Quote Hi,

I'm new to JustFlight traffic products and have not made a decision whether I should jump ships from UTL (currently in P3Dv4.2).

Engine sounds - We do use TSS sounds. Unfortunately there is no provision for engine startup/shutdown sounds in AI aircraft. However, I'm continuing  

Second - how is the performance? In UTL I lose a very minimal amount and am able to place as many aircraft as I need to not collide with them but still have a lot going on.

UTL has many flaws when it comes to schedules and sometimes models for flights, so I definitely wanted to know about that. Below the trailer somsone commentet "haha BA 747 with GE engines", which is also the case in UTL, so my question is: Do you have/plan to include accurate models?

In UTL the developer keeps teasing with a power pack that will include new schedules and models (I lost faith in those) so I'd like to know if it's planned to just put the program out and users have to fiddle with schedules or if you are going to change the program with the real world changing (I.e. air berlin going bankrupt and disappear from the add-on etc) and at what rate? Or cost?

Also just while I'm on that topic: in UTL aircraft models for UPS and FedEx were in the program but not the schedule, which could be solved by a single file for each airline that was imported and added all flights. Is this also possible or planned for TrafficGlobal?

Then - of course - cargo flights. Are cargo airlines (including schedules) included and park at the respective real world stands?

Landing/Takeoff - I've seen an AirFrance 777 violently smash all three wheels into the ground upon landing in the trailer - so will this be improved or was this only on the trailer? UTL isn't perfect in that aspect, but their planes land a bit softer and with the nosegear in the air upon initial tuchdown.

As I said above - I'm not necessarily looking for a release version review here but more for impressions and your experience with the program and the developer. One thing is putting out a product, another thing is being dedicated to supporting it and fixing bugs/keeping it up to date with the real world.

Thanks in advance to anybody taking on this list!

Regards,
Johannes Butz

Hi Johannes,
Thanks for the post. Here are some answers

Engine sounds - We do use TSS sounds for all aircraft. Unfortunately there is no provision for engine startup/shutdown sounds in the AI system, but I continue to look into a way around this. 

Performance - so far I have only come across positive comments about how FPS friendly the aircraft are. You can fill out a large airport with only minimal performance loss. This was something we were very careful about when spec'ing up the aircraft models, and it seems to have paid off. 

747 engines - as you say, some liveries are using models that aren't a 100% fit. At the moment it is too early to say what the plan is for expanding the aircraft already in the package, but we are certainly looking at expanding the fleet at the moment with extra models and aircraft. 

Schedules - again, it's too early to talk specifics, but we will be updating the schedules periodically. For example, during development we were using schedules from Summer '17. As we approached release we were getting comments about Air Berlin etc so we replaced the schedules with a new set from March '18. At the moment, updated winter/summer schedules would make sense. Price etc tbd.  

Aircraft in the software but not in the schedules - you can either manually create your own flight plans for any aircraft already in or that you add to Traffic Global. The database is open, accessible and customisable so there is plenty that can be done with extra schedules.  

Cargo Flights - a number of cargo flights are included and will be parking at the correct locations

Landing/takeoffs - we've had reports that some of the flight dynamics aren't optimal at the moment as people are seeing some hard landings and elongated takeoffs. We're investigating these and fixing at the moment. 

I hope that helps. 

Thanks
Rich
