their members that will take the time to load their models and the necessary VMR file(s).

If you're talking about VAs that simulate real-world airlines, then JFTG will work fine.

 Yeah, I know! But also people have to make the right aircraft model assign in Vpilot, XPilot and others, to pickup the right AI Aircraft in the sim.

 Thanks

Do you mean they need to choose the right aircraft type code when connecting? Then yes, that's obviously very important, no matter what. The actual model that the user is flying in the sim is irrelevant, though.
