Forever loading issue after Sim Update 6

Then it has to be an issue not yet identified as you said, this will need to get patched.
The difficult part is it is not always reproducible, sometimes the airport loads just fine and other times you get stuck.

Just when you think nothing could be worse than CTD, Asobo introduces a new feature called “Stuck in the loading screen” that is far worse than CTD …Isn’t it beautiful?

Has happened a few times with me, thought it was maybe a server issue.
Waited 10 mins to spawn into Heathrow… Got fed up waiting, so Ctrl/Alt/Del - end task. Rebooted PC, tried the same thing again, and got into Heathrow in a min or so.

Yesterday evening I had exactly the same problem. Very long loading time to reach even the start menu. Then selecting FbW A320N, and starting airport ESNS (Orbx), and then click FLY. Then the loading screen again took about 15 minutes (maybe more) and CTD.

Tried it over and over again, but only got long loading screens…

Gosh I hope they can fix this one, once you get in it’s really nice but the constant ctrl/alt/delete reboot is getting old

My problems only went away when I did a complete (from scratch) reinstall. These failures to load into flights have to be reported through the normal channels.

Oh no say it isn’t so :man_facepalming:. A complete reinstall?

No need to be so dramatic, the issue is indeed real but has only affected me in 2 flights out of 13-14, so it is not suuuper widespread.
I am sure Asobo will patch it soon, SU6 was amazing, if this is the only inconvenience we get I sign it.

How many GB files do you have in your community folder?
Mine is about 700 GB
hundreds of payware airports and other stuff, so you can’t care as much as I do because you using autogen airports and sceneries, that’s why ur not impacted that much…

I am using 250Gb in addons, and I thought that was a lot, did you buy the entire marketplace? xD

Deleting the Content.xml file solved this for me.

Hmmm - not a complete solution as I’ve now had the issue again. ORBX is suggesting deleting the the Simulator .dat files as well - in here:
AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\SceneryIndexes*.dat)
so that’s my next port of call.

Everyone, I suspect they are having server issues, based on the number of times the system has gone down over the last few days. Also, some issues with Windows 11 and AMD chips. Printer driver on network system as well. I have NOT experienced issues, but then mostly fly UISA, and have not flown since SU6, just made sure it started. Now, aint no expert, but for over two days I could not even get the update because of server issues. If any of the locations you are having issues with are dependent on contacting a server, my guess is that is the reason, however, some tried in Safe Mode, and still no success. I dont think it is totally related to SU6, but might be something which was broken before, and and now has come to light. I will try spawning at the locations listed above and see what happens, but wont be till this evening East Coast USA time. I will use the F-14 because it’s the most fun plane, as fall back, Boeing 747 as well, since trying to make that one work right too.

As aside, massive Windows 11, update downloading now.

I tried this after everything else left me still stuck and deleted the .dat files and instantly saw a huge improvement. I am not saying by any means I am fixed as was one airport I tried but going from not being able to load into a airport to being loaded in 30 seconds, with community folder installed is hopeful. Thank you so much for sharing!

Edit: So loaded for another flight in another country and was basically a 30 second wait then instant load. This seems to be worth doing for sure!
