    I have an issue with my map in the newest update that I can't really seem to troubleshoot. It's crashing the game every time it gets done loading and starts to spawn the player in. Any suggestions on where to start looking for the issue? I've tried it unpacked and when it loads in, the rocks have dark blocks around them at a distance. It will eventually crash though. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Alright I'll get that to you ASAP. Did you happen to see if the rocks were wonky on your end or was it all good?

    My support ID is 27546. Thanks in advance for your help. After a ton of different attempts\tests it is still crashing either while spawning or immediately after. :(

    Your crash logs are missing.
    You'd need to get them manually:
    - Go to Documents/BeamNG.Drive/cache.xxxx and you should see a 'crashReports' folder. ZIP it and upload it here*
    (xxxx stands for game version, pick the latest)

    *If the 'crashReports' folder is empty, or has just 1-2 files, you may need to first replicate the crash.
    If the game crashes and you see a 'Error Report' window, just close it. Do not send the crash reports with it.

    Here it is. I made sure to duplicate the crash right before I packed these in a .zip.

    It say it failed to access the file.
    It's possible your copy of that map is corrupt?
    Maybe try to remove and re-download it?

    Have you seen if any other users are having the same problem too?

    Yeah, other users are having the issue. Someone mentioned it in the map thread and when I tested I got the same crash. I'm pretty certain I've tried redownloading it but I can't remember for sure. I'll have to try again and see if it helps. I think the other user had tried redownloading as well with no luck. :(

    Damn dawg, that stinks. At least we're not alone in our map issues. xD The game update was really the only thing that had changed for me. I deleted my copy in the mods folder and replaced it with one freshly downloaded and still nada. Not sure what it could be. :(

    Does yours fail to load at all or load in for just a minute and crash? Mine crashes instantly if zipped but will stay open for a few minutes if unpacked.

    It crashes at the end of loading the map, under the text spawning player...

    It is the Crash Hard map.
    So this is what happens:
    As it is now it works fine, but if I after the newest update, want to fix stuff like make the roads smoother, fix some decals that is flickering, move models around or make the sky a nicer color, and I save the map, then quit the game to decktop, when I then reload the game and this map it will crash to decktop when its almost done loading in the map.
    And I know it is the new map file format thats beeing used in the new update that is conflicting with the old map format files, for if i delete all the files it just saved in the my documents folder, the map works fine again.
    So it looks like any map made or started on before the new update, can not be modified and saved anymore.

    I have sendt support and the devs my files the is doing this, and they said they'd look into it, that was weeks ago, I have sendt them 2-3 support tickets after that, and not a peep from any of them. So i'm a BIT frustrated.

    I understand the frustration. They take a month for support but they review mods all week (jk lol xD)

    After seeing your symptoms and checking my map again, I have to say that it really seems like the repository system nerfed our maps. It's the only thing that was added recently which would do this, and my map's folder structure was repacked and changed to reflect it. So yeah, it's likely one of the new updates messed our maps up. That being said, I'd LOVE some tips from the devs on what I can do to unscrew it.

    (I might be talking out my ass though and it's something else xD)

    I don`t think it have anything to do with the repository system, I think it is the new file system for maps that is doing this. (but maybe your map have something to do with the repository system, if you have not done any changes to it after the new update)

    I think the file system for maps changed due to the repository.

    I can still open your map, I would suggest delete (or put it on your desktop or something) the file in your documents/beamng/levels/
    Then download the map from this site and put it in the mods folder. If you have made changes, you'll lose them, sadly.
    I can open it when its in the mods folder.

    I don't think this will help you, but its a suggestion. :) maybe you did this already.

    Yeah, unfortunately I've tried everything short of reinstalling the game. Might do that tonight, though. I haven't heard anything from the mods for a long time so hopefully they haven't forgotten about me and my little ol' map :(
