Use only FSX scenery

Recommended Posts

I have a large number of Megascenery Earth scenery add-ons and it is awesome when flying across multiple states.  When I start a flight, it takes a lot of time for the scenery files to download.  I am wanting to use FS Instant Approach to practice ILS approaches at KAMA.  When I complete an approach and want to repeat, it has to go through the scenery download again before I can repeat the approach.  My question here is how can I turn off the large scenery download and just use the FSX scenery as it is faster and besides the scenery is not important when doing ILS flights.  Will I have to uncheck all of the scenery add-ons in the scenery library.  Thanks for any help you can send me.

Yes, you do have to turn them off I believe.

This product should help:

Comprehensive instructions are linked to on the site. 

It works well IMHO. 😎 I have groups set up by country or continent if landclass etc. You can easily set the priorities of scenery too.

Why not do touch-and-go's?  Or takeoff and circle for the next approach....  I do not use FS Instant Approach.  Does it totally reload the flight from scratch?  Does it provide no option?

Frank, the beauty part of the FS Instant Approach program is once you land you can immediately return to the beginning point of the approach and just keep doing it over and over.  It eliminates the time it takes after the touch and go to fly to the approach point. again.  I have quite an extensive  scenery library and it takes a lot of time to reload the scenery between the approaches.  Scenery is not real important when shooting approaches, so I unchecked all of the add-on scenery and when I disconnect and connect to start another approach it takes just a few seconds and I am set up for the approach again.  Great program for practice.  I have set up the weather to break out of overcast at minimums to get great practice flying IFR approaches.  It has a connect/disconnect button that reloads scenery at beginning of approach.  My step of unchecking all the add-on scenery solved that problem.
