A new update for Traffic Global has been published by Just Flight.

The changelog consists of 59 items, addressing bugs, improvements and additions throughout the plugin. It is available to view at the end of this article.

Traffic Global was released about a month ago. It is designed to add "high quality animated AI aircraft models in authentic airline liveries and with full 3D sound and lighting and effects," according to the product page.

The plugin features 65 aircraft types and 860 liveries and works with more than 3,000 airports to deliver over 600,000 AI flights in X-Plane 11.

For further information and to purchase Traffic Global, see the product page on Just Flight's website. The plugin is available for £34.99.

In other Just Flight news, their DR400 was previewed in X-Plane earlier this week, whilst Air Hauler 2 was announced for X-Plane about two weeks ago. More details on the latter available here.
