I enjoy using World Traffic 3 with X-Plane 11, just because it gives the world some much needed life as you start up and arrive at airports. It is a definitely a ‘fiddly’ app, meaning you have to play with it to get it how you like it, but it’s quite clever on the things it does.
One essential thing is to get all the real-world routes, airlines and liveries used with it. That was surprisingly easy with a single download from here:
The volunteer group that maintains that does a great job, and it really increases immersion to see local carriers and liveries, following their normal routes.
Anyway, some screens to show it in action. This is XP11 beta, Mister X KSFO airport with Forkboy2 Ortho local tiles (all free as well).
Here I am at San Francisco International (KSFO) in the midst of the crowd during a busy day, somewhere at gate 56. Weather is a little misty today but nice enough.
Not my aircraft for today, but I have to admit we’ve been on this livery a couple of times taking the kids to Anaheim. These are all included in Airline updates in WT3.
A big guy, taking all the space.
Here’s my more modest Zibo 737 boarding.
KSFO can get crazy busy, including parallel landing assignments. Here you can see the WT3 info on the STAR arrival per flight.
Here’s the view from the old control tower. The aprons and taxiways really fill up.
Ok, final family group shot.
