Yet another one of a series of AI aircraft packs the we at XPFW made from our fleet of airliners. These AI aircraft are designed to give as little FPS loss as possible while at the same time look and perform realistically. They only work in v10!

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 certain parameters one can make the aircraft behave more realistic on taxi, takeoff, approach and landing.

You should see a SIGNIFICANT performance increase and most of you should be able to fly with at least 10 of these. File contains 10 717's in different livery's:

- AA/TWA
- AeBal
- Air Tran
- Bangkok Air
- Boeing House
- Germanwings
- Hawaiian
- JetStar
- Midwest
- Qantas

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.
- 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

The problem goes for XPFW 767, 717, 747, 737 classic, and a319 aswell.

I can download it, but when I try to extract or copy the contents in the folder to the x plane 10 aircraft folder, it says "the archive format is either unknown or damaged". Then I need to either close or break operation to the folder. I opened the folder with "winrar". So please help me with this.
