where is the download??
Where can i download tehe terra 225 X 110 map???
Guys, I'm working on it. I hit a problem with CTD in the editor. I think I can play it just fine.
Okay, I need some serious help.
Here are my comp stats:
AMD XP 3000+
768 MB DDR SDRAM
NVidia GeForce 3 Ti 200 (64MB)
The editor keeps crashing on Aeric67's map. It doesn't matter what graphics level I chose. But It always crashes after looking at about half the map.
Any Ideas as to what will fix this the most?
going to max RAM of 1GB or a 256 MB video card?
or will a 128 MB video card work?
What apears to work for me on Aeric67's map,
AMD 64 3200+
GFource 5700 128 Ram
1 Gig 400 DDR Ram Mainboard.PC 3200 I think
Hope this helps
BTW I'm running it on both XP Pro 32 Bit and XP Pro 64 Bit.
I guess the real question is, What happens when you are playing and can see or have conquered most the whole map?
I can play on the map. But I haven't gotten too far out of Europe. On the other hand, if I enter the Editor I look around much past the half way pint of the map. clearly I need more test data.
Flash, go download the latest patch(Start Civ4 go to Advanced and Get Updates). It will help very very much in relations to what your describing above. It's not your PC its the game. I have a much beefier system and I had the same kind of issues. After the patch it fixed it.
Keep up the good work
Thanks TBear, but it didn't help.
Have you tried clearing your Civ4 cache?
Delete the folder called cache located at
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\
I hear that holding shift while loading Civ4 does it as well. But I would manually delete the folder.
Well I do know that Terra size worlds are no problem. So, I'm going to try a 150x75.
I have another question. How memory is lost due to the editor?
Could I be able to play a game normally that was say 180 x 90, but have trouble using the editor?
Well The new project is 160 x 72.
I have North America and Central America plotted but not detailed.
There is a lot of old terrain that was cleared, but it acts like sea coast (light blue in mapview). Does anyone know how to change that back to regular ocean?
Well, ocean and coast are completely different terrain types. Doesn't it work?
I'll go and check it out.
As for the previous question: Yes, I can definitely confirm that some big maps load to play but crash when you open them in the editor.
Basically, after clearing the map to all ocean, there is a shadow of the old terrain that remains.
Oh that. That should dissappear when you save the map and then reload it. It's been confirmed, I think by Sirian, that this is only a display issue, and that the actual map file is correct.
Actually, I figured that, but when I opened the map in the Mapviewer, the shadowed area became light blue like the coastal blue of the viewer.
I can't find a cashe folder. What is it called?
My 160 x 72 project is going well.
I have the northern Hemisphere done from N. America to India.
No crashes so far.
Good to hear you're progressing well.
Hold shifting during Civ's startup to clear the program's cache.
