The more addons we install, the longer time FSX takes to load up a sim flight. Deactivating sceneries from the Scenery Library won’t shorten load-up time as long as they remain in the Library. The only solution is to remove them from the library completely.
Followings are scenery.CFG files modified for flying zones mentioned in Configuration Fits for ALL #2. The matching scenery will be loaded via the BASIC program when a flying zone is selected.
The overall concept is to ONLY place those addons related to a particular flying zone in the scenery.CFG. All unrelated areas will be removed, including those from FSX default.
For example, in the AS-Scenery.cfg which is modified for Asia regions, Edwards_AFB, Berlin, Longleat, Istanbul, Reno, Las Vegas, Rio de Janeiro, St. Maaren, South America, Western North America, Eastern North America, Central North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Africa are all removed so that FSX can be run as slim as possible. Same principle applies to other areas.
Orbx includes both AU and NA regions in the Scenery Library even though either one must be chosen and activated via FTX Central. This approach removes unnecessary AU or NA files accordingly.

Will discuss fsx.CFG in next post before ending this series with the BASIC program.
