You hit the nail on the head there.

I've had an aircraft go around because he said there was an aircraft on the
runway. It turned out to be something generated on his system but I couldn't
get through to him that neither I or other aircraft on IVAO could possibly
see it. He wasn't able to understand why I gave him landing clearance with
an aircraft already on the runway and suggested there was something wrong
with my connection because I hadn't spotted it. <g>

Hi Kevin,

I'm not sure which version of Phil's Birmingham scenery you are using. 
If it's FSX, then the AI can still be kept in operation, when on line. 
In FSX, and the most recent version of IVAP, AI is automatically 
disabled by the IVAO software, when you connect to a server. If you want 
to see it, then just go to Options Scenery Traffic and put the sliders 
where you want them. I normally do this, whilst minimising the framerate 
hit by leaving the GA slider at zero.

Like you, I find it disheartening to arrive at a deserted airfield. I 
know the controllers frown on the principle of running AI but I would 
challenge anyone to spot I'm using it, as I never let it's presence 
interfere with the action of my own aircraft. If a confliction seems 
likey then it takes about 5 seconds to switch off the AI. Sometimes I 
don't feel the need to use it because I can see decent IVAO traffic 
volumes at departure and / or arrival fields.

If you are indeed running FSX, then FSC will now display all other IVAO 
traffic, within about 100 miles.
