Unable to load devmode Project without Sim Freeze

Hi Team,
I Updated our sim for the World update earlier today and since doing so we do not seem to be able to open our dev project anymore.

When I open and click Load In Editor on the BGL the sim instantly freezes, I have reinstalled the sim and loaded up with an empty community folder issue is still present.

I can build the scenery using the external tool and load in / fly around but am still unable to edit the project.

I have attached our SDK Files in below ( Private Reply )
Would appreciate some insight on this as soon as possible so we can continue development.

Hello @ImpulseSimulations


I'll have a look and see if I can repro the freeze.
In the meantime, can you force a full dump generation when your game is frozen and send it to us? You can do this by opening the Windows Task Manager, right clicking the process and select "Create dump file"

Hi Sylvain,

Whilst I was awaiting your response I manually deleted all sim files instead of steams uninstaller and reinstalled again.

I looks no now be loading, however, when loaded I am having massive holes / terrain anomalies appear. hopefully you can see this. If I get the freeze again I will create the dump file.

Hello @ImpulseSimulations

The holes in the terrain is a common problem we have when doing terraforming on top of TINs. We have no solution for this at the moment.
The only workaround is to use a polygon and exclude TIN in the area.

Sylvain

Hello @ImpulseSimulations


Unfortunately, no. We are not able to reproduce the freeze here.
You said the freeze occurs on loading the project in the scenery editor but your dump shows you were rather building the package. So does it happen on building or loading ? or both ?

The dump shows the program was in a DX11 driver function.
Can you try to update your driver ?
Can you try to switch to DX12 ?

Sylvain

@ImpulseSimulations Before you reinstall your driver or try DX12, try to clear the cache in

C:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Local\NVIDIA

The Nvidia driver creates a shader cache and it already caused similar issues so that seems to be a good lead.
Let us know if that solves your issue.

Hi @FlyingRaccoon,

For me the issue occurs on both.
If I load the project and click load BGL we face the same freeze.

as for my drivers they're updated regularly so I am unsure on this one.
Also my performance with the sim on DX12 is almost unusable.

Ok, so clearing the Nvidia shader cache didn't solve the issue either?
