[FS Market]. I got it. It took time for my brain to understand. And.. just like that, reading a memo from Virtuali, i have understood that editors and developers will have to fight each other - more and more - for some extra gigabytes. Awful? Delightful?
When a new simmer comes to life and lines up for the first time on a runway, stirred, he starts with a capital of... 4 GB. Nothing more. And that's a limitation of Microsoft FSX. Try any hardware you want, add any ram memory, it will not change anything.
And that is because FSX engine is based on 32 bits processor. ( I understand clear until now ? ).
What the point ? If you want to fly under REX or Active Sky, if you want to fly some Passengers simulation, cockpit - copilot manager - with new traffic and sound environnment and then, use high-end aircraft plus a high-end airport, your FSX will simply throw up some OOM 'Out Of Memory".
FS Dreamteam's point about all of this is that they have developed Vancouver as if you are rooky simmer, flying on some FSX defaut (buuurk) aircraft.
Personaly, i perfectly understand the lesson. They are absolutely right to point out that huge limit. And we will will face it more and more in the next weeks (unless we use... X-plane (and i really don't want)).
But in the opposite, i disagree with the argument. If you sell an airport on the FS market, don't exclude simmers using PMDG NGX or DC9 Coolsky or Aerosoft eXtended or QW Bae146 etc.
And there is probably a question of hierarchy, scale of values. An aircraft first, and the world to explore then. That's the question. And it's up to you.
Good luck and good night !

Extract from Virtualy answer in FSDT foum, CYVR support topic :
" You will not be able to purchase or add ANYTHING anymore, because the more pre-existing stuff you have on the market, which will then fall into the "commonly used addons", the less memory you have for a NEW product, because if this year your FSX config starts at 3.2GB, the next year, if you keep adding things which you pretend to use, all together, without any limitation, your FSX will start maybe at 3.8GB, so ANY scenery added in such situation, even the smallest one, will NOT fit in memory, and you'll blame that poor future scenery developer, that maybe took great care to make a scenery that takes half size of a current one..."
