PSXseeconTraffic (fly with live traffic!)
PSXseeconTraffic is an add-on for the Aerowinx PSX and any user aircraft in Prepar3D v2.5, v3 and v4 and in FSX SP2.
Flying with live traffic gives you an awsome immersion.
You can position your aircraft in the queue for landing or departure at your favourite airport and really see all these familiar airlines and aircraft around you. The traffic information at the PSX Navigational Displays (TCAS) or NDs in your user aircraft, is making the flight experience much more real.
In contrast to AI programs there are
needed or information about delays or about runways/taxiways in use.
Everything goes as in real live, automatically!
this is really live !
All live aircraft within 100 nm laterally can be shown in your Simulator, and it can park AI aircraft at your origin and destination airports.
PSXseeconTraffic injects aircraft in your Flight Simulator as real as it gets, depending on how many different types of AI aircraft you have installed. It is not dependent on a particular AI set, it works with all AI ircraft
PSXseeconTRaffic makes the AI traffic move smoothly. It calculates a position for each AI aircraft approximately 32 times per second. It also takes care of setting the lights, flaps, spoilers and landing gear.
It is light on frames, even with hundreds of AI aircraft, while all aircraft calculations take place outside your FlightSimulator.
Real-life traffic information is provided by another program (not from me) called RealTraffic
The data from RealTraffic is based on transponder data of aircraft. When airborne this gives very good results, on the ground it depends on airport policy. At some airports pilots must have their transponder on, while on other airports they have to switch off their transponder after landing. At those airports there wil be not much taxiing traffic to see. But on the other airports you may follow the aircraft after landing taxiing to the gate or from the gate to the take-off runway.
Download a Windows version of RealTraffic. The costs are low, or use the option to run in demo mode for 10 minutes (full version) to get the idea.
The latest package with a 32 bit version for FSX SP2, Prepar3D v2.5, v3 and v4, and a 64 bit version for Prepar3D v4, released July 18, 2017, for Windows 10 (only), is available here:
Note that you can run PSXseeconTraffic networked! So you can run it at a Windows 10 laptop while your FlightSimulator is still at a Windows 7 machine.
