|Summary||0004270: Dwarf Fortress freezes forever|
|Description||I have a fortress that was 8x8 on the embark screen, and has a population of 40 dwarves (and about a dozen other creatures, counting tame animals, wild animals, and monsters). It is in the fall of the second year. It is unplayable because the game keeps crashing. Dwarf Fortress uses 1 gigabyte of RAM when I try to play this fortress, and crashes pretty much immediately as soon as I unpause the game after loading it. I have 2 gigabytes of RAM and don't get a low memory error message when Dwarf Fortress freezes. (It doesn't crash with any kind of error message; it just freezes. I waited 10 minutes before giving up on it.) I have Windows Vista Home Basic, Service Pack 2, if that matters.|
The only reason I can think of why it crashes is because it uses too much memory. But that doesn't really make a lot of sense when it uses only half my RAM and I don't get a low memory message. So I don't have a GOOD possible explanation for it.
Though I've never had an endless freeze on a 4x4 embark site, I've had plenty times when it froze for a minute or two.
|Steps To Reproduce||Embark on a really large site.|
The only things unusual about my embark site are: It is entirely in Cold and Freezing biomes, including a glacier, and the glacier biome contains a volcano.
|Additional Information||I have a save game, but I'm not sure where to upload it.|
