Why is nobody flying on the servers?

It's a summer evening, yet all the servers are empty. What's up with that? How can we get the multiplayer mode of YS more active?

It's no fun flying alone. :(

YSFlight Videos

YouTube has updated their player, so I have updated the BBCode accordingly. I tried to apply the new BBCode to older posts, but not all were successful. You (or a moderator) will have to update old posts with the [youtube] BBCode. I like the new player, it makes even very old videos look somewhat mo...

Soji Question and Answer Session

Last batch sent. Sorry if I didn't get to your question but I tried to vary the questions as much as possible, as well as focus on questions that should provoke some interesting answers pertaining to the game. Thanks for putting this together Varren. Lots of interesting answers that I hope will be ...

[HELP WANTED] Map Download Links

Many new players do not know where to download maps on the server list, so Vincentweb's map-to-link script gave download links on the name of the map in the server list. However, that is far out of date, which poses a variety of issues. Help inventory all the maps, and their download links, in YSFli...

Soji Question and Answer Session

My two:

Now that $500 computers who could only run YSFlight before can now run FSX, FS2004 and other more advanced flight simulators, what is being done to keep the game relevant?

Will YSFlight ever be developed by more than one person? (core application, not mods)

But by the way, could you get the "Offline" box back? That little box made things a little easier than me to "quick look" the list.
Sure, just updated.

New Serverlist

The new serverlist is up, same URL as before: http://ysflight.org/serverlist/

Not all features from the old list are implemented. Some of those features may be implemented in the future.
Please let me know if you have any issues.

Thanks,

New things from Soji

I still get the same error. I'm pretty sure now it is incompatible with any Windows version before Win7. I'll have a chat with Soji and see what could be causing the error, as well as hopefully get a possible fix for you. In the meantime: https://www.mediafire.com/?6464oa8osga6o1e (zipped up versio...

New things from Soji

I have updated the links on http://ysflight.org/download/ with the latest version of YS. Do NOT use the download.com version as the installer is fake, it just downloads the zip and opens that up. May also contain spyware/bloatware.

Check it out:

YSFlight Servers Without Port Forwarding

Some games use UPnP technology which allow port forwarding to be done without any manual router configuration. There are a couple software packages out there which allow any game to do this, so I think it would be a good idea to try it out with YSFlight and see if UPnP can be integrated into a compa...
