UT Live

Recommended Posts

I've been trying UTLive on P3D34 for a while and think that it is a viable and similar replacement of UTII.  Please don't cry if you install this and see frames in the 10's (any platform) at SFO.  Best fix is to hit Ctrl+Shift+- to cut the traffic by quite a bit 4 or 5 of those gets you back a substantial boost in FPS.  For this reason I would like a setting to limit the number of planes at any one time regardless of location.

 

Cheers

FSUIPC can do this for you.

Or you can just use the FPS Traffic Limiter inside the application...

That good - I still use MT6 but am considering moving to UT Live.  I didn't know about the traffic limiter in UT Live - thanks!

It has in UT2 - and I'm pretty sure that it's available in UT Live as well... Basically, it sets the lowest FPS for UT2/UT Live to add traffic. When you hit the specified framerate inside the sim, Ultimate Traffic stops adding traffic and/or removes traffic to maintain the FPS limit.

Hope that made sense...

That's a nice feature.  I'm using MT6 right now and am controlling the amount of traffic via FSUIPC.  I'm considering giving UT Live a try but the lack of cargo airlines (worked for FedEx for 28 years and can't imagine not seeing any FedEx planes at KMEM, KIND, etc). and no military A/C is a drawback.  I understand that they can be added on your own.  But, I do enough tweaking instead of flying as it is and don't want to do that with AI.

I actually never noticed the lack of cargo flights in UT2... but now that you mention it, I have never actually seen one. 

Anyway - it's quite easy to add aircrafts, liveries and flightplans to UT, using their PowerPack application.

PowerPack - I'll take a look.  Thanks!

My suggestion is to keep using MT6. It already has what you want and does work in P3Dv4. You seem well aware of the shortcomings of UTLive, so stay with the devil you already know. If UTLive eventually evolves into something useful it will still be there for sale.

I'll probably do just that.  I'm not a fan of staying with an "older" program that appears to not be actively updated any longer.  But, as you note, it is doing what I need it to do for now.

No cargo airlines?? Well that's just silly. UT Live is a payware product. I should not have to fiddle around with payware...I buy payware addons for less hassle not more.

Right - that's pretty much my theory and one of the reasons that I came back to P3D after trying XP11 as it was a challenge to get decent traffic without a lot of work.  MT6 has cargo, passenger, GA and military while UT live is missing military and cargo.  So, I'll stay with MT6 for now.

I still think it's a mistake making their "live" schedules dictate the entire addon. If something isn't part of strict schedules, it gets cut, like cargo. I think most of us just want a well-balanced traffic addon that covers all bases, with nice models that are easy on performance, lots of varied traffic, not having to download a ton of liveries and then just keep as close to the real-life schedules as you can without compromising the rest. Not to mention the name seems to be confusing a lot of people, thinking it's a live representation of real-world traffic.

I have MT6 and had it installed with FSX:SE but uninstalled it for performance issues. As I have switched to P3Dv4 I have been flying without traffic as I do not want to force any add-ons into the sim. Some folks say MT6 works in V4 but I am not going to install it until it is officially v4 ready.

I was thinking about UT Live but I think I will pass.

UT II had daily/weekend scaling factors that are probably still in effect in UT Live.  I was always a UT user even with UT Live in P3D 3.4.  Hanging on for something official for P3D V4.
