    Most available panels will have the gauge positions in place since most aircraft of any particular type use standard gauges and positions. And in real aircraft it's not uncommon to see a hole left...

    Make sure your download manager is limited to two simultaneous connections to flightsim, more than that is seen by the site as trying to download too many files at once.

    Best suggestion for such scenery is to search sites for simmers of that country or continent, these are often good sources of files not available elsewhere. I've run across at least a couple of...

    And where do you draw the line? At what point do you tell someone, "your contribution isn't good enough"?

    That is an elitist attitude which could deter many from even uploading.

    What you...

    Open the throttle a bit and see if they start, particularly if at a high altitude airport.

    I would suspect a corrupt or missing file, an unregistered gauge/file, or a registry error. Did you completely uninstall FS9, including add-ons (scenery installed elsewhere usually isn't a problem)...

    Perhaps I misread, I consider GA airports to be those locals serving mostly private aircraft. Hartsfield is the busiest commercial airport in the world.

    I have several installed. GA Flight Generation Tool by Vladimir Svoboda is an "oldie but goodie"; Random AI Generator from Eduardo Lebrón does just that, feed it a list of airports and aircraft and...

    I've had no problems with any managers and flightsim; just make sure they do not establish more than two simultaneous connections.

    If AI land at an airport with no parking for them, they will disappear at the point they would turn off the runway.

    There is little default AI at any but the major airports in FS; and most add-on AI caters to those same airports (MAI, obviously, caters to military bases). There are several freeware AI flight...

    The AI will always reappear at their next scheduled time.

    Thanks for the info 3green; so the delay is hardcoded but can be edited.

    Personally, any longer time would be massively irritating to...

    FS9 will only use one core, so assign its affinity to just one core; I've found the sim to be more stable and less stutters this way, the OS will let it have as much of that core as it needs and...

    I don't think you can get "struck" by lightning as it's just a graphic effect.

    You could always disable crash detection. I reluctantly did this after several instances of "building crash" after landing ...when the nearest building was hundreds of yards away.

    I believe that is hardcoded. But it does have benefits, sitting at the back of a long line of AI waiting your turn to take off you'll see them disappearing ahead of you and you can move up the line.
