0003580: Worldgen crashes in major mods
Whenever I generate large/medium worlds in any of my big mods (Genesis, Wasteland) the game crashes around year 200 in 80% of cases. The mods have the same content as for 0.31.16 (where they worked fine) and have only fixes from 0.31.16->17 incorporated.

Genesis: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=3391 [^]
Wasteland: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=2376 [^]

The crashes are more frequent in Genesis, probably because of the bigger number of modded races.
1. Unpack and start any of the mentioned mods (better Genesis because it crashes more often).
2. Generate a world with "advanced parameters", settings "large".
3. It will commonly crash around 200+ years or even earlier.
There are no RAW errors (and of course no errorlog.txt reports).

Sometimes I get "random buffer overflow" in errorlog.txt.
No tags attached.

As a note, another user noted that addition of new night creatures can alone destabilize world gen and lead to multiple crashes.

So it may be affected by additional semimegabeasts with lairs.

Yeah, the higher number of civs was causing a rare leadership problem with mixed civilization pops to arise more often. I didn't see any semimegabeast problems, so I'll need to resolve that separately once I know how to reproduce it. The Genesis crash I can reproduce is fixed for 0.31.18.
