Stuck on blue loading bar with SU5 update

since the SU5 update and still with the hotfix today i am stuck on the blue loading bar tried starting the game with an empty community folder and the game is still stuck on the blue loading bar i have no idea ■■■ is going on

I had the same problem and finally just uninstalled and reinstalled the sim and it works perfectly now.That being said, I still haven’t tried it yet with the patch that was released this morning.

I feel your frustration. Prior to the hotfix, I had no issues whatsoever. Everything was perfect and with high frame rates at that. Now with latest hotfix, I have the same issue as you and with reduced frame rates. Now I share the same frustration as everyone else. I welcome myself to the club. Good luck.

going to do a full reinstall i think to see it that helps

holly ■■■■ just got my game to load up after bashing my head against a wall for days trying to find what was in my community folder stopping the game from loading up.
just found out it was spring a fall season pack by bijan habashi i got from the marketplace i deleted it a bang game loaded up with everything i had in my community folder

I have a Season update for SU5. If you bought from simmarket, you can download the new update. If you bought from marketplace, email me to get the update. bijanstudiola@gmail.com

Moved to #third-party-addon-discussion:tools-utilities as the solution is removing a third party add-on.

yeah thanks i got it from the marketplace

I too had the same problem - With forever loading bar. I deleted all the extra add-on mods and planes I bought through the Microsoft game which included the spring and summer pack and was able to play the game again.

The loading time now is astonishingly fast and I wonder if any of the other mods and add-ons were causing problems as well as the spring and fall pack? I’ll spend the next couple days reloading them one by one but for now I’m flying.
