Chances to have database initiation errors


Jan 11, 2023
There are chances that the application crashes when I start a game. (Launching application works fine; it only crashes when I choose to play the game, either to continue, load, or create a new one)
I check the logs and find errors in Database.log when the crash happens. The log file is attached. It seems the GamePlay database isn't correctly initiated and errors occur when trying inserting data into tables.
I also find the files initiating the GamePlay database in $GAMEPATH/Assets/Base/Assets/Gameplay/Data, including SQL files that create the tables and XML files that insert/update. These files look fine to me, and there do have times the game didn't crash - makes me so confused.
Appreciations for any advice to figure/fix the error.🙏

My general advice is to first verify the integrity of your game files through Steam if you've not already done so.

If that doesn't work, next try deleting the Mods.sqlite file @ "...\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Mods.sqlite" and the three debug files in "...\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Cache".

If that still doesn't work, try uninstalling the game making sure to delete any leftover files/folders in "...\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization VI" and "...\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization VI", and then do a fresh install.

And, finally if none of that works you can submit a support ticket to 2K/FXS here. They'll likely ask you to submit information like the diagdx, GraphicsOptions, and logs that can be found by following the instructions here.
