Finally John himself has responded :

“ TE NLD service pack 1 is being worked on and no, it’s not ready for release yet because there is more to do. Service packs are worked on as background tasks. I am sure you can still fly in the Netherlands with missing lighthouses!

We have just released FTX Global Vector’s 10th service pack in 5 years, so our track record for maintaining region products is unquestionable , but no amount of banging fists on tables and assuming we abandon products is going to help TE NLD SP1 come any faster. “

Personally, I find it very difficult to fly anywhere without accurately placed lighthouse models. John needs to up his game! :laugh:

Just happy to hear from the "man"...

Just like me,  for John,  Holland is his country of birth, and with a name ending in "ma" he must come from Groningen, where I grew up..

I kind of hoped that he would not let NLD quietly fade away while focused on all the new projects..

Still worth reminding him though.. :wink:

Perhaps in 5 years or so.

Would you agree with 1.2Tb for the UK ?  Do you have that much free space on a SSD ?

No I don't have that much ssd space but I do on hdd.

SSD is getting cheaper all the time, I currently have 2 x 250 and 1 x 500 samsung pro drives a 500 velociraptor and a 2 tb hdd.

I spent last night deleting all my P3D V3.4 installs so now I have loads of space to build on my V4 install.

If you have a smooth Sim that is all that counts.

Like I wrote , my Windows SSD 600 was hitting 100% usage regurlarly with my setup. The 7940X sometimes was waiting for load...

I used a 120 Gb SSD 600 in my cliënt pc and the 2 512 Gb SSD 600 as storage in my server.

From now on I am going to use SSD M2 only for Windows and P3D.

I recently picked up some M.2 NVme 2TB Samsung 970 EVO and 1TB 970 EVO for very cheap ($459 and $229) during one of those NewEgg 3 hours only sales.

Not the Pro versions but I’ll not notice the difference in P3D as they both operate around 3GB/s.

Also picked up a couple of Seagate 10TB enterprise old school mechanical helium drive for $261 ... just in case I need to do the PR scenery shuffle.

Storage prices definitely going down, a year ago a 2TB Samsung M.2 would have been over $1000.

Cheers Rob
