    Larry, I don't know specifics, but I read somewhere it would take 800 SSDs to hold all the online scenery. I don't know if those were 125GB or 2TB SSDs but it is a prohibitively huge amount of data.

    Here is a shot of a small lake 0.75miles long by 0.25 miles wide, taken shortly after the sim was released. There was very light wind (2-3 mph) and yet you see there was some wave action back then.

    The water effects were turned on in the release, but were turned off temporarily in the update. They will be back soon, and they do look amazing in the initial release.

    There are no aircraft currently that can get past Mach 1. The flight envelope becomes a lot more complicated from about Mach 0.94 on up.

    It works fine for me. NVIDIA did reset my settings when I installed the new driver, I had to go back and reset them. Little change in performance.

    There are more than 30,000 airports that don't have this problem. Yes a few airports are missing. That does not mean you can't still enjoy the simulator as it is now!

    Great Shots! My family and I (I was a kid at the time), were on our way up there when the big earthquake that caused that landslide occurred. We had to change plans in a motel in Colorado.
