Black textures near the user plane, at the airport loading. Sim version 1.18.9.0

I have black textures when loading a scenery compiled with the latest version of the Sim, the black textures are around the user's plane, the problem is present in an area where the simulator's primary aerial default images are not present, and I think this triggers the problem, the same project compiled with the retail version of the simulator does not have the problem. The black textures go away simply by going outside the plane, leaving the plane and returning to the plane.

I add a detail that could make the problem understand, the black textures occur if the custom airport has a part of the runway (or all) where in the standard scenery there was water. So at the moment if you lengthen runways to reflect the changes in the real counterpart, you create these black rectangles.

Hello,

I just reproduced the issue using your package so I'll file a bug and a dev will have a look at this.

Hello Sylvain, do you have any news from the developers? i just installed patch 1.19.9.0 but the problem persists and on zendesk my ticket was closed as solved.


Thanks.

Hello Alessandro.


I think your Zendesk ticket was closed because it is being processed here.
The developers have not yet started investigating as we're focusing on SU6 and other issues that were reported prior to yours.
I know this is frustrating but we don't have unlimited resources. Be sure I'll let you know as soon as I know more about this bug.

Regards,
Sylvain

Hi @FlyingRaccoon,
I have managed to find the cause of the black areas on our scenery. It appears that if the user is inside of a object that has Environment Exclusion the black holes appear.

I tested this further by placing our Terminal on the opposite side of where users reported the issue, When inside the terminal which is covered with the exclusion you can see the hole using the dev cam. The moment your outside of this it's back to normal.

Checked the same scenario with aircraft. all aircraft do it too. Which led me to believe that the environment excluder material is the cause since the last update. Could we get a comment on if this was adjusted?

Hi.


Thanks for the feedback.
No update from the devs yet.
I'd be surprised if this is related to EnvironmentOccluder material as I have the issue in external view when you're outside of it and the missing tiles are behind the aircraft.
But if there's any relation between the two, devs will find out.

Regards,
Sylvain

Sorry but in my case I have only a landing strip modified in length, this is enough to create the problem. I think it is due to the modification of airports that are sea level.
