Recommended Software


Customize your joystick buttons, HID controller, and VRInsight MCP-Combo panel to your heart's content! (for FSX, FS20)

HIDMacros (or now LuaMacros) FREEWARE

Use multiple keyboards each having separate functions! I prefer this over buying expensive hardware since you still get the "one-place-one-function" concept which is a key point in obtaining realism!


Control many more things in FS. Free version as well but the registered version is a must if you want to customize keys and buttons and much more! (for FSX, FS20)


Read/write FSUIPC offsets, flightsim controls, L:vars, H:vars and more using WebSockets - which is directly supported by all modern browsers. Web programmers can now easily talk to the flight simulator and build what they need.

Archive for FSX


Use photo-terrain textures in your flight simulator, downloaded real-time from map services. Probably doesn't work anymore.


EZdok Camera Addon (EZCA) replaces the views system in FSX. Even though it feels a bit unpolished it's a good program and increases realism a lot! You suddenly feel like you are sitting in an aircraft because you can move around freely. But read these notes!
