Hello all,
You know where this fix for this problem ?
Because it's very very long to charged when you have many AI plane or IVAO MTL

Thank for your feedback

The more AI you add, the longer the load times will be. This is because of the way the aircraft are checked to detect duplicated titles.

Due to the nature of what is going on in this process - namely that each line in each aircraft.cfg file has to be checked for possible duplicate title= entries during every start on the sim - I am not sure this can be fixed at all.

This has been ongoing since at least FSX.

Hello Rob,

Does the startup process in addition to checking every aircraft.cfg, check other items such as texture folders for each aircraft? For example apart from the default aircraft and addon aircraft (flown by user) is every AI aircraft folder checked for textures or just their aircraft.cfg? Thank you

Just the aircraft.cfg files for all user-flown and AI aircraft.
