Known Limitations

  • Simple Traffic applies liveries to the default MSFS AI models. It does not make changes to the models themselves, and therefore inherits all the properties of those models and any changes made in Sim Updates.
  • Simple Traffic has no influence on AI aircraft parking locations, taxi paths, or flight paths. This behaviour is controlled internally by the sim engine.
  • In Online AI mode, liveries are selected according to the live traffic data feed within the sim. If Simple Traffic does not yet include a livery for a given airline, then a random livery is selected. This behaviour is controlled internally by the sim engine.
  • If the MSFS ‘Ground Aircraft Density’ slider is set above 0, static aircraft will be generated at airport parking locations with random (geographically inaccurate) liveries. This behaviour is controlled internally by the sim engine. In Offline AI mode, parked aircraft are automatically populated according to the (geographically accurate) offline traffic routes and schedules. We therefore recommend to set this slider to 0 in Offline AI mode.
  • Without special steps to disable it, the stock MSFS offline traffic routes and schedules will continue to generate some offline AI flights with random liveries. This behaviour is controlled internally by the sim engine. Unfortunately, this cannot be overridden using replacement files in the Community folder alone (but can be manually overridden with changes to a file in the Official folder).
  • The flight plan datasets used to derive Simple Traffic’s AI routes and schedules have very good coverage for Europe, the USA, and Australia, but some other regions (e.g., Russia, China, The Middle East, Africa, and South America) have only partial coverage at present.
  • Simple Traffic is designed to completely replace the MSFS ‘Generic’ twin-jet and quad-jet AI aircraft. Any other AI add-ons which also contain ‘Generic’ twin-jet or quad-jet aircraft will cause a conflict (see Conflict Checking section above). We therefore recommend that any other AI addons containing ‘Generic’ aircraft should be uninstalled or re-configured.
  • Due to a known bug in MSFS, in Online AI traffic mode, AI traffic spawns with no front landing gear at airports and does not depart: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/new-live-traffic-bug-departing-aircraft-spawn-with-front-landing-gear-up-and-dont-actually-depart/427249. This bug does not affect Offline AI traffic mode.

This is so exciting. Can’t wait.  Thank you for reviving this - I was really disappointed when you had to discontiue its development.

 

So were we. Believe me, we lost sleep, but the developper (Jeff) solved it.

Wouldn't it be an idea to report a suggestion to Asobo to define a default fallback livery for on-line AI matching? So if an ICAO is not found revert to XXX (which can be a white livery)? This would really add to the immersion of places where less airlines are available (like seeing easyJet in South Korea)...

That means it will collide with Airport Static Aircraft for Asobo airports from Latin VfR?

Just check your sim now. After you installed Simple Traffic it will look exactly the same with only the aircraft having a different livery.

 

Let me make a macro for this, lol:

Simple Traffic does NOT affect the positioning or routing (taxying or flying) of AI aircraft in any way.  it ONLY makes the aircraft look different.
