Love it. Any chance of a tab to show what's currently downloaded/in-use? Makes it a bit easier to ensure I'm not doubling up/waiting for unnecessary download times.

It can be easily DL and decompressed.

By the way, I use AddonLinker and have a lot of directories and folders, is it possible to make the installation folder in a tree in WindSailor so that I can easily select the DL destination?

What does "Set custom installation folder per package (Addons linker compatible)" mean?

Thank you very much! I've used WindSailor twice with MSFS AddOn Linker and it worked perfect.

I have one suggestion... have a status message display at the end of an update to say it was completed. I 'm not seeing any kind of completion message. There is a black box in the lower left corner of my screen with a spinning white circle. After the updates were complete, that white circle was still spinning. I didn't see a status displayed, unless it was hidden behind a window or something like that.

Thank you again! This is the 2nd app of yours that is very useful/functional! I'll be visiting the coffee/tip jar soon 😊

EDIT: just noticed the black box must be from Flightsim.to. Just saw it again after WindSailor was unloaded.

I love your Application. But would it be possible to add the name of the Addon next to the Progress-Bar while Downloading and in the Window where I select the folder to install? If I start more downloads at the same time it is not possible to see which download is for which addon.

Edit: I saw that there have been suggestions like "Ask for the folder before start downloading" on your Discord server. This would be the best solution for this I think 😊 Great Job!

Thks for this great tool 😉 Would it be possible to check for dependencies and automatically install them ?

this happens now and again any clue what causes it

https://gyazo.com/82b9b1dfb8ad28ae2668ce6c0caeeba6

If your Addons program uses sub folders such as Airports/USA/Nevada will it download it automatically to the correct folder.? I know this is a reach but just asking.

Help

app crashed what does this mean

I cant send a pic so ill read it:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

When I update an old addon, does this uninstall the old addon?

I don't know how to do it, the old folder must have the same name than the new one?

Thanks a lot

Hi! You're writing "Download and install packages automatically".Does that mean I have to do nothing,and your program will look into my Community folder and update the files without me,looking through the website and click on all the download buttons??

Thx very much - very useful.

A couple of questions please:

  1. Is it completely removing the old version and installing the new? or does it replace whats there?
  2. Is there a limit to the number of mods/locations the program is keeping track of?

Once again many thx - much appreciated.

I could not be happier with this! For me, its the perfect balance of taking away the tedious without being too intrusive. You kept it simple and I appreciate that. Over the last year, I have seen more than a few mods start off as perfect solutions and time savers, but then get additional features, and a few more, and pretty soon its rearranging your whole Community folder. I'm pretty sure that is exactly how Cyberdyne made Skynet self-aware and Arnold is getting a bit too long in the tooth to dress up as a Terminator and save us. So not only is it a cool program, you are postponing the Human vs A.i apocalypse. Nice work!

VERY VERY NOICE

just one suggestion

can u add tabs so I can install multiple liveries

ty 😊

i get this when trying to install https://gyazo.com/54a3893b3a5e4ca68b385e7475dc38b5

Thanks for the updated version. I have been testing it and it certainly seems to be viable for MSFS Addons Linker users now, and a lot faster than I can do things manually.

I have a few requests/suggestions that may have already been asked for, or are planned:

1) A favourites list with editable link names so that users can enter descriptive text of their own choice for the link.

For example I only have one mod from the SimMarket.com website, it is the Bijan Habashi - 4 Season Pack.

So the website link is https://simmarket.com and I want to give that link the display name:

        SimMarket - 4 Season Pack

I also might want to edit that descriptive name at a later date.

2) For the browser a page Back and Forward function could be useful.

3) It would be convenient to be able select and open installation folders from the browser to view/edit folders etc. (Browser opens Windows File Explorer).

Thanks again for this very useful tool.

V 0.4 now replaces my normal flightsim.to workflow. With the addition of the selectable subfolders this tool becomes fully MSFS Addon Linker compatible.

Absolutely stunning work so far and super useful.

The flightsim.to responsibles should totally consider pitching this as an (semi-)official download-tool

I would like it just to auto update the mods.

I can live without the browser functionality which triggers anyone and is pretty useless I dare say? Because nobody wants to use another browser for mods... we either browse on our normal browser or after following links from community.

Starting another browser just for mods is unergonomic imho.

All we need it is to just after we downloaded the mods to be able either automatically or after manually pointing the URL to go and update.

Actually I would like this software to be flightsim.to official tool.

Anyone else used Vortex mod manager?
