Moved to support.

Do you have scenery_hawaii.lst in your scenery folder? If you do, make sure it is named "Hawaii[PMNV]".
I make this website.

Doublecheck that it is in fact installed, and check the name against the server error (when it says "Field "Name" not installed"). If it is installed, the .lst may have it named wrong (unlikely, but possible).

Did you install it so it would replace the stock Hawaii map? Neil is running PMNV as an addon map, not as a replacement map I believe.

I believe the lst. should be called scenery_hawaii.lst. Eric was just making sure that the actual map was named Hawaii[PMNV]. See if the map even works offline. Besides that, I have no idea.

I just screwed it up then :lol:
I originally installed PMNV Hawaii over the original. I guessed earlier this morning that it could be the problem.
so how do i go about making it so PMNV hawaii shows up as a singular map AND replace the original Hawaii?

Well I was answering the part where you asked if you could replace the original, which you can't, but you can make regular hawaii better with the 171st ground pack... now to the server problem. Why don't you just try re-installing the pmnv pack again... you may have forgotten to install a component to it
