    Hello! First I want to thank you for the effort you put into merging (?) these great mods. It seems such a lovely experience.

    I'm playing the mod with a fresh install since ~thursday and somehow the games freezes / hangs / crash (I don't know the correct term) during the passing of turns, around the turn 100. I've read the thread and thought the issue was the same as the fellow player. Tried change the map skin, gave admin rights, reduced texture and other graphics quality, playing windowed mode and such.

    What caught my attention in the log (attached below, together with the last two save games prior to crash) is the following:

    and then game suddenly freezes. Maybe it's trying to access a file and it is missing? My specs are:

    OS: Windows 7
    Processor: Intel i7-6700HQ
    Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 530
    Memory: 16GB

    Any another info I could provide I'm ready to do so. Thank you for the mod and for your support!

    Are you playing WITH or WITHOUT the MegaPack?

    Mega Pack and these other stuff, as I checked on the Launcher now. Should I try anything with it?

    No, they should be fine.

    EDIT: I asked because I thought you had a MegaPack error without the MegaPack. That would had been a clue to start for me but looks like it's something else.

    Just for the sake of care, is there a way to generate log of which mods are loaded during that turn? I saw some log of a fellow poster that had the loaded mods. I could check it there if it would help.

    More info about the bug, if it helps, I'm playing on a Custom Game with custom settings. I.e, Revolutions disabled. Could it be the source of conflict?

    EDIT: a way to generate the settings I'm playing would be helpful, too.

    I hope to come out with a new patch soon, so a little teaser:

    For City-state I'm setting a hard cap on number of cities.
    For Chiefdom it will be 1 unhappiness per city. Early expansion is difficult but possible.

    I have also implemented a very simple Gathering mechanics based on events. It is to be improved later.

    Great Hunter generation is also changed: hunting animals results in Great Hunter :gp: in nearest city.
     
    laniatus and black213 like this.

    Patch 1.0.2

    from DropBox
    from MediaFire

    Hunting and gathering

    This patch mostly focus about the early gameplay. It the Ancient era feel longer by adding more things to do, although the number of turns aren't increased greatly.

    Change log:

    =========


    General
    =======
    Civs now start with a free worker in the Ancient era
    Fixing some missing or incorrect texts
    Fixing bug when capturing Bees results in Cassowary instead of Captured Bees
    A new, simple event based mechanics for Gathering. It adds some micro-manegament for the early game.
    Rock-paper-scissor rule applied to earliest unit: Hunter beats animals; Warrior beats Hunter; Slinger beats Warrior.
    Role Playing Elements: Now many leaders have a flavour for autocratic, oligarchic or democratic civics. This is meant to give some diversity to the game.


    Hunting
    =======
    many animals are set to defend only (Stag, Bull, Stallion, etc.)
    herding animals has only 10% chance of placing resource and 90% chance of butchering it (as in friendly territory)

    getting Great Hunters is changed:
    killing animals generates Great Hunter points in nearest city, so it's getting harder and harder to gain new Great Hunters

    no tech requirements

    Is that with the new version? I haven't got into the Classical era yet (I have very little spare time).
    Can you post a savegame?

    I have this same problem, with game freezing after a while.

    But I'm not playing with separate installation like jopin, I've installed chronicals/music/megapack over AND, yet there are some problems with the luncher so I have to start game form BTS menu.

    I've tested few games and game freezes after 400-600 turns. Then I've took out megapack all modules out, restart the saves and when the game started it asks about recalculating smth cos dlc was missing (since no more Polish civ in basic version), I did agree, after some "no fatal load warning" pop-ups game changed my Polish civ into Arabian (sic!) and I've manage to play normally.

    I thought it was new civs foult, pity cos there are so few in AND (no Polish, why is that? wrrrr) and I've started new game without megapack but now I can see problem is not that (I've tested saves provided by jopin, it also freezes for me).

    I just love that mod, and how it shows green/red numbers in civs screen and how u constructed choices around oligarchy/democracy and so on.

    Apologies for my late response! Do you still need a save from a classical infinite loop turn?
    Classical infinite loop turn, haha. I'm not sober right now.
