35 gigabyte of freeware: NL2000 V3

Recommended Posts

www.nl-2000.comLooks really good, but 35 GB!? I'd need a new h/d for that.

Holy Christ! I waited all these years for that and now I realize that I couldn't even free half of the necesary disk space to install it.What I find especially curious is how they found a way to incoporate 1.2m per pixel resolution ground textures, considering that FS9 can only draw 4.8m per pixel. Judging from the screenshots they did indeed find a way.

I have 8 mb broadband and the first DVD is going to take 101 hrs to d/l when trying to d/l it robs nearly all my bandwidth so unless someone knows a better way then I aint going to wait a month or more for it.It really does look good :-)

Wow. Might have to give that a try. Mighty huge DL, could take a long, looong time to get.Looks like some fine flying, though.

35 GB!?!?! If I wanted to download that I would have to delete everything on my D drive to fit it! My D drive holds nothing but FS9 stuff and right now there is only 33.22GB of space left.

As far as I can see the download is going to take about a day and a half total and I can still use the internet, view videos and/or fly FS9 with a few stutters now and then without pausing anything.As I understand it, with these torrent thingees, the more people on line downloading the faster it goes and there are lots downloading it. I'm getting 250Kb/sec download speed and more with normal cable service, nothing super high speed and that's way faster than most downloads, by a factor of 10:1 in most cases.

For me it is a shame it is bit-torrent. I have 4 Terra-bitdownload speeds, but cannot use bit-torrent.Tom

I tried a part of it, but it doesnt work properly for me.The runway isn't lined up with what ILS etc think.So you start on the grass when you select e.g. amsterdam schipholedit: it says it's 21 GB?"This is necessary because the total download volume is approximately 21 gigabytes"

I wonder whther the developers would consider an EHAM (and immediate surrounds) only version, for those who only fly the heavy iron but not the GA stuff?

Or maybe they could do something where they just have the airports?

I think they do it by laying a custom object down which contains the hires textures. Have a look at the flytampa / Flightzone stuff to see what can be achieved in FS9!!CheersJames>Holy Christ!

I do have enough of that kind of add-on airports to see the effects. But despite popular belief Holland isn't entirely flat. ;)
