Missing Packages/Official content

Recommended Posts

My MSFS Packages/Community has the mods and payware airports as expected.  My Packages/Official folder is where it should be but all its content is gone.  Earlier this morning I had deleted one asobo airport to accommodate a payware version, but it appears that in doing so I must have somehow caused the entire folder content to subsequently disappear.  So, here is my question for the forum: Has anyone encountered this result and could they share their conclusions with me? By the way, I have the Steam deluxe/premium versions and have already tried the validation of local files. I'm reluctant to uninstall/reinstall the entire program, but would do so if there are no ready alternatives.

Regards,

Pete

In the Content Manager do the items show as installed? Try updating all and see if that restores them. If they won't update then a reinstall is probably in the future.

Thanks for the response, Vic.  I started my Steam version and MSFS prompted me to download 98 gig of "recommended content". I hit the install button and am watching the download. Don't know how this all happened but, if it works out, it will be a long time before I open the Packages/Official folder again.

Possibly a third party installed scenery displaces the MSFS default installed scenery as it did in previous versions of FS?

It has been mentioned before that running an integrity check on steam deletes your files and trigger a reinstall

Maybe, but I lost all the Packages/Official content.  I deleted the asobo specific airport only after trees appeared on the tarmac of my payware version this morning. I'll amend this post if the update corrects my problem (and trees at the payware airport).

I'm not very familiar yet with the 2020 file structure, but in earlier versions several default airports often were located in one file.  Possibly the trees are an issue with the third party scenery?

Everytime you perform a validation of local files or an integrity check of MSFS files via Steam, all your official content will be entirely deleted and you'll need to download MSFS again, that's why it prompted you to download 95+GB of data.
