MSFS add-ons - 01/08/21 12:51 PM

Might as well start a thread for the mighty MSFS and it´s 3rd party add-ons which Iam sure will grow to be big!

I´ll start with a free add-on...

FSPM VFR Map:
FSPM VFR Map download site

It´s a free moving map with a handy teleport function. Map integrates into your top menu with no other app needed. You can still use your GPS map.



Enjoy!

I use Little Nav Map.

It's free, comprehensive, and links to MSFS in beta build (unless that changed recently and now it's in main build). Very handy to have a real-world map on the other monitor, also shows you a terrain profile visualisation too so you can see how close to the hills you're going to get. Also it's pretty good for navigating around an airport.

A small one I'd recomend is
https://github.com/kaosfere/msfs-toolbar-nohandle/releases
It stops the tool bar handle from keep appearing at the top of the screen whenever you move the mouse.
the tool bar will still appear when you want it to by moving the mouse to the top of the screen though.

Thanks both. Yes I have Little Nav Map in use with P3D, will have to try with MSFS.

Not a big fan of Carenado, but they seem to have gone the "better" way with MSFS. The Mooney M20R Ovation is a atractive package for analog single prop GA...

Detailed performance mid page:

No stall/spin characteristics but not sure if that is a MSFS thing for now.

Wished they would have gone with a traditional analog cockpit but it is what it is.

Are there any add-ons that show frequencies of ILS and VOR on the fly?
I really miss that feature from FSX, I'm normally in the air before I remember, if I there's something that doesn't involve searching on my phone it would be great.
There have been a couple of flights recently where I've been caught in 0/10 visibility, had to pause the game search the frequency for an ILS approach in VR with an icing windscreen. Very intense I have to say.

The first post of this thread shows the FSPM VFR Map free add-on. This basically is like SkyVector´s map...

On min8:17 you can see a detailed view of the map as would be with SkyVector with it´s radials/nav-aids/VOR´s etc...



You can also check Little Navmap (also free):

The mod dose not overite the default XCub Crafter, nor dose it add a new airframe. If you want to stop using it, remove it from the Community folder. Livery´s are a seperate download from there add-on page. They also have stand-alone moded versions available like the XCUB TUNDRA.

In order to use Navigraph Charts (which is in beta) for MSFS 2020, you need to follow instructions on the below link...

Navigraph forum:

Of course you need to have a active Navigraph account and a subscription to charts/FMS.

SWS (Sim Works Studio) Zenith CH701 STOL has been update to version v1.10...

SWS Support:

SWS Zenith CH701 STOL version history

There´s seems to be a issue (on my end) were your MSFS installation path (if different) is no excepted by the Installer. Just choose the default MSF installation path. Even if you did install your MSFS on a different drive, MSFS creates a default path on your C/: drive with links to your choosen installation drive, so it will still end up on your choosen Installation path.

Glad they fixed this cool STOL AC thumbsup

Been waiting for some older birds to fly... I won't buy any 'glass cockpit' aircraft, not my scene at all.
I like the early Spitfires best, but I'll get round to buying this one!

Nice.

I´ll wait a bit so they can iron out whatever bug lefovers remain. While I don´t have a clue as to if MSFS will have working armament in the long run, I do wish it does at least in the air. Might as well have ground targets and AA too biggrin
