Free Services Available


As of December 14, 2015.
Please let me know of updates or if you are aware of other services that are working!

These services are to be defined in the ProxyUser.ini file in the "TileProxy" folder within your Flight Simulator folder. Note that you might need to adjust the path to the "TileProxyServicesCache" folder.
They are configured for FSX. If you are using FS9, check Ed Truthan's tutorial and pre-configured ini files to see the differences.
