THE ULTIMATE FSX COLLECTION WITH THE NGX

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I've decided to upload a video dealing with the best paywares that all of us can use with the NGX. I've spent a lot of time and money in order to make my experience as close as possible to the real world operations. I've seen a lot of people asking about this in this forum. So i hope you guys can take 30min of your time and watch this. Hope this will help you a little bit. And if you got any questions about anything, feel free to contact me via you tube or here (PM/topic), i'll be delighted to provide you some more infos.Kaman BAWish you a good day !http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiZ7VNuH76g&feature=feedu

It is not as bad as you think. My FSX Drive with all my FSX related addon is up to 123 gigabyte so far. i have FSX on a dedicated 2nd Gen Western Digital 7200rpm Sata Drive.I just timed it and it takes 40 seconds to get from the Desktop to FSX, and 50 seconds to get from selecting a plane to the Airport Departure gate.Having an optimized, defragged, dedicated hard drive just for FSX is just as important as your CPU and GPU and Memory. Everything matters when it comes to FSX., However never put FSX on motherboard Raid. It will actually be worse than a single drive, unless you use a dedicated Raid Card with its own onboard memory. Best Drive for FSX is in a single Drive configuration is a 10,000 rpm VelociRaptor or an SSD.

Cheers Paul, i might invest in a new drive dedicated to Fsx, although i dont have any problems at the minute i supose over time, adding scenery, aircraft, and non related FS progs time will take its toll and clog my hdd and slow things down.

Great Video, But you MUST be rich or a pirate. I think i have around 20% of the sceneries you have and i think that is much.But you are missing Copenhagen - Kastrup Airport from Scamsim it's very nice and i have high frames with it.

You just gave me some ideas on what scenery to get this weekend :) and I also might invest in a new HDD dedicated for FSX since my main one has only 432GB left.

I installed FSX on it's own raptor after reading the 'About Storage Performance' section in this guide:http://www.simforums.com/forums/topic29041.htmlIt's interesting to note that Raid 0 configurations using motherboard RAID controllers actually cause a loss of performance in FSX because of the extra RAID calculations performed by the CPU. Dedicated (and expensive) RAID controllers have their own CPU.To the OP, that's an amazing list - heading over to AVSIM library now :)

Hi, very funny!!! No sir i can assume you that every single thing that i have, i bought it, because i love this sim thing, i want the companies to continue producing great sceneries, tools and aircrafts. i've never done something illegal just ask PMDG: sure they got 4 valid licenses under my name.Concerning Copenhaguen: i know the scenery but don't really like it and it seems that aerosoft is working on it.cheers

From my experience scenery has never been a factor in FSX start times, it's aircraft that bog it down. Whether I have a default FSX or one with 400+ entries in the scenery.cfg it starts within a couple seconds of each other.Now when I enable my AI with close to 20,000 different A/C is when my start time goes from 40-45 seconds to 3-5 minutes.

That's correct. The only thing slowing down my fsx start up is UT2. Two days ago i deleted all the aircraft that i had. Now i only have the NGX in my fsx. Start up is now pretty fast

All the above is true. You can actually tell the difference with Autogen. If your using Motherboard Raid and start maxing out the Autogen it will start to stutter the more you increase it. The other bad thing about motherboard raid is the limits on the stripe size ie 128k. If only using 2 Hard drives in Raid this would not be enough. On dedicated Network Cards with their own CPU, Memory etc they have larger sizes available.My Next FSX drive will probably be a 10,000 rpm VelociRaptor with 32mb cache.

Mine will probably be a ssd intel 510 series or OCZ ...

Impressive indeed.But what are your favorite ones?Can't afford half the scenery you have but will spend enough to make it better than it is. Could you make a list of your "best " add-ons you think us poor folks would enjoy?

Kaman,Thanks for this. I learned about some companies I had not known. I've already bought QUITO from your recommendation. This gives me many hours of something to do.

Thx Kaman!That was a lot of scenery!Unfortunally I have like that, because they are for FS9sad.pngJust recently began to collect and buy for FSX, since I just got FSX for some months ago.I guess when one have spent 100 and 100 of $, then it´s time to scrap FSX also...TO BAD REALLY it always have to be like that.

Now we are talking about hard drives, it make sense that i install Windows 7 on a 500 GB 7200 Rpm hard disk and FSX on a SSD?Will i take advantage of the speed of the SSD for loading times on FSX?
