Summary0010369: Game crash (likely) when Dwarves return from mission
DescriptionWhen I send dwarves on a mission, I think mostly when it involves "exploring" places and where places are rumored to have artifacts, the Dwarf Fortress window closes randomly after all of the dwarves have left the map, after some amount of time. Presumably, the game is crashing when the dwarves are returning from the mission.
Steps To Reproduce1. Go into the (as previously known) [C]ivilization menu.
2. Choose a location to send a squad of dwarves, specifically where artifacts are rumored to be. (May also matter if they are "exploring" versus "raiding")
3. Wait until all dwarves have left.
4. Sometimes, they will return, sometimes, it will crash.

May need to test further to see if crash occurs after they return but as they are bringing back rescued hostages/people seeking sanctuary.

5 dorfbucks says this is due to them trying to talk to an unknown entity.

I have this happen when all of the attacking squads leaders die or get captured.
Check if your squads have "VACANT" at the first position some time after sending them.

My fort was imported from 43.05.(oops double edit)
I think i have this issue, i was raiding a site with no population so i think its definitely to do with exploring as opposed to raiding.
Raiding towers worked at least.

Still happens in 44.03. Sent two squads on the same raid of a goblin outpost,and now the game crashes everytime they come back.
Also when i look into my squads none of the positions are VACANT, so I dont think it has to do anything with dworfs dying, or it simply doesnt show up if someone is dead before they return.

Here is a save a few moments before the game crashes. The Squad is in the process of entering the map. The dwarves that come back even carrying the loot as the report says. One thing special is that the artifact battle axe is strapped to the back of one of the dwarves. 44.03 [^]

Edit: Sorry, it doesn´t happen anymore with this savefile. But I tried it a few times from the seasonal save (9 ingame days) and it always crashed. But the save at the moment of the return seems to work

Edit2: So I had the same situation again. And saving while the squad enters the map fixed the problem again

mischief from Freenode provided this save, which seems to be the same issue. It crashed the first 3 times I loaded it after around 5-10 seconds, but on the 4th attempt, a squad returned around the same time, so I think it's another instance of this bug. [^]

Still having this issue in 44.06. As much as I'd love to pillage and raid, the unpredictable crashes just ruin the experience.

44.06 and 44.07 it crashes when (presumably) my squad returns. When I retire the fortress and reclaim it, my squad is back with all their kills in their kill list.

EDIT: Received a pop up with the crash that read "Nemesis unit load failed"

Iteb Abantulon, member of squad sent to explore a ruin, comes home in a migrant wave. The game crashes soon after that. Reproducible every time.

Similar Error:
Squad of 4 comes back from a raid, as soon as they return the game immediatley crashes.
I was lucky to even see the message saying that they returned. [^]

Every one in the squad is displayed as VACANT in the [m]ilitary view, but ONLY if viewing equipment.
When viewing the squad normally, it says they are just traveling.
Seems my squad was wiped out.

For me raiding is fine in in the beginning of a fort but crashes after a year or two when raiding. Tested in a few worlds.

I've had frequent (but not consistent) issues with a similar issue. After a raid finishes, sometimes saving will cause a crash RIGHT after saving seems almost finalized. Starting the game again will reveal the save loads as though nothing went wrong, with no problems apparent. However, on loading the save it will print errorlogs such as this:

NULL play item on load: id 0000560
NULL play item on load: id 0000947
Site Map: Extra Item Occupancy 72,99,131

This save is in the middle of a raid. Wait a couple minutes, and it will crash after they return. The site had a rumored artifact and the mission was Raid and destroy site. I've tried running it several times and always get the crash.

Before this save I sent them on the same mission, and got the same crash, but didn't realize it was the raid until I saved in the middle of my second attempt. [^]

I have this in 44.09 if I send a squad without a squad leader, when it tries to return it crashes. (Nevermind. Crashes upon return even if I send it out with all squads members and leaders full.)
