CYXX (2012)

Status and Known Issues

Current Release: 2.08

Issues/Problems in Current Release: - No Issues reported.

Applies to Issue Workaround/Update
FS9 only CYXX (2012) Version 2.08 downloads prior to January 24, 2018 were missing a texture for FS9, resulting in a large grey area southwest of the passenger terminal. Download and install Patch 2.
P3Dv3/4 Use of custom lighting causes Simconnect to "missbehave" when the first lights come on (at dusk or under pilot control) resulting in a crash of the user aircraft. Download and install Patch 1.


Issues/Problems in Earlier Versions of Release 2.xx (all fixed in Version 2.07)

Applies to Issue Workaround/Update
FSX and P3D Version 2.04 includes an apron lighting standard without a "NoCrash" attribute. This may result in a crash when taxiing near the western end of the main terminal. Install CYXX 2.04 Patch 1 or run with crashes disabled
FSX and P3D with PNW Several issues with PNW compatibility due to the elevation of the PNW mesh Install latest release
All versions CYXX Version 2.02 contains two sets of AI aircraft folders, one labelled "xxxxx", the other "CYXX_AI_xxxxx". Both sets contain the same aircraft, resulting in duplicate aircraft titles. Delete aircraft folders named "xxxxx" when there is a folder named "CYXX_AI_xxxxx".


Please be aware:

Applies to Issue Workaround
FS9 with Van+ A default building from Van+ is present behind the terminal Delete "buildings_CYXX.blg" from your Van+ Scenery\scenery folder
FS9 Due to the proximity of CYXX to the US border, on systems that have Ultimate Terrain (USA) enabled but not Ultimate Terrain (Canada/Alaska), FS9 may CTD when simulator time lies between the start of dusk and the end of dawn. Configure CYXX for UT compatibility


CYXX (2012) is "freeware". As such, support is limited. However, I will respond to your queries/problem reports - at least with an acknowledgement - and make a reasonable attempt to resolve any problems reported. Please do not report problems/issues in other than the latest release.

Should you wish to report a problem or other issue in CYXX (2012), please use THIS LINK. But, before doing so, please confirm that CYXX (2012) really is at fault by selectively enabling/disabling other add-ons in your Scenery Library that may interact with CYXX (2012) to see if the symptoms change. And, remember, a picture is often worth 1000 words. So, don't be shy about attaching one or more screenshots.
