Hi

CE keep crashing when I try to generate a big chunk of models.

I tried allocating 16 of my 28 GB of RAM to CE in the CityEngine.ini (Xmx16G) to make sure I don't run out of JAVA memory, but it still crashes.

Here below I added my hs_err file.

Can someone help me figure out how and if these crashes can be solved?

Thanks !

In some old versions of CE I had specific models muck up the whole generation because of texture issues. Try generating sections to see if a single model is the cause. Select half the models, generate, select the other half generate. If either makes CE crash, divide that half again and proceed.

Hi.

I have the exact same problem!

#  EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005)

I can select huge portions of my city and generate the models ok, but it does crashes after 2 seconds on others.

If I generate the models one at a time it works, if I select the SAME models all together it crashes

Any suggestion on how to solve this texture issue?

Many Thanks

A

Hi Carla and Abele,

can you please confirm, this happens with CityEngine 2018.0?
It includes a bugfix, that deals with a crash that matches your description.

Thank you

No apparently not. I'd like to analyze your scene and cga rules. I've sent you a private message.

Thomas Fuchs, I solved the problem. Apparently it was not texture related but Graph Related!

There was a portion of the street network that was causing the crashes during model generation. I deleted those segments and remade it and now it all works fine
