Simroutes Down?

Recommended Posts

For the last two days I've been unable to access simroutes. The message says the server is unavailable.  Is it just me?

I get it too. They gotta get this fixed. I need my .pln files for my flights on the NGX.

Yes, I believe it is down for everyone.  I was not able to access on 140406 2030Z.

I hope it isn't down for good. We lost Vataware I really don't want to lose simroutes too. I haven't been able to find another site or app that can let you make your own flight plan and then download it so that you can just bring it into FSX. I will be very sad if it is gone.

That is a nice website, but I get my routes directly from flightaware. I need a place that I can just take a flightplan and make it a .pln file for my NGX.

Give this site a try, it looks like it offers a download as .pln and .rte. Says it's for FS9 and PMDG, but I don't see any reason it would not work for FSX.

dwaz,

 

Suggest checking out vroute.  It would allow you to either use an existing route in their database, or create your own (from flightaware, etc.).  Either way, you can export the route in multiple format, including PMDG's.

How does one do the download and select the version of MSFS one is using?

FS9 and FSX .pln files are the same so it doesn't matter. In rare cases, the starting points may be off a little bit, but that's it.

So now I'm not getting a server unavailable message but just something that says "simroutes.com" in the top left of the page. Idk if this is good, bad or pointless news.

Someone seems to have paid the electricity bill yesterday, as SimRoutes is now working as before   :-)

Hi,

I am trying to use simroutes.com, but can't generate/download a flight plan at all -says "oops an error has occurred! We apologize for the inconvenience.

Do you know if the site is still in use?

Are there any other "free" route generating sites I could use wit FSX which will handle SID and STAR data?

http://www.simbrief.com/ is excellent and free. Really sophisticated with briefing package and all or just simply to get a real world route.

Exports a bunch of different formats as well.
