Sorry, but this paying for "free" stuff is getting out of hand. You can never get thru so I guess you have to pay to download anything anymore. Is there another place I can find quality d/loads. I'm looking for that B-29 Enola Gay that was recently released and have'nt found it here at AVSIM.Simviation appears to be behind the times as well.

Help AVSIM continue to serve you!
Please donate today!

I know just what you mean, I always pull demos before buying games as over the years I have amassed a lot of crap. Lately, not only can you not even download demos, but you can no longer ever read reviews, with places like IGN and Gamespot shifting to pay to read membership plans. Pay to read the review, pay to download the demo, find out you like it, but you are broke now and can't pay to buy the game :-lolThank God we have AVSim for the flight world still!Ray

You know, everyone in this community would benefit if you, the readers, spread the word. There are many authors out there that do not upload to AVSIM, and if they want to serve the expanding community here, you as their users and fans need to convince them to upload at AVSIM. Everyone can help. If you know an author who does not upload here, send him/her a polite note and ask them to do so. We have the storage capacity, the bandwidth and we are totally free (and will continue to be)! So, spread the word and help out, and maybe then users will have unfettered access to all files here.But please... Do not take it upon yourself to download a file from somewhere and upload an author's file on your own to AVSIM, UNLESS YOU HAVE SPECIFIC PERMISSION TO DO SO. Our file managers do NOT poach files from elsewhere and we really don't want our readers to do that either. If an upload is to come to AVSIM, we want the author of that file to upload it him/herself. That's the only proper way for files to find their way here, and hope you will respect that.

I wish all the sites worked this way-I purposely uploaded my Debonair file only on avsim-it was only 2 days later it appeared on fsplanet without my knowledge-although since it rated 5 stars there I guess I won't complain (maybe that is what the star rating system is about there). :-lol :(Avsim is simply the best site on the net-for numerous reasons including this one.http://members.telocity.com/~geof43/geofanim2.gif

>Exactly why I have nothing to do with FSplanet. >>Mike Stone Anyway - what is it with FSPLanet?. They really need to get a better a webpage designer. When I try to open up their mainpage, it takes literally ages to download (I only use a 56k modem) -- so generally, I don't bother going there at all. One day I decided to wait and see what happened - so I went away and made a cup of coffee . Eventually the home page finally fully downloaded -- but it was so graphically intensive that I could see why it took so long to download. I would never bother visiting their website again.I am fairly new to FSim (only 6 months) and have looked at all/most? of the associated websites and find that , by far , AVSIM kills them all. I must admit that I have often wondered why freeware authors bother to upload to FSim.com - it is very difficult to get into and has very little Editorial content compared to AVSIM. I think it must be a historical thing.Barry

FS Planet gets their stuff from other sites. I don't like that! I can't go there anymore. EVERYTIME I do go there, BOTH of my computers will lock up and I get this weird shi* come off the printer. I don't know what's attatched to that site, but it suck! I haven't been there in months. It use to be a regular upload and daily visit site. No more! You want it seen and posted for all to get FAST....post it on AVSIM. This site is manned for that 24/7!Don

The AVSIM front page and one click new file access has the competition way behind! I think it's pretty clear which three sites we like to visit the most.

Hey Don,I figured you dropped off the planet!!! The only place I visit anymore is AVSIM, You can't get in over at the other guys most of the time. The last airport I did was only loaded here. I just wish the library search was as friendly as FS.com's. Thats my only complaint.Take care buddy!Dale

I recently visited the "other site" and now you can't go a page without 3-4 obnoxious ad's popping up. Some of them even crash Internet Explorer. Not a good time. :-mad[TABLE BORDER=0][tr][td]

I am a freeware designer, and I must say I hate the way FSPLANET (Ferdy) steals freeware stuff and make many with it.My team latest release was Fouga CM170 Magister. In readme-file we require asking permission for upload. It is there because I just like to know where Fouga package is available. Ferdy just put Fouga in his site, he even don't bother to send a simple e-mail.I send message for Ferdy, I demand him to remove Fouga from FSPLANET, and that reply that I have no legal rights to demand this!.So this is how much Ferdy appreciate freeware designers, he think we are here just for making many to him.There is no need to visit in FSPLANET. Everything in that site is stealed somewhere, so files occure day or two later. I am sure that you don't like to make that kind of man any richer...
