Where is the traffic up in the air ?

Recommended Posts

I have the addon Simple Traffic, yes I get a lot of planes at the gates, but my main issue how do I get to actually see planes in the air while I am flying ?  I see a lot of traffic up in the air on the Microsoft map10 or 12 planes, but when I check external views I never see the planes, ever, ever.  I have been flying for many many years, where are the planes ?  See them on the map while flying,, where the heck are they????  Seriously, how do I fix this problem, or is this just a plain old bug?

Yea something is certainly wrong, I had to remove Simple Traffic because it makes too many planes spawn and do multi airliner formation flybys on towers.

I run this program as well. Yesterday I had plenty of traffic that I could see while in the air, as well as landing and taking off while I was doing the taxi. I am set for live traffic.

Ronny,

>‘General Options> Traffic

aircraft traffic type - real-time online

use generic plane models = on 

traffic variety = ultra

>General Options> data

live real world air traffic = on

>while setting up a flight in the Flight Conditions screen

Air traffic = Live traffic

weather = live

 

hope this helps

 

edit here is the manual for the product, it details the setup on page 6. Apparently traffic variety at ultra is critical.

For me , simple traffic, and live traffic. That's it, no settings involved.

I set Simple Traffic with suggested settings as well as with the live traffic and I get mixed results.

With the off-line traffic you get all the bugs that have been reported, but there's plenty of parked airliners to enjoy.

With the "live" setting there's hardly any airliners parked, I hear some airliners with ATC enabled, and I've seen some unusual parking and even flipped upside down aircraft.

This is honestly an atrocity. I paid extra for an add-on that does nothing but add realistic liveries. I hope ASOBO fixes the AI feature ASAP. We have waited long enough.

I tried your settings FrankR409 saw traffic in  the air but when I was at the gate at KJFK very little traffic in the airport.

Because simple traffic uses the default generic models that are like the size of an A330. Not many airports have parking big enough for them, and ones that do won’t have that many spots.

I see a lot of hit/miss traffic going on too. I have all the major packs from AIG installed maybe 40 or so to give a good world spread (using Live AI setting) . I fly sometimes continental EU and there's nothing there. When really the skies over Germany and France should be littered with planes. There's always traffic around in general at airports coming and going, but something is a bit wrong still. I don't think we are seeing all of it.

AI aircraft are absolutely a bungled mess. At large airports, Simple Traffic does exactly what it says.... adds paint and nothing else. But not since FS2000 has the world looked so vacant. General aviation is almost zero. For a sim that has focused on visuals, I’m baffled why MS has, so far, ignored this feature. 

If they fix this (and the poor ATC) and we’d have a decent simulated aviation world.
