Download Traffic

(for downloading a demo version of the JTraffic project see the JTraffic download page.)

The actual version of Traffic is 4.15 . There are a few new possibilities in the last version, but it was mainly a bugfix release.

There are 3 different install programs for Traffic:

  • The internet-based install: traffic_dnld.exe. It is a relative small (440 kB) install programm. It will download the selected components of Traffic during the installation.
  • The full installation package: traffic_full.exe. It contains all components of Traffic, so you will have to download more, than 350 MB (about the size of a traditionally compressed 3/4 hour movie). It is recommended to use the full installation package only, if you want to install Traffic on several computers, or you will transfer it to a computer without internet access.
  • The CD/DVD version. You can find it each year in the special issue MIBA Digital. Due to copyright restrictions the drawings of some authors cannot be included in a version distributed commercially (even if the program itself is freeware, and the authors do not earn money for it), so that pictures are separated in particular picture libraries, and will be downloaded during the installation.

The full installation package is able to access the internet too, and download updates and extensions - the newest program version, new or extended picture libraries and the newest timetable files (scene definitions).

The preferred method of updating an existing installation of Traffic is to download and start once more the internet-based install program, traffic_dnld.exe. Nevertheless, choosing the hard way you can reach also the individual components, download the ZIP files, and replace the files yourself. Please be aware: a new timetable file set usually uses new vehicle and/or background pictures too, perhaps needs new program functions, an updated vehicle picture set can use extended or newly implemented modifiers in the program, so always update your program version, and for a newer timetable set also update your picture sets too. If you download the actual stock list file setup.stb (stock.zip), you will need the create the traffic.stb stock list file yourself by starting the menu command Reinstall Stock List in the configuration window. Updating the stock list (either manually, or by the installation program) will recreate the 'official' stock list file, you will loose all the additions and modifications you have made in the stock.stb file. So, if you work on the stock list file yourself, it is a good practice to save your own version under a different name!
