G1wkr - My internet connection is so slow, it took over 2 days to download this in the beginning. So just keeping it up to date is way faster than uninstalling and then downloading it all over again.
I wont swear that uninstalling and reinstalling would not be the better way, if I have to do that I would just quit because it’s not worth waiting all that time. I appreciate the amount of work that has gone into this sim, my concerns is/are: they keep it seems going around in circles and nothing get completed, oh new scenery for sure.
As mentioned in another post, I cannot see Mt. St. Helens or the Statue of Liberty if flying at 30,000 feet. I am more concerned at that point not hitting another plane, the ATC directing me correctly, and the navigation systems not driving me into mountain. I have (according to log) about 40 hours of FT, but I know I have spent way more than that testing/learning/crashing/not completing flights because they just get impossible to complete. You don’t get credit for any of that time flown, lots of people say they have hundreds of hours completed, if that is so, they have thousands of hours in uncompleted flights/crashes, etc. I can fly in FSX around the world, yeah some buggy ATC, but FP works, ILS works, much less frustrating. And my favorite plane the C-17 from Virtavia is not now and possibly never going to make it into this Sim, because the development tools for it to be ported over are so broken and costly to purchase the small developers are just pushed out of the door. I could go on and on, and wish I was smart enough to learn how to build Airplanes, but am not, nor rich enough to buy all the software (nowadays you rent software-another ■■■■■) to make all the parts come together. It’s just too much work at my age.
Now over that time, if the new laptop purchased for this game takes a dump, I will then have to reinstall all of it once it’s repaired, so far it has not given me one bit of trouble. Knock on wood.
