Impoverished Word Selector?
« on: April 09, 2009, 01:05:56 am »

"Impoverished Word Selector" keeps showing up in my errorlog. Does anyone know what it means? It seems to be causing DF to hang up when creating a new world.

I'm using 40d with the Legendary Lands mod.  Any help would be appricated.

Thanks. :)

The Impoverished Word Selector is a common error that actually has no really noticeable effect upon world generation. If that error message comes up, it will most likely not hurt you to just delete it from the errorlog and ignore it. If your DF is stopping in the middle of world gen, this error message is not the problem and something else is causing the stop to happen.
