I know this is probably old news to some of you but I have just come across a site for freeware mods for MSFS2020 and other games.
If you dont know about it then have a look at Nexuxmods
There is also an addons site. Msfsaddons
Here is another one thanks to Garsonas. Flightsim.to
And another one. Thanks to MeVive MsfsCommunity
OK I think we have quite a few now. So this will be the last one that I will add to the post.
Last one Thanks to StartedCircle35 MsfsReleaseradar NOT IN ENGLISH
Also Freeware and Payware at the following link. Thanks to Scriptlss. Simdir
People should instantly stop putting their stuff on a multitude of platforms and return to the ones known for years, such as the avsim library, flightsim.com or simouthouse. Like now, it is a mess and almost impossible to track if and when an addon was released, updated or modified…
AVSIM library? I’ll pass thanks much like pretty much everything to do with AVSIM. Plus I’ve still got my own hair and teeth and my trousers still come down to my ankles so don’t think I’m their target market😂
I don’t see what the issue is with having new addon sites for a new sim, the better ones will flourish and the others will just fade into insignificance. Can’t see msfsaddons lasting the course, it looks like a 90’s college project, rife with adds and bundles of aircraft you don’t want. Flightsim.to is tidy, well laid out and gets my vote for having individual aircraft skins too👍
The reason why this bothers me is simple: the more diverse the pages are where people upload their stuff, the more difficult it gets to know where addon X or addon Y is for download. I already missed several things like the Malaga addon, simply because it was “published” on a page I never heard of and never would come across if not visiting forums on a daily basis. Having all addons published on two, three pages max. would do great deal in getting everything together. Hope they will include some of the great freeware stuff in the market place, that would be the luxury solution…
A lot of these new FS sites are gaining some significant traction at the moment because of the influx of new simmers to the hobby. This especially applies to sites like Nexus which aren’t FS specific. When a large portion of these new users move on to other interests, these sites will loose popularity as a result.
It may be messy now, but I have no doubt some natural consolidation will occur. The old stalwarts will still be around, and maybe one or two new sites, with some fresh offerings.
That’s why I think this thread should be pinned, so if people finds a new site, they can post the link here. I really hope Flightsim.to will be the next big place to go for addons for MSFS. It has a really nice layout and it’s updated several times a day. So no more Avsim for me.
