Took a quick look at the Output log, looks like one (or more) of the workshop maps downloaded has thrown an exception due to missing/corrupted meta file

The map Prima Cairos seems to be causing the issues, try unsubscribing from it then re-verifying your steam cache, see if that fixes it by removing the problem map.

In the mean time i'll ask one of the coders to take a look at your log, they'll understand the meaning of the error better than I do.


I did as you advised.

1. Removed map Prima Cairos.

2. Checked the integrity of game cache.

It did not help - the import map is empty.


That suggests the map hasn't been correctly removed (not your fault, it'll be a problem on our end), I guess we'll have to wait for a coder to check the log and see what they suggest.

I applied a quickfix which will allow to view importable maps again.
However this is just fixing the symptoms and not the root cause.
I am waiting for a mate who is away between the years to figure how this case can even happen as it shouldn't.

Not matter what the issue will be resolved for you with next update.


It appears this is linked to another issue where maps with a colon in their name (a : ) aren't saved properly so are causing exceptions when your lobby tries to load their data.


I checked - I have no cards (created by me, or subscriptions) with a colon (:) in the title.


I have no maps*, amendment.

flaggin as fixed, please report back if the issue still persists in the next patch :)


Today released a new patch is good. I played after installation. The map editor appeared imports - official maps can be imported. But maps of the workshop manager that I created, "Import" button gray, pressing her to anything not lead, that is, you can not import them.

The only problem with maps that I created.
