Hey guys, We all know about (and maybe use) those fancy, complex, award-winning, visually stunning, high-priced addons, which are frequently featured in YouTube videos or enquired about in the Avsim forums. I am curious, however, if there are addons or tools for FSX, which are rarely mentioned here, because they might only appeal to certain simmers or do stuff, that seems unnoticeable (and yet might be important for some). So, feel free to post, what you believe to be the most underrated addon/tool for FSX (whether free- or payware): What's its name? What does it do? And why is that important to you? For me, it would be Flusifix. It allows you to do a bunch of stuff (fixing some minor issues, tweaking lots of values in fsx.cfg and aircraft.cfg), but most important to me is, that you can change the AI taxi speed: Since I like to fly with lots of AI aircraft around, increasing taxi speed for AI aircraft makes them vacate the runway faster, allowing me to actually land at busy airports (and not having to go around all the time) and leads to less congestion on the ground (though making AI aircraft movement look less realistic). Cheers, Dom
pilecan posted a topic in Forum de la Communauté francophone de Simulateur de volBonjour à tous et à toutes! Après un long silence j'ai le plaisir de vous annoncer que je viens de publier sur Avsim mon dernier bébé après checkplane.com. C'est un lanceur pour FSX qui permet de choisir les scènes que l'on veut plutôt que FSX initialise toutes vos scènes ce qui prend un temps fou si vous en avez beaucoup. Un outil qui peut vous aider si vous avez java 1.7 installé sur votre ordinateur. J'ai fait un site web français et anglais pour expliquer comment ça marche: http://www.fslauncher.com Disponible sur Avsim aussi. http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fsxutil&DLID=190241 Bon vol et vos commentaires seront appréciés.

Joe Flyer2 posted a topic in MS FSX | FSX=SE | P3D Simconnect ForumI've recently wanted to place scenery through the Object Placement tool provided by the Missions Creations feature of SDK. I was excited when I learned I can do this... but a myriad of problems took me off guard. I first noticed this when the "Tools" tab in the Menu Bar did not show up. I researched to find a cause; some people said it had to do with the dll.xml file; some said it had to do with a folder path mismatch. Some even said it was because the SDK and FSK Service Packs didn't match. So for the past five hours I've been trying to crack the code (literally and figuratively). I made the proper edits to the dll.xml file (change "True" values to "False), I ensured the folderpaths in the dll.xml file were correct, and I ensure I had SP2 for SDK installed. Then, almost and hour ago, I stumbled across a post on FlightSim.com that seemed to tie everything together. I went to the extent of copying the SimConnect.xml file into the ...\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX folder. *link removed* Then, just as the post said, I copied the SimConnect.ini file in to the Documents\Flight Simulator X Files folder path so I could see the SimConnect Diagnostic Output window. After following the directions of multiple threads, disabling add-on scenery, disabling aicarriers, FSUIPC, FsCaptain, FsInn/FsCopilot, and making sure the dll.xml was up to par with many suggestions, I had hopes of the "Tools" tab appearing on the Menu Bar. Of course, with my luck, still no cigar. I am just tired of trying pretty much everything I could find to no avail. Basic problem: Tools tab won't appear, and the Service Packs keep mismatching, even though I made sure I had the latest one. NOTE: I have FSX Acceleration, downloaded from Microsoft. For this reason, I can't access the disks' contents because I don't have the disks. *I will post the SimConnect diagnostic message as soon as possible. It should shed a lot of insight towards the situation, especially since there are some of you out there who could read these messages much better than I can. Thanks in advance! I really have become aggravated from the complexity of this situation. From, Joe EDIT: And on top of that, I can't figure out how to attach an image. EDIT (again): You know what? I'll just email the diagnostics message to whoever needs it to provide a helpful response. AVSIM is started to get difficult with file attachments.
