So…I have had 2 months of trouble free simming…
I have been enjoying this sim and mainly use G/A…
I have however got a problem which has only started in the past 24hrs and dare I say it, since I added some content to the community folder.
My aircraft does not load correctly and after I hit the fly now button, I get a graphical glitch and have to shut down the sim to be able to restart it. This is now happening every session. It happended a couple of times over the past day and I was able to restart the sim which seemed to have reset something and enabled me to load the aircraft fine, but this time no amount of resets is clearing the issue.
When I am in the hanger and change the view to inside the cockpits I also get a graphical issue which I assume is related to the same problem in flight, as my virtual cockpit does not load. Photos attached. I change aircraft and it happens to all of them. I also notice when I change aircraft and shutdown the Sim, when I boot it back up, the aircraft loaded is not the last one I selected but the 172, which is where my problems began today.
I wondered if anyone has seen this issue, knows the cause and what I may do to reset.
I thought maybe my hardware was overcooking but Ive never had this problem in the past 2 months and only since I added liveries and OnAIR to my simulator. I have since deleted all liveries but still get this issue.
Looks pretty catastrophic!
If you cannot reverse uninstall your mods, your only option may well be a complete reinstall.
Hopefully, wiser heads than mine will come up with a procedure for you.
I’ve run into this problem among a few others, and I really hate to say this, but to correct each issue, the only solution was to uninstall everything then reinstall it. Although give it a bit to see if any others have a, ehm, less time and data consuming solution. Oo
Assuming you have the Steam version, If you have the hard drive space, I recommend copying the Packages subdirectories to another spot, that’s the bulk of the 100 GB download (actually about 98 or so), this will save you the interminable re-download and potentially any hiccups therein. You just need to move it back into the same spot it came from when you finish the initial 500MB install of the base program and it starts to download the 100GB. Stop the program when it starts the 100GB download, move the Packages back where it was before, restart the sim, it should recognize the packages with minimal updates downloaded thereafter.
Not sure if this trick works for FS bought through the MS Store. But that’s how all the reviewers got to distribute launch day copies quickly to multiple PC rigs for analysis.
