I thought i would add this thread NEOFLY another excellent mod that allows you to have a career mode in MSFS 2020 Its FREE aswell, gives purpose to flying around.
Edit added Mods link from Flightsim.to
Another helpful mod just adding to save having multiple posts, Quick ILS lookup has most major airports/GA , also runs outside of msfs2020 so not dependent on version updates of MSFS 2020
ATC chatter for MSFS 2020 real audio clips licenced via LiveATC
Another great addon, Free Version ONLY has US ( 400 samples) , (7000+ in paid version US alone 24000+ world)… but free ver great with new US update. Link below :
I’ve updated the thread to include the flightsim.to links. I had all of the forum links in this thread initially but removed them as requested by a few people due to the thread being cluttered. Thank you!
For “finished” packages at least I hope sites like Flightsim.com or Avsim.com would be my preferred place as well. I am old fashioned and these two have been around for almost as long as I have been using FS
But I do understand that some of these projects would need to be updated so often that the file library guys would soon ask for a raise
Modding MSFS is never “Finished” - not while there are enthusiastic Modders that are constantly adding and improving their Mods, as MSFS changes and evolves.
Maybe in a year or 2, some modes will be determined to be “Finished”, but that is not going to happen soon – unless a Modder just arbitrarily stops doing any further improvements, and keeping their Mod, up-to-date with a constantly changing & evolving MSFS,
A possible TIP for Modders, to help when Asobo does Updates.
One of the biggest problem I see, for Modders, is when Asobo does an update, there are no specific details as to what “may” been “updated”, so it is a potential massive task, to re-test the Mod, to see if anything “MAY” have got broken .
If one knew at least, exactly what files had been changed by Asobo, that would go a long way to determining if any Update, might be affecting one’s mod.
Well, Asobo has NOT historically given that details, but there may be an easy way to tell. Refresh the timestamp on all Files to indicate the current MSFS Version number
ie 184.108.40.206 maybe becomes 1/10/2020 11:0:0 AM
Then, after the next update, and file that is not still 1/10/2020 11.00 AM has been updated.
(easy to list all files after 1/10/2020 11:0:0 AM )
You can then Optionally, refresh all files that are after 1/10/2020 to be the new Version timestamp ie 1/10/2020 12.01 (or whatever)
You can keep doing this before/after each update to keep track
I updated all files & folders in “Official” and sub folders to be 1/10/2020 11:0:0 AM, and MSFS runs just fine, – the Update system does not appear to be looking at File dates …to determine what needs to be updated … (and just as well, that would be a disaster !@!)
