    Do I need to re-mod my game (cause of the site change)? I haven't added any mods, but the game can't load/ crashes on start?

    Are you running the latest UIM?

    To my knowledge; let me look.
    And I realize that message was super unclear, so I'll repost it more sensibly.

    It had two errors, one was a mod error so I was able to fix that easy, but then that line I posted.

    I'll redownload UIM and let you know!

    Skullz, I redownloaded UIM and I still got this line:
    [18:50:12] SimTrack strTrackManager.cpp (1360) ErrorBuild Unknown vehicle <FreightVan>, check Tags.cfg

    That's what's preventing starting the game

    Well I would say there is a mod that's using a tag that is not in the UIM but i could be wrong.
    I thought the only mod that needed the UIM tags to be updated was the mod by PJC.

    well.. if have no idea about logs..
    but "<FreightVan>" let me think of the ploppable freight truck mod which caused a lot of trouble and crash's.. then it has been removed from (old) xlex
    you got that mod installed?
    just an idea

    Hey Mr.X2 and skullz, on generation city I found somebody with the same problem, and they seemed to think it was from a mod on the XLN site, but didn't say which one specifically. They did say a 'cargo vehicle' (Google translated; "véhicule de fret" was the original posting.). I've deleted all my mods with the keyword 'vehicle' as I have none with 'van' or 'freight'. After deleting all with 'vehicle' still no luck. I'll see if I have that downloaded. Do you know who it was by? I think I may have it downloaded, but I'm not sure...

    What's weird is that I've not had this problem at all before, and haven't installed any mods in awhile.

    I checked to see if I had that mod downloaded and I don't.
    I'll delete all mods and see how that goes :(
    Nothing quite as sad as seeing 574 files get deleted, and deleting all my cities, let's hope this works. If it doesn't I'll just reinstall the game I suppose.

    Welp, deleted all my mods worked. Sad to have them all go and all my cities basically gone...
    Skullz thank you so much for your help. I seriously cannot thank you enough for your help! (y)

    Well at least you know its a mod causing it. On that page I posted the link to, it has the patch name.
    XLN_Br41n_Truck_Ploppables_V1.0.patch
    If thats not in your folder then you must have a couple of other mods clashing.
    I lost a city last week due to an error. Think it was the Japanese house mod by atyotyotyo as it was the last thing I remember adding to my city.

    True, I searched for the patch and it wasn't that. I tried deleting all my latest downloads and no luck. Time to redownload! I'll try and look at it as a good thing, but man does that stink.
    I'll just have to rebuild I suppose, but it could have turned out worse.

    It always helps to make back ups of your cities just in case something like this happens.

    It stinks to lose your work, but a fresh start with more knowledge isn't a bad thing in the end.

    Yeah, I now believe it's almost a necessity to keep a backup of your mods in a separate folder somewhere after suffering something similar. Having a backup saves you from all the hassle of finding those mods on the net if you have had to delete all mods from the game folder.

    You need to have them stashed away in a working format so they can be dumped into the PAKs folder without a fuss.
    I also have them in their respective folders (named as they were posted on the XLN) with either the html page or a txt
    Example
    example.PNG description with images.

    this error caused by wrong installation UIM
    I manage to fix it by install uim on desktop, and then copied those files manually to game folder.
    You'll see the uim installation folders looks same with game folders
