  1. What are you guys talking about? This has been identified like two weeks ago. It's not a bad AI traffic file. The issue disappears once this file is deleted: So for reasons not yet identified, one BGL file from the latest SODE jetways download causes this CTD. Remove it and the CTD is gone. Works perfectly fine for me, and also for other users, as can be read in the linked thread.
  2. Michael, not all of your suggestions are good ones. If any ICAO code is used by an airline for PAX as well as cargo aircraft, then the code needs to be amended by the letter C. So it would be UAEC instead of UAE, otherwise P3D would start sending passenger aircraft to cargo gates. Same for EVA, MAS and some others.
  3. Hi Oliver, it's only the airport not covered with snow, so it seems to be the same issue that you already know about. Thanks for fixing!
  4. Can someone using ORBX Germany South please check seasons on their system? When I use the configurator to select Germany South seasons / textures, I never see the snow-covered ground texture, it always stays green regardless of the Winter month I choose, even for the Hard Winter season of P3D in January / February. If I de--select ORBX GES seasons in the configurator, I get a proper snow-covered ground texture in the Winter months. But obviously I no longer have it matched to ORBX GES textures. So something seems to be broken with the seasons definitions if ORBX GES is selected, preventing the sim from loading the proper ground imagery? Can anyone confirm? Simply load a scenario in January or February if you use GES and have it enabled in the configurator. See if you ever get snow-covered ground.
  5. Thanks for that, I can confirm deleting that dummy file while using the new SODE jetways does not produce any CTD. Great find
  6. Thank you Oliver, testing with Version 1000 of the SODE jetways I can confirm that the CTD does not occur.
  7. @mopperle It is really quite annoying for Aerosoft to constantly close support topics, even though the case has NOT been verified to be closed! So I hereby reopen the topic of CTD at EDDM, since I too get this issue. The Event Viewer shows a generic Kernelbase crash: Faulting application name: Prepar3D.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5eebf566 Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.19041.388, time stamp: 0x3cc24707 Exception code: 0xc0020001 Fault offset: 0x0000000000023e49 Faulting process ID: 0x2278 Faulting application start time: 0x01d666b4db94033d Faulting application path: D:\P3Dv5\Prepar3D.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\KERNELBASE.dll Report ID: eee2b7b1-58cc-47df-8ab4-159887ffd3e8 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: In my case I tested using the FSL A320. I need to add that the CTD did NOT occur before the update. The CTD also does not occur if I load into the airport using the default P3D Avatar. And I don't have this CTD on any other add-on airport when loading with the aircraft mentioned. I'll be glad to give further info, or even try using the old SODE jetways if you'd like. But right now I await your response, since you obviously "believe this topic has been answered". Let me know if I can be of assistance.
  8. ...and all the other issues to be corrected, hopefully! Would be nice to have an idea of when to expect the update, it has been very silent ever since we've reported all the issues. And the AFCAD has been improved by Oliver many months ago but still isn't available anywhere? Markus
  9. Hi Oliver, I know the runway concepts of LSZH are not at all AFX friendly, unfortunately. Whatever you do, here's the three guidelines I hope you can comply with: IFR traffic MUST NOT land on runway 32, this is completely unrealistic due to terrain and buildingsIFR traffic MUST NOT land on runway 10More than one runway has to be active Whatever else remains is ok, even if it's not consistent with a real runway concept. All departures on runway 10/28 and all landings on runway 16/34 perhaps? Unfortunately the only professional source for the public was closed around a year ago, there had been a database by Eurocontrol which is no longer available for the public. Drop me an e-mail if ever you're not sure about a code, that's all I can offer right now. One airline flying to LSZH that had its ICAO code changed not too long ago is US Airways. Used to be USA, but now it's AWE. I see your problem. However I strongly suggest to apply the FSX standards to an FSX scenery, and the FS9 standards for an FS9 scenery. I too use some FS9 AI models with my UT2 traffic, but I did change their radius to FSX standard. Those of us who stick to FSX standards should not be "punished" when buying a FSX-scenery just because some people still use FS9 models without modifying them. So please keep it standard and simple. FSX sceneries get FSX radius. That's what SimWings does and it would be nice if developers all could do the same. I know of no other windsocks than the ones you already added. Thanks for making them orange colour, this will help to actually see them If possible could you make the moving sock a bit larger? The size you have in now might be ok for a small airfield, but at a big airport they're so hard to see. At least the ones in LSZH are larger than yours. But that's just a detail, if too complicated I'm happy with the colour change. Thanks a lot, Markus
  10. I've bought Zürich 2012 and must say I am VERY happy with the visual quality, the modeling and texturing is superb, clearly the best looking LSZH scenery so far. And all this with an excellent frame rate. So thank you very much for this. I've found a couple of bugs and issues I would like to mention. Some are just details and others rather major ones that need an update. 1.: AFCAD / AFX file: This airport REALLY needs a multiple runway AFX file! It is impossible to handle the amount of traffic in Zurich if the aircraft are departing and arriving on the very same runway. The included AFX file results in a single runway for both, resulting in 20 aircraft waiting in front of the runway with no way of departure because there's always one on final. So we really need a second runway to be used. If you do not know how to make a multiple runway AFX file, ask Mike Strasser from Sim Wings, he knows. 2.: Again AFX file: Airline assignments are incomplete and erroneous. The ICAO code for Swiss Intl. Air Lines is SWR and NOT CRX. Yes I know it is wrong in UT2. Anyway, all the gates that have CRX should also get an SWR in addition. CRX is no longer a valid ICAO code. But you can leave it in, doesn't hurt. But it needs SWR. One World carriers should be at terminal 1, like BAW or RJA, also NLY. The ramp stands west of threshold 34 should be made bigger in diameter. Those need to be available for heavies. As it is now I have my Antonov 124 and the UAE government B777 parking at the new terminal 2 instead of the Whiskey-Stands where they get parked on the real airport. 3.: Just a minor detail: The ground radar on top of the ATC tower is not correctly connected to it's supporting structure, looks odd when rotating. 4.: The wind socks at LSZH are bright orange in colour, not red and white stripes. 5.: The taxiway signs should be done in better quality. The ones we see at present look like default ones generated by the AFCAD. They do not match the ones on the real airport and look very cheap compared to the rest of the airport. The real taxiway signs are of a darker yellow and darker red colour, and they are NOT black on the backside but grey. 6.: I've spotted some floating obstacle beacons, two in front of Hangar 2 and 1 in front of the prison. That's all for now. I hope those issues will be addressed in an update soon. Once again I want to point out I really like the overall quality of the scenery, I just want to help you make it even better, so that people will not go and buy that warmed up 2nd gen. scenery coming from FSDT soon... The single runway issue is really critical. I've ran the simulation during the time I wrote this post. The queue didn't get shorter at all, traffic has no chance for departure, so if the user wants to depart from LSZH while adhering to ATC, he will be stuck on ground taxiing for at least half an hour, no fun! Best regards, Markus
