0007639: Crash on entering quest log after trying to enter a big human town
Save link : http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=9157 [^]

This save was generated under 0.40.03, and at that time there were lots of places that couldn't be accessed in adventure mode because of the lag.
0.40.04 solved this for the last places I checked, but I still encountered freezing after trying to stop in the city in which my adventurer is located in the save, so I killed the process (something I do routinely when freezing occurs).

Ever since, the game crashes everytime I try to access the quest log (Shift + Q), even when I get away from the city and try again.

However, if I stop someplace and then check the Quest Log, the game doesn't crash, even if I then go back to travel mode and try again.

BUT ! If after getting away from the city you come back to the place I saved (the tavern in the city) and you try to stop there, the game doesn't freeze, it just instantly crashes.
For the freeze :
1) Download and extract the save at http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=9157 [^]
2) Load game
3) hit 'd' to stop at the tavern
4) Enjoy the coldness of the freezed game

For the Quest log crash :
1) Download and extract the save at http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=9157 [^]
2) Load game
3) hit Shift + Q to open Quest Log
4) Crash the game into the mighty reefs of unstability

For the Tavern Stop Crash :
1) Download and extract the save at http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=9157 [^]
2) Load game
3) Go away from the city, in the wilderness
4) hit 'd' to stop in the middle of nowhere. From then on, opening the Quest Log should not crash the game.
5) hit 'T' to travel back to the tavern where the save was done, at the northeast of the city
6) hit 'd' to try and stop there
7) Slam into the wall of crash barring the door

Tested again under 0.40.05 : the quest log crash seems fixed !
The game still freezes when entering the city, probably because of overpopulation, which should not happen anymore if I understood correctly.

However the game still crashes if you get into the wilderness, stop, get back to town in that tavern you load the game and try to stop there.
Since it's not related to the quest log crash, should I open another ticket ?

Yes, this was a duplicate - if you have another specific instance of a crash (your tavern crash), please open a new report and move the save over. In general, try to keep reports focused on one problem at a time.
