Freeware Live Traffic Mod for MSFS

Freeware Live Traffic Mod For MSFS (5)

A new freeware modification tool called Easy airlines+aircraft matching with default live traffic has been released on Flightsim.to which aims to make traffic in Microsoft Flight Simulator more realistic.

The utility does require you to use IVAO Altitude for Microsoft Flight Simulator, but once installed, you will have a huge variety of AI aircraft that represent realistic aircraft types and airlines in your sim. For example, the add-on will add in the correct aircraft and liveries based on the data that is streamed into the sim from the real-world traffic. This means 737s, A380s, etc, will all match their counterparts.

In addition, there is a detailed FAQ and support topic on the download page. Within that, the developer says that you should gain frames as the models are optimised.

Whilst this tool doesn’t claim to be the perfect solution to having more realistic AI live traffic in Microsoft Flight Simulator, it is a solution that does a reasonable job – and certainly better than the default options available to us.

If you want to give this great little tool a go, you can download it from Flightsim.to right now for free. Full installation instructions can be found on that same page.

Let us know in the comment section how you found the tool.

One area of Microsoft Flight Simulator that has yet to see real improvement is the integrated AI traffic.

However, Aerosoft Simple Traffic aims to resolve this issue and also help to optimise the performance of the simulator. In

REX Releases Real Global Airport Textures for MSFS

Rex Real Global Airports Msfs (3)

In a surprise move, REX has released a brand new product for Microsoft Flight Simulator called Real Global Airport Textures. The team beyond Weather Force for the simulator has released a brand new texture product that enhances all airports around the world with new high-definition textures.

The new product will apply to all 37,000 airports and add a more realistic looking set of textures to each of the airports. The new product adds over 1GB of new data that will enhance the aprons, taxiways, runways and ground markings at each airport. REX says that Real Global Airport Textures includes 28 different types of runway surfaces and each set includes realistic weathering, dirt, grime and cracking effects for maximum realism. Along with the improvements to the runways, REX also says that this product adds different variants of surfaces for taxiways and apron areas. Despite the new level of detail, REX says that this product is “FPS-friendly.”

The team say that this product will have an impact on all default airports, and even some freeware ones that use the standard texture sets found in the simulator.

Right now, we can only see that the product is available on Just Flight’s website for £11.99. At the time of writing, there’s no official statement from REX on their social channels or website.
