Product Description

Traffic X is the latest generation of the hugely popular Traffic series of AI traffic programs from Just Flight, and is the new benchmark for Artificial Intelligence traffic expansions. It includes custom features designed to take maximum advantage of the new capabilities available in Flight Simulator X and employs completely reworked and updated aircraft for FSX with new and more detailed high-quality airline liveries. Traffic X includes 84 individual, different aircraft models with numerous airline liveries and paint schemes – giving a total of more than 1,600 individual aircraft! Featured aircraft include commercial airliners, regional jets and turboprops, business aircraft, GA aircraft, helicopters and - for the first time in the Traffic series - military aircraft. There are, of course, a host of other new features - the new Traffic Control Centre gives you an easy way to comprehensively customize and expand your AI traffic; Chrono Traffic means every aircraft and flight can now be set for a certain period of years; the all-new Follow-me car and Pushback truck let you explore the airport from the ground; all-new Traffic Radar lets you view traffic information in three different modes about each AI aircraft in range; appropriate aircraft take advantage of the advanced animations in FSX to operate with airport service vehicles, and Spotty the aircraft Spotter has got an even more impressive bag of tricks!

What do you get? This DVD-ROM installs into your FSX Simobjects Folder. You get 97, go ahead count em', 97 folders of AI Aircraft, each with up to 60 different liveries (or paint jobs) of various airlines around the world. Passenger jets, Commuter Turboprops, Cargo Carriers and even some Military Stuff. The DVD also comes with FSX Service Pack 2 (SP2), in case you don't have it already. SP2 is required prior to installation. When you run the Setup program, it will recognize if you do not have SP2, and prompt you to cancel the install of the Traffic Expansion Addon. When you do this, SP2 will install automatically. Run Setup Program again to install the Traffic Expansion Addon.

Does it work? Yes. Does it work properly? No! By this I mean the aircraft.cfg (aircraft configuration) files for each of the 97 folders of new AI aircraft have serious deficiencies. The aircraft.cfg files in each folder are plain ordinary text files that you can open with wordpad or whatever. They instruct FSX how to build and paint the planes that you see in the Flight Simulator Environment. It starts with a name. Each variation of each plane requires a unique name. Then there is the model, which is basically a plain gray 3D shape of an airplane. The texture files, which are .bmp files (also known as paintjobs) get applied to the model to give it the colors and definition of an airline (American, Air India etc). Then there's the atc statements, and this is where the problems are found. Many of the "atc_airline=xxx" [where xxx is the callsign of an airline] statements have incorrect callsigns. Some are one word and should be two. Some are two words and should be one. Some are just plain misspelled, or wrong altogether. American Airlines for example.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Flight - Trafic X - Great Add-on - But! February 8, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you read the reviews your are probably wondering Why people love this FSX Add-on or hate it. I bought this over 6 months ago and it definitly brings FSX alive, however, you must own a new machine with a upgraded Video Card, not a $100.00 upgrade but a $199.00 card at least a 8800Gt Nvidia or Better, this program uses alot of resources, and if you just have a over the counter store bought comupter you will be disappointed however, get the processer upgrade at least a Dual Core e8400 CPU and a 8800gt nvidia or better card. If you have the machice to run this add-on then its a great add-on if you don't well look for another like mytrafficx.

Hope this helps...

John.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad but...... August 29, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Just a word of warning. This is a great game. But only if you plan on never removing it. Had it installed and loved it. But my frame rates dropped comming in for landings in Atlanta. I decided to remove it because that is where i usually alwyas fly into and out of. Once removed it took ALL other AI aircraft out of the game. Even tried to restore to the point before I installed it,but no luck. Ended up having to reformat my PC and put a fresh install of FSX to get them back. So like i said,a great expansion if you want it installed permanatley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addon August 6, 2010
By JZ
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Brings an entirely new degree of realism to the simulator. After installing this you'll see countless real-world liveries, and being able to tweak the amount of AI traffic present is fantastic. You no longer feel like you're mostly alone at every airport, with only the same 3-4 liveries around. The only problem I see is with American Airlines, which is shown as "Merican" in the game. Obviously AA didn't want their name to be used, or they wanted too much money to give their permission...too bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Traffic x Brilliant April 10, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes this is an amazing game, however if you think that the skies will be littered with the lowcost carriers such as easyjet and ryanair you have the wrong game, Luton and gatwick are hubs for easyjet but there are about 5 aircraft total in both airports but there are plenty of first choice and thomsons about. Also if you don't have a good computer you will struggle, this game takes up 780KB!!! and it really lowed my laptop down and i had to bring down the settings.

But it isnt all bad this game is one more step to being realistic.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I was dissapointed by only reciving just a disk, no booklet to explain how to install. I went to the publishers website and forums to find a way to install into windows 7 64 bit. I was able to do so. Once the product is installed you will have to go thru the painstaking task of making sure all the airline call signs are assigned to the correct airline. That is the bad. The good is that the AI models look very good. Better then WOAI. There are more airlines then you can think of. You also now can have general Aircraft and military aircraft in the mix. This is a descent product for the novice FSX and FS9 user, but if you are a beginer you will be discouraged by the product. I give this product only 3 stars.
