Photo-Scenery Loading Times

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow FSX Simmers,

I've seen many times on this and other forums that I should un-tick the areas of photo-scenery that I'm not using, as all scenery is loaded and I can improve loading times if I'm only using scenery in the area around which I'm flying.

Well, I've just tried a little experiment, loading a flight within the UK, but with all my Megascenery for the US (16 states) enabled and then dis-abled.

Guess what? Exactly the same loading time (120secs) for each condition!

So, have I been mis-led all these years, or was it not a valid test?

No, just closed and re-opened FSX.

Are you saying a complete computer close/re-start is necessary for a proper test?

Just had a chance to repeat the test, re-booting each time.

Exactly the same result!

Loading time with/without the 350GB of MegaScenery is identical.
