Traffic Global for XPlane 11 (Windows) provides high quality animated AI aircraft models in authentic airline liveries and with full 3D sound and lighting and effects. Installation is simple and the software is ready to run 'out the box'.
Traffic Global comes with 65 aircraft types and over 860 liveries covering most of the world’s airlines. Over 600,000 flights are included by default and these cover more than 3,000 global airports with complex, multi-point, multi-day flight schedules. New or altered aircraft liveries can be easily added and do not require any additional configuration.
Traffic Global loads everything in the background and is usually ready to go as soon as your flight starts. Even with hundreds of AI aircraft on screen and more being simulated nearby, simulator performance is barely affected.
The AI aircraft respond to the movements of your aircraft as you move around an airport and the software is compatible with all third-party airports. Seven new controllable external views allow you to follow individual AI aircraft and three new control windows are also included: a radar display centred on your aircraft, a flight board which is switchable between all nearby airports and a flight plan display showing nearby airports, taxiways and flying aircraft.

Hundreds of combinations of airlines and aircraft provided - Traffic Global comes with 65 aircraft types over 860 liveries covering most of the world’s airlines.
Over 600,000 flights included by default – the flight database is created from recent commercially sourced flight data and processed using custom tools specifically written for Traffic Global. It has up-to-date flights covering more than 3,000 global airports with complex, multi-point, multi-day flight schedules.
High performance – even with hundreds of AI aircraft on screen and more being simulated nearby, simulator performance is barely affected. Traffic Global is highly multi-threaded.
AI respond to the sim pilot – as you move around the airport, other traffic will do its best to stop and allow you to pass. Collision with AI is possible but can be disabled.
Seamless start-up – there is no need to manually configure a flight plan or wait when you start a new flight or move to a new airport; Traffic Global loads everything in the background and is usually ready to go as soon as your flight starts.
Full 3D sound for all aircraft – each AI aircraft has engine and equipment sounds modelled in 3D using the widely supported OpenAL. Volume is controllable independently of X-Plane’s own.
Simple installation – no messing around setting up subscriptions, additional files or per-airport custom setups. Traffic Global is ready to run 'out the box'.
Compatible with third-party airports – Traffic Global uses the same data for airport definitions as the simulator itself, so third-party airports, both commercial and free, will be used if they are installed.
Many new camera types – seven new controllable external views allow you to follow individual AI aircraft, either independently or in association with your own.
Three new control windows – a radar display centred on your aircraft, a flight board switchable between all nearby airports, and a flight plan display showing nearby airports, taxiways and flying aircraft are provided. Each has hotkeys and can be detached from the main X-Plane window.
Full X-Plane integration – new map layers showing flying or grounded AI aircraft are added to X-Plane and most hotkeys can be re-assigned using the standard X-Plane settings.
Networking support included as standard – serious cockpit builders using more than one PC to control their displays get the same traffic across their entire setup.
Extendable – new or altered aircraft liveries can easily be added and will be used with no additional configuration. New traffic can be added using freely-available tools; Traffic Global uses the same traffic database format as Prepar3D and Flight Simulator X.
Potential for third-party plugin integration – Traffic Global publishes 'datarefs' exposing the locations of all nearby traffic and includes example code for using them.

Version 1.0.8818 (January 13th, 2019):
This release contains a workaround for the problem experienced by some people where opening the map towards the end of a flight caused an immediate crash. This was caused by X-Plane bug XPD-10497 but until that is fixed, Traffic Global will work around the issue. There is also now official support for older CPUs (specifically the first-generation Intel i7 which had no AVX instruction support), and a compatibility fix for librain in VR.
Many other plugins have been tested as part of this update. There are no known compatibility problems with any of the following: xPilot, 124thATC, A-Better-Circle, Autogate, AviTab, BetterPushback, JoinFS, Gizmo64, TerrainRadar, X-ATC-Chatter, XPForce.
Provided that no more stability changes are needed, work can progress faster on smoothing out movement around some airports with unusual or poorly defined taxi routes.
The custom map layers will re-enable themselves if you disable them, each time X-Plane loads new scenery. This is X-Plane bug XPD-10498 and cannot be worked around.
Custom views do not respond correctly in VR. This is X-Plane bug XPD-10412.
If very few aircraft are nearby, additional false aircraft are reported via TCAS. This is X-Plane bug XPD-10434.
Changes in this release:
- Change the module name from '64\win.xpl' to 'win_x64\Traffic Global.xpl' in line with the current recommendations
- Compatibility fix for librain in VR
- Add option to totally remove map layers
- Correct the spatial cell index count in the BGL
- Fix missing green nav light on B757-200-PW
- Add about 50 more airline records
- Fix Norwegian Air Shuttle ICAO code (was NAS, corrected to NAX)
- Validation options in debug mode
- Add a workaround for X-Plane bug XPD-10497, a random crash when drawing the map after new scenery has loaded
- Small performance improvement for dataref access
- Add flight phase dataref
- Support CPUs older than 2011
- Disable the folder browser in the installer when updating to a new version
