Additional notes (Sorry for not adding this earlier): Removing all species of night trolls from the world gen removes all crashing.

What did you do to check the "non-breeding/genderless" part of this report?
Is it all animal people, or just the genderless/non-breeding ones?

I made an entity with bluejay men and there were no crashes at worldgen

I repeated it with fire men and it began crashing regularly. The rate of crashes lowered when I removed night trolls from the world.

I also tried it with leech men, and I got the same results. Except all crashes stopped when I removed night trolls.

Try adding the tag to everything except non-breeding/genderless animal people, see if you can generate several worlds in a row.

It seems that beetle people also cause crashes.

I actually think the likely cause of crashing is night creatures attempting to convert creatures that don't have skin?

If they dont have skin/fat/whatever i dont see how it's possible to change them without causing a crash.
