If you are using Prepar3D, then the new version of LorbyLiveTraffic has Runway Cameras that will track either you or the LLTX traffic.
These P3D Observer type cameras can be created and edited with just a few mouse clicks.
Recently the URLs of the online NASA fire data have changed. To access the online data from within FireFighter X you have to replace a configuration file.
The file is available on the DOWNLOADS page, near the top.
LorbyLiveTraffic 1.73 is available as a free download.
The main feature of this version is a TaxiGuide app. You can input your intended taxi route on a simple dialog or a gauge, and LLTX will create a string of lights in the sim, following that route. (the gauge is currently only available in P3D V4, but the dialog works for every sim that LLTX is compatible with). You can choose between big yello flashing lights or small red constantly glowing ones.
This may be useful for all those simmers who don't use the in-sim ATC.
this new version of LorbyLiveTraffic is mostly about bugfixes. Additional logic has been added to deal with the currently less than ideal data quality of the RealTraffic client - LLTX will either ignore or try to correct datasets that are obviously wrong or outdated.
LorbyLiveTraffic has now gained a "Hybrid" mode. When you own the RealTraffic client, LLTX will let the simulator handle approaches and departures, and switch the aircraft to "live" mode when they are en route.
Several bugfixes and improvements to the existing logic have been added as well.
The new version is available on the DOWNLOADS page.
LorbyLiveTraffic has been updated to 1.61, fixing bugs that prevented GA, military and helicopter traffic from working correctly in the older 32bit sims (FSX through P3D V3)
LorbyLiveTraffic version 1.60 b04 is available for download now.
The biggest new feature is offline (randomized) helicopter, GA and military AI traffic, in all sims FSX trough P3D V4. The app uses the default aircraft for that, but a dialog has been included where you can easily add new models, and localize them down to a single ICAO code. That way you can make sure that only a certain type of aircraft is flying from a specific airfield or country. You can also add "virtual" helipads to increase helicopter traffic if you don't own scenery expansions.
The online part of the app can now be turned off entirely, should you wish to run only the new randomized traffic.
FsPilotShop.com has been out of business for several months now.
We regret that his step is necessary, but as of right now, Lorby-SI products are officially no longer sold on FsPilotShop.
The FsPilotShop website has been under construction for a long time, and every attempt to delete our products from the vendor account has been unsuccessful. Therefore it is not certain that they won't suddenly reappear. Please do not buy Lorby products from this shop, should they be listed again in the future.
LorbyLiveTraffic has been updated to version 1.51
LorbyLiveTraffic has been updated to version 1.50 b01.
Starting with this version, aircraft will taxi in to a (more or less random) gate in Live mode too. They can't taxi out, because of how transponders are handled in the real world - the signal is picked up way too late to allow a taxi from the gate to the runway - most transponders are switched on just before take off.
Also in this version there is the option to populate the airports with static aircraft automatically, using either the airport parking codes or, if those aren't available, the actual traffic around the airfield.
This is still in experimental status. Development will continue, and any input from users is welcome.
