Dynamic Altis Airports

by

Description:
Realistic fixed wing ground and air traffic for Altis.

All six (6) Altis airports now have working AI traffic with realistic flight plans, ground service, embellished engine sounds (ie. spool-up, taxi, departure), taxi queues and taxi priority, hold-short at runway, departure, landing, and go-around.


Features:
  • Core Function: Dynamic aircraft activity at each Altis airport
  • At Mission Start: Empty aircraft placed at spawnpoints are assigned AI pilots
  • Ground Support: Yes
  • Flight Plan (VFR): Yes, 2 preset flight plans in alpha version
  • ATC: No, but maybe in future versions
  • Engine Start Sound: Embellished depending upon aircraft type
  • Engine Taxi Sound: Embellished depending upon aircraft type
  • Engine Departure Sound: Embellished depending upon aircraft type
  • AI Taxi Priority: Yes, currently first spawn, first depart
  • AI Taxi for Departure: Yes, taxi from all hangars and ramps
  • Hold on Taxiway: Yes, primary taxiway has priority
  • Taxiing Aircraft Cue: No need to address, not a problem
  • Hold short at Runway: Yes
  • Departure Direction: No, only one direction per airport
  • Departure: Yes, departure from all 6 Altis airports
  • Approach for Landing: Yes
  • Visual Landing Aids: Added "ALS" lights
  • Go Around: Yes
  • Landing: landing at all 6 Altis airports
  • Recovery to Ramp: Not in Alpha Version


  • Installation:
    Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
    32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
    64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
    After extraction it should look like this:
    Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

    You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
    mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
    mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
    mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

    When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
    You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

    You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
    For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
    -mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

    Note:
    You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


    And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

    When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.


    Usage / Configure:
    If you want to be able to load boxes/crates into aircraft, download the following mod:

    Then, place the IgiLoad script folder into your root Arma 3 folder...
    Make sure that the folder name is spelled: "IgiLoad"

    Please refer to the included readme for detailed info how to use and configure this!
