that happens when you don't have the ground files that the track is calling for. Usually the fix is to ask on that particular topic, what tracks are necessary. and hopefully if someone responds you can download the other tracks you need to make that one work.

Hope that makes sense. Basically you need parts from other tracks you don't have yet.

Id recommend downloading dj's object packs the should be on the top of general discussion, most tracks use his objects.

They aren't in GD, I just looked, but just search for his object pack on the forums, you should find them. https://gyazo.com/b8ef6e9852b41676981fa1e45d19f040 they should be named something like this.

If youba accidentally put them in a subfolder that can happen, either if you create an extra folder when you extract it or if you by mistake put it in a subfolder.

So do not put all tracks in a folder called like "DLC" or so, just throw all folders in your install folder.

Thanks guys. I got the object packs and tried a track and still the same. Maybe I'll delete and try to reinstall them. They look like they are all in the mx sim folder with my other tracks. So I don't know. Really appreciate the help tho

Ok nice. Just make sure it's not the case like:
MxSim Folder/National Rd1/nationalrd1.saf
or
MxSim Folder/National Rd1/National Rd1 (like your folder is duplicated or a saf is in a folder).

Ok I'll check. So I don't want any .saf in their own folder? I am on a Mac to but that shouldn't make any difference right? Again I really appreciate the help storken.

Nope, same for Mac. So yeah, you just want the saf files directly in your mxsim folder.

The checkersville for some reason is the only one that I can't get to work. It's pissing me off. lol I gave up. I took all the tracks out of the folder but no dice.
