Problems Accessing Files? Please read this
Simviation: Simviation began as 'The Strip' in 1998, aiming to support Flight Simulator 98 with easy to install add-ons & information. 'Simviation.com' was born shortly after as it became obvious there was a lot of interest in the area of Microsoft FS & CFS add-ons. 'The Strip' can be viewed here!
Simviation is now firmly established as one of the top 3 websites on the globe supporting the ever growing hobby of Flight Simulation & Air Combat Simulation - with the Microsoft Flight Simulator & Combat Flight Simulator series being by far the most popular & well established in this area.

Trouble accessing files or pages?
All files on Simviation are fully accessible & free to download. If you are having problems please read this section.
With almost no exception - all sites on the internet suffer technical problems from time to time. In addition to this the network itself (the Internet) can suffer traffic jams similar to those on a highway. All our links & pages should be accessible at all times & we do everything we can to correct & repair any link problems when they are exposed. During peek times some difficulty may be experienced accessing files or pages. Our own constant monitoring indicates this is usually more an ISP or network problem rather than our servers or immediate network.
You can determine the cause of your access problem in Windows by going to Start - Run & type 'tracert www.simviation.com' & watch what happens on the black screen. Any '*' or 'timed out' indicates a connection problem. If the problem ends at our end then we are experiencing difficulties. Otherwise the problem is a network or your immediate ISP one.
Common Reasons for Connection Difficulties:
