Summary0001461: Crash when creating activity zone
DescriptionI was setting an activity area and then I realized there was the option to change how the activity area is defined. I had already defined a single space of an activity center. I then pressed the button to get from rectangle to flow and when I realized what it did, I wanted to exit out since I did not need it. I pressed ESC and the game instantly crashed.
Steps To ReproduceI began a new fortress and placed 1 single tile of activity space and proceeded to define by flow and before accepting the room flow, I pressed ESC which caused the crash bug to repeat. I have recreated the bug about twice.
Additional Informationthere were conditions under which it wasn't repeatable, I don't know why. If you can't repeat it, try saving and exiting and when you enter try the same process again.

Are you sure you're playing on version .31.03?
Because this issue (or one very similar to it) was supposed to have been resolved in .31.02.

hmm... ok the one piece of information I probably should have shared was that it was from a .31.01. save folder. Let me gen a new world and see if it happens again.

The issue you're talking about, Logical2u, is not what happened to me. I didn't actually set activity area... only switched to flow selection and when I realized it was not what I wanted, I pressed ESC to cancel out of it before actually using flow selection to set the activity area. When I pressed ESC, the game instantly crashed.

I just tried it again with a world actually generated using 31.03 and was able to cause it to crash again.

Also, I keep trying it to make sure I'm getting it right, you have to place using the rectangle selector 1 tile of an activity zone, then in the same place enter into placing a new activity zone on top of that with the flow placer. Then when you have a rectangle selected using the flow selector but before accepting it, press ESC as if to cancel it.

Let me also apologize for making this a flows thing, I was in a hurry at the same time as being exhausted so I connected "flow selection" with that until I realized it was about liquid flows.

I have a save where you can recreate this. However, it seems like it only happens if I dig out an area and designate the zone in the same session. If I dig out the area and then save and reload, I cannot reproduce the bug. Thankfully I had a seasonal backup save which saved right before my dwarves started digging. [^]

Steps to recreate:

1. Start a zone somewhere in the bended portion of the "L" shaped room after the dwarves dig it out. Like I said, if I let them dig it out then save/reload, the bug does not happen.

2. Select "Flow" and have it flow out until the zone just spills over the entrance

3. Hit escape

I am on 31.03

I'm making this one a child of 0001119 since the notes here have more info about reproducing the bug.

when it happens to me it has nothing to do with actually resizing the flow.
Also, the flow zone must be over an already placed zone of at least 1 tile.

1. open up the activity area creator
2. set at least a one tile activity area
3. Use the flow selection method to highlight a new activity area OVER the activity area you just defined.
4. press ESC before confirming it.
