Hi,

This free tool is now available for public testing.

This is beta software so do not install unless you are comfortable with beta software and understand there may be bugs and errors. You may also need to manually replace files as updates are posted in this thread.

To Download:

To download, run this version of the Flight1 Agent installer. It will update your existing Agent if it is already installed. It also adds the F1AddonCloud.exe program to the installation. This will be available as a separate shortcut on the desktop.

Note that there is no detailed manual. For general usage and information, read http://www.flight1.com/F1AddonCloud.pdf" rel="nofollow - http://www.flight1.com/F1AddonCloud.pdf .

About the tool:

FS2020 is a major change in the simulation platform that many of us have been accustomed to. This tool builds on the Flight1 Agent to work directly with FS2020.

Use this forum for testing, ideas, bug reports, questions, or comments.

Here is a picture of the cloud. We have preloaded some commonly free to share addons already. You can install them if you like.

This looks both interesting and very complicated..

The difference between the Cloud and the Addon Manager is not immediately clear to me..

Hi Burt,

You will see it very shortly. It is a completely different screen that you toggle to.

Edit: It is now released. Give it a try!

I take it the the "Fast Startup" doesn't work yet?
Got it installed and do you run the programme first, or does it just automatically run and does what it's supposed to do...as it still loads at same speed as before.

It will put a new shortcut on your desktop that says "FS2020 Fast Startup". It will have the same Flight1 icon as the Addon tool. It should then load FS2020 without the startup videos. Note that it has only been tested on the version from the Microsoft Store. It has not been tested on the Steam version yet.

You can try this test shortcut creator and see if it works.

http://www.flight1software.com/SteamShortcut.zip" rel="nofollow - http://www.flight1software.com/SteamShortcut.zip (no need to run as admin)

Just unzip and run. It will place a new Steam shortcut on your desktop. See if it works or if it still shows the startup videos.
