Introducing Collections on Flightsim.to

Introducing Collections on Flightsim.to

We're always on the hunt for new ways to enhance your Flightsim.to experience. Today, we're thrilled to announce a brand-new feature we believe will redefine how you interact with mods and add-ons on our platform: Collections! You can now include any add-on in a carefully selected list, allowing you to organize them for your own use or make them available for others to keep track of as you make updates. You can share your collections to enable others to locate those resources without difficulty, or keep them private.

Imagine you're putting together a playlist of your favorite songs. Now, apply that concept to mods and add-ons. That's Collections for you! They are curated sets of mods and add-ons, typically centered around a specific theme or user preference. Whether you're a mod creator or a user, Collections allows you to:

  • Organize mods for personal use.
  • Share curated sets with the community.
  • Discover thematic collections created by others, enhancing your in-sim experience.

To create a collection, open any mod page and click on the "Add to Collection" button on the right sidebar. You can then review all your collections through the "My Collections" page accessible from your User menu. If you decide to make your collection public, you can add an description and apply to get it listed on our Collections page! We all know that the vastness of content on Flightsim.to can sometimes be overwhelming. With Collections, you can streamline your user experience by easily locating a curated list by community members, organizing your favorite add-ons, all in one place, and sharing your personal favorites or thematic sets with friends or the larger community. We're still working hard on the feature, so you may notice some things missing or bugs. As always, we'd love to hear your feedback - please use the Feedback button located on the right side of the site! Read more about Collections here. We can't wait to see your collections!

Threads

Another feature update we have launched recently is Threads. Navigating through thousands of scattered comments can be a daunting task. We've seen add-ons brimming with over 30,000 comments, making interactions disordered and challenging to track. Enter "Threads" – our solution to transform these interactions into streamlined, meaningful conversations. Mirroring the structure of traditional forums, Threads offer an organized space where users and creators can initiate specific topics, making discussions more focused and comprehensible. Moreover, with the introduction of Threads, we're phasing out the older 'groups' feature from the old UI. Currently, any add-on surpassing the 1,000-download mark will be equipped with Threads. Every such add-on will automatically host two essential threads: "Announcement" and "Frequently Asked Questions" - and both users or creators can create more topics if required. Creators can leverage the Announcement thread for recent updates and key information, while the FAQ thread is the go-to space for addressing common queries or challenges. Although these threads are read-only, they're easily accessible under the "Creators Announcements" tab. Read more about Threads here.
