Can't create a map. The game freezes.

Windows 10 64 bit, 8 Gm RAM, Intel(R) Core(TM) I7-4500 CPU1.80 GHz 2.40GHz GPU: AMD Radeon R7 M265, Intel(R) HD Graphics Family. Version game 1.5.1f5

Can't create a map. The game freezes. Watch the video.

Just click on "create map" and the game freezes, not responding. Waited 20 minutes, - it is useless, all the same. Have to kill game process using the windows task manager.

Regular bug, discovered today. I conducted "check integrity cache" (all files were successfully tested) - did not help.

War for the Overworld Launcher Log.txt


Game Version:
Steam Public

The problem, if not clear, in the map editor.

Restarted steam. Then entered the name manually, letter by letter. It helped. Previously copied from a file .txt (Notepad).

Under Review

Perhaps due to text formatting being pasted as well if you copied the text from somewhere breaking the map creation when it tried to save the text formatting code as part of the name string

Sorry Ontos, I can't reproduce, even when I have my game in Russian. Is there anything else that you did that might be causing this?

Can you link us to the webpage or whatever it was that you copy and pasted the original name text from (before you typed it manually)

The problem recurs. Now I create a map by entering the name manually. Size 122 by 122. On 4 players.

I think that this problem is specifically created to it I couldn't create a new map.

Possibly related bug: today I edited my old map "Divide et impera", saved, published locally, but when published to steam having this error, see screenshot:

Found this folder in steam, there's some information at the workshop. The path to the folder: D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\workshopbuilds :


It looks like your steamcloud space is full, can you delete some old save files and try again?

What to delete? You answered me in the topic about the missing maps and saves in the game.

Pending Third Party

I'm going to treat this as related to the other ticket and set this one to pending 3rd party.

I do not understand your last 2 comments. What to delete? What do you mean "set this one to "pending" 3rd party"? It expresses the idea clearly.

You have too many maps saved in steam's cloud. You've used up all the space that Steam gives a person to store data. So it's an issue with steam (the third party) not WFTO which is why it is a third party issue.

You need to delete some of the old maps which are saved on the steam cloud to make space for new ones. Any map which has already been published to the workshop can safely be deleted (from the steam cloud, don't delete them from the workshop itself) as you can always download it and re-import it if you want to make changes at a later date.

1. Where to watch the steamcloud limit and his fullness?

2. How to remove the map from the steamcloud?


Sorry, you have to delete old saves, but as you showed in the other ticket the folder is now empty. Since the folder is now empty can you reproduce this map creation issue?

The steam cloud will automatically delete maps when you remove them from your PC.

If you right click the game in Steam and go to Updates you can see the amount of space avalible on your Steam Cloud

Here, many more places. However, I removed almost all of the screenshots.

I think topic can be closed, new no such problems.

Completed - Next Patch

I think that because you have lost all you maps this issue is solved. We have also improved the window to tell you exactly why you cannot save a new map.
