    Thanks! Downloading now. Does it contain those improved files for hunting bugs in multi? With keystrokes to produce logs?

    Yes to both. Just be sure to check that the log wasn't created already before trying Ctrl K, or you might overwrite useful information. Thanks again for your persistence in helping solve this OOS.

    Great news! The only changes from the 2nd beta are bug fixes, right? What are the plans for 1.24?
    EDIT: I've just seen that Barghash is a new leader for Swahili. Last minute addition? What's his capital? Stone Town?

    Other than Barghash, lots of bug fixes and balancing.

    Main plan for 1.24 is to have it released before the end of the year! Last few releases have all been huge and taken 6 months or more. I want to get that under control and have 3 slightly smaller releases per year.

    As for content, I want to explore what I can do with climate and maybe have another go at implementing organised crime. A review of city and building art is long overdue so I might tackle that first. Maybe another civ, if time, resources, and inspiration allow.

    Last minute addition, yes. Liked the art too much to leave till later. His capital is Zanzibar. For some civs I prefer to use island names for cities rather than names of towns.

    It looks like all these changes weren't included:
    Abu'l Mawahib got somehow moved. He should be 1W.
    What concerns Barghash... I think it would be best to create a one-tile island (Zanzibar) and place him there.

    Its same, I have chosen tenets to boost hammers in temple and other to produce temple in city after missionary spreads faith, it works and temple is built, few turn after that we have OOS. Exactly same story like we had in beta. Good luck hunting this bug :)

    Hmm, thought I did make most of those adjustments. Guess not. Will take another look.

    Kilwa is an island, like Zanzibar, but smaller. Makes no sense to have him inland.

    I did that on the Africa map, where there was room. To add an island to any of the Earth Maps would require adjusting the coast as well or it will just look like a weird peninsula.

    Awesome, thanks for this. The problem seems to be in Sparta, where something has increased the city's food per turn by 2 but reduced production per turn by 1, and that change hasn't registered on the other computer. Can you post a saved game?

    If not, can you think of anything that happened that turn or the previous ones that could have this result? In particular, when did Sparta get its solitary specialist, and what was the last thing the city built?

    Turns out the difference in yield the logs were showing were simply because the settler was appearing as completed on one computer but not the other. A result of being out of sync, not the reason for going out of sync in the first place. The random number seeds are still different though but I don't know why. This is why not having that second MPLog.txt is frustrating.

    I borrowed another computer and have been testing your saved game repeatedly. No matter what I do, I cannot recreate the OOS error within 20 turns. This might be because you're playing with 'New Random Seed on Reload' set. With this setting, loading the game changes the outcome, meaning whatever caused the OOS is probably not getting triggered. Though it's strange that you got an OOS first go after reloading while I haven't been able to get any after over 20 reloads.

    I'm afraid I'm going to need a different set of logs and saved game from you, this time without 'New Random Seed on Reload' set. When the OOS occurs, first copy the logs to somewhere else so they don't get overridden, then exit and reload a few times, doing nothing different. See if it reoccurs consistently.

    Workaround for that one is detailed in the troubleshooting thread:

    I was just playing a game and noticed two changes, and weren't sure if they were bugs or that I don't understand the mechanics yet.
    Firstly, my capital has gained enough food to grow but is permanently stuck on the "0 turns until growth" bar, and no matter how many turns I go through it does not grow at all.
    Secondly, I seem to be gaining research in techs that I haven't personally researched. It seems that while I research a certain tech a small amount of research is also put into some others? This has come to the point where I can completely research something like copper working quite early on because somehow research points have already been put into that tech?
    Is this working as designed?
    Thanks

    Ah, looks like when I added Ctrl-K for OOS Logging, I broke Ctrl-C for escaping endless AI turns (and the Strategy Overlay keys). Whoops. That particular game seems incredibly stuck though, I can't force out of it at all.

    In 1.23 Avoid Growth gets switched on automatically if your city is about to become unhappy or unhealthy. You need to go to each city's screen and disable it in the control panel. A quick way to view which cities have it enables/disabled is the Automation column on the Economy tab of the Domestic Advisor (F1).

    I intended for this behaviour to be optional but never got it finished before I needed to release 1.23. It'll be fixed along with a number of other issues in 1.23.1, which I expect to release sometime in the next week or two.

    There's an effect called Tech Diffusion where the more civilizations that know a technology, the cheaper it becomes for those in contact with them that don't know it yet.

    Congrats on the release!
    One quick question: pollution in the capital city seems too much. Still in the ancient era, and got 7 pollution in a size 6 city. For a total of 15 unhealth (6 from population, 2 from buildings and extra 7 from pollution). Unhealth alone more or less breaks my dissent level, I'm facing an unavoidable civil war originating from my capital. Is pollution working as intended, and the reason it went up that far was a mistake in my play?
    Actually I'm not entirely sure how early-game pollution is generated in your cities. Didn't find anything regarding that in the civilopedia under health. Can someone point me to the right direction?

    "Ah, looks like when I added Ctrl-K for OOS Logging, I broke Ctrl-C for escaping endless AI turns..."

    Is this one of the things that will be fixed (or refixed) for 1.23.1? I find this an invaluable tool for the many games that become stuck on the endless AI loop, especially in later eras.

    I haven't updated the Health article in pedia yet, I need to. It is working as intended though. The chief source of unhealthiness in the early game is from polluting improvements: mines, workshops, villages/towns. Don't build too many of these until you've got the resources and health-providing buildings in place to support them. Leaving forests intact helps a bit too.

    Definitely.

    I just had a quick question about whether this type of bug has been reported/is common. It seems that since I downloaded the latest version my game will crash on the same turn. No matter how many times I reload, it crashes on the exact same turn and I can't move forward. Is there a quick fix for such or a problem, or is this a common problem? :confused:

    This is the first report I've received of a repetitive crash in 1.23. Please post the crash log and your saved game and I'll see if I can replicate and/or identify the problem.

    Sure, both the crash report and the save game should be attached in this post.

    Thanks for these. In order to continue your game, you'll first need to delete your Trebuchet in Gergovia. You're about to lose that city to a civil war and for some reason the game crashes when the Trebuchet there is converted to the rebel civilization. Still trying to figure out why so I can fix it for 1.23.1.

    Secondly, by unfortunate coincidence there is also an AI Endless Tun bug (a flaw in BTS itself) on the same turn. Normally I'd just get you to hit Ctrl-C (CMD-C on OS X) to escape from it, but I accidentally broke that keybinding in 1.23. So you'll need to enter worldbuilder and delete the Anasazi Pirate at 30, 39.
