Sharing PlanG and FS X Flight Plans

Recommended Posts

What's the best way to pass on to others, via a post, one or more detailed Flight Plans, in PlanG and FSX format, that I've created for the Dam Buster Mission?

Peter,

 

Plan-G / FSX flight plans are generally small file sizes, but if you have many flight plans, packaging them using a file compression tool, such as WinZip or 7-Zip, is a good idea.

 

You will need to compress them using WinZip or 7-Zip to add them to a post on the Forum or via a PM.

 

Cheers

Andrew

If I may add to Andrew's post, instead of adding the plans into a thread you could post an announcement of a new available download, this should include a description about the flightplans, their purpose and any pictures, then just add the files to the download section.

 

Any compiled folder should include not only the required files but also a readme file (.txt) that re-explains what the files are for but also any installation information.:)

Thanks, guys. Still getting to know the site. Just now I discovered the "File Library" area, with its prompt to "Submit a File" which I guess is what I was looking for. Yep, I'll package a ZIP file with just one plan to start with, including a text DOC file, to make sure I'm doing the right hing, and also make a post notifying I've done so.

As one who has posted once or twice in the File Library it may not be necessary for you to make a post announcing the submittal to the Library.  That should happen all by itself, but if the automatic one does not explain it sufficiently, feel free to add more.

Yeah, Tim and I are financial geniuses.  What business plans we have - we work hard and give the stuff away for free, but expect to make it up on volume.

I knew there was something wrong with my business model. Free. Obviously not right. I really need to get to know this site better. You've helped me with everything else, so no doubt there is a Forum Topic on how to make TerraBucks out of this... Yours, in grateful anticipation... Funta (and if you didn't get it, Funta=PHunter, phonetically). Rgds, Peter!!
