Most lag in FlightGear is caused by AI traffic. Especially heavy models need some time to load, eg the [[Grumman F-14 Tomcat|F-14]] or the [[Rockwell B-1B Lancer|B-1B]]. Everytime a new aircraft enters the network your computer need to load that particular aircraft. That creates a lag. The bussier the place you fly the more lag you'll get; eg flying around KSFO will generate more lag than a flight near EGLL, since there is more traffic near KSFO.

Most stuttering, or lag, in FlightGear is caused by AI traffic. Especially heavy models need quite some time to load, eg the [[Grumman F-14 Tomcat|F-14]] or the [[Rockwell B-1B Lancer|B-1B]]. Every time a new aircraft enters your local area, your computer has to load the model for that particular aircraft. The time required to read the data from the drive creates a stutter, or lag, which can range from a minor annoyance to a crash. The busier the place you fly, the more lag you'll get; eg flying around KSFO will generate more lag than a flight near EGLL, since there is more traffic near KSFO.
