Mod Selector 0.8 + Online mods DB

Recommended Posts

Earlier, I posted a link to a mod, and some mentioned it apparently slowed their startup to the point they felt they had to remove it. It seemed to me that if this issue was real and widespread, then with all of the creativity out there, a solution was probably in the works. And it wasn't hard to find!





About this file

The MSFS mod selector solves a common problem in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (MSFS): even though only a few weeks after release, there are hundreds of high-quality community-created mods to enhance MSFS experience even further, installing a large number of them considerably slows down MSFS startup time to an unbearable point.

A simple manual solution is to manually copy only the mods you want to use at one time before starting the simulator.

The Mod Selector assists you in this by automating the selection process: it allows you to easily group mods by type and (for world enhancements which would be most mods) by continent, country, and even by city as well as by aircraft type (for aircraft mods).

Here’s how this works:

  • Start up the Mod Selector before starting MSFS.
  • You must register each mod once with the Mod Selector.
  • If a mod is already in Mod Selector’s online mod database, it will register automatically.
  • Simply select all the mod categories you want to activate.
  • The Mod Selector will automatically copy the relevant mods into your Community folder / move away all unwanted mods into a temp folder.
  • Then, start MSFS and enjoy a significantly decreased startup time.
