Hello there, I have a few mods that, whenever i open the I3D and then click somewhere on the vehicle or in the empty space... just not in the panels, it crashes... But only have 4-5 doing this but why... its so fucked up.

I'd guess the mods are from earlier FS versions? In certain cases the GE might crash then.
You should get error messages in the GE log.

Nope... i think they are all quit new -
Also i see no erros in the console or log either.

And what about default game i3d's? Do they load properly?

It might be, in the mod i3d are some dirty tricks inbuilt. Some modders do such to prevent easy editing.

What you should try at first: navigate to GE user folder %LOCALAPPDATA%\GIANTS Editor ... and delete the "editor.xml" and content of "shader_cache". Due to a Windows or driver update these might have become invalid.

Yes only few mods downloaded who does this... also what i guesses, that the modder made it protected somehow

I am having an issue with GE 8.2.2 with open the mapDE.i3d fine just fine when the map file is unzipped but as soon as i zip the file to put it into the fs19 mods folder GE will no longer open the mapDE.i3d file from the zipped folder it just crashes instantly and when I check the log.txt i get an error for every single texture on the map but the map is not altered in any way and will load in game with no crash errors?

*sigh* Should be known meanwhile that for editing a mod/map the files must be unzipped.
