You should limit this to non developers and non testers for obvious reasons.

 

Quite right but too late:(

When you get the final results, I would bet real $$$ it will be very close to the mean average of all the guesses. Whatever that is...

 

I would bet closer to the "happier" average...

A tester isn't going to get the final download to test, and even the devs wont know what size it is until its ready to compress and upload

Bring it on.:lol:

Ok let us see. If you take into account the size of the last 100 up dates and the number of line items in each up date. Then we can come up with an average of download size to line item. Then we have to mod (flight sim word) this number by the amount of hype in the forum, witch (night witch, if u can find one) is a good indication of content of the update. Now we have a good place to start. You then have to get rid of the outliers (get rid of influence of forum trolls) X the awesomeness (anytime you have P-38 and P51 together you must use this word)of the update. This gives us a factor to apply to our prime number that we the divide by the number of updates this month will result in the size of the update.

 

Now you may ask how I know this and what kind of experience do I have in the field of sats , well I was a stats guy in the military (CAMS for you USAF Aircraft guys) for the B-2 Bombers.

 

Factor comes out to 1(because this is the #1 update) X Prime number of 14.356GB (just a guess) divided by 1(number of updates) = 14.4 rounded up😏

Wait, what a tester showed up:o:.  Back to work we need the 3.201 yesterday, according to some.  My guess 6.235.  Oh wait if testers are posting then that means?, soon very soon if 48 hrs plus is soon enough:lol:.

So, adding up all of the various guesses contained within this thread, and averaging it out, gives an update size of 6.73Gb - this is it...for sure...

Likely I guess but it seems that testers being under a strict NDA don't want to go into grey waters by taking part here anyway, so it ends up as a non-issue. Hooray!

We've already got that figure. We're going to six decimal places if Pi is your number - 3.141593?

I'm afraid that position has been taken by the intrepid Stoopy.

 

Please check the sheet; we need a unique number.
