Hey thanks. It looks great, and am able to set the performance vs quality much higher than before.
But I still have zero airports to start at(exept KSFO). How long does it normally take to import?

Hi DutchPilotMitchell

Importing time depends on scnenery folder you use. When you use built-in FlightGear (means default scenery), import should take less than a second. When you use terrasynced scenery (core settings tab -> download scenery via terrasync), importing can take more than 15 seconds, because there are a lot more files "to scan". But do you see a progressbar when you’re importing. When you don’t see a window with progressbar maybe there is a wrong path for terrasync scenery on core settings tab ?

Cheers, gral

When i just press import with the default settings, and click OK, I see something appear less than 0.5 seconds long, so I cN't really see what is says. But nothing appears in the airport list. I'll try reinstalling it and see what happens.

Or you copy/paste and post me here the line you see in "core settings" tab in the field CUSTOM DATA DIRECTORY. And the path you see in the field DOWNLOAD SCENERY VIA TERRASYNC.

Cheers, thanks, gral
