How will we have enough memory

These are answers Devs have actually given on the forum, not confirmed but not speculation:

  1. Global flight will work by your device downloading scenery areas before you get to them, and also a cache for areas you fly in often so you won’t have to redownload them. -Philippe
  2. My favourite option for doing long flights is an AFK (Away from Device) mode, that other planes and ATC can see- Laura

Even if it isn’t added Autonav is already available 😏

How so? (-:

LNAV has been confirmed for a WHILE

LiveFlightconnect for Windows 😏

Given the fact that LNAV is already confirmed, I wonder if VNAV will be implemented as well.

I would rather not have to go to my PC to engage autopilot and the run back to disengage it when I have to land or when ATC gets a hold of me and gives me a heading. But it’s a non sequitur now. LNAV is coming 🎉

You really like this emoji don’t you. Lol

It might not work on solo though, as chunk loading may only work online.

Since us Airport Editors already keep the world on our computers, and that takes up about 250 megabytes, I can say that we’re safe. But with the terrain rendering, the new ATC Airspaces that we’re gonna start making soon, Dynamic Time and LNAV (and hopefully taxiway lights 😋), my guess would be 1.5 to 3 gigabytes…

I think it may be streamed from a server. However, Extreme Landings Pro manages, and that doesn’t take up that much space.

Did You know a mine craft world is Te size of Neptune? IF should handle alright.

I’m hoping I will be able to get areas offline. My iPad is not connected to the Internet, only a few times a month for a few minutes.

I don’t know the memory it will need.

Extreme landings has a file they place on your memory. About 800mb.

Extreme Landings (no hate please) did a pretty good job of global but it did get laggy at times but I reckon we should be alright. It’s for solo as well right?

It’s still laggy and buggy. Open ocean lets you descend to negative altitude (-3,000 ft), and it doesn’t make a distinction between airspeed and ground speed. Another thing is that when traveling in speed up mode it kicks you off it (have to reinitialize) when it loads new map area.

I had no idea about the altitude problem but if there was one thing that ticked me off it was how it adjusted for ASL not MSL altitude. I was always wondering why my aircraft were flying erratically

Yes that too!

Try flying over the Himalayas on EL and tell me how much fun you had. I nearly stalled 6 times!

I would like this. When I’m on an aircraft, I would love to fly the route that we are flying IRL in IF, and therefore I wouldn’t have wifi.
