VoxATC and Ultimate Traffic Live

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if once a UTL bridge becomes available for Vox, which program would be providing the traffic? Will Vox create it's own traffic and only use the UTL  models?

If it works the same as it did in UT2, the bridge will allow the VOXATC Indexer to convert the UTL traffic database to the VOXATC traffic file format. VOXATC will use the UTL models and paints and it will still control the AI traffic.  But you never know until the bridge is actually released.

That would be perfect. Would probably lose the "live aspect" but perhaps we could still see a live map from the UTL interface.

Revisiting this topic now that six months have gone by and I've yet to use the latest VOXATC program that I bought. After reading a bit more on how VOX worked with UT2 and the bridge, I'm not sure that I want to use it in that manner anyway. 

I'm using UTL and I don't want to lose my traffic board, the "live" aspect or the ability to set GA and airline traffic independently so having VOX take control of the traffic is a non starter. However, I'm wondering, if I set VOX traffic to 0, and UTL at distributions I prefer, will VOX be able to "see" the UTL traffic (not control it) and alert me of it's presence? P3D ATC should keep UTL AI away from me and would give me ATC chatter.

so just to clarify, UT live does work with VOX 7.41 in P3D V4 ? or is something else needed to make it work.

Im sort of on the fence about buying UT Live as the AI from VOX tends to kill my performance significantly flying the PMDG 737 and 777

 

thanks in advance

Nope and no word from the dev.  Took his ver 4 money and disappeared.  Really a shame because he admitted on his website that a new version of the bridge was going to be made but failed to deliver.   ProATCx and Pilot2Atc are the goto apps at this stage.

Yes - Sadly for how much I love Vox I get much better performance with UT Live traffic so I've switched back to Pilot2ATC for now.

Months later and still nothing from the dev, such a shame.

What would one lose by moving to Pilot2ATC?  I really hate the fact that the developer is so unresponsive to his customers.

I sent an email to Carol but you might contact rcsimulations.co.uk.. I bought mine from them and if Tegwyn is not going to maintain some type of contact with his customers through forum or somewhere...i won't call it the "f" word but it smacks of unfair trade practices....lol.........we've all been burnt but it is a great program. The developer of Pilot2ATC is the best!!!

Honestly, only the traffic injection/control that vox provides.  Vox is the only atc software that completely controls the traffic it injects.  Not to mention I loved the 'progressive taxi' lights that vox provides.  P2A is excellent, but lacks controlling the ai traffic around you, as well as the taxi lights (although I think I remember hearing its on the roadmap at some point).  The dev is equally on top of all feedback and bugs.  I have both and switch back and forth depending on my mood.  Most times I stick with Pilot2ATC but thats just me.

Yeah, the progressive lights are so much nicer than the default yellow arrows.  I keep using this as it is the only one that combines the major features that I want.  The fact that the developer ignores his customers is very annoying.  Heck, just for fun, I used the default ATC yesterday!
