Summary0011805: Game crashes in world generation when history is more than around 20 years
DescriptionI just installed 0.47.05 on my MacBook. I did the whole terminal thing executed at the beginning of this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfo8BHMBuNY&t=193s [^]

It worked, I got the game running. I had to change the [PRINT_MODE:2D] to [PRINT_MODE:STANDARD] to remove the white screen.

Once I began the creation of a new world, however, it would crash when generating history. This occurred both when I was messing around with general parameters (e.g. mineral occurrence, savagery, etc) and when I left them all on default Mediums/Sparse. I noticed that this crash was occurring roughly 20 years into history generation, so I changed it to the 5-year history generation, which fixed it, confirming the whole year-based crash.
Steps To ReproduceDownload 0.47.05 for Mac
Move the folder to a new location and rename it "dwarf fortress"
Open the "df" file (where it'll say something about not being able to run the .exe)
Go to a new terminal window execute the steps at the beginning of this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfo8BHMBuNY&t=193s [^]
change the [PRINT_MODE:2D] to [PRINT_MODE:STANDARD]
Generate new world from the 125 year or greater start.

Saw the same on macOS Big Sur 11.6 and DF 0.47.05

Workaround: It worked for me when using the "[DFHack] Lazy Mac Pack (v0.47.05)" with print mode set to TWBT
