As the title says. I tried going onto world builder since I haven't been there for a long time since vanilla to be precise and I decide to make a map. I download it on (new computer) and the thing loads up I press world builder and then as it loads it just stop and says not responding and I am ticked off. I heard around the forums that world builder is not working but I guess I forgot about that.
Yes, there's some long thread around here of people reporting this, can't find it at the moment. Some people have found work-arounds, like exiting Steam and then starting World Builder, or to start World Builder from the World Builder file in the program files.
None of the fixes works for me and I've got Windows 8 - that seems to be the system for which a fix is hardest.
have tried work arounds i could find but have not been sucessfull on my system. my computer knowlege is limited, i ask those who know what they are doing why do the developers not put into undates a "undo" function that that lets you return to the verison you had that was working? is this possible? thanks
All the poster said was "Due to a recent patch in Steam, WorldBuilder is having problems launching an internal instance of Civ5 and thus resulting in an "infinite hang". We are currently working on an update that will fix this." No ETA.
This is my first post but I am an avid fanatic and reader. Today though, I felt compelled to join. Since steam did an apparant update today 2 issues have arise and i wanted to see if you could help me.
Issue 1) Civilization V Worldbuilder won't load: I am unable to load this application through either my steam homepage or through the work around (by exiting steam and running the exe file from the program files). Every time I try to load it one of two new error message appear: "You cannot load worldbuilder whilst civilization v is running" or, if I have completely exited steam, "....."
This is even though I am not playing civilization v or have played civilization v since restarting my computer.
This leads on to the second challenge:
2) Once I have laoded steam, I am unable to exit steam because it says"please exit civilization V before exiting steam."
This is quite frustrating. I have uninstalled everything and reinstalled everything and still am having the same challenges. Anyone else having this? Below is the error report

I am having the same problem. There were launch problems a few weeks ago, but I could get around them by launching from windows explorer, but that is no longer possible, as this seems to be an entirely new issue. Additionally, if I do attempt to launch world builder, then try to launch it again or just try to play the game, I get a message that says the game is already running, even though it is not indicated in task manager. The only way is to restart the computer. Steam sucks.
I don't know if this problem is known or not, but I can't access World Builder anymore. I tried to use the SDK for the first time in many months and I got a message saying I needed to install new components. I did that and tried to load it. I got an error message. FWIW, if I try to run it again, it tells me I have to quit Civ5 first (which I can only do through Control-Alt-Delete). If I do that, I can get the first error message again.
