Traffic X and Traffic 360



  • I did lose MFS for a few weeks when I had a calamity with the computer, and the SSds I had windows 7 and MFS were destroyed, + one with trains on steam,
    I have since rebuilt two new computers, one now with win7, MFS, and now with trains on steam, with three SSDs, the other with win 10 and steam with trains, two SSDs.
    I am still using trafficX, I did pre order 360 when it first came out as it was supposed to be an upgrade to traffic X, but like Raym I found it was not,
    I think I only got my system going again as I rebuilt with same type of motherboard, and other parts, so it looked the same to Microsoft. and I clone my drives, so I still had
    SSDs with MfS on, When I first started with MFS I found it was a job to find parking for any flights I made up, as it was already filled up, Plus problems like a float plane
    landing at Marham and getting stuck on the runway, so the way I made way for my flights to park, was to delete all aircraft parked on U/K airfields, I know RayM would most likely create his own parking , I did learn a lot when I first started making up flights, from Freddy Soaranden aqnd RayM about how to do it, As the manual only told you part of the method, I mostly fly a Lancaster, as that is near the same as the Lincolns I worked on as a electrician in 1951/2/3 at Watton and Hemswell, ollso did quite a few hours fliying in them, including one 8 hour flight the long way to Gibralta, and a flight over the mediteranian dropping window to jam the navy radar,
    I have at the moment got 320 of my flights on the computer, I compile using only VFR traffic u/k, and only Europe as country, I think I must be getting to old to be playing around with these computer things,
    Harry,

    Hello Bill,
    thanks for replying in this TrafficX/Traffic 360 topic saying that you are still using T360 and that you are mainly using it to give you an 'active' background of aircraft whilst you do your flying. T360 does the job despite any shortcomings.



  • @pathfinder00199

    Hello Harry,
    pleased to hear that you have got your computer systems up and running again.
    Good that you are using the flexibility of Traffic X to suit what you want to achieve. You will be getting faster load up speeds and frame rates.
    Enjoy your nostalgic flying.



  • @Rich
    Wow !
    Thanks very much. You have made my day.
    Tried it. Works great.
    Thanks for your time - I appreciate it.

    I'll say it again - what a beautiful aircraft to fly in P3d.

    Regards
    Bill

    I have been watching a post in the ADE forum for a few days concerning the replacement of SABA with TNCS and how it has to be done. I thought I would give it a go out of interest.

    Before starting, I had a look at seeing what flights my Traffic X had scheduled for SABA. Much to my surprise there were several B777, B747, A340 and MD11 aircraft all 'hoping' to use this tiny airport which is only suitable for Islanders and Twin Otters. It was very interesting to watch a 747 approach and go-around. All have now been re-routed or deleted of course but I wonder what other 'interesting' schedules' have been come across by Traffic X / Traffic 360 users?



  • Not much of a response to this thread! However, I have only just found this forum!
    I have been an MSFS flyer since 3.1.
    I am using Traffic 360 upgraded from X which was upgraded from Traffic 2005.
    I mainly fly ORBX Australia and New Zealand plus occasionally some flights into Kai Tak (old Hong Kong).
    I have adjusted the database , added some flights in and out of certain airfields, added some repaints.
    I find T360 does all I want it to.
    Still have some issues with ATC not referring to airlines correctly - of course some of that was due to the ATC codes not correctly used in the cfg files.

    Yes, I like T360.



  • @geoffk79
    Pleased to hear from another user of TrafficX/Traffic 360. Welcome.
    You seem to be working and flying in the same areas as our friend "Freddy".
    Adding and modifying schedules can be a great way of 'passing the time' whilst not actually flying and, yes, both of these programs contain a lot of poorly constructed 'aircraft.cfg' files. I have found loads of missing or wrong ATC names and, sadly, quite a few instances of aircraft being designated to an airline incorrectly when another airline of a similar name exists.

    I've replaced the airline traffic for something more up to date but retained the airport vehicles and Military AI components of T360.

    Good to hear from you and interested to hear that you are combining your usage of old and new JF AI packages. Makes sense - seems it is taking a long time for TG to get the package into a complete state - airlines, military and business/private schedules.



  • @RayM
    Apparently, there are no immediate plans to add military traffic to TG and, although they do say that there will be an upgrade the current GA (which is just a mix of a few T360 and default planes), probably after final release.
