0009129: Crash when calendar is advancing
I created a new world and had a good look at the new stuff in the legends. Then I wanted to start my own game, so started fortress mode. The calendar showed up, and upon progressing to the next day the game crashed.

The world I generated had a normal history length, was small with frequent mineral occurence (because I'm still a bit of a noob). Generating a world with different settings did work, but generating a different world with the same settings did cause a crash again (though on another day of the calendar).

Please do upload that save to the DFFD ( http://dffd.bay12games.com/index.php [^] ) and provide a link to it here. Saves are generally helpful.

I think I'm having the same issue on my save. Though, the number of days it takes to crash varies. I've seen n=6: 2,4,4,6,6,10 for the date shown when the crash occurs on this save

Custom world parameters. Enough changes made that I don't feel like listing them all.

This has been reported in various other places.
It looks like bugs 0009157, 0009159, 0009145, 0009146, 0009149, 0009160, and 0009158 are all duplicates of this bug.
I can confirm on my setup which is Windows 10, i5-5200U CPU, 8G RAM, and 250G SSD. I used a medium world with short history and all the rest default. I've seen dates ranging from Granite 2 to 11 on this crash. This is a fresh world with everything vanilla in 0.42.01
I've been able to reproduce this bug every single time I try to start a new game -- adventure or fortress mode -- I haven't been successful even once.

You can see the Windows crash log here: http://pastebin.com/Q7z8sfet [^]
You can find my savegame here: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=11327 [^]

EDIT: I'm genning a new world to try and reproduce in another save.
EDIT: The new, smaller, world does not appear to have this bug. I'm only getting this in the medium world I genned.
EDIT: This doesn't happen in a small sized world either.

Happens to me 100% of the time be it Adventure or Fortress mode. Seems to crash between day 2 and 5. I've tried on several different worlds, it invariably crashes during the calendar advancement.

EDIT: I can also confirm that it doesn't seem to occur with small worlds.

Bug 0009137 is also a duplicate of this.

With more testing, it does not seem to occur with up to small sized worlds. Pocket, smaller, and small work fine. It only happens in worlds medium or larger for me -- even though I've got plenty of memory to run them.
It seems to be only specific worlds that are effected: I just genned a successful medium world. I have not run across this problem with any world smaller than medium, but I have seen it in several medium and large ones.

I downloaded six of these calendar crash saves, and they were all the same bug, which is now fixed. Hopefully that does it.
