Addit! Pro For Flight Simulator 2004
Addit! Pro gives you the power to fully manage all of your Flight Simulator 2004 addons. Quickly and easily install new addons. Archive addons to Addit! Pro's File Cabinet or recreate them in folders or zip files. Removing addons is just as effortless. Assign new panels and sounds to your fleet of aircraft. Conflicts and configuration problems are identified before they cause any grief.
When you install scenery, Addit! Pro can automatically update Flight Simulator's scenery library (Scenery.cfg). A full-featured scenery library editor provides all of the functionality of Flight Simulator's scenery library manager plus much more! Manage A.I. flight plans using the A.I. Traffic Manager.1 The program handles aircraft, adventures, A.I. flight plans1, A.I. airport and facilities data flights, flight plans, panels, scenery, skins and repaints, sounds, textures, videos, weather and more!
The Addon Wizard appears when you first start the program. The Addon Wizard lists all of Addit! Pro's core functions and provides a detailed description of each of them. Help is always available should you need it. Just press F1 or click on the Help button.
The Addon Installation Wizard makes installing addons a breeze. The Wizard allows you to quickly identify the zip file (or regular files) you want to install. It handles the complicated and time-consuming task of installing files to their proper locations. Conflicts and problems are identified before they cause trouble. You will know if any files will be overwritten and may defer the overwrite or accept it. Addit! Pro keeps track of older files, restoring them later, as necessary to ensure the integrity of other addons.
You can import aircraft, panels, sounds and scenery. New addons can even be imported automatically during startup. Scenery can be easily installed to custom folders, to your Addon Scenery folder or to Flight Simulator's general scenery folder. Addit! Pro can update Flight Simulator's scenery library so you do not need to locate, arrange, prioritize and enable the scenery yourself. You will always have total control over your scenery library with the robust scenery library editor.
Addons are easily managed with Addit! Pro. Rename addons as you see fit, enter optional descriptions, record the authors and even rate your addons. Examine addon files in detail, review documentation, view image files and play sound files, using a convenient central interface. You can move addons to Addit! Pro's File Cabinet for safe keeping, recreate them in folders or zip files, or delete them. Removing addons is safe because Addit! Pro knows if other addons depend on the files being removed. You can even repair addons, finding replacements for damaged or corrupt files.
The Addon History shows a log of every addon you import or install over time. Details like zip filename, size, an author list, rating and addon description are saved in the History. Use the Addon History window to see if you have previously installed an addon, look for an addon removed on a specific date, search for an old addon's zip filename and more!
The Edit Aircraft window gives you the power to quickly change an aircraft's panel or sound. Assign pictures to aircraft and panels. Create or remove aircraft variants. Quickly open configuration files, checklists and reference files. Hide aircraft to shorten Flight Simulator's in-game aircraft list. Addit! Pro identifies configuration file errors and can generate a report explaining the problems. Powerful filtering methods allow you to work with only the addons you wish to see. Select and fly an aircraft immediately, quickly updating the default flight and starting Flight Simulator in one step. The Edit Panels and Edit Sounds windows provide similar functionality for panels and sounds.
The program is very customizable and it remembers your preferences. Sort lists by any column, show icons and quickly access files. Most lists are searchable by name or date and you can even create printable reports. You can also automatically optimize Addit! Pro's database, select a start-up window, set colors and more. Context menus are available for just about everything so when in doubt, right-click!
Addit! Pro uses a multiple document interface (MDI). This allows you to work with several windows simultaneously. While installing an aircraft addon you can also be examining your existing aircraft and browsing folders. Windows can be resized and repositioned and the program remembers their configuration for next time. The Toolbar is customizable with ToolTips and captions.
With Addit! Pro you will never have to do it the "other" way again!

How Does It Work?
Say you just downloaded an aircraft addon and you want to use it with Flight Simulator. Just open Addit! Pro's Addon Installation Wizard and select the zip file. The program analyzes the addon to determine the best installation. Tweak the settings if you wish then press Finish. Your addon is installed and you can use it immediately. It's really that simple!
Managing the addons you install is equally painless. Quickly delete addons, move those you're not using to Addit! Pro's File Cabinet, and even recreate addons in folders or zip files. The addons you archive are automatically zipped to save disk space.
Use the Edit Aircraft display to quickly change any aircraft's panel or sound. Just pick an aircraft, select Change Panel or Change Sound, and choose a new item from the list. You can even assign pictures to aircraft and panels - in fact, several pictures are included to get you started!
The program is easy to use but if you need assistance, context sensitive help is only a key press away.
