Xup2Date

About This Club

Updating your Add ons and mods in X-Plane can be very time consuming and very annoying by downloading, extracting and copying files manually. Here Xup2Date comes in handy! It lets you update your X-Plane Add ons and mods in just a few simple clicks without the need of any manual work. At the moment Xup2Date lets you update your mods from the Xplane Org Forum, Xplane Org Store, Threshold Forum and Google Drive. Xup2Date also can backup your X-Plane folder by syncing X-Plane with a backup folder. This means it only copies over files which have changed which makes the backup process very fast if you do it regularly.

  6. Here some frequently asked quesions answered by someone who is supposed to have some knowledge about this product: What Add-Ons can i update through Xup2Date Add-Ons from the Threshold forum, Org forum and the Org store. We'll probably add more file providers later on. I need to enter my login data into Xup2Date. Is that secure? We save your data encrypted on your PC ONLY and we only use it to download the files with your account. The download request with your login data will also be sent encrypted to the server. Are there any download limits? This depends on the file provider (e.g. Org forum). Some file providers have download limits, but this has nothing to do with Xup2Date, it's a limitation by the providers themselves. We can't change that. Is this a virus? Not as far as i know. Can i use Xup2Date together with an Add-Ons internal updater? Yes. You could for example update your Add-On, which comes with its own updater, with this updater and add mods for this Add-On (e.g. soundpacks, texture packs) with Xup2Date. Or you can update everything through Xup2Date. Your choice. What's the "Product Page URL" input field when i try to add an Add-On into Xup2Date? The "Product Page URL" is the page where you would normally find the download links of your Add-On. On the org forum for example this would be this page (https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/29166-ksfo-san-francisco-international-airport-and-city/), on the Threshold Forum this would be this page (https://forum.thresholdx.net/files/file/59-x-visibility-dynamic-haze-control/) and on the org store it would be the page where you would start the download from. In the manual there is a description with some images. If you want to download google drive files this is the folder URL, beginning with "https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/" Can i update the ZIBO with Xup2Date? Yes you can!
  7. Here are known issues or other limitations we have at the moment: Downloads contained in .rar files can not be installed At the moment updates are only available for Add-Ons from the Threshold forum, Org Forum, Org store and Google Drive. More will come later on.
  8. At the moment we're in closed beta phase. If you would like to attend leave a message here, on Facebook or on Discord. If you have any suggestions let us know.
