LiveTraffic, an utility that adds AI traffic to X-Plane 11 based on the FR24 datas, has been updated to a newer version – 1.50.

This version updates the behaviour of the AI aircraft, on the ground likewise in the air. As the developer noted, this is a major update totally changing the way ground traffic behaves. This update fixes the turning on the ground. This is called the Bezier-style, which should provide more smooth turns while taxiing. Also, they added “Safeguard” function, that will fix the approaching aircraft at 2.5° glideslope to avoid short of the runway. The LiveTraffic will now also ensure the nearest aircraft shown when reaching the limit. Further information can be found in the changelog below. Last but not least, smaller but rather important information – the developers are already working on the 2.0 version, which will be supported on Vulkan/Metal API.
