TAXIWAYS WITH NO TEXTURE MAGENTA COLOR

Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone,

Last night I reported the problem to Zendesk. Bright magenta untextured taxiways appear, in my case, at various airports (for instance, KACT, Waxo, Texas).

It is very annoying.

Please, if there is anyone with the same problem (or if you know how to fix it), let us know.

Thank you.

Did you update to the last patch? Check for an update in the MS store or Steam whichever one you used. I had that happen once in alpha and I just needed to install an update.

Yes, I installed the update without a problem. I had the bad textures before and after the patch.

But, I have to say that after downloaded the MSFS 2020 the install lasted a very long time and stopped one or twice times (I don't know why. I have a good Internet connexion!). 

Perhaps in the process one o more textures went missing (the bright magenta color can reveal that those taxiways have no texture at all).

Thank you, anyway!

I ahd the same in teh beta. A full reinstall fixed it. :S

Wow!

And what I have to do? Uninstall MSFS and install it again?? 

I remember the ordeal that was the first installation!

Thank you for the advise!

(I wonder if anyone knows what texture is missing...)

hmm, not sure. It was a collection of texs missing as far as I remember.

 

Hope it worked out for you!

Hi,

A collection? I thought it was just one or two textures missing. 

I think I'm going to wait what the people of Zendesk say (if finally they say something!).  

Besides, one thing worries me: what happens if after the reinstall the same thing happens again? 

Thank you for your support.

I solved the problem! It wasn't a texture issue.

The magenta color was caused by something I changed accidentally in the DEV MODE menu (I can't remember now what exactly was).

I'm sorry to have bothered you.

Thank you.

I have the same problem and I didn't mess with the DEV MODE. However, if there is a way to fix it via the DEV MODE, please try to recreate your steps. There is nothing else online about it.

In Developers (Dev Mode):

1) Go to Options.

2) Go to PBR per Channel (at the bottom of the Menu).

3) Check that everything is disabled.

4) Exit Dev Mode.

5) Turn off the PC (in my case it is necessary because after exiting Dev Mode the terrain doesn't look good, I don't know why).

6) Go back into Flight Simulator and check that the problem has disappeared.

That's all.

Thanks for the quick reply, John. I went into Dev Mode and everything was disabled already on each channel of the PBR. Odd that I would have the same problem as you, even though I never entered Dev Mode. I reported it to the Zendesk, it happened after the latest update I believe. Who know's what could cause such a thing.
