Time Limit At Flightsim.com!

Thu Feb 21, 2002 10:30 am

Hi,

The other day I was downloading aircraft and panel for my Flight Simulator 2002 and i was kicked off. There is now a two hour time limit for a 24 hour period. It resets every 24 hours. It is nice that maybe it will decrease the "All Nodes Busy" message but some of the downloads take almost two hours.

Has anyone else noticed this? Has this been effective long?

If started the download before your time is up it will still download, it just means you can not select any more things to download for another 24hrs.

It has been like this for about a month and a half. I think its a great idea and I have been getting in much sooner even during peak times.

I have been to both of the sites you mentioned above and Flightsim.com is far more superior.

fs.com is not superior. In fact, I don't go there much anymore myself.
Their search engine is a bit better, but that's about it.

Okey, I think they just want that everybody get the chance to download files but I have also to mention
that avsim and other sites are not bad at all and as Jwenting already said flightsim.com's search engine's presentation is a bit better but that's all!!!

Hi,

I have been to the other sites. The only seem to ofer download packages like two aircraft with panel. I like Flightsim.com because it lets you mix and match panels and aircraft. Is this true, or am I just not looking in the right places at the other sites?

Why don't you just get the First Class Membership? It's only $30 (lousy 2.50 a month?) Then you'll also never get a busy signal.

So you don't have to worry about it being busy.
