    Default XP 11 Newbie with scenery questions: World Traffic 3

    I'm a newbie to X-Plane and just installed version 11 on my Intel i5-based Fedora 28 Linux system (AMD Radeon RX570 GPU with 8GB, 16 GB system RAM, SSD disks). X-Plane installed painlessly and runs well, only crashing once when I tried to move the time slider in replay mode. My previous flight sim experience was limited to FSX on Windows, but as I am a Sysadmin by profession, I always wanted to get a sim running on Linux. So far I'm not disappointed. I don't yet own a nice yoke/rudder pedal setup so for now I'm making do with a game controller configured to handle control axes, throttle, elevator trim, brakes and views. I'm pretty pleased with the frame rate in windowed mode and overall stability of the program. (An early attempt using a cheap NVidia GPU with two GB VRAM was a disaster so I quickly sprung for the bigger, beefier RX570. I had to upgrade the power supply to 550W too, but that was expected.)

    So on to my question: Is World Traffic 3 a good way to add more airport traffic to smaller airports? One thing I miss about FSX was the AI air traffic, as minimal as it was. So far in X-Plane I've seen one or two small planes departing busier airports like KSBA and KVNY. (Yes, I have the traffic settings and everything else view-related set to maximum.) I'm a real-life private pilot (PPSEL) and I mainly want to use the sim with the Cessna 172 SP for now, since that's about all I fly. I'm based out of Camarillo (KCMA) and I mainly stay in southern California. I'm just not interested in flying airliners or anything bigger than, say, a Beechcraft Baron so the small to medium size airports are all I want to visit.

    Try the freeware version of XLife. Here is a video: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...BB6E&FORM=VIRE

    Thanks, RocketRod. That's a very enticing demo, but the X-Life web page says no Linux support at this time.
