Switching to daytime causes CTD during terrain load

Recommended Posts

I tried to install some scenery for South America, and the setup.exe crashed during the install. Then this very weird thing started happening:FS boots fine to the "Create a Flight" screen. From there, if I start a flight that is at nighttime, the sim works great. If I change the time to daylight I get a CTD during the terrain load.It doesn't matter where in the world I place my a/c. If I select a daylight time, the sim crashes, but at night it's fine.Before this I was having zero problems with FS9.I've searched extensively for info on this weirdness but nothing I've read relates to the exact problem I'm having. Has anyone seen this? Any suggestions for how to fix it?Thanks a lot.- Jev

Hi,You might need to get that scenery to properly install. If it half installed, it is possible that this half install is causing your problems during your day flights.Thanks,

Thanks, Jim. That's exactly what I had to do to correct the problem. Luckily I was able to complete the installation and everything is working again. Of course, I have no idea what the installer stepped on in the first place to mess up the daytime terrain textures for the rest of the world. And, given the complexity of FS9 installations, I probably never will.- Jev
