Just finished going around 18 on Thornberry Creek and plays/looks great AND it's only 169 Mb. Don't know why other designers can't put out leaner courses -  so many top heavy (for those of us with small SSD's 250Gb). My policy is any course over 350 Mb I take notes on and then take it off SSD.

I think I asked this before but forget answer. I was thinking of getting a large thumb drive (over 100 Gb) to put the over 350Mb courses. Then I could use thumb and SSD - can I use both and somehow switch between the two. My gut tells me NO.

I have 256 courses and some are QUITE large and I am only using 52.9 GB of space. I have an extra 512 GB SSD though but they are cheap and easy to install. Better yet buy an external hard drive and put JNPG on it and let it run from there. I don't know how slow many are but I have a 2 terabyte western digital my book essentials and I can play any game from it if I want because I have done it in the past.

I think you could create a virtual link to the flash drive but you better hope your flash drive is usb 3.0. Although my bet is that unless you have a laptop, you. Are best off getting a ssd drive off amazon. Right now they have a Black Friday deal for $18 for 128gb.

Yes I do have a laptop 250Gb SSD. A usb 3.0 thumb drive would be my choice but that SSD 128Gb looks like a good deal- don't know if laptop can have more than one SSD (didn't research it yet- will now before deal expires).
Also who has that sale - Amazon?
One more thing - my laptop is a Inspiron 15 7000 series in case someone beats me to it on finding out if I can put on 2 ssd's, Thanks.

It's actually not finished.

But there's really not much more to do. Just a few buildings.

Fantastic course, Mr Rose.  I got to play this course a LONG time ago and it definitely brought back some long-forgotten memories.

It's actually still a beta, but really not far from a finished product. I had a few more buildings I wanted to put in there.

I used to live on it many years ago when some of the holes were still under construction.
