    Defragging physically moves the data on the platter so that large files are in one continuous (contiguous) area instead of parts here and there. TRIM is a whole different thing. For HDD's, when a file is deleted it is "marked" as deleted and that's all. The OS can overwrite those files at any time. SSD's on the other hand handle deleted files differently. When the OS marks X file as deleted, it gets marked, but when the SSD wants to write on that area where X file used to be, it needs to read, mark, write, delete and free up space. This causes latency issues. TRIM forces the whole SSD to go through this process at once so that the SSD controller can do the job of reading/writing without having to deal with remarking the parts that need to be deleted and cleared before writing...

    I am just now returning to IL2. I've installed the steam version and now have v4.13.4m. I intend to install the VP Mod pack. With the version I have, do I still need the SAS Mega patch or any part of it? Anything else I should know before installing the VP Pak?

    I wonder what the difference is between Trimming and Defragging with SSD's. Is it just semantics?

    Looks high quality on initial viewing. It is worth going to the YT channel where there are more videos. I am not in the market for such an indulgence at the moment as I am perfectly happy with my VKB Russian stick (no collusion :biggrin-new:) and Saitek Throttle Quad Combo. Waiting for independent testers opinion at this early stage is a must I feel especially as this is a new company. Is there space for a new vendor in a small marketplace? Can they survive? We have Honeycomb waiting in the wings with their proposed offering https://flyhoneycomb.com/alpha-flight-control/ . A Yoke, yes, but how much can simmers afford. I really fancy their Throttle system - If that ever appears. My only concern initially is the clamping system to the desk. It looks a bit frail and unstable to my...

    Yeah you devs can and will do what you want. But honestly I don't care if freeware guys don't spring for the tools. We're entering a stage of gaming/simming that in order to really create content that passes muster of the visual realm in which it's placed will require more effort than has been required in the past. So if this means that attrition occurs, from my POV, so be it. Natural selection of the industry. Those that will survive will. Those who choose not to, won't. I'm not worried. My point is really, that the evolution of this sim is coming - whether it be with this new MSFS title or with v5+ of P3D -- and we should all be ready, as it's highly likely that the status quo will be challenged.

    Hi Z, After the initial post, I started playing around with Erwin's FSX Tirpitz. But if you want to carry on, I'll stop what I'm doing. Be nice to have the whole scenery. Cheers Shessi

    So far...beautiful looking ac and model. The LW certainly knew their aerodynamics and jets. A few pics, still so way to go, VC and cockpit to do mainly. The pic with the airfield is actually Juvincourt in France, one of the main op bases for the Ar234. The base was modelled for CFS2 but I'm going to bring it into Fs9 for the Arado ops. Cheers Shessi

    Ha ha ha...you ol' spotters you, damn white wall tyres and cup holders are the main talking points....ha ha. You'll be asking me about the ashtray next! I've got to admit I'm partial to the ww tyres on this, BUT I've not seen any pics of early 109's with them on, soooo I think they'll have to go...or........if someone knows better...;) G and Huub, the green mug is a cup-holder, and is actually based on a can of VB (Aussie Victoria Bitter), it's because Mav asked if it had a cup holder (see previous post) and when I did the Me410 I put one in it for him, just a chuckle and of course will not be modelled (only because I'm not doing the De Luxe model...:biggrin-new:). Anyhoo onwards and upwards.....to the stars and..(OMG 50yrs, I remember sitting in front of a b&w tv as a...

    Thanks for the update mjahn. I've been futzing around with ORBX's new Australia V2 scenery lately, mostly in the outback, and was looking for something more rough and tumble (and oddball) to fly out there. Hence the Blackburn Beverley came to mind. Yeah, I remember those screen shots you posted previously. Really nice work! Tommy

    IIRC Captain Sim's F-104 has tires that have a grayish cast to them.

    Falcon, you're not running SSDs are you? In which case defragging them is sure way to render them dead in a very short time.

    Still pushing paint around on this one; my take on one of 2 Avro 623 which were ceded to Kenya Auxiliary Air unit in 1939-40 having previously been in Tanganyika. Now, two things here , the 623 was a 3 seater ,used for aerial survey work (and we don't have one of these in Nigel's pack due to poly limits ) and I'm not sure at all on the colour scheme ; as it was an aerial survey platform (not a trainer per se) I can't decide what to paint the underside. Yellow means non-op ; whereas I can see a survey machine being used for border patrol or aerial reconnaissance in a semi operational role , with the 'sky' blue undersides. Feedback welcomed ttfn
