“MFS Addon Collector” Automatically Extracts, Analyses, Tests, Tags, Rates, Updates, Links (to their web page) and classifies your addon collection into Airports, Aircraft, Sceneries, Liveries, Missions, Discovery flights, Bush trips, Landing challenges, Training flights, Flight plans, Sound and Aircraft enhancements, divides them into meaningful categories you select, based on their types, features, location, developer, creation date, version, relevant tags, source archive, problematic issues etc, associating them in a number of useful ways, tests them to make sure they don't prevent the simulator from loading, organizes their disk folder hierarchy as you specify, link the ones you select to the simulator (based on their specific title, category or your presets), automatically compose the shortest flight plans between their locations and statically presents, dynamically tracks and visually logs (in a web page) your flights among them on one of 50 styles of maps, letting you also drag and drop your aircraft anywhere on face of the earth.

For easy accessibility this information gathered is presented either as a categories tag tree, a thumbnailed information blocks list, an editable, sortable, searchable, multi-filtered grid, a simple edit form, and as location pins, path tacks, object buttons and area symbols on a map.

Amazing how much this addon does. It is really great, thank you!

Is there any way to accomplish bulk tagging? ie: selecting multiple indexes and adding/removing a common tag for all?

Aha! States! Many countries have states, or their equivalent, including Australia, Great Britain, Eire, France, Germany, Brazil, and most of the republics that made up the old USSR (they are called Oblasts).

Pretty please?

Isnt it quite simmilar to MSFS Addon Linker?

Message from the developer: The context menu that appears when right clicking an addon contains "Shuffle" option which lets you replace thumbnails which are not appropriate for their addons or just plain ugly. The thumbnail would not be updated only for you, but for all new users of the application & for all later addons refreshes; Therefore please use it wisely - for yours and all other users' benefit.

I wonder it this is this the only app that can get data from Asobo's "bespoke" airports and airport bought via Store. That's a very much appreciated feature. I wish you could teach the techique for the developers of Volanta, LittleNavMap or other apps that try to display addon airports.

It should be somewhere but I do not find the information: How to manage multiple input sources for sceneries ? I have sceneries spltted in 2 SSD and one HDD.

Thanks again for your wonderful worlk for the community.

Hello, is there a way to disable Addons via the program instead of just deleting?

Hi Shay

Just FYI, on each of the last 2 days (new version) your app has crashed on close (showing as not responding) and has taken my whole system with it (I can't call up task manager to close it, and I can't power down). I have had to use my power button to close down my pc. Not sure why. Just thought you should know.



Message from the developer: The latest release (7) uses art painting as thumbnails for all addons. To use realistic thumbnails instead, go to the "List" section in the Settings tab & uncheck "Art Thumbnails" option.

hi, looking good, but i have some custom and by some vendors made symlinks. will it see everything? i don't need control by soft. but i need check some errors by the soft. is ti possible?

Message From the Developer: On restart, last release presents a splash screen of "Art Edition" which is coming soon, but not yet released; My mistake..

Valuable tool!

Just did the update, no issues. Went ahead and did a virus scan, and no issues. Seems to be all good!

HI Shaykatzir, thanks for your contributions...just for you to know: something wrong with today's version of your tool as well...it won't install...I wouldn't know why...thanks again and kind regards Thomas

Message from the developer: Users of releases 6.5.0 - 6.5.1 should upgrade to the latest release which solves a serious bug

Message from the developer: Next release of the Collector (which will be published later this week) would add a recommendations tab which shows the highest ratings addons per archetype a user currently doesn't have.

Does this app show an alert or highlight when a newer version of a Community addon is available for download?

If not, is this feature being planned? I would like to know when my addons have an update.

Hey, still a very amazing tool!

Is it possible to manually exclude packages from deep analysis?

Because, for example, the "FS Birds" packs take hours to finish :/ (https://secure.simmarket.com/south-oak-co-fs-birds-europe-west-msfs.phtml)

Message from the developer (not relevant to new users):

This week i had implemented a new List tab feature that opens a web browser with the page an addon was loaded from (if available). For the app to find those pages - you have to do a full deep refresh.

I have started it first yesterday, and was not really firm with it (choosing for an example DACH region but I cant find the way how to do it). But the main problem: Today I've seen that this software creates new folders and its picking random files und put it into it. Now I need many hours to put the files back to the origin folder. Strange, too: Sometimes I can move the files back, sometimes not because the files was maybe copyed by the software. Now I have chaos. I have installed it because It was looking that I can easy update my many addon files..

These items are currently on the list and will be processed soon!
Suggestion, bugs and ideas for the future.
