Aerosoft Announces Simple Traffic for MSFS

Chrome 2021 07 27 11 06 01

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.

Aerosoft One Announced – A New Product Manager

Aerosoft One Applicatio (2)

A brand new product manager tool from Aerosoft has been announced on the Aerosoft forums. Named Aerosoft One, the new tool will be a new and simple way to install and manage your Aerosoft products for all major platforms.

According to the short introduction post on the forums, the new software will be able to keep all of your Aerosoft products up-to-date, whilst also making it easy to store your product details (e.g. serials) all in one place. In addition, Aerosoft One will allow you to perform one-click installs of owned products without the need to download and then install.

Aerosoft One will allow you to pick which of your hard drives to install your products, along with seeing a download queue and all products installed. The Steam-like application will also support multiple languages.

We’re told that we’ll have this launched “pretty soon” and that more information will be released in the coming weeks. Aerosoft is asking that if you have any suggestions or feedback that now is the time to share so that the developers can take a look at your request.

Thanks to Ben for the tip!
