Aerosoft Announces Simple Traffic for MSFS

One area of Microsoft Flight Simulator that has yet to see real improvement is the integrated AI traffic. Whilst the live air traffic often matches up with data from real-world sources, it often results in fictional airlines and aircraft types. However, Aerosoft Simple Traffic aims to resolve this issue and also help to optimise the performance of the simulator.

In the forum post announcing the product, an example was given that instead of seeing fake airlines at airports, you will now see liveries with simple models represented correctly. For example, at Schiphol, you will see plenty of KLM aircraft and other realistic airlines. As also mentioned, Aerosoft Simple Traffic will also use the “lowest polygon versions of the default [Microsoft Flight Simulator] AI models” to optimise the performance of the simulator. This then results in a smoother experience at larger airports.

Aerosoft is being clear this is not the “final AI traffic tool we would like to see in Microsoft Flight Simulator,” but due to technical reasons, it’s not easy to create such a product. As such, there are some limitations with Aerosoft Simple Traffic including a limited number of compatible airports where the product will be able to be used. You can also view a complete list of all airlines included here, but it’s worth noting that more are expected in the future.

In terms of pricing, Aerosoft confirmed that the utility tool will be available for €12.50 (plus VAT when applicable). It will be out soon, but as always, check back to FSElite for a full release post when it’s made available.
