UT2 Live updated!

Before we all get too excited, we should clarify that this is still a pre-release version, and UTL has had a fairly slow and difficult gestation so far. Once a broad range of customers have installed and tested it, we'll know if these problems are actually fixed.

Having said this, I'm a natural optimist and - despite my last UTL beta install being a complete disaster - I'm mid-way through the install process for UltimateTrafficLive30 right now... :)

What are the upgrade instructions? A reinstall over top?

If I open my client, it still says "latest beta version available 1.0.0.23"

Uninstall and Install the new one, ignore that message we the beta team told the developer this problem but it was too late as he already made the new version public by the time he read our email.

That will be obviously corrected in a couple of weeks.

Simbol

My main reason for loving this news is the non-disappearing aircraft. Am installing right now. Here's hoping it comes as advertised.

 Kind of an odd point as it's so minuscule. They've been working on fixing snags and bugs on the actual program. If you don't want to see those airlines anymore, it only takes a few clicks and they are gone.

It was a joke Dave.  Did they update any schedules?

Make sure to turn off Controlled Folder Access (CFA) in the latest Win 10 release before installing..  After I installed UTLIVE thought I was running FSX SE.  I uninstalled Steam and reinstalled UTLive and now P3D4 shows correctly in UTLIVE.

Turn CFA back on after the install.  BTW CFA is an anti-Ransomware feature in WIN 10 so your important files can't be encrypted.

Cheers

hello all

could someone check if the plane display on UTL maps at the same date and hour match with what you can see during your flight?

plenty of planes on the utl maps over saudi arabia, and only 3 planes at the same place and time in the sim, ckeck with AS16 map and moving map from patcX

Thanks in advance

OK, I've given it a bit of a test.

- models are definitely better than MT6, no surprises there.

- I noted two planes parked on top of each other on the first run. Or there's a plane that has two engines at the tail, and two on the (double) wings, that I haven't heard about. I know Boeing bought MD, but I don't recall them making a MD 737-80. :) 

- UTL parks United passenger jets in the cargo area of my airport. MT6 parked appropriate FedEx etc there.

- re: 'live' - the planes in flight that I checked - e.g. Southwest 5004, next flying Denver to Washington RW, is now over TN in my sim - bore no resemblance to the real-world planes in terms of flight plans or location. We know that this is not at all 'live' - despite the...um...unusual choice of name - but I thought the schedules might correspond a bit better to real life than what I saw.

- despite the poor correlation to the real world, the routes and airlines displayed were better than UT6. I've found that that program puts some unrealistic international airlines (e.g. from China) in the parking spots at my rural Tennessee airport, unless the airline codes are fully specified. And even so, a few asian airliners are still found flying overhead. UTL had 100% US traffic, in a place where I expect to find near-100% US traffic.

- It didn't destroy my sim! Definite progress since the first beta release (P3D v4 became unstable after I installed the first beta release, and a complete reinstall was required to sort this).

- I don't think the UT bridge has been developed yet, so I can't use this with Vox ATC.

- It comes with a decent traffic board of its own, though I haven't tested it with Super Trafic Board yet (MT^ works great with that).

Overall, I quite liked it, though I need a bit more testing to compare frames and stability to UT6. I'll likely use the models with PSXSeecon, but stick with that program and RealTraffic for the majority of my flying, with some flights with straight UTL traffic thrown in for variety. The main reason I'll consider returning to MT6 is the lack of connectivity with VoxATC, which works great with MT6.

I preferred UTL to Mytraffic 6.  Parking assignments are better than the original UT2 as is installation and program interface.  When it uses the correct livery, they are much better looking than MT and routes seem more realistic.

Also, it seems to make P3dV4 run smoother than MT6.

 

Try it as Flight One has a great return policy.

There's an issue with Radar Contact in the .30 release as it was in .18 too where you'll get cleared for take-off with 5 planes ahead of you. Went back to .23 for this reason.

I did not find a Radar Contact problem.  It all worked normally.  Now if I could just get a/c off the runway in a realistic manner.

so is this the best AI traffic add-on for P3D? Just like the best and definitive weather addon is ActiveSky. I currently have MT6, and have stopped using that and use my own custom AI for the time being until I can find something better to replace it with.

I think the best is PSxseccon with Real Traffic (now new with 48h history) because it injects live traffic into your sim based on flightradar. But keep in mind that you need ai models (WoAi for example).

Unfortunatley they increased the license price for Real traffic.  A 3/4 year ago when I first heared about it the price was 10USD for a year and I thought that this is fair, but now with increased popularity they increased the price to 60usd for a year and I am personally not willing to spend this much for a yearly subscription.

I'm not interested in paying for any subscriptions for AI traffic, no matter how good it is.

Same here, but with 10USD/year I could justify it for myself when one without subscription is at around 40USD. 

I always enjoyed WoAI and honestly I dont need updated flight shedules as long as I am seeing traffic with authentic livery at the right airport. But unfortunatley since P3Dv4 only a few airliners are working and when they are not updating most of the old ones I am in need of a payware tool.

Real traffic only address AI behaviour, unfortunately it disconnect AI from the reality bubble and the immersion for the end user will be affected as well.

It is not an AI package as you said it you need AI models wich they don't provide.

I don't see any way to compare both tools as these are totally different and do different things.

Thanks

To those who have used this new release, did they remove the outdated liveries?
