Narodnaya Solyanka On SSD - No difference ?

I recently bought a ssd for stalker. It loaded much faster. But it turns out there is really no difference on Narodnaya Solyanka.It's confusing how there is no difference between my 25mb/s hard drive and 300mb/s SSD

If you still have the same CPU that would seem to make sense. It doesn't matter how fast your HDD can handle data, it still has to be processed by that same flake of silicon at the velocities it has always performed at.

That may be completely wrong, of course. But if you have a very fast HDD and very fast RAM and on-board graphics, and still have no improvement, the bottleneck would have to be the CPU.

Narodnaya Solyanka mods have been somewhat slow on my ssd at well.
It's the nature of the beast!

I wouldn't expect much change - even years ago when velicoraptors were made available, I rigged two up in RAID-0 (this on an Intel-based system, running overclocked core2quad and DDR3) and it didn't improve handling of larger mods... first one I remember *really* having issues with was SmP during beta-testing, lol.

Vanilla loads fast, as everything is pre-packaged. See, best I can tell, x-ray loads all the vanilla .db files regardless, then whatever is in the gamedata file replaces the .db counterpart. For some files (i.e. some sounds and textures), if there's no replacement in gamedata, it takes it from the .db - which still requires the engine to interact with a large archive.

Many large mods can take ages to load, where-as mini-mods load much faster.
