What is World of AI
World of AI is a project that aims to provide high quality and realistic AI traffic for Microsoft Flight Simulator X (FSX) and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 (FS2004). It consists of a collection of packages that contain AI aircraft models, repaints, flight plans and sound files. These packages are compatible with both FSX and FS9, and are based on real-world airline routes and schedules. World of AI offers over 450 packages, including commercial airlines, cargo airlines, general aviation, military and even airlines that have ceased operation.
How to Download World of AI Packages
To download World of AI packages, you will need two things: the World of AI installer and the World of AI package downloader. The World of AI installer is a software that allows you to install the packages into your simulator. You can download it from here. The World of AI package downloader is a tool that helps you to download the packages from the World of AI website. You can download it from here. The package downloader requires the .NET framework version 4.7.
Once you have downloaded both files, run the package downloader and select the packages you want to download. You can filter the packages by category, country and sim version (FSX or FS9). You can also select all or none of the packages using the buttons at the bottom. Then, choose a folder where you want to save the downloaded packages and click on \"Start Download\". The tool will parse the list of available packages from the World of AI website and download them into your specified folder.
How to Install World of AI Packages
After you have downloaded the packages, you will need to install them into your simulator using the World of AI installer. Run the installer and click on \"Agree\" to accept the terms and conditions. Then, click on \"Browse\" and select one of the downloaded packages (they have a .zip extension). The installer will show you some information about the package, such as its name, version, author and description. You can also preview some screenshots of the package by clicking on \"Screenshots\". Then, click on \"Next\" to proceed.
The installer will ask you to select your simulator (FSX or FS9) and its location. If you have both simulators installed, you can choose which one you want to install the package into. The installer will automatically detect your simulator location if it is in the default path. If not, you will need to browse for it manually. Then, click on \"Next\" to continue.
The installer will then install the package into your simulator. This may take some time depending on the size of the package and your computer speed. You can see the progress bar and some details about what is being installed. When the installation is complete, click on \"Finish\" to exit.
You can repeat this process for each package you want to install. You can also uninstall any package by running the installer again and selecting \"Uninstall\" instead of \"Install\".
