Hello. Thanks for the feedback. I think you might be the first one asking lol.
I'm going to need information about all the steps you take before try the mod. Advanced lighting is not an issue for the maps, so that can't be the problem, unless you're playing with the Remastered MUA from 2016. Normally the simulator crash when there's something missing.
Questions: -Did you start a new game before try it?
-Is the Hand Ninja installed in your npcstat file?
It's a cool mission, nice change of pace. I especially like throwing cars at bad guys. Also, I can go backward at the beginning of the map and then fly high above the city... I assume that's a bug too, but it's one I have no intention of fixing =D
My MUA is the OG, circa 2006 if I recall correctly.
I copied the all the files over, I added the hand ninja to the npcstat and recompiled. I updated the "zoneinfo" and "simulator" files per your instructions in the download. If I hadn't done those things, or if anything else was missing, I'd expect the mission to have the same problems regardless of the lighting/shadow settings. The map looks right and the ninjas are all there, like in your video.
When I first encountered the problem, it was on a saved game, but then I did try a new game and got the same results.
