Has anyone tried Traffic 3D in v4 (http://secure.simmarket.com/a-constable-traffic-3d-sounds-fsxp3dv1p3dv2.phtml)  ?  I simply can't stand the MT default AI sounds.  They are so overbearing and I've never found a way to lower them.  The second traffic pushes back the roar is just deafening!  Thinking of picking this up if it'll do the trick.

I was beta testing Traffic 3d Sounds in v4 in Ultimate Traffic Live and the 3d sounds worked just fine.  I've not tested it with the default AI, though and haven't tried to install the existing P3D version into v4.   Don't know if the developer has a final version ready for P3dv4, yet, as I've not been in contact for a couple of weeks.  Do you want me to contact him for an update?

Sure!  Very interested in purchasing for the quality of the product, and if it seems itll fix this annoying roaring engine sound from MT, Im all in.

Thanks - I meant the install process for the Traffic 3D sounds in MT6 and P3Dv4.

I don't understand, it's not on sale, why does it go where sales/deals are posted?

I was confused as well.  I only linked so people would know what addon I was referring to.  

 

Aside from that I purchased and installed without issue and the sounds are MUCH better!

OK, I bought it and tried to install it in v4.  The alias files are listed in the main folder OK but the sounds that are supposed to be in the SimObjects/Misc folder aren't there.  Isn't that where they are supposed to go?

Hi--I've contacted the developer and will let you know when I hear back from him.

The developer says his goal is to have a native P3dv4 installer ready at the end of August.

Fantastic, thanks for the feedback vp49p3. Now I wonder if the developer of MyTraffic6 will also do an update for P3D4?

I tried the MT6a guide to get decent AI traffic into P3D4 and it works, but my frame rates suffer terribly, especially at busy airports and I often get a few black aircraft that only pop into full colour a few seconds later. This suggests to me that MT6 is not optimised for P3D4 and may need recompiling or whatever it is that these clever people do to improve things?

The developer was very helpful in getting Traffic 3D working in P3Dv4 with MT6.  But, I wouldn't hope for a major change in MT6 for awhile as the developer has some heart problems.  But, there are some threads here about removing the old FS9 models and adding the [radios] section to get that fixed in MT6.  

I think that the simple models in MT6 are relatively frame rate friendly.  But, I use the traffic limiter in FSUIPC and am quite pleased with the level of traffic and the performance.  UT Live won't work for me without cargo and military traffic included.

OK thanks, I missed the comments about removing older FS9 models etc. I would love to have military traffic included, but my P3D4 crashes with it enabled.

I mainly added MT6 to P3D4 because I got annoyed with the completely devoid Eglin AFB. Will removing FS9 models stop the military traffic file from crashing P3D4?

It may - some of the FS9 models were military.  But, at bases here in NE Florida, I have a lot of military aircraft and I'm not getting crashes.

The FS9 models don't necessarily crash P3d. Some of the animations (engines, gears, flaps, etc.) don't work at all and a purist might be annoyed by this flaw.

So I installed the Traffic 3D sounds (I believe 1st option) which I selected to my sims SimObjects\Misc folder.  Then I had to re-run the installer, I selected the MyTraffic 5.4C, and selected my Mytraffic installation.  This second run updated the AI sounds config file to point to the traffic 3D sounds.  So far so good!

I finally sorted it out as well (user error) and the sounds are very nice!

Fantastic news!

I have it running at the moment and love it, but was wondering if there was any way for Alan to add a volume slider option as an addon, or boost the low frequency sounds (the sounds are still too quiet and biased towards higher frequencies, particularly for the 737 files).
