TaskForceFSX  Hi-Def AI Pack 5.0
****************************************************************************************************

IMPORTANT:

(1) If You Have Installed AI Carriers 2 for Flight Simulator X SP1 & Acceleration by  
Lamont Clark second release, 3 november 2007...
DO NOT ACTIVATE THE "Setup" application !!! It is only the aicarriers2   
application. If you have installed AI Carriers 2, you will only need to switch the cfg
and add the new boats, sounds, and effects. (SEE BELOW).

(2) ALL ships needed for this 5.0 pack have been included. YOU MAY HAVE some of
these ships already in your "Boats" Folder. OVERWRITE them with the boats
included (EXCEPT Javier Fernandez's ships CVN 68 & 69) with the ones included i
in this download; for this pack to work properly. I had to re-configure some of them,
to use them in this AI Pack (ship speed, names etc).
I DID NOT CHANGE the FSX default AI Ships!  

(3) KNOWN ISSUES: (by Javier Fernandez)
-Some lights won't show up at night using DX10.
-Some textures might look corrupted in DX10.

THANK YOU to Lamont Clark for the original program. I know you have made many
flight-simmers very happy with this program. Thank you to all the "Artists" that have
made these wonderful ships over the years. Please feel proud they were included in
this AI pack for everyone to enjoy. AI Carriers is probably one of the most popular FSX
applications in the world.

(please review the installation Instructions in it's entirety before contacting us with
installation problems)

Control your AI Ships while flying!
QUESTION: What are AI Ships?
ANSWER: The ships and boats in FSX that you see cruising around on their own.
They appear in FSX to give you a more realistic experience (the number of ships that
appear depends on your traffic settings). They are allowed by the FSX program to be
self controlled, the AI stands for Artificial Intelligence.  Unlike some scenery, these
are actual models, several are used in FSX Missions and include a "Hard Deck" that
allows you to land Aircraft and Helicopters on them.  

QUESTION: Why would I want to control them?
ANSWER: By allowing you to easily choose certain boats or ships to appear, on
your command, and control them, you can land on them at will, at any location (over
water) in FSX.
TaskForceFSX has developed a custom AI Ships Modification Pack!
Taking AI to a new level! This pack modifies the AI Carriers 2 program by Lamont Clark
by compiling boats and ships from...

(1) "CVN68/CVN69 AI Carrier add-on Pack Version 2.0" by Javier Fernandez
(2) Additional AI Boats and Ships from FSX and Acceleration
(3) Actual "drivable" boats and ships from various authors.

WE FEEL THIS WILL GIVE YOU THE MOST CHOICES AND BEST AI GROUPINGS !
-Too many choices on the menu?
Simply delete what you don't like in your;  Programs\AICarriers\aicarriers.cfg file
- Original AI Carriers and CVN68/CVN69 cfg s included
NEVER BE WITHOUT A CARRIER IN FREE FLIGHT OR MULTI-PLAYER AGAIN!

AI Carriers for Flight Simulator X SP1 & Acceleration by Lamont Clark  
(Second Release, November 3, 2007)

This is a small software that allows you to place and control single ships or complete
naval fleets in Flight Simulator X.
Unlike previous software concerning AI ships and carriers, or missions, it doesn't need
complex edit of traffic files or mission files. Just add when you are in free flight, anywhere
you want.
