P3Dv5 Crash on ILS

Post by petakas » Sat Dec 26, 2020 3:10 am

In P3D HF1 installed Athens by
1. running "FlyTampa_Athens_FSX_P3D_16.exe" that I had from my purchase
2. then running "FlyTampa_Athens_Update_P3Dv5.exe"
I disabled any AES options to troubleshoot but did not make any difference.

Yet my P3Dv5 crashes about 11nm out (from North and South) when I'm about to establish the ILS.

In "FlyTampa-Configurator (Prepar3d)" all looks ok for Athens.

Any suggestions ?

I have all ORBX Global Base, Vector & EuropeLC scenery installed and no other scenery in the LGAV area.
FlyTampa Athens is in higher priority in scenery library.

Q: Shall I have Athens installed as a standalone Scenery in the Scenery library or as an Addon via the ...AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\add-ons.cfg ?

All my other FlyTampa sceneries and the FlyTampa Libraries are installed this way via the installer but Athens is installed the conventional way (i.e. in the Scenery Library the old school way)

Since I have posted this thread I still keep having occasional sim crashes and LGAV as soon as I get within 12~15nm of it.
Anyone else having the same issue on P3Dv5 ?

I have identified the problem occurring during NIGHT time.
during DAY time I don't have crashes.
I even disabled all Athens features from the configurator but P3D5.1 still crashes at night.
Simplest test is being at the apron at day time and switching time to Night.
Once it tries to load night environment P3D crashes.

I have no other scenery add on's in the area except ORBX Global stuff.
