    Aerosoft - Simple Traffic

    Time for an update... Not a good one. SimUpdate 5 wrecked this project as it changed the AI traffic and encrypted the files we were depending on. So at this moment this project is dead. For me this is just a bummer and at this moment a loss of a solid day of work. For Jeff, who worked on this for months it is a massive blow to the groin. Just imagine his position, how he feels.

    Now we have not given up. There are options but not as smooth and 'simply' as we were aiming for. These are explored. Plans are made, spreadsheets that have costs and expected sales are being done. We loved this project and if there is any way we can make it work it will be done. But we need the sim to be a stable platform. So it could all be taking a while.

    On behalf of Aerosoft and Jeff, sorry.

      As closely as Aerosoft worked with Asobo (They are the ones who released MSFS on disk), this is definitely a kick in the nuts.

      This is one add-on I was seriously considering.

      Asobo just kicked me in the nuts too

      Yes, I'm sure Asobo did this on purpose. Both to Aerosoft and specifically to you. I do hope you are able to move on with your life.

      And for the record, Asobo owes nothing to Aerosoft. They owe us as consumers and that's it. Not having some clowns trying to hack the traffic system in MSFS is likely best for all of us as so many of the alleged problems with this SU5 are due to poorly made addons.

      I agree 100%, Asobo is in Denial, they keep saying how great is the game and how fantastic are the Updates, when its Not True. They mess up quite a few number of users and Developers with this crazy and latest so called update that destoyed Developer's moths of work. Most have also had to re-do their airplanes.
      I was expecting Simple Traffic as a much needed addon.

      Aerosoft was going to over-charge us anyway, for something that Asobo now did for free?

      He said nothing of "free". He said over charge and that is something that Aerosoft is notorious for doing and the last thing I bought from them was their F-16 before it got tied to P3D never to be updated again. Their CRJ is $51USD and way over priced for what it is. Just because the sim is new doesn't mean that the addons need to be unreasonably priced.

      The guy said Asobo has done this for FREE! will you please tell me what it is? for the AI traffic asobo has right now is default aircraft NOT what Aerosoft announced ---Real Airlines logos!!!!! on the Ai. So what are you talking about?...no one bends your arm to buy anything. If you are smart, you can check all over the net about any product and find out if its good or not before dishing out your money...Be Smart!
