Installing World of AI into P3D

Hi, this tutorial will cover the process of installing World of AI into P3D.

As this is not supported by the installer the process gets a bit complicated.

 

There are 2 ways of installing World of AI into P3D:

With FSX or FSX:SE installed

Without FSX or FSX:SE installed


 

Installing World of AI into P3D with FSX or FSX:SE installed

Step 1: Install the World of AI models you want

I have also made a tutorial about this, which you can find here.

Step 2: Locate the World of AI SimObjects

You should find these in <fsx main folder>\SimObjects\Airplanes, for me the file path was: G:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes.

Step 3: Copy the World of AI models into P3D

In the SimObjects\Airplanes folder we just located, run a search for WoA, all the World of AI models should show up as results.

You can use CTRL+A and CTRL+C to copy them.

Step 4: Paste them into P3D

P3D has the same file structure as FSX(:SE), this means that they will have to be copied into the same directory but now in the P3D main folder.

So <p3d main folder>\SimObjects\Airplanes, for me the path was: G:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\SimObjects\Airplanes.

Step 5: Locate the World of AI scenery files

You should find these in <fsx main folder>\scenery\World\scenery, for me the file path was: G:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\scenery\World\scenery.

Step 6: Copy the World of AI scenery files into P3D

In the scenery\World\scenery folder we just located, run a search for Traffic_, all the World of AI scenery files should show up as results.

You can use CTRL+A and CTRL+C to copy them.

Step 7: Paste them into P3D

P3D has the same file structure as FSX(:SE), this means that they will have to be copied into the same directory but now in the P3D main folder.

So <p3d main folder>\Scenery\World\scenery, for me the path was: G:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Scenery\World\scenery.

Et voila, that’s it! Enjoy!


 

Installing World of AI into P3D without FSX or FSX:SE installed

This takes a bit longer, and with a bit I mean some hours. You’ll need to manually copy each file into P3D.

Step 1: Download the World of AI models you want

You can use the In the World of AI Downloader part of this tutorial on how to download them, everything beyond that will be different.

Step 2: Download the World of AI installer from http://www.world-of-ai.com/allpackages.php

Step 3: Open the zip file called woains24.zip, with WinRAR or 7-zip

Step 4: Run WOAI Installer.exe

You might get a security warning, just click Run.

Don’t yet close the zip file, as the installer and the files it requires will be removed from the temp folder.

Step 5: Click Next on the bottom right of the installer

Step 6: At Select WOAI Package to install, click the button that has two dots in it

This will open the file browser

world of ai installer packages

Step 7: In the file browser, select all the packages you just downloaded and click Open

You’ll notice that there will only be one package showing up in the text box below Select WOAI Packages to install, this is normal.

Step 8: Check the Extract files for manual installation checkbox

Step 9: Select the output directory

I suggest making a folder for this.

Step 10: If all of that is done, click Next

Step 11: Now read the important notice, just kidding, check the I Agree checkbox and click Extract

There will be a list showing the progress of the installation, like this:

Once it is done, there will be a window confirming the extraction, you can click Exit.

Step 12: Now go to the folder where you decided to extract the files

Step 13: Copy the aircraft folders into the P3D SimObjects\Airplanes folder

To find the aircraft folders, go to the folder of an airline, open the aircraft folder. In there are all the aircraft.

For me the P3D Airplanes folder was in: G:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\SimObjects\Airplanes.

Step 14: Copy the scenery files into the P3D Scenery\World\scenery folder

To find the scenery files, go to the folder of an airline, go to scenery > world > scenery. In there should be the traffic file.

An easy way to copy all the traffic files at once is running a search for Traffic_ in the folder where you made the installer extract the files.

For me the P3D world scenery folder was in: G:\Program Files (x86)\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Scenery\World\scenery.

And yes, you have to do this for each individual airline.

While doing this, you might get a warning that you will be overwriting some files, I always click Overwrite.

Well, that should be it! Enjoy your manual installation of World of AI.

One thought on “Installing World of AI into P3D

  • In the scenery/world/scenery folder their is a file called trafficAircraft.bgl. This is the default P3D AI traffic (World AIrways/Pacifica/etc) that you can backup and delete and get rid of the fictitious airlines.
