MyTraffic X 5.4

I'm using it for years, and I don't see a need to change it. It has few options for models, so it is light on FPS if you choose them. Sky is very crowded with pretty amazing number of airlines. It also has military planes and GA.

Worth the price then?

Slight OT maybe but is a traffic addon one of those must-haves? I tried UT2 but demo only let me use it on one airport which i never fly to regularly. Just wouldve loved to try it out on my normal routes/airports which i already got a feel for :)

Btw since MyTraffic got options for models does that mean it can increase frames vs default FSX traffic?

Traffic is only worth it if you really care about having it - if you fly VATSIM >50% of the time like I do/am planning to do then it is not worth buying a payware addon, VATSIM can be set up to replace aircraft by their type from any planes you have installed or. IT CAN use traffic addons such as WOAI, SKAI and all the ones mentioned above.

But like I said unless you really care about having it then it is not particularly worth it - if you just want a couple of airlines then head over to the World of AI site before it closes (There is a torrent on the TPB with all the packages available on there. NOT ILLEGAL).

 

And yes almost all traffic packages benefit frame rate - but high settings will bring your PC to its knees in big airports or scenery like Orbx.

Just switched to My Traffic 2013......Getting used to it. Are they real flights? Or just random planes taking off and landing?

I don't know if its an illegal program but its free and they are update once a month. so you Always have up to date timetables.

they also use 747-8I/F and 787.

The fps are very very good. no problems at all.

they are real flight yes. they update the timetable files a lot so you have Always recent ai traffic with recent timetables.

 

here you have the european site of them.

 

http://gaitraffic.webnode.es/english/

 

there are 3 files. all of them will give a package of 1.7gb

 

they also have a facebook page : http://www.facebook....ficteam?fref=ts

these guys are posting the new timetable files they use in the new version of global ai
