A few years (and a lot of traffic) have passed since Just Flight released FS Traffic for Flight Simulator 98. The latest version, Traffic 2005, has been completely re-worked by Just Flight's in-house development team and is a quantum leap beyond any other traffic program. As well as lots of new content there are some fantastic new features that put Traffic 2005 in a class of its own. Probably the most exciting of these for flight sim enthusiasts is AISmooth.
This is a unique new AI traffic approach management feature that has been designed to virtually eliminate the number of go-arounds and dual aircraft approaches that plague other traffic programs at busy airports. AISmooth really enhances the authenticity because without this feature congested airports can soon take on the appearance of an airborne carousel.
AISmooth achieves this by instructing approaching planes to perform holding patterns if they are following the plane in front too closely. In addition, the program will check the distance and headings of AI planes in the vicinity of the user's aircraft. If AI planes come too close, are heading in the same general direction and are within an altitude range that suggests you are both established on the same approach path, the AI planes will be instructed to perform holding patterns. AISmooth brings order to the chaos!
Traffic 2005 is scheduled for worldwide release on 5th August 2005.
