So my hosting service has started to increase the cost of hosting because flighttoolkit.com and the database Flight Toolkit are using are on an older system that i'm guessing they are trying to get rid of.  They have lower price hosting they provide, but that means ultimately moving the whole website and SQL database to a new set up, and I'm sure that will come with it own set of debugging which I don't want to spend any time on.  How many people are actually still using the toolkit?  I've paid for the next year, but i'm looking at doing one of the following two options sometime in the next year:

- Just close the website and SQL database down.  That means unless we have somewhere else to host the addon files, there won't be any way to download them.  I would probably need to update the Toolkit to allow it to work without the server and possibly hard code in some of the data.
- Keep the website up, move it to new hosting, but don't bother with the SQL database.  The addons could still be hosted on the website, and downloaded, but i would need to move the data in the database to be hard coded, or most likely just put it into some files on the website, so they can still be updated.  I think the only thing that really breaks is the ability to add aerocaches, but no one has done that in a while as far as I know.

I suppose one other option would be to just shutdown and the Toolkit may not function at all any more.  Or at least certain things like aerocaches probably won't work.

It's around 1 year since you made this, what you decided regarding MS Flight 2012 and Toolkit and server renting for Aerocaches?

I just wanted to let you know that I am still playing this game, I will never stop playing it, this is a masterpiece game in my opinion, I still regret because I didn't played it back then when it was available. When I wanted to buy all DLC's it was canceled. If I owned all DLC's I would be able to play Multiplayer still today right?

Anyway, thanks to your hard work, underrated hard work if you ask me, I am here again to say a big THANKS for making this game still alive! Yes, I will play MS Flight 2020 but I have a feeling it won't have Voice acted Missions, Challanges and most important, Aerocaches!

I hope you found someone to do that SQL migrating or however is called (I am not experinced with that stuff) or I hope that you had enough free time to do those steps during this C-19 time so the rent subscription can be cheaper and Flight Toolkit can possibly be improved with some new stuff.

All the best to you Stonelance!

Well hello there!

Yes, been flying since 2012 as the only sim. I recently have been one of the lucky ones, who are now testing alpha version of the coming MSFS new sim, so Flight has been on pause since then.
