I've been experimenting a bit with the version 10 AI aircraft system. When using "normal" aircraft as AI, this will on most systems result in a SIGNIFICANT framerate drop! In many cases the sim gets useless if you have more than a couple/few AI aircraft. So I started to play around a bit with these aircraft. Also got a few hints from Austin how their flight logic is.
- First I removed the obvious, panels, sounds, instruments, since we of course don't need those.
- Second, I started removing and replacing textures. Compressing some, deleting others.
- Third I started removing excess 3D. Little details we can live without since we most of the time will observe these aircraft from some distance.
- Forth, and maybe most important, I started optimizing the flightmodel. There is tons of stuff that can be done to reduce the number of flightmodel calculations X-Plane does. Basically I'm simplifying it.
- Fifth, The "AI-pilot" does some stupid things and doesn't fly by the book. It looks for certain parameters in the file and draws conclusions from that how to fly. So by altering those a bitone can make the aircraft behave a bit better.

You should see a SIGNIFICANT performance increase and most of you should be able to fly with at least 10 of these. File contains 10 B747-400's:
- Air France
- Ar New Zealand
- British Airways
- Japan Airlines
- KLM
- Lufthansa
- Qantas
- Singapore
- Thai
- United

Special thanks to all designers and repainters that have contributed at XPFW over the years. To many to mention, but you will find their names and original livery's and aircraft in the XPFW registry's. They all deserve credit for this and I hope this will result in these aircraft will get an extended life.

More types will follow.

INSTRUCTIONS

Basically you treat these aircraft as you would any other aircraft:
- Unzip the file (if problems use Stuffit Expander - free)
- Place the folder containing the AI aircraft anywhere you like inside the "Aircraft" folder
- Start the v10 sim
- Goto Aircraft/Aircraft & Situations
- Click on the tab "Other aircraft"
- Add/replace the default aircraft with these - as many as you like...
- Done
