MS Flight size

Recommended Posts

I was checking Microsoft Flight page and in the recommended specs it shows as 30gb so I wonder why did they write that. I tried it before and it takes very small size in hdd and there are limited amount of DLC that can be added to the game through the store so is that a mistake or they were planning it to be like FSX?

I wonder if that's a misprint. I checked my program files and it is 2.57 GB. This does not include the files in my document folder which might take it up close to 3 GB.

 

Wonder if what you're see should be 3.0 GB?

My DLC folder is over 6-7gb with the repaints installed. The DLC folder is what they were using as a mod or add-on folder.

OK. Now I'm confused. Were you asking about the disk required to store Flight, or were you asking about the machine capability to run it?

It's the recommended requirements. At that point, they planned to have a lot more DLC released for Flight.

Programs usually overestimate the amount of hard drive space required in the requirements.  This is especially true for downloaded titles because it often requires downloading a compressed version, uncompressing, and then installs, so it is possible the disk space required during the installation is much larger than the post-installation size.

 

I think in the case of Flight we didn't know the exact size so we just picked a big number.
