    Please post any bugs you encounter with as much detail about how it happened and possibly even a savegame. I'll fix what I can when I can :)

    If you are experienceing issues with Memory Allocation Failures (MAFs), please attempt to follow the directions in this thread to optimize your computer to run Civ.

    For OOS related issues, please read this post: OOS Logger. Then include the OOS log file from each computer as an attachment so we can figure out what caused the issue. Also please enable logging in your .ini and utilize the Random Logger MP option to assist further in OOS tracking/locating.


    Changes slotted for next release

    Base Code Issues to figure out

    4. Events which create improvements can trigger on the city plot (ushram - Post 292)
    5. Still occasional Memory Allocation errors when loading savegames from within a game (normally after having played a while) -- Potentially a small memory leak in something underused (Raledon - Post 301)
    6. Barbarian World gameoption can spawn Barbarian cities too close to AI start locations, making them incapable of settling

    I doubt it's a bug but the barbarians are a bit off in my game. They never attacked my cities, just passed by the countryside...

    Jonas attacked me (Capria, wanted to try the Bannor module :D) but has stuck all his units in a corner of my capital BFC and isn't moving. He's on a marble tile... Weird, huh.

    Also, two AIs got killed early. I guess Gargoyles are responsible somehow because I've seen one wandering...

    I am almost certain that I have had cities razed by Barbarians in test games, but keep an eye out to make sure that they do attack eventurally. If it seems that they never are, save (so you can undo the bonehead test move) and move all your units out of a city, see if they take the undefended prize. If they don't, I accidentally undid a previous change to fix that behavior.

    I'll test. I know Jonas already tried to attack one of my cities, though. No idea why he's standing over there... Maybe because I have +106% defense and he hasn't any catapult? :mischief:

    In test games I've been playing, I've noticed that when I invade people, the AI has a habit of going around my army and striking at my relatively undefended cities while my heroes are away conquesting.

    Don't let your workers go unescorted for even a second!

    They still don't move out of their nice marble tundra plot :rolleyes:
    The barbarians are attacking though. It seems they aren't as crazy as before, attacking at stupid odds...

    Very odd on the invasion force denying you your marble. I would suspect that they are either desperate to get Marble for themselves, or fear letting you have access to any. Either of which is pretty dang stupid since Marble doesn't do THAT much for a person. It may be an interesting save to play with and see what is required to change the AI's mind, or precisely which unit has it so fixated.

    Here's the save, then.
    What's odder is that I do have a quarry on the tile and they didn't bother razing it...

    I just had 2frost goblins walking just out of my culture. I moved my defenders out and after 1 more step the direction they were headed they bee-lined for my empty capital and captured it.

    Edit: Load save and moved back in... they turned around and walked away instead of attacking... 2 warriors on a hill with a palisade, was a sure loss for them had they attacked.

    Is that one actually a bug or just a comment on the situation Opera is discussing? Might be best to move the discussion of what the AI is playing at in general to a new thread until there's a confirmed issue (does sound like something is up with Jonas though in Opera's post).

    It does become hard to find the genuine bugs amongst the "this might be a bug but I'm not sure" posts. I really don't mind how many threads are made to discuss potential bugs, so long as we can find the real ones in this thread...

    So, prolly not a bug either, but anyone else notice it takes like 15 min to load a game? (Didn't clock that. I'm just so impatient that after 5min, I said screw it.) How can I speed that up?

    I too noticed that the game was surprisingly slow to go past the Setup Map phase of game start.

    Which Mapscripts are you guys using? Those and Flavorstart increase load times considerably, so try doing a simple mapscript (fractal, pangea) and not using Flavor, see if it is still horrifically slow.

    EDIT: Finally installed 051 and checked everything out myself, then checked Opera's save. Deletion of the Marble freed up the stack to attack your city. They were on a pillage mission, but for some reason weren't pillaging, so I'll have to see precisely why they weren't doing so.

    Ok, tried a test load using fractal. It loaded fine; ya know, good speed for my PC. Prolly a tiny bit slower than normal FfHII or even Orbis. But still good enough. I'm going to try loading a simple map and Flavour. See how that goes. I'll report back.

    I still wonder if it could be sped up enough that loading complex maps and Flavour would load at a tolerable speed. :confused:

    Edit: Ok. Loading a simple mapstrict and Flavourstart worked fine. Let's try adding more civs now. ;)

    Edit2: So, I got bold and did one test load with a simple mapscript, more civs (15 including my own), and several more options (All Unique Features, Dark Forest, etc.)! I was using the Erebus mapscript before. I've concluded that, for me (and prolly others using a Windows Vista Service Pack 2 PC), it loads at a good speed when using a simple mapscript. Flavourstart and lots of civs doesn't slow it down too much. :goodjob:

    The Dural College of Theology and the schools for each religion cannot be built. Fixable by making all of them unique Dural buildings in CivilizationInfos.xml

    Also, 2 Dural buildings are named "College". The unique building from feudalism and the new unique library.

    Edit: The Dural courthouse has the same problem and solution as the college of theology.

    Edit2: For some reason, after adding the college and the schools to the Dural, they all work fine except the AV school. I've double checked the XML and everything appears to be correct, but it won't show up in the city or in the civilopedia.
