0009434: Crash when walking around elven forest retreat
I made a lizard man adventurer and I have a crash whenever I walk around this site. I have no idea what's causing it, but it's happening consistently.
Walk around

Does the crash happen during fast [T]ravel, or normal travel? Also, is there a specific location in the site where the crash occurs?
2015-12-28 17:59   
It happens during normal travel and the spot in and around where you load in is where it happens (it actually crashed when I saved). Try walking north. That usually does it.

I tested your save several times:

1. Crashed while walking north
2. Walked north w/o trouble, crashed upon trying to fast-travel south
3. Fast-travel east, then back, then north, then back, dropped out of fast travel, crashed while walking north
4. Walked north one map square, crashed while walking back south
5. Walked SE from start, then around in a counterclockwise circle, crashed while walking south back to start
6. Walked NW, then SE back and forth several times within starting map square; exited starting square to SE and returned w/o trouble; exited starting square to NW and crashed upon return

I also noticed that, every time you load the game, two cave-ins occur nearby. I believe that those are the result of unsupported tree branches collapsing. I've occasionally seen both of these behaviors happen in forest retreats before, but not often. They usually occur together.

Yeah, trees love causing cave-ins in my experience.

This seems to happen to every major settlement I go to.

Are you using any third party tools or have you modified your raws in any way? When was the world generated? Do other adventurers in this world crash too?
2016-01-03 10:33   
(edited on: 2016-01-03 10:34)
1. No third-party tools, but I did make changes to init and d_init, and I disabled aquifers.
2. Pocket size, long history, very high civs, high sites, very high beasts, high savagery, frequent minerals
3. Yes

It might be worth closing this since DF has changed so much since this was submitted. I doubt the save even loads anymore.

Ok, thanks for the follow-up. There were several fixes related to adventurers entering sites, so it is possible it was fixed at some point. If you encounter newer issues with crashing while entering sites, please submit a new ticket and save.
