I recently was away from the game for a few weeks while I moved. No I'm ready to start playing again. I loaded several new mods and played one time with no problem. Now the game is freezing up during start up. I get the following two lines in my game log: Spoiler: game log [13:00:21] CORE mcFile.cpp ( 198) Error can't open file Data/Design/Layout/Road/R_Road_40x15/R_Road_40x15_USA/R_Road_40x15_Empty.layout [13:00:21] SIMLAYOUT sltCoLayouts.cpp ( 173) Error [sltCoLayouts] : can't get layout : "Data/Design/Layout/Road/R_Road_40x15/R_Road_40x15_USA/R_Road_40x15_Empty.layout" in prototype : "data/design/buildings/construction/road/road_usa/r_cnkhgd_usa_new15m.class" I have removed all the new mods, but the problem stays the same. Any thoughts on what mod could be causing this? My city is pretty big btw - 7.5 million pop right now. But I've had bigger with no problems. Thanks for your help.
