PSXseeconTraffic (fly with live traffic!)
PSXseeconTraffic is an add-on for the Aerowinx PSX and any user aircraft in Prepar3D v2.5+ and in FSX SP2 running under Windows 10.
You can run PSXseeconTraffic networked. So you can run it at a Win10 laptop while your FlightSimulator is still at a Win 7 machine.
Have you ever seen an AI aircraft make a Go-Around? Well try this!
Flying with live traffic is a great experience. You can take position 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.
Unless other AI programs there is no need to install flight plans 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 80 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 makes the AI traffic move smoothly. It calculates a position for each AI aircraft 25 times per second. It also takes care of setting the lights, flaps and 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 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.
