Just Flight has announced the latest version of their AI traffic add-on. Traffic 2005 has been completely reworked and includes improved features like AISmooth which helps separate aircraft, preventing go-arounds. For full details, click on Read More.The latest instalment in the Traffic series is building up!

A few years (and a lot of traffic) have passed since Just Flight released FS Traffic for Flight Simulator 98. With each new release this hugely popular AI (artificial intelligence) traffic expansion lives up to its slogan and makes Flight Simulator “as real as it gets”.

Traffic 2005 has been completely re-worked by Just Flight’s in-house development team and is a quantum leap beyond any other traffic program. As well as hordes of aircraft (over 1100), buckets of airline liveries (over 400) and acres of modified airports (over 3000) there are some fantastic new tools that put Traffic 2005 in a class of its own!

AISmooth – a unique new AI traffic approach management feature - has been designed to drastically reduce the number of go-arounds that are performed by AI planes at busy airports and really enhances the authenticity. AISmooth instructs approaching planes to perform holding patterns if they are following the plane in front too closely. In addition, AISmooth will check the distance and headings of AI planes in the vicinity of your aircraft. If AI planes come too close, are heading in the same general direction and are within an altitude range that suggests you are both established on an approach path, then the AI planes will be instructed to perform holding patterns.

The package includes a custom voicepack which provides additional pilot and ATC voices. The FS2004 default only includes American accented voices - the voices included in Traffic 2005 are two US English, four British English and two English voices with German accents.

This latest version includes helicopter traffic – a first for any commercial flight simulation traffic expansion!
