Bushtalk Radio

Bushtalk Radio is a community driven project with the aim to fill the world of MSFS with thousands of interesting landmarks, POIs and local radio stations! Each POI has a unique audio tour that is automatically played based on your in-game location.

We have audio tours for all in-game POIs (including all World Update POIs) as well as thousands of community created content with more being added every day: national parks, forests, islands, active volcanoes, historical battles - there's something for everyone.

Users can add custom locations and write their own audio tours. Just write an interesting, witty script and we'll create the audio tour for you. Not the creative type? Autogenerate one with our Wikipedia Import tool, we won't judge you. We want to introduce players to amazing locations around the world. Add them as part of your next bush trip or fly aimlessly and stumble into something special.

This addon allows you to connect to Bushtalk Radio from inside your cockpit. Users of the old external client should upgrade to this instead.

Geting started with Bushtalk Radio
  • Make an account at https://bushtalkradio.com and log in. Make sure this browser window stays open (do not minimise it) as the audio tours are played through your browser in the background.
  • Download this client and drag and drop the folder into your Community folder
  • Download Bushtalk Radio Landmarks pack and drop the folder into your Community folder. This will allow you to see the POIs in-game and will be updated monthly with the latest community submissions. This isn't mandatory but it helps.
  • Once in your cockpit, open the Bushtalk Radio client from your cockpit toolbar and log in. You are now tuned in to Bushtalk Radio. Please note that since the last Sim Update, toolbar windows cannot run in the background so you will have to keep this window open/minimised.
  • Look for places you want to explore on our website, we tell you the most convenient airport to depart from, or make your own bush trip! The audio tours will play automatically as you approach a landmark.

I love the idea! How can I support the project?

Help us by creating as many high quality landmarks with well written audio tours. You can also help by promoting the project to fellow flightsimmers. Finally, if you really love what we're doing then help us pay for server costs. Any amount is welcome.

Is there a way to remember credentials when I first start the sim?

Navigate to the file: bushtalkradio-client\html_ui\InGamePanels\BushtalkClient\CustomPanel.js
Open in notepad
Add your credentials in between the double quotes as instructed

Why no changelog on the last update so we can estimate if it's worth spending the time updating our installation...

2 month(s) ago / Thanked by Bushtalk

This is like Waymarking and the Historic Marker Database of flight all rolled up into one. Most people fly all over the world or even in there own areas and never really know what interesting or historic places are just right under their wings. I highly recommend Bushtalk Radio to anyone, especially those interested in history. The setup is fairly straight forward if you follow the directions. As of yet, I haven't had any major issues such as the sim crashing as has been reported so perhaps that's been fixed. I felt it needed a more recent review and a few more stars. Thanks for an excellent, purposeful addition to the sim!

Very great app but sadly it induced CTD, my group uninstalled the plug-in and landmarks and we again had no CTD.

Love it love it! One thing though -- can you make the in-game toolbar icon a tad smaller? It's a little larger than the standard ones in the toolbar and in fact is so big that it goes outside of the bounding box of the toolbar icon container.

Awesome addon. A couple of suggestions for the next update - maybe have an option to automatically shorten a commentary (maybe to stop playing after 2 or 3 sentences - many of them drag on for too long). Also a possible bug that may need fixing is the local radio stations - no matter where I am flying it only gives me stations from the Seattle/Portland area.

Is the site up? I sucessfully made an account and tried to login but kept getting a 404 error. the address I was using was https://bushtalkradio.com/login?

So as of 3/9/2022, Post Sim Update 8, It seems that in order for the Client to update with the website, the Bushtalk Radio window needs to at least be open in the game. You can hit the + and minimize it, but it has to be open otherwise it does not update your position with the website/servers. Otherwise as long as its chilling open, everything seems to work as normal.

Hopefully this can be fixed in a later update but at least it's not a major issue causing it to not work at all.

Requiring a Patreon subscription to be able to add more than one or two POI per day seems like shooting yourself in the foot. It takes VOLUNTARY time and effort by users to add/create new POIs. Adding POIs enhances the product functionality for all users, so why hamstring the product like this :/ Also, I spent over half an hour editing a new POI (that didn't have its own wiki page), only to be told that I had reached my daily limit only AFTER I hit the save button, preventing me from saving it and wasting all my time! You should be telling users they have reached the limit when they first hit the + button to create a new POI, not when they try to save the completed form! On the whole, I feel like I am being punished for trying to add POIs :/

Seems not to connect to the web site after SU8

Not sure why, but this makes me crash to desktop when I hit fly. Sometimes it takes a few minutes, but it always crashes. I have no other mods/add ons installed (besides the bushmark radio landmarks). I have also tried uninstalling, and reinstalling just the client. It still crashes. I uninstalled and now my sim seems to work just fine.

dont work anymore , its a shame cause was a cool add on

I cant make login at your website, it always show error.http.401, i checked it many times and my password is 100% correct, how can i solve this problem?

having a problem with adding discoveries in new zealand, a lot of the pre defined text has invalid characters as it includes the word Māori and the ā fails validation but you can't edit the pre written words....

Still love the program though, its a 5 star app

Big fan since day 1, but the narration audio levels need to be significantly boosted (or offer a volume control) in order to not get drowned out in MSFS

Is this addon compatible with sim update 6?

Realy great add-on for MSFS 2020. I enjoy it very much and use it everytime. Also the feature of tuning in an music radio frequency gives it a thumbs up and a smile on my face.

The sound of the lady who is telling about the poi's could be a litte louder, especially if you view the surroundings outside the cockpit. Then the engine noice overruns the voice of the narrator and it's hard to follow, even with my headphones on.

Submitting interface is a mess, You really put effort in an article and then its deleted in the form. Daily limit is really annoying. A lot of airports missing.

Its a normally a great mod but now the limitations did become just ridiculous. First you could publish five landmarks per day for free (which was already on the low side) and now its only two per day (which is just not enough). Why?

Okay - loaded up the latest update and did a very quick check. Sim loaded okay and I was able to start a flight. As it was late here in UK didn't test thrpoughly but carrying on with a planned tour flight later which should give it a workout. Will post back here if any problems.

Since upodate 5, it does not work anymore for me. As soon as I log in, I lose all control over my plane. The program does not crash but I can no longer control my plane.
