    question-"generation of quick combat mission failed!" error

    CD Airfield Buildings Library 4.0

    I am installing the files, if I don't put in all the files in the OBJECTS_DP folder, it works.

    I will get this error "generation of quick combat mission failed!" when I put in all the dp files.
    I am now putting in a few at a time, it started to get this error when I put in these two files:

    09/16/2019 04:29 PM 2,877 CD_Hangar_B1.dp
    09/16/2019 04:29 PM 2,877 CD_Hangar_B1_Green.dp

    They look OK to me.

    I hope that someone know what I did wrong.

    If you put them all in you get the "generation....failed" message, right?

    What happens if you put those two back and then remove a handful of other random dps?

    Try moving a handful of dps to a on-hold folder- start with a few that don't have any associated cdp files.

    Does the "generation....failed" message go away?

    The most likely thing is that you have just reached your CFS2 "stuff" limit.

    Thanks MaskRider,

    I deleted a bunch of dp files that starts with ~**** and some I think are useless dp files. I got down to 1603 dp files and I can use all the dp files from the CD Airfield Buildings Library 4.0 without any problems.

    I am not too sure whether there is limit to the number of dp files.

    Hiya Andrew,

    I don't think there is any hard and fast limit. But taken all together in conjunction with many other things suchs as AC, dps, ships, gauges(?), etc., etc., there does seem to be some limit beyond which CFS2 just says: "Enough stuff!".

    Not only the number of these entries but the cumulative file size of everything plays a role too.

    Sometimes you just need to play around with it.

    Glad you got it "fixed".

    Cheers,
    MR

    PS: Just BTW, I am constantly dancing around my CFS2 "Stuff Limit" and needing to adjust the amount of stuff I have loading in CFS2.

    My current numbers are:
    AC 99 (I like to maintain this number at the expense of everything else)
    GAU 3160
    DPs 1420 (plus another 410 "on-hold"- mostly weapons and scenery objects one would find in the ETO. 1420 seems to be my current limit given everything else getting loaded up.)
    SHIPS 144 (the way things are right now I can put this up to 156 with no worries, I have recently culled through my ships folder so it isn't up to its normal level and probably won't go up again any time soon.)

    Cheers,
    MR
