Designed with ease of use & and simplicity in mind, Ant Traffic Simulator
is a unique solution that you will love

Adding animated vehicles to your scene was a frustrating chore. Generic rigs are usually bloated and annoying to set up. If you decide to create your own rig, then you will have to learn all about animation controllers, writing expressions, and path constraints among many others.

Ant Traffic Simulator eliminates all the frustration: now you just select your vehicle and click one button to rig it; select the spline to use as path and press a button to have your cars animated along that path; choose the terrain you want to be followed and with couple of clicks your vehicles will follow it. Do you need your vehicle to stop at a stop sign? Just click a button and it will stop. Need your vehicle to drive at 60 miles per hour? Set the speed at 60 and click a button. What can be more simple than that?
