    correct, look for it in CIV4CityLSystem.xml

    I'm also using the 1.09 version and because it's not in Globaltypes.xml it triggers the assert.

    Ok, now I am confused :)

    In my copy of 1.09 (the download is not up, so I could not verify with the current one), I do not have ARTSTYLE_MESO_AMERICA in GlobalTypes.xml, I do have it in CIV4CityLSystem.xml however.

    So where is it corrected in the latest version (which is 1.09) ?

    I'm using 1.09 EDC (Ethnically Diverse Citystyles) for CIV Gold. The latest version is the new Ethnic Artstyles which contains more than just the EDC part. In that "new" version the bug is not there anymore. (Edit: incorrect, it's there also)

    I just removed the entries of ARTSTYLE_MESO_AMERICA in my 1.09 version of CIV4CityLSystem.xml, because I wasn't using this artstyle anyway (and it seems to be a copy of the Native American artstyle).

    A couple of posts back Geomodder mentioned this link: http://hosted.filefront.com/GeoModder

    Thanks for finding this. It looks like I mistyped "SOUTH" with "MESO" for those 4 references. ;)

    I will correct (for the public at large) it in my next upload.
    The only thing you would notice ingame is that ancient Inca, Aztec and Maya never have 3x1 sized city buildings.

    Ok, thanks for the feedback. Instead of removing them I have changed MESO to SOUTH in my version. I was under the wrong assumption they were not being used.

    Edit: I see now that the error was repeated in Ethnic Artstyles...

    Yes, of course. EA is based on EDC. ;)

    Ok, their seem to be 2 problems in Ethnic Artstyles:

    - ARTSTYLE_WEST_EUROPEAN in CIV4PlotLSystem.xml
    - ARTSTYLE_MESO_AMERICA in CIV4CityLSystem.xml

    Should ARTSTYLE_WEST_EUROPEAN just be changed to ARTSTYLE_EUROPEAN?

    Just checked the file. "Artstyle_West_European" can simply be deleted since in every entry which has this tag "Artstyle_European" is already there.

    Thanks again for reporting.

    Btw, how did you find these? XML error check or something?

    I stumbled across them when using the files with WoC, you get an error message for each of the two styles ;)

    I used a BTS 3.13 debug DLL with Asserts on, compiled for me by mrgenie (the Vi from ViSa), the lead programmer of the WoC project.

    Well, if you spot more, just let me know. It's always nice to have such loyal debuggers. :mischief:
