Can you delete default aircraft to save disk space?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

On my disk, space is running really quite low, and I was wondering if I can remove some default simobjects to save space?

Is this allowed or against the EULA? As in, does it count as reverse engineering or modifying?

 

Thank you!

Yes, you can if don't use any other airplanes that borrow some default panels.  I leave only the cessna as default and have all the others in a "hanger" on a separate folder.

In your case, you can put them on a flash drive.

Well, a standard plane such as the B737 or B747 is about 40-60mb. If you think that you save a lot of space by deleting them, go ahead...

Hard drives today are so cheap, to me it is not worth saving a few hundred MBs by deleting stuff.

While you can delete them, it is likely to cause you problems.

Many other aircraft use aliases to files of the default aircraft, especially to Sound files. If you delete the defaults, you'll start finding other aircraft of yours have no sound. Same applies when you change directory names of default aircraft.
