    What's the status of your available memory? I have a 1TB hard drive and in the last few months mine has been doing similar things in FSX. I had almost 9GB used up with photos and FSX downloads. I bought a 256 GB flash drive and moved all my retired aircraft, photos and downloads to it, deleted some junk files and emptied my recycle bin. Now my C drive shows 612GB used with 318GB free space and FSX is running smoother.

    More than welcome John! I absolutely love to see all screenshots. Great enjoyment for me! It's now nearly six years ago when it was initially released (november 2014). And, that also means it's over six years that I started with the T.5 (september 2014). That said, I expect to get a pre-final beta done next week. I've been several times to Hoogeveen. The project is really fantastic. When you stand next to it, the aircraft is really big, sturdy and spacious. Immediate cause is, of course, the big engine (over 1.30 m in diameter), which makes for a spacious cockpit. I made this photograph there:

    LOL and so starts the Rabbit hole. Keith is 100% right. It might not be a drag problem if you are looking for reality. It might be an engine that is Too Hot(piston or jet) or a propeller that is too efficient. I am not going to try to discourage you from trying to improve it. Before you do any poking at the airfile or aircraft config get the manuals for the plane and start doing some research. Find out all you can about its performance. Start with testing the engines in the model. Too hot try to tune it down. Too weak, tune it up. Note that some FDE developers choose to modify the drag on an aircraft rather than change engine power. Typically that would happen with a Piston engine not a jet. Tuning a propeller takes more talent and knowledge than I have. I have always used...

    On 7 October 1919 The KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines) was founded, as one of the first commercial airline companies. To celebrate this event a TV series was made, called Vliegende Hollanders (Flying Dutchman) which is mainly about the (difficult) relation between Albert Plesman (the man behind KLM and one of the first Directors) and Anthony Fokker (the aircraft builder). So far only one episode has been shown and it looks quite promising. There is a mixture of real aircraft and computer generated aircraft and sometimes a mixture where they have build a part and added the rest with a computer. One full size replica was build for this serie, as it played an important role for both Fokker and the KLM. This a Fokker F.VII/3m. The Fokker F.VII/3m is an aircraft with an interesting story. The...

    That is why I'm staying very lean in the Community folder. I've tried the "Skyscraper" and "Trees" mod/patch. The latter is gone and the former will. I suppose that we could create a back-up community folder and go pick what we need for the day. Can't see any satellite view in OpenStreetMap, which is a must for scenery making. The day Foogle (Google Flight Simulator - one can dream:wiggle:) is annouced, we may have a change in the terms and conditions, but this can't be retroactive and, as far as I can read in my crystal ball, not to come in near future.

    That is fantastic, Huub! I really appreciate that very much. This will certainly motivate me to try and solve the puzzle of tracing the family line back to the Netherlands. I know just about every generation of my Terrell (Tyrrell/Tirrell/Tirel) family line since it began just over 1,000 years ago, and earlier generations over the course of centuries before that, but my other family trees only go back to about the mid-late 1800's as far as the generations I have information on. A big problem, as you've alluded to, is the changes in spellings. Sorry guys for taking this thread off track, but many thanks again, Jankees and Huub! Thank you again, Daan, for this fantastic aircraft! I've been really looking forward to seeing the reproduction based at Hoogeveen, finished in this same...

    PNG-2020-oct-24-008 by Ed Wells, on Flickr It's been years since I've seen this mess, but it's happening more often lately. I tried changing AntiAliasing settings and deleting the shaders. . .each one separately seemed to fix it but it came right back the next time I loaded the Sim. I also tried "verifying" the Orbx scenery I have installed to no avail. I've not done any tweaking of FSX in years, and the graphics card gets periodic driver updates as they're available but this oddity seems unaffected by the updates. Anyone have a suggestion as to what it might be?

    Nice shots guys, I recognise Bakkum, Haarlem and Uitgeest, but why doesn't anyone ever fly over Noordwijk or Voorhout? I did a small query at the "Familienamen bank" (Dutch family name register) on the name "van der Zeijden" as "van der Syde" didn't exist. As you see the name is not really connected to one particular part of the Netherlands. In 2007 there were 7 persons registered with the family name van der Zijde. Which seems to be a name related to Amsterdam from which some have move to the polders (after 1965). As you can see in 2007 there were 218 persons with the name "van der Zeijden" name written in 2 different ways. As the French under Napoleon started our name register, Dutch names where often registered by French civil servants. My family name was "Vinck" until the French...

    Thank you Jankees! Traditionally, at least as far as I know, it has typically been written as just one name here in the US and in the UK ("VanderSyde"), but sometimes split in two, but yeah it would make sense to me that it would have been split in three at one time. It was always understood within my grandmother's family that they were of Dutch ancestry - according to my grandmother, who has since past, her dad only wanted her to marry a fellow from another Dutch family (but which didn't happen). It is interesting to learn about the modern word for "Syde" being "Zijde"/silk.
