Brief description of the issue:

If I leave the sim running for more than 5-10 minutes while not actively flying/watching AI, the sim locks up almost every time. I do a lot of editing in the SDK and this issue causes me to lose a lot of time due to having to reload the sim all the time. Whether I step a way for a quick break or using something else on the computer for a few minutes, the sim freezes. I don’t get any errors, but am unable to do anything in the sim and have to close it via the task manager.

Detailed steps to reproduce the issue encountered:

Load up the sim and let it sit. I am running the latest beta version, but this has been happening previous to the beta.

Hi @SageLobster5901,

I’ve moved your topic into Crashes (CTDs) whilst other users help you troubleshoot and try to narrow down the issue.

At first glance, it sounds to me like a graphics driver issue but other users may have different ideas.
