Best addon website?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I was wondering where the majority of simmers go to check all the available addons (freeware and payware)

I started with https://www.msfsaddons.org/

then I found https://flightsim.to/#result-page-3

and now https://www.nexusmods.com/microsoftflightsimulator

It is currently a royal pain to go check each one of them so I was wondering if there is a single website which have all addons in one place?

Thank you

I find your 2nd reccommendation the best for layout and updates.

I seem to be plaugued with adverts on both the others, really annoying

I really like the second as well for the layout, the changelog roadmap and the frequent updates.

There are photogrammetry scenaries in there from Tuscany, my region, so that keeps me even more interested 🙂

You have the top three there.  👍

Unfortunately, as some have mods that others don't, you will always have to do the rounds if you want to keep up.  But that's the fun of the internet! 😁

There are also a few Reddit pages that you can follow for the odd update and useful information that doesn't make it to the above pages.  You will find them if you search.


I like to fool airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio!

Thats all part of the fun, free choice..

There are quite a few sim sites that I look at daily. Especially the forums. Each tend to have a slightly different outlook on simming, from classics to modern.

So, dont be lazy & spent some time finding those gems. Better an open market place than a single market..

Hope they sort out the ton of scenery issues check out New Orleans airport and surrounding scenery and the giant trees and pot plant at the super dome.

Nexus has a daily cap. I don't like sites where I need to join, only to be limited unless I pay.

I thought the Avsim library would be re-spawned as the central repositary.

Please no.. Let the developers decide for themselves.. Why Avsim, by the way?

Well that's the point. I think the flightsim community is now much more expansive than it used to be, and many don't even know about Avsim - or don't like it.

Well, Flightsim.com had their first MSFS add-on on the 22nd August!!

& you are suggesting that Avsimmers must tell the whole sim community that Avsim should be the central repository for MSFS add-ons?

Did I say that ?  I don't think I did.

This, especially that last part.  I'd love to be wrong, but I'm pretty confident that the Avsim library is going to be a bit player when it comes to the FS2020 ecosystem.   There are lots of folks who don't come here who aren't going to use the avsim library just because it used to be the main place to go, and there are already strong alternatives cropping up that *are* seeing heavy use.

Of the leading crop of sites I like flightsim.to the best.   They're more focused than nexusmods and have a less annoying website.   msfsaddons.org is kinda spammy and information-sparse, plus you can't subscribe to individual mods like you can the others.  The release radar at cruiselevel.de is pretty good, too.
