Maximum size of FSUIPC.ini

Recommended Posts

A very simple question: since many years, I add and add new planes with mouse macros in my FSUIPC.ini, and I have now more than 2000 lines in it, the size is 65 ko:

You don't have every livery and variant of every plane with its own otherwise identical details, do you? If so you should be using common profiles for common aircraft. It would be much more efficient.

How far can I go without problem ?

The size is limited by section only -- a section being one with a heading like [Axes ...]. For efficiency in processing parameters, FSUIPC loads each section at a time and currently it does limit sections to a max of 120000 bytes.

Thank you Pete.

Of course, I use common profiles, but there are so many aircrafts to personalize...that makes a lot of sections.

The sections are not so big, the most complex is that of the PMDG 737NGX on my Goflight modules. I must also confess that I do not use the lua, as I am not a programmer at all....

I am very satisfied with your answer.

Do you mean also that if a section is not used, it is not loaded ?
