Eight years and five versions of Flight Simulator have flown by since Just Flight published the first instalment in its legendary Traffic series. Now Just Flight is pleased to announce that the latest version is on its way and Traffic X is set to become the new benchmark for Artificial Intelligence traffic expansions.
Just Flight’s sales manager, Paul Hyslop commented on the announcement“The Traffic series has consistently been our best selling product since 1999. Right from the early days of FS98, customers have been impressed by the way Traffic can bring their flight simulation alive. We coined the phrase‘as busy as it gets’ and this has always been very apt. Once FSX was released we began work on Traffic X and it has been designed from the ground up (pardon the pun) to take full advantage of the FSX engine. In fact, there are so many new features it’s more a revolution than an evolution!”
Traffic X is set to include over 1,600 different aircraft variants based on 65 aircraft models that are designed to the highest level of detail and painted with in a dazzling variety of airline liveries from around the world. They can all be seen flying, landing, taxiing, parking and taking off at airports large and small.
The aircraft featured range from small single-engine private aircraft like the C152 right up to the world’s biggest airliner, the Airbus A380. You’ll also see the highly advanced 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A350 XWB and a huge amount of aviation traffic that falls between these extremes. There is a massive selection of commercial jet airliners, regional jets, regional turboprops, business aircraft, general aviation aircraft and helicopters and, for the first time in the Just Flight Traffic series, a whole host of multi-national military aircraft!
As well as aircraft, Traffic X also boasts a huge set of new features– here is a quick summary:
