I have tried to load a flight at Tncm and Tffg and i got an immediate CTD !
This happened after the latest Update !!
I checked inside the folder and i Rename the Materials folder into TNCM_mymaterials .
No more CTD ! But i lost all of my Taxiway markings …
Any idea how can i solve this issue ?
Unfortunately you hit a known issue with the 3rd parties airports, which use same folder names for materials, leading to a CTD
You very likely have another airport with same mymaterials name somewhere
So renaming the folder as you did is fine
But you need also to update the layout.json file with the new name you assigned to the folder. Use a text editor for that
There’s also a utility that build the layout.json for you, it’s called MSFSLayoutGenerator.exe, just search the forum here aand you will find the download link
awdesigns need to update their package ASAP for this issue
In the root folder for awdesigns-tncm, there is a materialLibs subfolder
Under materialLibs subfolder is a textures subfolder
You should change the name of the textures subfolder to something like: awd-tncm-tffg-textures
Then, in the root awdesigns-tncm folder, there’s a layout.json file
Open it with a text editor or notepad
Change any occurence of materialLibs/textures
Be careful to keep the rest of text for each line changed
If you mess it up, just delete the complete awdesigns-tncm folder and redownload it from your profile content manager in MSFS
Apparently, the guy changed his mind, and does not want to create an update, so he throws the ball to Asobo, arguing this is Asobo’s fault if his airport CTDs
Unfortunately, another case of a lazy dev and quick money maker, dropping out his marketplace product and leaving the community to cope with that
Here is his answer:
Hello, there will be no new version issued until this ctd problem is addressed by Asobo, as the proposed ‘hotfix’ has not always been successful in resolving the loading crashes because of this we dont want do issue a fix just to get it undone in a later version
If you ever get to Greensboro NC, I’m buying you a beer! I was having this issue yesterday (hadn’t flown here in a while), and was able to replicate a CTD in exactly the same spot on approach each time. I deleted the addon and landed fine. By then, I was tired and decided to troubleshoot when I got up this morning. Got a CTD trying to start at TNCM, so I came here. I applied the fix exactly as you said, right down to the folder name. The only difference was that I moved the layout json to the desktop and used an auto-json app to replace then entire file. That way, I know for a fact that everything is current. My Caribbean paradise is now back to normal and I can keep delivering party-goers to the Sunset Bar & Grill!
