General Sales Support / A few more notches of flaps
« on: August 16, 2019, 05:59:08 PM »
Dear visitors, customers and friends,

when I retired I had hopes of continuing at least FSAddon as one of my many activities, dropping many others. And I still intend to..... but reality has shown that I now have to spend MUCH more time on my private life, my dear wife, our new friends and the village community here in Italy.
Then there is the extensive travel we do on discovering all these fine historic towns, wonderful restaurants, gorgeous vistas.....

And last but not least, age plays its ugly part. Summers here are very hot and most certainly limiting what I can do at my PC, while the house is very cold in winter, except a few areas. We cannot heat it all I'm afraid.

All combined throws a major spanner in the wheel of my 365 x 24 support I used to provide. (Yes, I was a true workaholic). 2 weeks ago we left for a short holiday in Switzerland, upon return the 10-day village fest started where we are volunteer helpers, in between I got some nasty stomach virus..... resulting in not even turning my PC on for over 16 days.
Something totally unheard of 3 years ago when I was ALWAYS on-line one way or other.

I will try and get rid of the backlog of e-mails first. But going forward PLEASE BE ADVISED that answers in the forum and via e-mail can take MUCH LONGER than you were used to. I am not getting any younger, I am NOT growing the business anymore, just maintaining it for the sake of existing customers and one or two developers still with me.

My main activity in flight simulation today is working on MY OWN home cockpit (first time in 35 years) and writing about flightsim on my blogs and elsewhere.

I IMMENSELY APPRECIATE all your support over the past 20 years and still hope to see you here, in my shop, at events and in forums from time to time. BUT JUST TAKE NOTE, I HAVE THROTTLED DOWN and will continue to do so.

Warmest regards from a sunny Italy,

Hi John, thanks for your message. Simon is a seasonal worker and has no internet access during his work in the bush. I think he is (or almost is) back home now. I will draw his attention to your remarks.

Kind regards,

Sorry, I don't know John Gabbert, can't help you there. :-(

FAQ / Do FSAddon products work in P3D ?
« on: March 01, 2018, 04:05:30 PM »
Up until P3D V3 most of them did.

There are some threads on the support forums indicating if and how. But with Version 4 of Prepar3D it seems to have become a problem.
Unfortunately our products were all designed for and tested on FSX SP2 and that's the only guarantee we can give you. They will work fine there. Some will work in P3D, others (in V4) may not.
Since yours truly is retired now, FS development has taken a back seat and real life took over. I am still trying to possibly update (some of) the products, but I cannot give you any timeframe for it. Sorry.

FAQ / Where did Misty Fjords go?
« on: March 01, 2018, 04:02:01 PM »
Misty Fjords was made for FS9 (FS2004), and its successor never finished (the author moved to another publisher). Since we cannot adapt the installer and the webshop is having problems with the serial number generation, I decided to take it down. Too much hassle.
If you STILL are bent on getting it for your old FS9 installation - after all it was an awesome product ! - you can contact me directly and I'll provide a download manually.

I will see if I can convert them again. But won't have time until later next week I'm afraid.

With what tool did you try to unzip them? You are the first with THAT particular issue :-)

I converted them from Corel format, in which the originals were made. Maybe something went awry there .... Will have a look as soon as I have a few minutes to spare.

FAQ / I didn't get a download link or serial number
« on: December 23, 2017, 11:18:07 AM »
Well..... you actually probably DID.... but you didn't see it.  :P

The thing is.... the actual shop is based on Shopify software, but the files are stored with an other c0ompany, so you get TWO emails. One with the order confirmation..... and one with the downloads and serials. The latter is being sent from 'Sendowl' .... so please check your spam folder !

If you still cannot find it then by all means, drop me an email:


General Sales Support / Christmas Discount and how to get it
« on: December 23, 2017, 11:15:22 AM »
Hi all,
I have received a number of inquiries about how to actually GET that 50% discount. Unfortunately I don't know how to change the shop software..... and the way it works is that the customers (i.e. YOU) have to enter a DISCOUNT CODE on the last screen BEFORE paying.

The code you need to enter this time is 'christmas' ..... after that you will see the discounted total applied and that's what you'll pay.

The sales are valid from Dec 12th til January 1st !

Also, I officially retired back in October and that means I now have to spend more time doing other things than work..... like giving some attention to my dear wife for instance..... I continue the shop and my other FS activities of course (how could I stop after 45 years !!??), but it will be more on a 'hobby basis' and that means response and support may take some more time now and then. I beg your pardon :-)

Merry Christmas!!

Not sure Simon can run P3D..... I don't have it installed myself anymore.... things need to be set up after our emigration. Will take some time I'm afraid.

Simon might be able to help you..... but he always has problems getting enough bandwidth to get on the forum. I'll shoot him a note.

Neither Simon nor I have P3D installed at this time, sorry....
