SkyMaxx corrupting Moon.png

Recommended Posts

Dear Skymaxx team

i am having an occurence occasionally where it seems skymaxx is corrupting my moon.png texture. I try replacing the file with a known working version, yet when xplane is started, this file is then corrupted during the boot process and xplane crashes. I have isolated this to skymaxx, as re-installing the add-on fixes the problem for a while. Are you able to assist? My solution at the moment will be to remove skymaxx from my system, but i'm not keen to do this.

 

regards

Chris

My guess would be it's one of 3 things:

  • Your default moon.dds file somehow became corrupt, perhaps due to a crash at just the wrong time. Try running the X-Plane installer and allow it to overwrite this file with a clean version, then delete our potentially bad copy of the file by deleting the contents of Resources/plugins/SilverLining/skyColors/Default Sky Colors
  • There is some sort of file permission issue on your resources/bitmaps/world folder and/or Resources/plugins/SilverLining/skyColors folder.
  • Some other plugin is also trying to control this texture. I noticed an error in your log about an AOS Seasons extension that failed to install. I don't know what that is, but if it affects the sky at all it may be in conflict with SMP.

Thanks for the reply Frank!

The first time i had this problem i re-installed x-plane to reset the textures back to default, however i watched the file during the boot of xplane and could actually see the file size change as it corrupted during the boot process. 

Next time i come across this i will try your solution to deleting the default sky colours and see how it goes.

 

AOS seasons extensions i have no idea what that is, i just found it in the log as you mentioned... it must have been installed along with some other add-on without my knowing, i will investigate further as to what this could be.

 

thank you again for your time

 

Chris

It's expected behavior for the file size of moon.dds to change while booting. SkyMaxx Pro replaces it with its own moon texture at startup, then restores the original when you exit X-Plane.
