Loading time of the simulator due to AI traffic
« on: February 07, 2019, 06:22:42 PM »
Hi guys, my simulator takes an eternity to go from the loading screen to the game. It's always stuck at 6 % for almost 10 minutes. How long does your sim need to load? I read that the AI Traffic is responsible for this, but I still wonder if these long loading times are normal. Also because it takes 10 minutes to display the start screen at all.

6% is not AI Traffic. AI Traffic starts at around 86%. Check the loading screen to see what its loaded at the moment

I noticed a big increase in loading time at 6% when I added more scenery files. Now I group my scenery by world location and deactivate scenery I'm not going to use during the session. Loading times are much quicker again.

I hope this fix is also for photoscenery.  I have a ton of that and it takes forever to load.

I read that the AI Traffic is responsible for this....

it does, or so says umberto (fsdt) .. that's why he's locked all the SODE features in GSX to prevent AI docking / user autodocking & he's rebuilt airfield lighting to stop SODE daytime "low vis" arrivals.

all hail !

cheers

AI loading starts at around 81% or so.

AI loading may start at 81%, however there's a long long lag at the initial splash screen that is associated to the amount of AI on board.   It doesn't matter where the AI are located, the more AI the longer the wait until you can access the screen with options/settings.  If I remove the connection to AI traffic, the splash screen only stays for a few seconds.   

There are other posts about the 6 percent, going back to 2009, all kinds of different input and theories why.

Most of the time I only have about an hour to fly, so I don't want to wait 20 minutes until I see the plane at the gate.
