    @AussieSim The 1 month is not available any more. This was too short period for most users.

    I've adapted the faq. Thanks for the heads up

    I paid $60 for SimTools Pro upgrade last Fall and now need to purchase a download package to obtain the Dirt Rally plugin I like to try. Not particularly happy since about it. I'm only using Sim Tools for a wind sim not motion.

    If you don't like something, or don't consider it good value, then you always have the choice to not use it.

    As per this thread you can meaningfully participate in the community and earn forum coins for plugin access, or if you don't want to do that you can buy plugin access.

    I apologize if my comments seemed critical. It was not my intent. I was only trying to provide feedback. I was well aware of my options and don't mind paying a reasonable amount for something I consider of value. I don't expect to get everything for free. At the moment I have 100 coins since I have tried to contribute to the forums when I feel I can be of real value. It would be nice if I could use those coins to purchase only the plug-in I'd like to try, Dirt Rally. Is there any way I can use my acquired coins to purchase a plug-in without purchasing an all access weeks package? I read it cost 10 coins to download a plug-in but don't seem to be able to do so without purchasing a package. Thanks.

    @Phaze11111 - I've sent you 250 coins.

    I tend to jump on and off the forum these days and when I see someone who has made some helpful posts but struggling to get those coins, I'll gladly help them out.
    The coin debate has been raging for a long time, but it's a great system and stops "hit and run" forum members.

    Some members have massive coins amounts but they are way more frequent on here than me and if they started donating it would set a dangerous precedent for the forum as a whole. (ie begging letters :) )

    Enjoy the plugin!

    Thank you very much Archie. I very much appreciate your gift. I wish I could contribute more to the community but I'm only using SimTools and plugins for the wind simulator portion of my racing rig. Thanks again very much!

    The Gold Membership banner is not showing so it will be our site admin @RaceRay who will need to look into that for you.

    @jacoaj When did you upgrade your account? There is no upgrade from that username. Do you use another username?

    You can send me your paypal confirmation via private conversation and I am going to check it.
