I finaly have a hint:
I tried to play without constructing bases, and it doesn't crash (for now)

The mod is too big to upload here.
You can download it here :

Hello again.
It didn't take long to crash this time...
So here's the new crashing saved game and the mod.

(file #29911)

But I have modified some files in the misc and amplio2 directory...
So what I must do is make my own tileset instead before sending you anything.

I suppose the saved game will not be compatible after that :(
So I will have to play again and when it crashes, send you another saved game with my mod this time.

This could take some time, because the crash is somewhat rare.

Yes, the ruleset would be needed too. Sorry for not noticing the part about you using your own ruleset.

I suppose you will need all files of the mod too... if you want to run the saved game.

Can you attach such a savegame to reproduce the problem?

Freeciv crashes sometimes when I click "Turn Done".
I really don't have any explanation, because I just can't see a pattern.
But when it crashes, it crashes again if I restart with the last saved game.

Sometimes when I load another saved game (like 1 or 2 turns before), it crashes again at the same turn... but sometimes not.
The crash may come in the first 10 turns or at turn 150 (like I said : no pattern)

Maybe it's something I modified in the effects.rulest or a new unit or building... (I'm using my own ruleset and tileset)
But I'm pretty sure I have done it right.

Is there a known crash with an effect?

(I'm using Freeciv 2.5.6 GTK+2 client on Windows XP, playing against AI players only)

Sorry for my English, it's not my first language...
