IC can take a very long time the first time.

It caused by a couple of custom decals that need to be compiled.

Give it a bit longer and it should load ok.

Solved. At least for me...

I went back today to Editor-->Manage-->Subscribed Missions.. then clicked the "search glass icon" next to Insurgent Camp to 'Explore mission in Single Player mode'... (so include a hard reboot to this). Map loaded okay in 13 seconds.

Went back to the browser and joined the US and EU servers for Insurgent Camp, and both loaded in 13 seconds.

I have no idea why I was timing out at 8 minutes the other day when I first subscribed and tried to load the map, considering that other larger User maps compiled promptly the first time, and I never had this problem with any map before.

Hope this is just a hiccup and happy it resolved itself.

io_i_oi - out.

I am having a similar error to everyone else in this thread, but mine concerns a sound package. I was getting an error that said: "Error downloading whatever.sounds package". Has anyone experienced this? When loading a map on a server for the first time, will everyone crash if you load faster than the server? I keep re-starting the server when I crash. Do I need to leave it sit on a map for a while before attempting to reconnect?

*I did manage to join the server on one map, but friends still got same error as I was getting previously. I am not sure what I did to make it work. There is another map that uses the exact same sound package and I still get the error for that map???

Is it a custom sound package referenced in the map? It's possible that the sound package wasn't included in the build, therefor the game keeps looking for it...?

Sounds like a map error.

When you publish and cook the map it gets bundled together correct? I did cook my maps. Not sure what is wrong. I didn't try to re-cook them. I am waiting to see if anyone else has had this problem. I don't think that is the case because I was able to get one of the maps to work by some unknown means.

I think you can have external packages (not included in the map) that would cause this, but I'm not an expert by any means. Publishing right now doesn't allow an asset outside of the .umap file.

Paging Doctor Wolvy......paging Doctor Wolvy.....!!

Yes you can have external packages....However, at the moment there is no way to upload or download from steam. Only map files are allowed at the moment. You can just move all custom content into you map file and it will work.

Like keebler said, right now when you're cooking the map with external package, it cooks all the files, but only .umap file is uploaded to steam.


I have a tutorial somewhere in these forums that shows you how to import files into you map.
