Ground Services disappear with Jan 6, 2022 update

It seems that addon airports that have their own Airport Services and Living World CFG files now disables the default ground services at all default airports in MSFS on a worldwide scale. If I remove the addon airport with it's own Airport Services and Living World CFG files from the community folder, then the ground services at all the default airports all return to normal. This only affects addon airports with has their own Airport Services and Living World CFG files defined. If your airport does not have these, then the default ground services work.

This only started to happen with the last update. Before that everything worked. The Airport Services and Living World CFG files only affected the airport it was designed for and not all the airports worldwide!

No pun intended guys, but to bring out fixes for airports that was broken due to updates is getting very annoying. Every update that comes out have some issue attached to it and here we have it again. I have the utmost respect for the work you do, please do not take this the wrong way, but it has been more than a year now. Can we PLEASE get the base package fixed? It is a nightmare for us developers working like this, patching our work month after month and then undoing those patches with other patches. We need some stability, PLEASE!

Hello @Space.Baron ,


We just finished some testing on our side and didn't see any issue

Are you the creator of the addon(s) you're having the problem with? If yes, could you send us your AirportService / LivingWorld configuration files please ?

Also, there are not suposed to be .cfg files for AirportServices/LivingWorld but .spb when the package is build and xml otherwise.

As stated in the documentation about the LivingWorld, "This file defines the models to use for various parts of living world". So the living world affect only one or several regions of the world and not a particular Airport.

Best Regards,

Boris

I checked with our own Louisville KSDF, which comes with a custom by-airport Ground service file (but not a Living World file, which are only by-region), and I can see both the customizations at KSDF, and standard services everywhere else.
