CTD With A Lot Of Sceneries Installed

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a rather weird problem with two Carenado aircraft.

The Bonanza A36 delivered with P3D V4 and the CJ2 both make P3D crash - but only if more than 310 scenery layers (count according to P3D scenery library) are installed. Imagine the fun trying to find that mistake...

Sometimes there is a Windows error message pointing to atc.dll, less often ai_player.dll.

It doesn't matter which scenery is installed last. It happens with freeware sceneries, it happens with Aerosoft's Aspen Extended (fully V4 compatible) - as soon as the count rises over 310, I can't choose one of the two planes mentioned above.

It does not happen with other aircraft, e.g. the DA42 from Alabeo.

Does anyone else have this problem?

I seriously doubt there is a problem with 310 scenery layers causing crashes!  That was just one common factor.  However, the number of sceneries installed in any sim enhances the chances for a crash especially in P3DV4 as most sceneries are not fully compatible with P3DV4. So, if you have any scenery (i.e., just one) that does not state it is compatible with P3DV4, then that's the issue.  The AVSIM CTD Guide provides solutions for the atc and ai_player errors.

Hi Jim,

sorry for not updating this, but the problem no longer exists. After a number of CTDs after adding the 310th scenery - and like I said, it didn't matter which scenery that was - I just pushed through and kept adding and adding more sceneries. And guess what: I'm at almost 370 now, and the problem vanished. But I still don't have the faintest idea as to what that was...
