CTD When Internet Connection is lost

I am running the Microsoft Windows Store version of the game. It seems whenever the internet disconnects and I have to reboot my modem/router, MSFS crashes to the desktop without any errors. My PC is connected via ethernet cable to the router and I am on the latest version of Windows 10 and the latest version of MSFS as of today.

This has happened multiple times and it happens even while just being on the main menu. I go to my router to do a simple turn off and on. But as soon as I turn off my router, MSFS crashes to the desktop without any messages.

Why can’t it just seamlessly switch to an offline mode when the internet disconnects??

I got this right now too. I was flying and CTD. No errors. I restarted sim and got connection lost message.

There is a service outrage currently which may be causing this:

No, this is not due to service outage. This is a bug with the game and I am able to reproduce it.

  • Steps to reproduce
  1. Start the game and go to the main menu. Or even if you are on a flight in the game - it does not matter.
  2. Turn off your router/modem or disable the network interface on windows.
  3. Game will freeze and crash to the desktop without any error messages.

None of my other apps or past simulators do this and it is very unfortunate if I am in flight in the game and my internet happens to go out for a few minutes.

@SelfishWinner I can confirm that losing internet connection while MSFS is running causes a ctd.

A few weeks ago (in another thread about playing offline) I posted the same information: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/playing-offline/258280/19

It might be worth filing a ticket with zendesk.

This has not been fixed yet. Thiss warrants an urgent hotfix and cannot be ignored. If you have somewhat unreliable WiFi, like me, this happens basically every flight.

Mod Edit Translation:
For days my simulator is disconnected from data without having made changes, which loses all the virtues of the program, having me an Internet service with enough supply of Megas.
I request answer / solution to this problem.
Thank you

Desde hace días mi simulador se desconecta de datos sin haber realizado cambios, con lo cual se pierden todas las virtudes del programa, teniendo yo un servicio de Internet con suficiente suministro de Megas.
Solicito respuesta / solución a este inconveniente.

the same here. I have 600Mb/s internet and it constantly disconnects from Bing and photogrammetry due to lack of data

I got the same problem, CTD whenever I get disconnected from the internet while on MSFS 2020.

I wonder if I am having the same issue.
I am having to tether to my mobile because my Internet Provider is a joke.

I get frequent freezes and crashes as the internet comes in and out as the mobile signal drops out.
