Hey guys. i was wondering, do i have to keep the add-on plane files or can i delete them to save room? THANKS AGAIN!!
You can delete them from their temprorary folder but not from the airctraft folder you put them in. 😉
yeah thats what i was talking about! Thanks!
I must disagree, and wait to be corrected.
You can delete any aircraft from your main aircraft folder that you added.
You can't (or shouldn't) delete any of the default aircraft.
You can delete the temp files or the planes out of the game, but as RadarMan says not the default planes. The only problem you might have deleting planes from the game is you may have some files in areas you don't know about such as gauges. The only problem that will cause is just the loss of space on your hard drive since they are never called up by the game without the planes.
If I download and install a plane and don't like it I delete it..................no problem.
I misinterperted the question I guess.
Go into your <fs9>\Aircraft directory and select all the aircraft folders you wish to remove. Press SHFT-Delete to forever kill them, or just Delete alone to send them to your recycling bin.
Be sure not to delete the C172SP, Baron, or default 737-400. If you have payware or others that are important to you, be careful.
I wouldn't worry too much about gauges, effects, etc. You can use a management program to get rid of these as well but it won't hurt for them to stay there.
