The Ultimate Traffic series is back and this time with Ultimate Traffic Live (announced on the Flight1 forum) and to start off with there’s a ‘soft release’ as they’re calling it, which is live to the public. The devs explain things well so I shall leave it to Steve from the Flight1 team:

“Hi,

We are releasing Ultimate Traffic Live to the public as a “soft” release to forum users.

The product has been in beta testing for a while with our testers, and we now feel broader use of the software would be good as we finalize the product.

Even though this is pre-release software, it is very close to the final release. So if you are comfortable working with pre-release or beta versions of software, then you are welcome to purchase Ultimate Traffic Live now!

Because this is pre-release, please report any bugs in the UTLive support forum here. We want your feedback!

There will be some changes in the final release that may affect liveries and some functions. You will be able to download the final release once it comes out.

There is no manual yet as most of the help is included as part of our mouse-over help feature. There will be a quick-start guide provided soon.

IMPORTANT:

Ultimate Traffic 2 cannot be run at the same time as UTLive. You need to make sure UT2 is disabled. The easiest way to do this is to locate the EXE.XML file for the sim you are using.

For Prepar3D, that would be in the following location:

C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3 (or v2)

For FSX it will be in:

C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

To make it easier, you can download the XMLFolder tool which can find and open the folder for you. Download this tool at http://www.flight1.com/files/XMLFolders.zip

Once you open the EXE.XML file in a text editor, such as Notepad. Right-click the file and select “Open With”.

There, you will see this section. You need to set Disabled to True:

<Launch.Addon>
<Disabled>True</Disabled>
<ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
<Name>UT2</Name>
<Path>C:\FSX\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\UT2Services.exe</Path>
<NewConsole>True</NewConsole>
</Launch.Addon>

The price of UTLive is the same as UT2 ($44.95). You can download one of the coupons below to receive a discount if you are an existing UT2 customer. This is more than a 33% discount off the full version price.
