How to improve loading times


The sim scans the Official and Community folders every time you click Play or Launch. The larger the Official and Community folders are, the longer the loading times are likely to be. Depending on your system this process can take up to several minutes. To reduce loading screens, we advise installing the game on an SSD and deleting the package folders of the mods and official aircraft you're not planning to use regularly.
