Hey dont think I am stalking you!!! :( (Cheyenne forum...)I have the freeware solution WOAI right now, downside is, in FSX DX10 preview some of the AC dont show textures.I have read somewhere, that Flight1 will bring Ultimate Traffic 2, it looks promising, but dont know when they will launch.http://ultimatetraffic.flight1.net/ut2/Sorry dont wanna step on someones feet, but IMO there is not really a good payware package on the market, WOAI is for free and easy, just the pain of DL all the packages.CheersMcDan

I have MyTrafficX 5.2, and find it to be easy to install and configure. Updates/patches are easily applied through its 'Communicator' utility. You can choose to install either Quality or Framerate Friendly (Less Quality) models, which include aircraft such as the Airbus A380. Flightplans flown by the airlines represented in the package are close to realistic (I've often flown a real-world schedule in FSX and found myself chasing or being followed by the same airline's aircraft in AI) with some random flightplans added to keep traffic buzzing around, and include military aircraft. You do occasionally see the odd model with no texture applied, but these are few and far between.

Agreed, altough ive seen ATC clear many a plane to FL600 (Usually American Eagle ERJS), but other wise MTX is the best payware AI package out there.

I have My Traffic X ProsNice to hear something and see something besides the default aircraftSystem runs smoother than with default aircraftYou can add downloaded aircraft (somehow really have not tried this yet)Adds helicopter trafficConsAircraft are not all that great lookingIts a good add on if you ask me the only thing I did not like about it was the different looks of the AI aircraft, some looked great and some decent and then some looked very shabby (mostly the military flights)

FYI, I tried Add On Converter X from Flightsimtools, and it fixes the problem you mention here.

What you want to get is TrafficX from JustFlight. Make sure to download the service pack 1 also. That is if the contents of the service pack have not been integrated into the release you purchase.1 - Aircfraft Model is Great2 - FRame Rate Friendly3 - And since thier service pack 1, you get good distribution of traffic around world airports.4 - Its ther best out there.5 - Never get freeware stuff, unless you got time to waste rather than fly.

I'd recommend ignoring any commentary about "forgetting freeware stuff" and go try World of AI. My skies are now full (100% sliders) of real world aircraft with no noticeable performance hit at all. Install was painless, and it's free so you've got nothing to lose.Highly recommended.

Disagree: I have looked at WOAI and it is labor intensive...I wanna fly, not screw the pooch manually installing this stuff for hours.I have both MT5.2 and TrafficX and both are good.

I have read somewhere, that Flight1 will bring Ultimate Traffic 2, it looks promising, but dont know when they will launch. Is it me, or is that Jet Blue flight out of San Juan following airways?!
