SimLauncherX - The freeware tool everyone has been waiting for!

Recommended Posts

It's now out: http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=187387

 

After many months of beta testing, bug-fixes and new features constantly being added, the awesome Maarten Boelens has released the new version of his freeware tool - SimLauncherX.

 

This a complete game changer. No more default FSX/P3D2 interfaces!

 

Just two cool features that pop to mind:

 

- Automatically add Ezdok entries to your aircraft (lens flare enabled!). No more Estonia migration tool or Ezca CFG tool.

- C&D ANY aircraft. Never again will you start a flight with your engine running...

 

The list of features is LONG so just grab your copy asap and check it out! :)

This is Fantastic App.

 

This is better than FScommander and even faster than Plan-G.

It has no alternative atm. Nothing even comes close as far as I know.

133 page manual . I wonder how similar it is to Simstarter which is also a great App.

Time to hit the manual

Well, I'm the one who wasn't waiting for it. :rolleyes:

 

But I was curious and installed it. Nicely done tool but I still couldn't see any need for me to use it. Crashed after P3D v2.4 was started but this may be because of my Windows 10 technical preview. So I decided to uninstall it.

 

Anyway it's great that somebody is doing such a nice freeware tool, thanks.

Unfortunately mine has also crashed  and a message popped up to send the error log to the devs email which I did .

Just awesome.

 

The manual is a must read though (I assumed for example, I could just go ahead and use UNC's to map my server folder locations, but you have to use mapped drive letters).

Still reading through everything, as I have a play.

 

Thanks Maarten, this is payware quality. Expect a token or two of gratitude :)

This utility has allot of great parts, I think my favorite is the nice instruments view... Now I can have those instruments displayed on a separate display, something I've been seeking to incorporate . Done.

 

And the app layout is totally intuitive and yet deep....Lots to explore. This can very well be a suitable launcher for these Sims. Very cool.

A warm thanks to Maartens for his awesome work.

It's such a handy application, I will never use FSC again!

Very very smart tool, I'm just discovering all its potential.

Brillant!

I downloaded this and played around with it a little last night and all I can say is WOW...this app is feature rich and I am going to have to get into the manual to fully get a grasp on all it can do.  With all of the payware in our community I am amazed that this app is donationware.

I have been using SimLauncher for many moons - cannot imagine flight simming without it - terrific!

 

Thank you, Maartens!

SimLauncherX might well make a hand full of payware and - unfortunately - freeware coders unemployed. I found virtually ANY function I was looking for so far.

 

Kind regards, Michael

How does it replace the Estonia Migration Tool?  Does it facilitate the use of FSINN with P3D?

Hi,

 

Thanks for all the nice words!

 

I have been busy today helping people to get SLX up and running. Most problems are caused by errors in the scenery.cfg file, trying to create the SLX database when FSX/P3D is running and errors in aircraft.cfg files, flight files and flight plan files. Of course I also made some mistakes myself. So far I have been able to help everyone out and in the mean time I've made SLX a little bit more robust to cope with these errors. Difficult issues will be solved immediately, the impossible might take a little longer :smile2:.

 

I have looked at the OPUS weather files, but unfortunately these files only provide weather data for a certain area around the user aircraft, so I cannot use these files to display world wide weather on the map.

 

SLX has nothing to do with making other addons work with P3D, so it has no relation to the EMT tool at all.

 

There's still a couple of things on my wish list like the use of Navigraph/Aerosoft NavDataPro Airac cycles, show Vatsim information on the map, a G1000 in addition to the standard instruments, ... It might take a while though before this becomes reality, since this is just a one man show.

 

If you have any problems installing SLX, using SLX, or have an idea for a new feature please don't hesitate to contact me.

I hope you will enjoy it.

 

Maarten

I LOVE THIS PROGRAM. 

 

I haven't looked throughout yet, but is there something like a skyvector type link in there.  In other words real sectionals?

@Denali: I don't quite understand what you mean with a 'skyvector type link'. Can you please elaborate?
