From what I can determine from taking a quick look, the models (cargoA.mdl and VEH_water_cargoC_sm.mdl) are native FSX models. So in theory they shouldn't need conversion. But that's just a theory!

I was able to set up a test with both vessels and everything was normal for me.  Here is a link to the
vessels that I used:

Replace your My_CargoA and My_CargoC and let me know the results.

My problems have been solved, now I see all these (formerly missing) ships, thank you very much!

I compared your above provided file with that one from "RTMM AI Shipping Project V2.0":
Result:
In
- \MY_CargoA
- \MY_CargoC
following files are missing in folder \model:
- cargoA.mdl
-VEH_water_cargoC_sm.mdl

The provided download  from here
http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/shipping/index.php
should get a correction.

Dieter,

The question here is whether P3Dv4 caused something to not work right.   I don't have P3Dv4 so will need to ask a few questions.  Did you do the install in auto or manual fashion?  Does your P3Dv4 SimObjects\Boats have the following folders?

cargoA
VEH_water_cargoC_sm

Rod,
I did a manual install of "RTMM AI Shipping Project V2.0" into a "FSX fake" folder and I got following results:
- \RTMMAISP ADEX (2 files)
- \RTMMAISP Boats (32 folders)
- \RTMMAISP Effects (33 files)
- \RTMMAISPmarinetrafficTracks (369 files)
- manual_install_readme.txt

There are no folders \cargoA   or  \VEH_water_cargoC_sm

In \RTMMAISP Boats are amongst others these 2 folders:
\MY_CargoA
\MY_CargoC

in which were missing in folder \model:
\MY_CargoA  => missing  cargoA.mdl
\MY_CargoC  => missingVEH_water_cargoC_sm.mdl

These ones were now provided with Dex' download from above.

Hi Dieter,

Thanks for that information.   Sorry if I wasn't clear on my other question:

Does your P3Dv4 SimObjects\Boats (I am talking about your installed P3Dv4 folder) have the following folders?

cargoA
VEH_water_cargoC_sm

Oh, well, sorry, I misunderstood.

Yes, my original P3Dv4 installation has these two folders in  \SimObjects\Boats.

It might be interesting how I installed my ship traffic:
P3Dv4 allows registering folders outside the main folder "Prepar3D v4". This way a better a better overview is given.
So all of my ships traffic (RTMM and the Global Ship Traffic by Henrick Nielsen is in an  "Addon Ships" folder,
separated by name:
- RTMM AI Shipping
- Global AI Shipping
These folders contain all necessary subfolders like \effect, \sound, \Global AI Traffic (the traffic files) and \SimObjects\Boats and so on.
Everything is registered as suggested by Lockheed Martin and works perfectly.
This way no original effects, sound and whatever is overwritten.

Hi Dieter,

Ok, thanks and interesting feature of v4.   I have one more questions.   Can you verify that the following two folders (part of the shipping package) do contain their models which happen to be the same models as the ones you were missing in MY_CargoC and MY_CargoA and would have been loaded at the same time during the manual installation. 

The folders to check are:

AI_Vessel_CargoA_FSX

AI_Vessel_CargoC_FSX

Also, watch you email for a message from me on a different subject.

Thanks.

Rod

I confirm that these two mentioned folders are part of the manual installation.
They contain a simple model.cfg

[models]
normal=cargoA

[models]
normal=VEH_water_cargoC_sm

Attched a screenshot which ship folders I got after manual installation.

Hi Dieter,

Will follow up with you via email as this is a P3Dv4 issue that I will need to work through with you to determine how to avoid issue for some future P3Dv4 users who change folder hierarchy.
