0011230: Crash on worldgen during world history generation
I set the world to gen while I was gone this morning, and when I had come back, Dwarf Fortress had crashed around year 250 in the history phase of worldgen
I had the following set for my world options:
World Size: Large
History: Long
# of Civs: Very High
Max # of Sites: Very High
# of Beasts: Very High
Natural Savagery: Very High
Mineral Occurance: Everywhere
I'll run the world gen with the same settings later and see if I get the same result.
crash, history, worldgen

The seeds which caused the crash would be quite useful if they crash reliably. Please copy them from "gamelog.txt" and post them here. Thanks!

I have a parameter set that seems to crash consistently at around year 358. (Windows 10 Laptop)

Here are seeds, with which the vanilla 0.47.01 crashes consistently at 60th year - so it should be easier to wait for crash when testing:

errorlog.txt has this but not sure if it's related:
MOUNTAIN trying to generate musical form without speech or instruments
2020-02-04 17:47   
Is MOUNTAIN gnomes?

I also had a world gen crash with a complaint about "MOUNTAIN trying to generate musical form without speech or instruments"

MOUNTAIN refers to dwarf civilization entities.
2020-02-05 03:52   
Mountain entity fortresses that fall to clowns from the inside aren't their own type but are conquered by site-less army when the underworld passage is created.

Embark neighbour screen identifies them as goblin evil entity, and natively posess only percussion on raws, if there is any conflict of instrument usage or creation of new musical forms across time against MOUNTAIN entity site; since they also generate their own gods too 0011262 , it may be relevant.

Had a crash to desktop during worldgen. Mostly unmodded; only added a couple iron-bearing rocks.

Was generating Medium world, Long history, Medium Number of Civilizations, Medium Maximum number of Sites, Very High Number of Beasts, Very High Natural Savagery, Frequent Mineral Occurrence. Crash occurred slightly after year 400.

Messages in error log:

Don't know how to find the seed

I was getting a rather consistent crash that I figured out involved trying to get the subtype of a null item (subtype meaning e.g. ITEM_WEAPON_SWORD_SHORT for short swords, though it's an ID rather than a string), but trying some of the seeds here is getting me nothing. The most recent example (WG0iiK0AiuqwkiWImsoG etc.) I've currently run to the year 1500.
