Yesterday CTD issues rose when I downloaded a batch of mods for my game. Somehow, this totally caused my game to go absolutely nutzo. It wouldn't load existing cities, and when you try to scroll on a new one, it crashes. So I tried starting with an empty plugins folder. That didn't help. So I ruled out that the game may have a bug in it. So I did a fresh reinstall. That didn't help.

I was doing some stuff in iLives reader but I didn't make backups of my critical SC4 files. But that wasn't the issue, considering I didn't make any modifications except for a custom loading screen (which somehow didn't work). So I trashed that.

After reinstalling I found out that edge scrolling wouldn't cause the game to crash, but scrolling with the mouse did. So I enabled edge scrolling, disabled windowed mode, and then that solved that problem. Thing is now I have to edge scroll all the time, and I am also saving so frequently you would never believe it.

So the moral of the story? Never go off doing what I did, was loading a million mods on at a time and messing up the game.

I don't have that many mods, and I still get CTDs. I do install mods on occasion, but not very often.

I use quite a few mods, but the CTDs are usually linked to other stuff.
Mostly it's still the old Puzzle-piece problem or just some problem with conflicting plugins.

I found out it was a "Willsims long train mod", part of the name was "FIXED". Sure was fixed allright.

From now on I will test my new stuff on a blank sandbox tile before I try loading it into one of my cities. I lost the city I showed in the "Show us your downtowns" topic here on Simmania. Double =( Sad
