I noticed that when adding assets from Chaos Cosmos the opacity maps are missing for the leaves of trees.
Trying to render trees from Chaos Cosmos results in trees without leaves.
I tried to reconnect opacity maps but they are not downloaded with the assets by Chaos Cosmos.

OSX
C4D 24.1 CR-RC2

Seems to work fine for me (see attached). Have you simply tried re-downloading the asset?

thanks, will try again. Really weird that only the opacity maps are skipped.

Problem persists. I don't get the opacity maps downloaded with Chaos Cosmos. This must be a bug in Chaos Cosmos.

Also happens with other assets from Chaos Cosmos. Opacity maps are skipped. No maps are in place. All the other mappings are alright.

Just checked a few more assets from Chaos Cosmos.
It's just a big mess all over. Opacity maps missing or in dfiferent places. Chaos needs to update the libraries before any useful vegetation is provided. Maybe just a Mac issue.

Attachment:
Chaos Cosmos tree:
Opacity map in the IOR slot at a value of 3 ? After checking a few more vegetation assets did not see any correct one. Either maps are missing or materials with weird settings.

See that in today's release 11 this problem has been solved. Thanks.

I still see some materials of Maxtree's vegetation that need attention especially in the IOR settings. Some have opacity maps or values of 1 or 1.2
