    Important: Liveries and the new A32NX Update

    Starting today, FlyByWire will begin packaging and distributing the A32NX as a separate aircraft from the default Asobo A320neo. This only affects the development and experimental branches of the A32NX - not the stable branch yet. However, with this update, liveries made for the default A320neo will no longer function in the new FlyByWire package. Liveries will need to be converted by their respective authors. There will be a simple livery conversion tool released by FlyByWire within a week from now, but until then, we recommend that you do not update your A32NX to the new development or experimental version if you want to keep using all liveries here on Flightsim.to! Flightsim.to has created a new FBW A32NX category. We ask all creators to upload their A32NX compatible files to this category. At the latest, when the stable version of the A32NX is also updated, only these liveries will work. The other A320neo liveries will of course continue to work on the default Microsoft A320neo.


    1.5 Million Unique Users

    Flightsim.to started back in August 2020. Since then, this project has continued to grow. We are more than pleased to announce that until now 1.5 million unique users all around the world have visited us. A horrendous number! Thank you for your support!


    Image Upload in Direct Messaging

    From now on you can also send images via your mailbox on Flightsim.to. Just click on the small camera icon to the left of the send button to add screenshots or images to your message.


    Email Notification of Missed Messages

    Starting today, we will finally notify you by email if you have an unread message in your inbox at Flightsim.to. This only applies to messages that have been unread for more than 24 hours. So you won't miss anything anymore! You can unsubscribe from such email notifications at anytime in your User settings.


    User Gallery - Add your own images

    With "User Gallery" we are now introducing the possibility to upload your own screenshots and images to mods and add-ons. Until now, only authors themselves could upload images of their add-on. But now, you can attach your screenshots to a file too! Just click on "User Gallery" at the respective item page and upload your screenshot to showcase the mod or the fun you're having while using it.

    Starting today, we will finally notify you by email if you have an unread message in your inbox at Flightsim.to. This only applies to messages that have been unread for more than 24 hours. So you won't miss anything anymore! You can unsubscribe from such email notifications at anytime in your User settings.

    Sorry to hear that, and you are right, it was not clever by us to implement this button without a double-warning. :whistling: However, this has been changed. Clicking the button now opens up a warning popup and asks the user to confirm again.


    While we are unfortunately not able to recover your history, you don't have to download everything again. You should be able to select "Add to Already Downloaded" on a files Action dropdown to quickly add it back to your list again, without actually re-downloading all the files. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    We provide you with two links, one is the link that you mentioned (liveries.to) and the other is the flightsim.to one. While flightsim.to is the main link and it is also highlighted in the popup, the second link is for dedicated sharing purposes, as told per the popup as well. You're right, since this page is hosted on a different domain, users are not logged in when they open up liveries.to. Liveries.to is for dedicated share purposes, so it is a page that shows only your livery images, description and download button, without everything else. You could embed this on a website for example or send it to people who want just to download the livery straight-ahead, without browsing through comments and other stuff.

    Sorry for the late reply, I guess it is because you initially categorized this as a Question and not as Feedback, so we accidentally overlooked or forgot to answer. I like the idea and it is certainly a very useful feature for many users. We have added this to our to-do list and have it on our roadmap. But at this time, I can't tell to which extent and whether or when we will be able to implement it. It needs some investigation first and it is not top-priority by now, but on the list.


    By the way, on the Recent Uploads page, there is already a possibility to kind of filter the entries you browse. The dropdown allows you to select a category from which you want to see the new entries. Might be a little workaround in the meantime.


    Thanks for your feedback.

    Hi there. We're running servers in US and EU. Probably you were affected by a temporary network overload on Sunday. This can happen from time to time, especially on weekends, when there is a lot of simultaneous traffic. But as you can check on our status page - https://status.flightsim.to/ - we had an uptime of 99.955% in the past 3 months, which is quite fair. Please keep in mind this is still a hobby project and we don't do it full-time. Of course, we try to ensure a good experience as much as possible.


    If the problem persists, please contact us via email or ticket and we will investigate further. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Indeed, I heard from a lot of people that they are not really satisfied with the plane. Hopefully more users become aware of this issue and the author will be able to push some fixes and improves. Best of luck with your refund!

    Yes, if you can not find it anymore, it means it has been removed either by the author himself or by the website. If the author decided to delete his file, there is nothing we can do about it. In this specific case, the file was rejected from our - the website staff - side, as it turned out that it was illegaly shared payware and thus pirated content, which we and copyright laws don't allow.

    If we import KML files, we'll have some problems updating them - unless you're talking about a finished product with no future updates. If that's the case, it's a good idea, but I don't know how we'd be able to update efficiently if you add new airports to the collection. Besides that, I don't think the scenery map is desgined for this mass of airports. Perhaps we should only include the hand-made, dedicated sceneries instead of just minor lightning fixes to avoid flooding. It would certainly be anything but appropriate to include every single airport in the map.


    I fixed the issues mentioned here. As stated above, we'll be working on mobile layout fixing constantly, which may take some time, as the website itself on desktop is still under development as well. However, feel free to report more critical bugs which completely disturb user experience by creating a ticket and we'll prioritize them. Thanks for the hints again :saint:

    Mass or bulk uploads have significant disadvantages and have a negative impact on the user flow on the site. We only display a limited number of add-ons directly on the homepage, and these should be used conscientiously and evenly among all creators as part of a fair use. It contradicts usability if a single user takes up practically the entire start page and category's listing in just a few minutes. So, mainly for the sake of clarity, we are obliged to limit the number of uploads per hour. But there are also security-related and performance-based reasons for this, obviously. 3 per hour should be feasible. However, we will consider raising the limit to 5. Thank you for your understanding.
