Really live traffic in your Flight Simulator!


With PSXseeconTraffic (PSXT) you can fly world wide with real live traffic in P3D, FSX or MSFS (* beta see below). Flying in live traffic gives you an awesome immersion. Position your aircraft in the queue for landing or departure at your favourite airport and see all these familiar aircraft around you that are exactly there at that moment in time!

In contrast to "normal" AI programs there are no schedules needed or information about delays or about runways in use. Everything goes like in real live, automatically! Aircraft follow the real SIDs, STARs and jetways or the vectors given by real live flight controllers.

The aircraft injected in your Simulator are representations of real aircraft. They are controlled by live ATC and cannot be controlled by artificial ATC programs for Flight Simulators.

All live aircraft within 100 nm laterally of your aircraft can be injected in your Simulator and PSXT fills your origin and destination airports with aircraft. By 'learning' it detects automatically which airlines park at what gate, with what type of aircraft and at what hours of the day. With that info PSXT builds realistic airport files with aircraft options for parking positions automatically!

PSXT injects aircraft in your Flight Simulator as real as it gets, depending on how many different AI liveries you have available. PSXT does not come with AI aircraft, you should install these yourself. The easiest and cheapest way to start with is to install the Fly Ai aircraft package, a free download from VATSIM and Boston Virtual ARTCC.

Real-live flight data is not included but can be provided by RealTraffic from Inside Systems Pty Ltd or by ADS-B Live by Chris Knipe. Pay-ware RealTraffic provides more functionality than freeware ADS-B Live.

Download PSXseeconTraffic for FSX/P3D

Version 19.7 of the PSXseeconTraffic (PSXT) software package with a 32 bit version for FSX and all versions of P3D, and a 64 bit version for Prepar3D V5.1 HF1 only, Nov 27, 2020, for Windows 7 or later is available here for download

or consult the PSXSeeconTraffic Manual and the PSXT Release Notes first.

Note that version 19.4 with airport conversion capabilities is still available here for download


MSFS: A lot of work has still to be done to bring life aircraft in the new Microsoft Simulator 2020 at the same level as in P3D/FSX. AI traffic Liveries packages such as FLAi have to be adapted to work in MSFS. There is also some shaking and jittering visible when taxiing, that needs to be fixed.

This document contains the steps to be taken to let PSXseeconTraffic generate real life traffic in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020), so you can get an idea.

Quick Start Guide, FAQ and Forum


For a quick start with PSXseeconTraffic study the instructions in the Quick Start Guide.

If you have a question, check the FAQ first please.

Supporting tools


For more advanced use of PSXSeeconTraffic there are two tools.

If you want to use other AI liveries then FLAi, you can install a combination of almost all payware or freeware AI liveries available in the market, such as from FSPXAI, FAIB, Juergenbaumbusch, ATCO Repaints, KYLE's AI Works, Traffic Global, FTX AU, WoAI, IVAO_MTL, MT6, UTL, AIA, AIG, Raven FS Labs and many others.

You will then need my AILGenerator tool to generate a file with information about the liveries you have installed. This file is being used by PSXSeeconTraffic in the matching process with real live aircraft.

Download AILGenerator for FSX/P3D

Version 8.3, Nov 27, 2020, for Windows 7 64 bit or later is available here for download

or consult the Manual and the Release Notes first.

Aircraft registrations can be found in this PSXseeconTrafic Registration Database (thanks goes to Arjen!).


Download AILGenerator for MSFS (beta!)

Version 1.0 beta, Nov 27, 2020, for Windows 7 64 bit or later is available here for download

or consult the Manual and the Release Notes first.


Although PSXSeeconTraffic comes with a folder installation_airports with airport files, you should generate airport files with my tool ParkPosGenerator to make them tailored to your Simulator.

Download ParkPosGenerator for FSX/P3D

Version 18.5, Nov 27, 2020, for Windows 7 64 bit or later is available here for download

or consult the Manual and the Release Notes first.

Airport files with real live parking positions for P3D v4/v5


Here some airport files with real live parking positions for P3D v4/v5, created by PSXT ("self-learning").

Nov 22, 2020: I'm starting fresh, only EDDF already had ramp info, the others did not.

If you also have one or more of these P3D v4/v5 airport add-ons and you want to make a jump start, then put the .xml file(-s) in the parked_updates folder of PSXseeconTraffic.



PSXT Protocol


Are you a data provider, or do you have live traffic data from a ADS-B USB Dongle + Indoor Antenna? This document describes how you can interface with PSXT.



PSXseecon


Maybe you are wondering where the name PSXseecon comes from... Well it all started in 2014 with PSXseecon a program I developed for PSX.

PSXseecon connects the Aerowinx Precision Simulator version 10 (PSX) with the SIOC software of Opencockpits.

2220 predefined SIOC Variables representing 99% of the functionality of the PSX interface are available. These variables give access to almost all states and controls of the PSX. You can receive information about state changes in the 744 and you can set Buttons, Switches, levers, Throttles, Dials, what have you, in the 744. Everything you need to build a cockpit.

Download PSXseecon

Version 3.20, Aug 20, 2019, for Windows 7 64 bit or later is available here for download

or consult the Manual

and the Release Notes first.


Lekseecon


My latest lekseecon software, version 10.6.4 of Jan 3, 2017, that offers a SIOC and FSUIPC interface to the LeveldD 767 SDK is still available (without further support)

Study the Installation Manual first


How to SIOC


My tutorial How to SIOC gives an overview of how to use SIOC, with several example scripts
