A SimTools license only covers the SimTools software, it does not cover access to plugins, if eligible you can apply for a free DIY SimTools license, or you can purchase a SimTools license.
There is a "download package" necessary to be able to download Plugins and to access the Plugin download section.
You can buy the download package with coins you get for forum activity or by purchasing a download package
- If you do not have enough coins you need to purchase a download package with fiat money or you need to earn at least 250 coins for forum activity that you can spent then for the download package.
- If you purchased a download package you can download as many plugins as you like to.
- One download costs you additional 10 coins which will be reduced from your account
- You are able to download plugins even when your coin account is negative but you are not able to purchase a new download package when you do not have enough coins and the download package is expired.
- You will earn new coins for activity in the forum. (See earning rates below)
- If you do not have enough coins and want to download right now you can purchase a Gold Supporter Status.
That Gold supporter status grants you the permission for accessing the plugin download section.
- A gold supporter will get a badge below his avatar like this:
