Where To Download Aircraft For FS2004 For Free?

Thu Sep 11, 2003 4:22 am

I know about flightsim.com, simviation.com and avsim.com also. But I was wondering if there are other places to download very good full motion planes, scenery, sounds, etc for FS04? Also, can you change registrations on the planes in FS04?

I believe you can change registrations on the default aircraft.

You can change the reg# as long as it's not part of the model. If you try to display a FS2k4 registration on a FS2k2 plane it will probably just look silly with two sets of letters in the same place, since 2002 a/c often have the reg# included as part of the model.

You've got the main download sites there, there isn't many more great ones. Here are some sites, but they're limited:

http://www.fsplanet.com
http://www.alliedfsgroup.com

FSPlanet is run by a bunch of crooks.

http://www.avsim.com
http://www.fsnordic.net
http://www.simviation.com are far better.

I never use FSPlanet, I hate their search page. Why are they crooks? I remember hearing something about them but can't remember what.

Ashley,

I think the fsplanet people just take files off of other sites (avsim, flightsim) without permission and put them on their own.

Msh is correct.
Not only that, they actually threaten freeware authors that they'll do just that unless their products get offered for upload at fsplanet.
They also sell CDs with freeware without permission of the authors.
They refuse to remove files when asked to do so.
They put things on their site even if the redistribution instructions specifically state that's not allowed.

I THINK they even remove such notices.

Yeah, your best bet is (I've gotta plug my company  Smile/happy/getting dizzy) either http://www.avsim.com or http://www.flightsim.com. By far the best two in the field!
