Update casued black screen.
« on: September 16, 2020, 08:49:07 am »

Hello all

I haven't opened Outerra in a while and there was a 1.03GB update today.  When I launched the app, the world is black.  I can barely see the horizon and I have the start field , but Mother Earth is a black, formless void. 

Any ideas?

I9-9900K
RTX 2080Ti
ASUS TUF Mobo
32GB DDR4 RAM
Raid 5 1TB SSD's

Thanks!

I had something similar. I deleted World.cgf and Eng.cfg files from my data files/outerra  folder    and worked perfect again.

Can someone who has the same problem save their old world.cfg and send it to us?

That world.cfg didn't do anything except moving the time. I hope the problem isn't that there's a deep moonless night :)

Maybe the eng.cfg?

Lets see. I send two. For some reason, i have two of each (deleted) with 6 minutes diference in the time i installed the update. So also send the other world with the two Eng.cfg

The world comes up with both of the config sets, but it's interesting - it appears somewhat gradually - I've never seen that :)
Will investigate.
