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 custom AI Ships Modification Packs!
Taking AI to a new level! These pack modifies the AI Carriers 2 program by Lamont
Clark by adding boats and ships from Javier Fernandez and other creators.

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.
