In the year 2500 the human race was conquered by a more advanced alien race. Every human being was either killed or rounded up onto a massive space ship to be used as slaves. Along the way to the aliens' homeworld, one man by the name of Mike Slate succeded in hijacking the slave ship using a box cutter he managed to sneak aboard.

The slave ship was forced to land on an earthlike planet and all humans were released. As they exited the ship, they soon realized that they were not alone. Several other humanoid alien races were also enslaved aboard the ship. Apparently, the aliens went from solar system to solar system conquering and enslaving. Over the course of 500 years, each alien race migrated to a different part of the planet, seeking conditions similar to their own homeworld. Some developed metal technology rather quickly while others couldn't figure it out. The year is now 3000 and the human race is in a struggle for the right to exist.

Does anybody had this bug. After few turns probably 20-30 the campaign gives a bug and drop me from the game. Then I return to my campaign from the last save and counts one turn, and on the second one it drops me again. PLS The mod is awesome!!!

Having the same issue. Except I'm playing as the Minotaurs. All I remember is a sacrificial war being started then a few turns later I'm crashing almost every turn. I Keep reloading the save and but then crashes a few turns later. Been doing this for the past three attempts hoping it will stop :P. On turn 33 right now.

What faction are you playing as? This sounds like the exact issue I had playing as the humans before I added patch 4.30.

Well, this happens with both the humans and the Ceroleans. I haven't tried to play other nations. Maximum 15 turns and starts this bug. And I installed the update V.2.

It sounds like you don't have patch 4.30. When did you download Planetwar? If you got the original download before April 30, 2013, then there is an bug. The new download has been patched.

Well, i've tried playing multiple faction and the same things happens. It isnt on the same turns but when I look into the log:
12:39:39.791 [game.script.trigger] [trace] Trigger <0096_Increase_Global_Standing_New_Turn> fired

12:39:40.177 [system.rpt] [error] Uh oh. This isn't good. No idea why, but exiting now. Sorry pal.

Maybe it has to do with some factions coming close to world domination? Kind of like the warning pop-up in vanilla that says that "if you have any plan of conquering the world now is the time to put it into action as another faction has come close" or something like that.

Thanks for the help! This is a different error from the one I had patched. Hopefully I can fix this for the next version.

I haven't had any bug similar to that. I've been able to play just fine up to turn 120 so far with minor crashes.

I'm not sure what is preventing you from getting past the menu. It sounds like some files are missing from your download. You could try re-downloading the main download.

Somewhat a really interesting mod. Actually it´s an humor mod. You will have Humans fighting aganist Predators, Shreks, Dinossaurs and many other kind of alien/creature. All this with medieval weapons.

btw, there are some bugs around. Be that missing texts, missing faction icons, and maybe some balance issues, but considering that it´s the very first release, it´s ok.
