Blue Planet randomly crashes out of memory
Hiya i seem to be running into some game breaking problems with Blue planet at the moment, I think its the blue planet as i cannot recreate the crashes in other mods. The game randomly crashes saying i don't have enough memory and to close down applications running in the background. When i check Task manager the only program taking up any amount of memory is Knossos itself, 1.5gig now i have 15 gig of memory, in fact these are my system specs.

Alienware Aurora R8
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-9400 CPU @ 2.90GHz (6 CPUs), ~2.9GHz
Memory: 16384MB RAM
DirectX 12
AMD Radeon (TM) RX 570X
Display Memory: 16274 MB

Now i was fredding a mission yesterday working perfectly fine. Today it crashes on the loading screen saying out of memory and the only change i have made to the mission is adding a briefing.  I got rid of the briefing screens and now it still crashes.

Now i have run the game in Debug but i cannot recreate the crash in debug. The game plays perfectly normal in debug so i am unsure on what to do. the version i am using is
FSO-20.1.0-20201115
blueplanetcomplete-1.1.1

I really need some help as Blue planet is becoming unplayable.

PS this all started to happen after the last media VP update, with the new demon and moloch models

if there is any consistancy with the Shivans, it's their lack of consistancy - -Norbert-

Have managed to kind of get it sorted with the help of the guys on the BP discord.

Re: Blue Planet randomly crashes out of memory
Not sure, it was something to do with the builds after the september release and looking at the Discord today E thinks is may have something to do with the AMD drivers since i have a radeon, but if thats the case i find it strange that the error only occurs in Blue planet. I couldn't recreate the problem in Solaris, Inferno, FSport and series resurrecta. So i am unsure what it is within Blue planet that my drivers don't like. I think they are still looking into to. All i know is i can't seem to use any build after FSO-20.1.0-20200916 for BP.
