    Hi,

    I previously edited several mapr for civ 4 but this time I tried to create a completely new map. I used mapview and notepad for that.

    However, whenever I load my map, the game crashes. I spent days looking for where the problem is. I even removed almost everything from the map, so now it is only ocena/coast and grassland (no hills, rivers, mountains etc...) and two players (england and spain) to find the potential problem by elimination...

    However, I still wasnt able to find the problem.

    Please, can someone more skilled/experience in civ4 mapmaking have a look at the map and try to find the problem?

    You can download the map from: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vu18juk7q57nc9c/Western Europe 2.CivBeyondSwordWBSave
    or

    The python error messages hint that something must be spellt incorrectly, but it crashes too fast, so I can't see at which line in the WB it is :/.

    Remind me later to take a look at that again.

    Yes, whenever you make a map in Mapview you always need to add all that stuff in.
