SIMstarter, freeware launcher application

simstarter_01_cropPeter Rosendahl‘s SIMstarter application may be familiar to many in its previous guise of FSXstarter – a program designed to simplify handling of profiles, aircraft liveries, scenery sets and more for the Microsoft sim.

It has now expanded its remit to include Lockheed-Martin Prepar3D, while retaining its status defined by the developer as “Freeware/Donationware” in a press release received by simFlight yesterday. To find out more about the application, you can visit the developer’s site here, while the full press release is also available, by clicking on the “Read More” text, below.

No more batch-files…

SIMstarter is a tool to define different starting profiles for FSX and PREPAR3D. You can define up to 9 different starting profiles to set up your Sim for different situations. Define one profile for your VFR flights with a lot of eyecandy and special scenerys active and another for your IFR flights with less autogen, another scenery and so on. In addition SIMstarter includes a lot of other helpful tools to manage your SIM configuration.


  • Define up to 9 independent Start profiles to start FSX/PREPAR3D
  • All settings of FSX and most settings of PREPAR3D can be configured by mouse-click for each profile
