Too many planes?

Recommended Posts

2 quick question for you all,1. Does having numerous aircraft in your aircraft folder, over and above the defaults, have any impact on frame rates (i.e the more the slower it becomes...?)2. How do you complete ATPL lesson 2 in FS2002 (JFK VOR 4L) - I keep reaching the end of the training lesson, session cancelled, just after I have turned left to the 218 radial outbound.Thanks in advanceMatt :-hmmm

FS does not load all of these at once, and even then depending a bit on how they were created it will not display all their graphical qualities unless you can actually see them (Ex. Reflective textures are only enabled within in a certain radius of the viewer, aircraft textures are loaded and unloaded depending on whether they are visible or not, some aircraft models use a level of detail system that reduces the polycount when viewed at a distance, etc.)-Leon Medado

IF they are not being used as AI then they are not being used at all. The only thing that you will note is that starting the game in the first place will take a tad bit longer as there are more files that it must beconme aware of.
