Is there an actual website for this product? Not a forum, review or Facebook page. Google and Bing get nothing but noise.

Okay this is ridiculous. 30 minutes and I can't find where to purchase/preview/whatever. Flight1 needs to learn about SEO.

They've released the updated version to the current customers only which is why you can't see it and the link is in the support forum. Also, I just downloaded, installed it and the application will not fire up. Stay away. 

Ps. I really hope that one day this developer will get his s**t together. This is what you get for having two people on your test team, my god.

Downloaded and installed just fine for me. All appears to be working fine on my initial first start up of the sim. Lots of traffic.

There's nothing more annoying or time wasting in this hobby than the ludicrous and complex way Flight 1 goes about its business. What may have been acceptable business practice a decade ago is simply outdated now. They badly need to introduce a system whereby one account does everything, a la Orbx.

For the record you have to be a member of that customer forum to make the purchase. To be fair there is a good discount for existing customers.

Did you install it outside of the Program Files directory by any chance? There are some other people having the same issue as me.

Yes, I keep all my simulator files on a separate SSD.  In this case " P:\Addons for P3D\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic Live "

I did install it with admin rights (right click and Run as Administrator).

Just tried it and still the same. They released it over two hours ago and the developer already went fishing as I'm not getting any help. I'm going to go and grab a beer before I lose my cool this evening. :)

While you're at it, ask them what happened to their GTN 750 update for V4.:wink:

Totally agree, but with products like GTN 750 being pretty unique, it's difficult to always do that.

Yes, that's becoming an issue now isn't it. I get the feeling they like to hold everyone to ransom, knowing how crucial that piece of kit is with so many aircraft. And you can bet we're going to get charged too, which isn't good considering I've already paid for two darned versions already.

To be honest, if RXP wasn't also developing a version of the GTN 750 for P3d V4, I wonder how long it would take for the Flight1 version to be released. A little competition is a good thing in this case.

I'd somehow missed that. Hmmm. I almost feel like buying onto that to kick Flight 1 into touch, but that's probably more money than I'd like to spend to make a point.

I already have the RXP version for XP11, so I'm hoping for a slightly discounted priced for the P3d V4 version.

Starting to get tired of beta testing apps that I have purchased. I know this is pre release, but how on earth did this latest version get out the door. Too many of us having the same error for it to be just a freak thing.

I agree with comments above about Flight 1.

LOL, are we really going to give F1 a hard time over the GTN?

Especially in comparison to the awful support that RXP provided in the last few years? They completely disappeared off the face of the earth for a while and continued to keep selling the GNS line and let forum members provide the support. I know that they are 'back' now, but good lord.

As for the GTN line, Its been what, 3 weeks since v4 launched? They have already stated that there is a lot to do to make it 64 bit ready.

Years ago when Ultimate Traffic first came out I had all kinds of problems with it. Went on the forum. Needed help. Expressed my displeasure. Next thing I know I get a threat to boot me off the forum. Received a refund and never went back for years. Just recently I went back. to make some purchases P3D GNS 750 for example. But I agree. Their whole system is archaic.

Ok, this could easily be going off topic. Stay cool everyone.

However, thanks for all the comments, I'm staying away from this addon for now. The most important thing for me when purchasing a product is the customer service. Seems like this one need to be updated!

Thank you,

There's absolutely nothing wrong with UTLive.  I've been using it in v3.4 since they released the official beta months ago, and I've never had any problems.  It looks like the installer for the update to v4 is missing some files, and it will be available once the problem is fixed.  Meanwhile, existing users can inject it into their v4 by pointing the paths in the install menu in the right direction.  Piece of cake.  To get the link, yes, you need to be a registered user and have a registered account on the forum.  Deal with it, it's a beta product. 

I've tried MyTraffic and Live Traffic, and UTLive has the best models, best dynamics and most fluidity out of them all.  And, I'm convinced that they inject schedule data in from some live source because I always see planes at gates and departing according to schedules that closely-resemble flightaware.  I love this addon, and I wouldn't think twice about recommending it to anyone.

Does UT Live have all of the latest liveries and airlines. I can remember UT2 was missing some airlines, especially in Europe. Any screenshots?

There is a mish-mosh of old and new liveries.  For example, American Airlines and Delta are all new but United is mixed...Same for other airlines. I don't know how up to date they are on some of the newer airlines in Europe, but I know they have a lot of Asian ones.  However, it's really easy to change assignments and add different models if you like, they have a good interface for that kind of stuff.  I don't have any screenshots atm but I can probably cobble some together after work tomorrow.  Check out YouTube for some p3d videos, lots of people have UTLive in their clips.

It's not even beta, which still doesn't excuse the fact that hosed installer was released for general download.

So, anyone can shed some light as to how to get this update? I purchased the product but (as some frustrated buyers have mentioned), I cannot get a link from my F1 account info and have not been notified either. Just wondering if anything new has come about.
