Long Load for Very Small File

I loaded the iniBuilds LAX airport, and for the most part it's great but there are some buildings that tend to shimmer quite a bit. I created a small mod which contains ONLY three exclusion rectangles and one rectangle to exclude them, and that works fine, except that when I add this mod to my startup, the time from when I select my flight to the time I spawn at the airport goes from about 40 seconds to over three minutes. I have tested this numerous times, and each time it comes out about the same. I've had long load times on other mods that I've created, but I assumed that was due to adding dozens of objects to the airport. But just four rectangles? I know that compared to other users four minutes may not be a lot but it sure seems to be extreme.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello @DestructZero

Can you provide us with your package so we can run some tests please?
(Instructions in section 3 here: How to report a bug or crash - MSFS DevSupport ( )

I made some tests but it tended to reduce loading times rather than increase it so maybe we're not doing the same thing.
