Scenery File Loading

Are scenery files loaded into memory for future use or are they left on disk to be used as needed?
I know that SSD's speed up file loading but are they read after the initial load?

v4.1 pauses then continues during a long flight

I have noticed that on long flights, over an hour, my v4.1 will pause for several seconds and then continue on with the flight. I fly Low and Slow which puts a heavy load on system resources, so an hour flight for me will load a ton of HD scenery. It acts like it has run out of available memory and ...

Re: V3.4 Scenery Cfg Error

This Old Man thanks you for putting him on the right path.
In my confusion, I was looking at the App Data instead of the Program Data.
Old age can be a challenge at times. Your brain is full of wisdom if you can just remember it.

Once again, Elaine, thank you.
Everything is working now.

Hydrodynamic drag for Floatplanes.

Is there a way to control the hydrodynamic drag on floatplanes in V4? My floatplanes run on after landing until they hit something plus they will not stand still at engine idle. This is making learning to fly floatplanes very difficult. Is there some code hidden in V4 that will adjust the amount of ...

Long Terrain Data Load Times

I am running v3.3 with all of Orbx's NA scenery programs installed on a fast SSD.
When I start the sim or change scenarios it takes forever ( several minutes ) for the Terrain Data to load.
Can I improve the load time or should I just go get another cup of coffee?

In short I want to create my own custom P3D v3.2 installer for my legacy aircraft. My move to PREPAR3D has be...
