Freeze when displaying map or GPS

Recommended Posts

When I call up the GPS or the map view, FS freezes at certain areas.I have all FS Freeware mesh/water/roads/landclass installed, and some areas with different LODs overlap.Can this be the result of the max_terrain_vertex_level setting used?BTW, I consider mesh, vector objects (streams, roads,...) and landclass to be almost impossible to handle properly.Landclass needs to be at a very low layer, vector objects don't respect others at different levels, with mesh I'm unsure if FS handles different LODs at different layers for the same region properly.And, installing vector object files such as roads can be adventurous since in many cases, original BGLs need to be deleted.So, with the time I completely lost control what files come from which developer, and what depends on what (e.g. if you have this waters, you need to delete these BGLs, but how do I remember what files I deleted and need to restore if I installed other packages before which eventually overwrote exactly these original files?).I'm not surprised I get freezes and lockups, and sometimes CTDs. The inability to handle scenery objects properly IMHO is one of the worst things FS has, and I can only hope that new FS versions will take care of this...Andreas

I'm getting the same lockups. Anyone know as to the reason why?

They should be moved to a separate folder which you create. You can call this anything you want but it's obviously better if you use a name that will make it easy to identify later.

This is usually an AFCAD problem and has been discussed previously. However, can be difficult to pin down which AFCAD.Bruceb
