Add-On Plane Causing Crash - HELP!
SkylineGTRFreak released his latest Blue Angels F/A-18C Hornet which is awesome. Tried adding it to my /planes/ add-on pack and the game crashes on load.
I have many add-on planes from the same modder as well as other ones and everything works fine - adding this plane alone causes it to crash.
dlc.rpffile so if anyone can take a look and let me know why it's crashing, I'd appreciate it - https://drive.google.com/file/d/15TmBm8PCBBVsY9ylQGqbvA0bym0kF2T_/view?usp=sharing
I removed this plane and everything works perfectly fine so it's definitely something in this mod that's causing it.
Please help! Thanks in advance.
BUMP - anyone?
Same for me, since a few days, I am limited to 5 addons maximum. The 6th crashes my game. I don't understand why.
For example, if I want a new mod (car) I have to replace it with an old one.
Same problem with Gameconfig Limitless Vehicles V27, Heapadjuster, Packfile-limit-adjuster installed...

Does the default 'demohornet' add-on crash your game?
I tested the default F/A-18C Hornet Blue Angels US Navy Display Team 2.0 download & it works no problem for me (no crash at least, but there's no afterburner vfx (one other person in the mod comments has the same issue. Been a while since I installed a new jet, but all my other ones have afterburners working no probs)):
@a63nt-5m1th Default add-on works fine so it's definitely something in that pack. I didn't change anything in the pack - the modkit has the name 'fa18c' when the actual modkit name is 'hornet_mods.rpf.' I tried keeping it at fa18c but that didn't work either.
The 'dlc.rpf' you linked to works perfectly fine for me, but I suspect that's because it doesn't even contain the Blue Angels F/A-18C Hornet?!
@a63nt-5m1th haha you're right! Brain-fart moment right there. Here's the updated one - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HVtxzMmRDZxsHbUECvbuX3iobj6WuH5P/view?usp=sharing
Please let me know. Thanks.
Remove these lines from your planes 'content.xml'
<Item> <filename>dlc_planes:/data/ai/demohornet_vehiclelayouts.meta</filename> <fileType>VEHICLE_LAYOUTS_FILE</fileType> <overlay value="false"/> <disabled value="true"/> <persistent value="false"/> </Item>
& delete the 'demohornet_vehiclelayouts.meta' file from 'data/ai' as well obvs.
Deleting the 'demohornet_vehiclelayouts.meta' isn't vital, but it's unused, so no point keeping it. Basically, although it existed (as 'vehiclelayouts.meta') in the original F/A-18C Hornet Blue Angels dlc it was commented out in that 'content.xml' & not used/loaded as the 'demohornet' uses 'LAYOUT_PLANE_MAMMATUS'.
Presumably it was conflicting with something else, or the game just didn't know what to do with it etc.
@a63nt-5m1th man you are amazing! That was it - removed the
demohornet_vehiclelayouts.metafile from the content.xml file and deleted the file from the dlc.rpf and BAM, it works!
On that note, I'm wondering if my issue with the
polcars1add-on pack (the other thread I made) where it works fine on the Win 10 rig with NVE but not on the Win 11 rig with QuantV are the various vehiclelayouts.meta files?
These are the vehiclelayouts.meta files I have in that RPF:
vehiclelayouts.meta vehiclelayouts_bcsod.meta vehiclelayouts_bcsor.meta vehiclelayouts_buffalo.meta vehiclelayouts_guncava.meta vehiclelayouts_jmbearcat.meta vehiclelayouts_jmfibpolice.meta vehiclelayouts_lcpdhwy.meta vehiclelayouts_lssd_ext_pack.meta vehiclelayouts_msquaddie.meta vehiclelayouts_pbpdc.meta vehiclelayouts_pbpdc2.meta vehiclelayouts_pbsor.meta vehiclelayouts_polpatriot.meta vehiclelayouts_rebla.meta vehiclelayouts_rpd.meta vehiclelayouts_trualamo.meta vehiclelayouts_trubuffalo.meta vehiclelayouts_usss.meta vehiclelayouts_viptransporter2.meta vehiclelayouts_xls.meta
Should I just delete all of them or...? I can respond in that thread again but wanted to ask since you helped me fix this issue with the hornet plane.
EDIT: Just tried commenting out all the
vehiclelayouts.metafiles and it still crashes.
