Hello, I am wondering if you need to download planes in order to see them on IF and if so does it make the sim lagyier (if that’s a word) as I am on 4glte. Im on the live server sitting at WMKK but I can only see a few of the planes.
I don’t think downloading the planes will help you see them. What matters is if you have a strong WiFi connection. 4G/LTE probably won’t cut it. Try again when you have a stronger WiFi connection :)
It makes in interesting when trying to get around other planes lol…im trying to do plane watching :(
In the settings menu under live, there’s an option to toggle the density of planes that you see on your screen ( I believe the options are low, medium, high, and very high) Choosing a higher setting will get you what you want, however it may slow the game down depending on what device you are using.
To reinforce and conclude what had been said above, The main setting that dictates how many planes you see is the density count, the higher it is - the more planes you should see. To show you the aircraft, data needs to be downloaded, so theoretically having all the aircraft downloaded speeds up that process.
I have them all downloaded on a Samsung Note8, and have noticed a definite decrease in lag due to the system downloading aircraft data. If your device has the memory available, with the obvious extra to spare - I recommend you download as many as you’re willing to. Although sticking to the ones you like to fly and not having them all shouldn’t give you any issues either.
Just to add to what you said:
Seeing planes in-game which aren’t downloaded downloads them automatically.
