  • Version 1.1.2 April 14, 2021

    Changes v1.1.2:

    * Changed Materiallib name. It seems like this caused incompatibilities.

    Thank you very much to sttovo for pointing that out to me! With all the user feedback taken into consideration the issue should be resolved now!
    You guys are amazing, thanks for all the support!

  • Version 1.1.1 April 14, 2021

    Changes v1.1.1:

    Some guys were receiving CTDs or other errors when approaching the airport or even loading into the airport. As these errors were not happening on my end there is not much I can do to prevent this at the moment.

    * This update contains the same project as before, but recompiled with the newest SDK 0.12 available since World Update 4.

    Hopefully this will prevent crashes and errors. Please report if it helps or if I need to look for another solution!

    IF YOU WEREN'T RECEIVING CRASHES THERE IS NO NEED TO UPDATE!

    Thank you all an best regards,
    Troglo

    Sorry, no real update:

    Had to remove the included navigation charts due to a copyright strike.
    You can still find and use them for your personal simulation usage here: https://eaip.austrocontrol.at/lo/210225/ad_2_lowk.htm


    A bigger update, including surrounding industries of LOWK is on its way though!

      Can you send me a screenshot in a private message? Thats really strange. Random buildings shouldn't appear on airport areas...

      @everyone: Issue was resolved and was not caused by the airport LOWK!

    The scenery works perfectly! I don't know why some CTD have problems here, but that is definitely not the airport! I just did several tests and everything is ok! The airport itself could be visually improved a bit, but otherwise it looks good.
    • Troglodytus
      6 day(s) ago
      I think it was the airport in a sense, that the included materiallib collided with other materiallibs and caused some crashes. Very sorry for all caused inconvenience. Shouldn't have happened if I wouldve named my libraries correctly.

      Which visual improvements do you have in mind?
  • sttovo
    6 day(s) ago
    I might have a fix I sent to Troglodytus. It's working for me at least.

    For those comfortable messing with addons:

    1) Rename the "mymaterials" folder under the "MaterialLib" folder to "LOWKmymaterials" (it can be anything, just needs to be unique).
    2) Rebuild or update the layout.json file to use the new path.

    Start/Restart MSFS.

    NOTE too I have 600+ addons installed and this works for me. I hope this works for everyone!!!

    Hello, i have downloaded the latest update but unfortunately the sim is still crashing on loading the flight.
    • eLum1nX

      Hello,
      anecdotal evidence is suggesting that the "rolling cache" can contain data which, when combined with the installation of a new airport, cause either anomalies or a CTD.

      It is also the case that the content.xml file is only updated to add products, it does not update when a product has been removed.

      The recommendation is therefore that before attempting to use a newly installed scenery product, both the rolling cache and the Content.xml file are deleted.

      Note: for the Microsoft Store version of MSFS default location of the Content.xml file is

      C:\Users\your name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Content.xml.

      Please note:

      If you cannot see the appdata folder, you may need to enable "Show hidden files, folders and drives" in your

      Windows File Explorer view settings.

      The Steam version is C:\Users\Your name\appdata\roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Content.xml

      Other versions of MSFS may have the Content.xml file in a different location.

    hello, I can confirm CTD when starting at LOWG and heading to LOWK after WU4. I'm Downloading your latest update now and will report after the test flight.
    • Troglodytus
      6 day(s) ago
      Thank you for reporting. I am currently looking into the matter deeply, but I got no idea. The most urgent unanswered question is: Why is it working fine for me? ...

      I spawned on the RWY and took off... No CTD
  • BoernieG

    HI, since I have the newest version of LOWK installed, I get CtD while starting a flight around this area (also if I try to start from LOWG). Any idea?
    • Troglodytus
      10 day(s) ago
      Can not reproduce this issue myself, but it sounds like a common "modellib error". Some other mod might be interfering. For a quick solution you can try to rename the folder "troglodytus-airport-lowk-klagenfurt" into something like "aaa-troglodytus-......." because mods are loaded alphabetically and this way lowk is loaded before other mods can interfere. Long term you might want to find out which mod is causing troubles, because it can affect other mods as well!

      If the quick and dirty solution does not help you, please write me a message, then we can try to find another solution!

      Thank you! Ich fear there is one of the newest sceneries causing this problemj. I will switch them off part for part.
    • BoernieG
      9 day(s) ago
      Hm, now I switched off all my community sceneres (airports aswell landmarks) but there is no chance to start your LOWK anymore. I also deleted my catch. That's really sad, because I liked it so much.
    • Troglodytus
      9 day(s) ago
      Can you try to delete LOWK completely, download&install again ?
      That's very strange, haven't heard that before, that it will just crash!
    • PredTD80

      I have the same issue,; CTD when loading the airport. I have your airports from Austria and 2 paywares. No scenery. I have the 3 depencies installed with the latest version too.
    • Troglodytus
      9 day(s) ago
      Strange. I will have a look into this. Sorry for the inconveniece in the meantime.
    • PredTD80

      Hello, I tried to troubleshoot a possible overlap with another add-on by removing all my non-marketplace stuff. I had only the dave3D people/animals + mikeat runway/ & assetpack + LLOWK. I still have the CTD when the game loads starting from the airport. Maybe the issue is in the assets ? I did not remove my payware from the marketplace, but I doubt that would conflict. I have only airports/airplanes, no scenery stuff.
    • Troglodytus
      9 day(s) ago
      Just tried to reproduce the issue, but I can't. LOWK works fine on my system. When you downloaded the latest version, did you just overwrite the previous folder or delete it completely before installing?
    • PredTD80
      8 day(s) ago
      I always delete first. I’ll do some more tests tomorrow. 😊
    • Troglodytus
      8 day(s) ago
      Thanks I will do too! I am very sorry you guys are experiencing these CTDs. There is a good chance this is due to an error on my side, on the other hand I just read about many errors and bugs since yesterday, as Asobo had done something to their servers in preparation for the upcoming update.
      There is also a big chance many creators will have to fix their airports and assets again because of World Update 4. Let's see. 😅
    • MmAaMmOo

      Same here when on Final to LOWK from LOSM hat my first CTD ever 😉
    • Troglodytus
      8 day(s) ago
      crazy! Thank you for your feedback!
      I will dig in and try to find out, whats going on. But I assure you, I did everything properly when creating. No idea why this is happening, and why it is still working fine for me!
    • Troglodytus
      8 day(s) ago
      hi @boernieG @PredTD80 and @MmAaMmOo

      I tried to reproduce the error, but no success. The airport seems to work fine for me. I have no idea why the CTDs are happening to you guys.
      I suggest we wait for World Update 4 to drop, which is announced to be published on 13.04.2021. Either it will work again then when Asobo finished the work on their servers, or on the other hand I have to update some things by then.

      Lets hope for the best. My intent is to provide a good simulation experience, not crashes. Sorry for the inconvenience!
      Best regards
    • BoernieG

      Thank you for your support! Unfortunatly I don't have the older version of LOWK anymore. It would be interessting to check if this version works for me.
    • Troglodytus
      8 day(s) ago
      Highly doubt it, because I did not change anything significant regarding the airport itself. Did just change and add some buildings. If you crash on approach, it should be due to the airport having some error. I will dig into the waypoints and approaches if the WU4 won't help!
    • PredTD80
      7 day(s) ago
      I am sure there is no need what so ever for any kind of apology for a possible issue. We are all very happy with the great work you put out there for us all to enjoy !
      I have a payware airport that has been causing CTD’s for some 4 months or so. The developper only recently updated with a fix, and it did not even fix it...
      Here you are, being extremely helpful on the first mention of trouble. Noone could wish for anything more than that.

      I did some more tests today but I could not get around the issue. It’s a good idea to see if the update had something to do with the issue. I do hope it can get fixed, because your airports are great !

      Ps: I did have the first ctd when I was inbound and it happend when I was selecting an approach on the gns 530 as I was flying inbound to the airport. It was after that that I tried starting from it and had the CTD loading it. Maybe this info can help if it’s not fixed with WU4.

      Again, thank you so much for all your work ! It can’t be said enough !
    • Troglodytus
      7 day(s) ago
      Thanks mate!

      I talked to some folks and they are not getting these crashes. So its really strange.

      Yeah, your insights help a lot because I was already thinking about a waypoint issue being the root of this problem. As the generic ones seemed to be correct, I did not change the approaches themselves, only the ILS positions, angles and Tx powers.

      To clarify my previous thoughts: There are two kinds of waypoints (that matter): normal waypoints and terminal_waypoints. Latter are inherent to a specific airport, normal waypoints, however, are used commonly and shared between all airports and routes. It is a commonly known bug or "feature" to get CTDs when using the wrong type of waypoint in an approach.

      As I did not change any of the approaches, but only use the generic ones, I now suspect some kind of Asobo (library) update changed some waypoints to be a normal waypoint rather than a terminal waypoint. I will try and sit down and recreate all approaches and used waypoints manually. Not sure how quickly I can get to it.
      I am by no means an expert on the SDK as I am only familiar with it for a few months, but given all your feedbacj and error descriptions thats my best guess, so I will try my best to fix it that way. Hopefully it works.

      In the meantime: Can you try and deinstall LOWK and fly the exact same approach with the generic airport? Do you get CTDs with the generic approach as well?

      Thanks a lot!
    • PredTD80
      7 day(s) ago
      I tried to reproduce with the default airport, but I don’t have the issue there. However I am not sure I did the exact same thing, but I did select the airport in the gns530 and tried the same thing.

      I did a 2nd test too, I removed my 2 payware airports in Austria to see if they did not interfere, but that was also negative.

      This one is hard too troubleshoot 😊
      It’s odd that some people have the issue and some don’t. As you can’t reproduce it, it’ll be hard. Let’s hope WU4 gives a more consistent behavior.
    • BoernieG
      7 day(s) ago
      Maybe one of the payware airports is causing this crashes. I will test it today, because orbx sent some updates (the last payware I installed before those troubles was from orbx). We will see. I will keep you informed.
    • BoernieG
      7 day(s) ago
      @PREDTD80: Could you tell me, what payware-ap you have installed? I will compair it with mine.
    • PredTD80

      I have LOGO and LOWZ in Austria. I have more payware, but those are closest, the other ones are not in Austria.
    • BoernieG
      7 day(s) ago
      So the only one I have also is LOWZ. LOGO I don't know? That's payware? I really hope that the update will help. Otherwise I would miss this beautiful LOWK scenery. 😞
    • satexpert123

      Same here. CTD already at the start! The new update to 1.15.7.0 has unfortunately not improved anything...
    • Troglodytus
      6 day(s) ago
      Hi guys,

      I am still really sorry, I can not reproduce the error. It just works for me. I can even send you screenshots to prove that, if you want. I just flew an ILS approach on RWY 28R and there were no crashes or unexpected behaviour on my side. I also checked all my textures, gltf 3D models and XML codes, there is no error.

      As said before, my best guess is that there is an issue with the waypoints, but then again it wouldn't work for me either and crash on my end as well.

      As a first step for a solution, I have just recompiled the project with the newest SDK 0.12 that's out since yesterdays World Update 4. Maybe this will fix things for you guys again? For me personally it made no difference, I tested both version and both work just fine for me.
      Upload of this new compilation will follow shortly!

      So as it worked for me til the update yesterday, It didn't work since the update yesterday ... 😞
      V1.1.1 didn't work either...
      You don't have to fly an Approach, just Take-Off at LOWK, and it crashes shortly before loading...
    • Troglodytus
      6 day(s) ago
      Did that, no crash for me. its really strange.
    • satexpert123

      Unfortunately no improvement in 1.1.1. CTD when loading !
    • sttovo
      6 day(s) ago
      Add me to the crash list with previous and current version. I'll keep trying to see if anything helps. I did try to start far away from the airport and fly in, but still got a crash as I approached.

      Edit: With ONLY this addon installed, it loads properly.

      Edit2: With the 2 required addons added to Community (so 3 total), the flight loads properly. Still testing.

    Love the Airport...really well done. Any chance to get the blue stand Markings? Or are they just missing for me?
    • Troglodytus
      1 month(s) ago
      No, you are absolutely correct, they are still missing. It requires me to (I believe) do 14 unique textures in photoshop, thats why I was hesitant so far. I noted it into my to do list and will try to implement it, when I get back to this project!
    • Troglodytus
      17 day(s) ago
      I have included the blue markings in the current version. However, there is no chance that I could include the small marking numbers inside the blue triangles. They are too small and would just look like a blue dot :/

    I was at The Sport Hotel (in 1998 & 2002). The husband of the owning couple died sometime between those years, sad to hear but glad they were still there in 2002. Sadly, she must of sold the place as it's now a parking lot (when I checked google maps the other day). This DL helps me re-live those fond memories - Thank-you!
    • Troglodytus
      1 month(s) ago
      Sorry to hear. I myself do not know about a Sport Hotel, in 2002 I was still very young.
      Sorry to say, that the airport itself is currently undergoing big changes. Both of the Hangars were torn down and gave way for the construction of a whole new airport. This addon is meant to be a memorial in time for reliving all sorts of flying-memories!
      Thank you for your comment!
