Conundrum: Loading aircraft from Fsx

Recommended Posts

I hope that this is the right forum for me to post this puzzling event. If not, someone, please set me straight.


I have relatively few aircraft in Fsx but most are payware and would have complex panels etc to load. It takes me around 17 seconds to get the list of ac once I hit the "aircraft" menu item within Fsx. This may not seem like an unreasonable amount of time, I know but it seems to me that it used to be a matter of 3 or 4 seconds earlier and I suspected a newly installed aircraft may be the reason for this delay.


In an effort to decrease the loading time of aircraft and to discover which one was causing the longest load, I transferred all the aircraft within "fsx\Simobjects\Airplanes" to another folder called "hanger"  in "fsx\simobjects", leaving only the default Cessna C172P.

The result was that the delay was just as long.


Any ideas as to why the delay is still there when there is a single aircraft in the folder?


I will preempt any suggestions to defrag by saying that Fsx is in the root directory of my C drive, which is an SSD and does not need defragging.


Thank you,

Found the answer myself. The problem lay in "fsx\Simobjects\misc". I had recently bought and installed Fsdreamteam GSX Ground services. These objects in the Misc folder were (And still are) causing the long Aircraft loading delay.
