Flai model matching


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have used Flai for many years with no problems at all however it says on their website that it is going to be discontinued and the download link is not available anymore.

Please could someone direct me to an alternative model matching source for Prepar3d v4.5 and vPilot, if there is any?

Kind regards

In fairness to VATSIM, I should say that the network was not given a heads' up about this. I expect they will have something official to say in the next little while. Please give them some time to respond.

You can still use FLAi if you have it, there simply won't be anymore updates and it can't be re-downloaded. It should be suitable until a replacement from somebody else comes about.

Hopefully, given that this is just the repaints that are affected and not the models, VATSIM will reach out to the VAs for their support in provided replacement paints and put together a long-needed package of their own.

You're asking just hours after a bomb was dropped on the community.  So the only thing I can say is Google is your friend.  With Google, I found that for about $45 US, you can purchase UT2 Live.  http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=utlive

You'll have to figure out if that's right for you.  Otherwise, you can do like the other 77,000 of us that used FLAI and hang tight to see what comes next.  If you can still use it, you can still use it.  If not, you'll have to research and compare your alternatives to see what's best for you.

Mere hours after a bomb drop like that on a volunteer community, there are not easy, clear answers....

Best way to start this 2021....without doubt a big problem for the entire community. Luckly for me I have also Mytraffic6 for P3D v3, bot for the other users? This will be a great trouble. Currently there aren't freeware alternatives, for what I know.

So, the only other thing I'll say is that yes, things are pretty new and raw right now, and I'm sure there will be much more substantial communications to come, but just as a quick note for everyone's awareness, please know that the Board of Governors is currently in a full court press looking at multiple alternatives to ensure the best possible outcome for our community as quickly as possible.
