The team at FS Live Traffic Liveries, more commonly known as FSLTL, announced the release of their latest update, version 1.5, on their Discord server..
For those unfamiliar with FSLTL, it is a freeware utility for MSFS that injects live A.I. traffic into the simulator and provides VATSIM model-matching. The injector includes over 1,440 aircraft liveries, with more constantly being added. Each aircraft model features 4K and PBR textures, custom sound packs for the different phases of flight, and custom effects like engine heat haze, contrails, and more. The injector includes both IFR and VFR flights to ensure that all flight simmers can enjoy some company in the skies.
Version 1.5 includes several new features, as well as bug fixes and upgrades to improve the realism of the traffic injected into the simulator. First, the traffic will now fly SID/STAR procedures based on the current METAR and the active runways in the simulator. However, this feature is only available to those with Navigraph Navdata installed since an Asobo bug prevents the utility from using the Asobo navdata.
Other notable features include the cruise speed of aircraft flying over 10,000 feet being synchronized with the data from FlightRadar24, a workaround for the floating landing issue that appeared in SU12, the ability to configure the general aviation parking setting for spots with less than a 10-meter radius, and the use of updated flight plans and improved flight plan generation with the FlightPlanDatabase API. The major improvements and bug fixes include updating the airport file to April 2023 data, improved VFR aircraft in-flight handling, fixing CTDs at certain airports, preventing aircraft from flying to the previous flight plan waypoint, and more.
Version 1.5 of FSLTL is now available for download in the FBW installer. If you have yet to try out FSLTL, you can download the injector and liveries for free from the FBW installer. For more information about how FSLTL works, you can visit their website.
