0011214: Inorganic creatures crash game on viewing their description if they do not have a recent thought
Specifically, the description screen must be one of the one that shows recent thoughts. It does not crash if viewing the creature normally. Once the creature has a recent thought, crashes will not occur when viewing their description.
1. Spawn a bronze colossus or any other inorganic creature in Arena.
2. Take control of the creature.
3. View creature description.
4. Immediately crash.
Might relate to thought or emotion controlling tokens, but temporarily removing NOTHOUGHT, NOEMOTION, NOFEAR, and NO_THOUGHT_CENTER_FOR_MOVEMENT still caused crashes under the specific conditions mentioned above, so all I can think of is the creature being inorganic as the cause.

Seems to be similar to these two bugs?


Does it only crash in Windowed mode?

I only tried it in Windowed mode, so I don't know. It does seem similar to those other two bugs though.

Gonna go ahead and mark this off with the fix of 0010831, which probably covers it. Feel free to re-report similar issues once 47.02 is out.
