Post by lilstrip »

loads fine if i revert back to 16.51... good thing i stopped working on this map to wait for the next update just in case it would have been a complete waste of time :P

would suck to have to start over but I am sure you guys are going to find a fix, if not i guess ill have to start from scratch but lets hope this 3 months project doesn't go to waste

You can not have "loading a save" not generating a log, the log is generated continuously when starting the game.

I will try again and see if it will generate one this time.

welp the game does the same thing. It doesnt even give a crash message it just closes in an instant with no logs being generated. I have a try and you will see it does the same thing even in 0.17.5... I wish i was doing something wrong to help but theres litterally nothing being outputted by the game to say what caused the game to just close itself. It doesnt even stop responding either, it just quits the game as if i just clicked exit game to windows in the main menu!

good news, the older version of the map being smaller managed to generate a log! good thing i actually kept them xD

its only 5000KB smaller and that seems to make the game spaz out for some odd reason

heres the log file

for some reason it now generated one using the current version of the scenario. I have no idea why it didnt make one before loading up the earlier version of the map...

i had a similar problem with a modded 16.51>17.5 import.
i was able to "downpatch" to 17.0 then import the 16.51 save file, then repatch to 17.5
i did not try loading the 16.51 save file in anything other than 17.0 or 17.5

Thanks for the report. I was able to find the problem and it's now fixed for the next version of 0.17.

In the meantime, if you load the save in 0.16 and remove all of the tiny-cliffs it should load in 0.17.

The fix is live already, you just need to update.

ayy it works, real quick before you flush this, are large rail curve planned for 0.17 or 0.18? If not I would really like to know because this map is so big if they are ever introduced I would like to update it to include stuff like this... already planning to make custom ruined buildings for the map as a mod and for that i am currently learning blender but I don't think ill ever have enough time to learn how to make curved rails :/

always wanted more rail variety since that would be much harder to mod than making building sprites so yeah, would be great to know!

Thanks again for this fix!
