Hmm.. That would be an 8+

It's got loads of files, I like the way you can search between popularity (or rather: downloads), date author etc. etc. but I HATE it when All Nodes are Busy!

I would give a 6 because of VERY LOW successful log-in chances

It seems it is always a royal pain to log into... always getting that all nodes busy crap. I give it a 5. IMO, Simviation.com is better, but their search system isn't as great.

If you happen to try to log in when all the nodes are busy then just keep hitting the refresh button and you will login as soon as someone leaves...usually in less then 10 clicks. Oh and I give it a 10.

Yes, I perused flightsim.com today and I have FS2002 and I would like to know how to get aircraft into the files after downloadiing. What folders do I import them into and such. A real brief instruction would be greatly appreciated!

A 9! I love flightsim.com and even have a number of addons uploaded for FS98, but the longins! It's a ten if you can get in, a 9 if you can't for a while.

I'm actualyl considering a first class membership.

Also, on flightsim.com, look for Laysan Island, Kaneohe Bay, and Kane'ohe!

Just go on during off-peak times, and there should be no problem. I would give it a 10.

Man..I've been using flightsim.com for over a year now and have never got all nodes busy once...ever...infact it suprised me when people mentioned it...I guess I must be in a time zone when it is an off-peak time..
I GIVE IT A 10 OUT OF 10 BECAUSE IT HAS ALL THE AIRCRAFT I DESIRE

I love flightsim.com caus´it´s offering the widest range of scenery/aircraft/flight plans etc. on the WWW.I´ll give it a 10.

As for the log-in -problem just don´t stop trying till you´re accessing to the site (as already mentioned above it takes around 5 to 10 attempts depending on the hour .)

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I would give it a 9 because they have a lot of aircraft and files but I don't like it when it has no TWA or American Airlines stuff. They used to have TWA planes until AA bought them and they had gotten taken off. And if you want to send them something you need to download this ftp and it's hard to do too. They are still really good and their search is bad and good too.

I'd give it a 5. It would be better, but when I try and login in there at 11:00P.M (EST) It ALWAYS says, All Nodes Busy. I think they don't like me. Crying

I'll give it a 10+ but the 2 days ago it took me about 20 minutes to log on, it was down to a 1.
