This World Builder is a very strange application. I encountered the same problem as everyone else in march 2013 with the obvious.NET errors. So I removed the SDK, removed all.NET and C++ libraries, reinstalled the SDK and windows updated the.NET packages.
All was fine until this week (w28) I guses it is related to the 'pre-patching' of CIV 5 to cope with 'Brave new World' Now the world builder hangs for ever. I found this thread: And tried the solution provided.
The World builder starts, BUT!! It just doesn't work.
Civilization 5 Q&A. Civ 5 WorldBuilder not launching. It happened after I tried loading the World Builder a second time after installing it. I posted on here.
Any Firaxis members around to tell us if there is a new World builder(SDK) comming soon? As a sidenote, why won't microsoft make the.NET C++ packages backward compatible? So we could have one package and not x^y for each application which uses them. Originally posted by:generally there are much bigger civ hubs like civfanatics and such. If they were going to have a prescence it'd probably be in those much older and bigger community sites.
If you have a bizarre esoteric mod question civfanatics/apolyton is a far better resource imho. I don't know how Civ Fanatics can be considered to be a bigger Civ hub than Steam. Civ Fanatic has 15 Civ V active threads in the past 24 hours. Steam has over 160 active threads in the past 24 hours. I think it's strange that Firaxis doesn't have a presence on Steam as well. The only thing that I can think of is that Steam is too busy for them to be able to effectively communicate and respond (but, really, I don't buy that.) Edited to add: Found a specific Civ V BNW subforum with 61 active threads in the past 24 hours.
Combined that's 76 active threads which is still less than half of the 160 on Steam. I guess it's a matter of perception?
It is not like previous civs I guess where it was in the 'menu' tab. I did the mod >single player >started a map and I do not see anything that lets me go into world builder while playing. So I saved the map. I started world builder and then loaded the map. But I am not familiar enough with the functions and it is not showing me my units (which I even turned everything off to see nothing but units) or where my starting point is at. Making it very confusing for me. I could figure it out eventually but why?
I would have to save the map. Switch to WB.(ALT-TAB) Load the map. Do what I want, switch back to game and then load it back. If it wasn't for the loading I would be all for it. I hate the loading on Civ always takes to long.
Especially later in the game. Main reason why I never really use the save/load for a better goodie hut. OR Am I a clueless idiot and I still am not getting it?
