As with most large modpacks for Civ4, there is a possibility of receiving a "Memory Allocation Failure" or MAF on Large & Huge maps, especially when playing on Terra or similar maps with little or no water.
This is, and has been, an ongoing problem with Civ4. It most often happens with large modpacks when saving the game but some people have had it happen with unmodded, plain Civ4. More info can be found on this by searching for "Memory Allocation Failure" in the Civ4-Tech Support forum. A few of these threads are listed below as well as one claiming a fix.

ABOUT THIS MODPACK
My goal with the Basic version of my modpack is to provide a free expansion pack with more Civs, Leaders, Ethnic Units, City Art Styles and Interface changes without changing the core gameplay (except for the new Civs). The Basic version is for those players who just want the new civs and leaders but not all the extras from v2.10 of my modpack.
This is not necessarily an exact recreation of recorded history right down to the last painstaking detail, as evidenced by some of the civs and leaders (ie: Conan, Odin, Vlad, etc). I have however tried my best to portray each of the new real world civs and leaders as accurately as possible but I am limited by the 3D models available and my lack of 3D modeling ability. Most of the reskinned leaderheads have swapped animations in an effort to set them apart from the retail leaders.
And last but not least... please don't ever forget that this is a game, have some fun!
Extract this file to your Beyond the Sword "Mods" folder within the Beyond the Sword game directory. For example, C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\MODS. It should create a folder called "Amra Basic" that will include all of the modpack files. In game, click on "Advanced" and then "Load a Mod" to play.
If you want this mod to load automatically every time you play Civ4 Beyond the Sword then edit the "CivilizationIV.ini" file in your "\My Documents\My Games\Beyond the Sword" directory. Search for "Mod = 0" and change it to "Mod = Mods\Amra Basic".

Previous versions of this modpack (for Vanilla and Warlords) are no longer supported. I'm really sorry but I just don't have the time anymore. I advise you to buy the BtS Expansion pack if you haven't already, it really adds a lot to Civ4 and is well worth the money.
