Question about Live vs Networked traffic
« on: March 22, 2008, 11:26:29 AM »
A quick question, the answer to which may be obvious...

If you are watching an a/c as part of your live traffic, and you are also receiving networked information (which overlaps your position) about the same aircraft , and bearing in mind the 5 minute delay on network traffic:

What happens to your aircraft visually?  It can't be in two places at once - does your Live traffic take precedence?  Can't get my head around it, but then I'm a novice RB user...

The live traffic will take precedence over the network traffic.  When an aircraft moves out of your range, you will see it's position jump as you pick up the network traffic.

Thanks, Tarbat - I knew there'd be a sensible answer...

Also,

If you select the * to show network traffic you will see that symbol added after the aircraft jumps. Makes me smile when I see the jump - reminds me of going to warp speed in the Starship Enterprise :-)
