Settings - Advanced
The "Advanced" section of the Settings dialog: Logging, Aircraft selection, and UI
Settings are available from X-Plane's menu:
Plugin > LiveTraffic > Settings.... In the "Advanced" section you can tweak some rather internal parameters of LiveTraffic, which you should definitely understand before changing.
Settings > Advanced > Logging
Settings > Advanced > Aircraft Selection
LiveTraffic can produce contrails for jet aircraft. Contrail generation does not base on weather but solely on these settings. Keep in mind that contrails, using X-Plane's particle system, have the potential to affect performance, so change with care:
Settings > Advanced > Contrails
Settings > Advanced > Miscellaneous
Settings > Advanced > Export
These settings control temporary (read: not saved to the configuration file) export of all received tracking data into a file named
<X-Plane>/Output/LTExportFD - <timestamp>.csv. This export file can be used for analysis or for feeding back into LiveTraffic.
If you want to make sense of the data in the export file, then you can insert the following header line in front of the export file and open it in your favorite spreadsheet application:
For AITFC format:
RTTFC,hexid, lat, lon, baro_alt, baro_rate, gnd, track, gsp, cs_icao, ac_type, ac_tailno, from_iata, to_iata, timestamp, source, cs_iata, msg_type, alt_geom, IAS, TAS, Mach, track_rate, roll, mag_heading, true_heading, geom_rate, emergency, category, nav_qnh, nav_altitude_mcp, nav_altitude_fms, nav_heading, nav_modes, seen, rssi, winddir, windspd, OAT, TAT, isICAOhex,augmentation_status,authentication
Settings > Advanced > User Interface
The [Reset to Defaults...] button allows you, after a confirmation prompt, to reset all Advanced Settings to their respective defaults as documented here.
