NEWS : Simubuild File Poll!

Recommended Posts

Hello FlightSimmers, Basically Simubuild would like your ideas on our files, not how they look etc, but the way we package them. Please can you just say if you prefer the ZIP format or the EXE format?ZIP - Smaller download size - Harder to installEXE - Larger Download Size - Easier to installBy harder to install I mean harder than the EXE. Thanks for your help guys and gals :)

I prefer ZIP files. I like to know where everythings going to go when I install it.

ZIP files are better IMHO... quicker to download and allow you to be more organized when installing aircraft.

A well-packaged ZIP is the only way to go. Whenever I get an EXE file, I install it outside of the sim, check it out, copy it in, then uninstall it.

My vote goes for ZIP. If for no other reason than not having 50 "Simubuild Airbus 340-600 Blah Blah livery" in my startup menu I have to delete.Though I do also usually like install all textures by hand.Hope you guys get everything worked out, and put out more excellent releases!
