    I already do that, after a fashion. When I'm browsing, I LEFT click my mouse, and select "Open link in new tab".

    I keep doing that on any addon that takes my fancy.

    When I've finished browsing, I'll have all the ones I'm interested in opened in new tabs. It's thin just a case of looking at each one, deciding whether to download it or not, and either closing the tap or clicking the download button. Then I move on to each one in turn, until I've decided which I want, and which I can live without. Now I have a set of open tabs, each with a "Download" button that needs clicking. I rapidly run through each one, start each download off, and then head back to the first again. Once it's actually at least started downloading, I can then either download dependencies, or close that tab.

    Looks a little complex, but I can download enough addons using this technique so that I get to the stage where it starts to ask me if I'm a human or a robot! (about 20 concurrent downloads, from memory).

    I must add, my downloads are usually well out of sync with most of the world, because I'm kicking them off in Australia, so the servers won't be carrying as much traffic as they do in the European / North American peak times.

    I do the same thing too John. It helps when I run into an issue and have to reinstall MSFS for what ever reason. I will then start over with the MODS. I got to the point one time the downloader complained to me. I have about 15 extra tabs open. The downloader started making me prove I wasnt a robot LOL

    I don't know if this would be possible but when looking through the site it would be cool if you could mark items for download and then hit download to get the files instead of looking, clicking download repeat. It would make it possible to be on the site and browse and then mark items while on the site and then get multiple downloads when done looking. Almost like a shopping cart where the items are added to the cart and then one click to get the items you wanted.

    Check your event viewer after a crash or freeze. Goto the application log and look for any errors. This will give you an idea of what is the possible issue. Also make sure the mods you have installed are verified for the current version of MSFS. Lastly and the most painful way is to add each mod on its own to see what the sim maybe crashing on.

    Since MSFS 2020 came out we had really empty airports void from traffic and now there seems to be two add ons out that now make the world a little more realistic. I have installed and have been using AIG so far. Its a hands on type add on that needs updates etc and does randomly shut down but its still in "beta" and is free.
    The other is the new Simple Traffic and from what I have read and have seen online so far seems to be more of a fire and forget add on. Install it and it just does what it does. Also, the price is not really bad at all.

    I run several add ons like The Sky park and Lukes Air tool so having AIG open and running with random shutdowns at this point I am starting to lean towards Simple Traffic but was looking for some input.

    If you have Simple Traffic is there a performance hit and how is it overall?

    Thanks all in advance.

    Very cool video! It really amazes me if you look at the first MS flight sim and where it is now. I have flown every version from when it came out. This version is what I think we all have been waiting for. Also cost me a pretty penny to get it to run on Ultra.

    Anyone having this issue lately? Just tried starting MSFS up and it gets past the update screen then just shuts down with no errors except for this in the event viewer.

    I am really hoping not to reinstall again. It would be the 5th time since MSFS 2020 has been released.


    Make sure you goto content manager and download all the updates there. I noticed after the update that only standard was installed and then in content manager it installed the deluxe version plus pretty much everything else.
