    Please compress and attach you export_building.txt file and one set (3 pictures) of the picture files for castle_corn_exchange, regardless which culture.

    I meant the text\export_building.txt file - please send that one as well.

    Edit: I went through your EDB and you have a lot of buildings with the castle prefix. Do any of them show text or pictures? The reason why I am asking is the possibility that the 'castle' entry may mess up the data base\references as it is a fixed term in the EDB - the default buildings only use a "c" as prefix, eg c_gunsmith.

    Try changing one tree to that system and change the text and picture as well. Then try again. Example:

    castle_corn_exchange --> c_corn_exchange

    Yeah, sorry, i know what you mean. Take this
    Edit: Yes, the rest of the buildings with castle_ prefix works fine.
    Edit2: I changed prefixes to c_corn_echange like you said, but i still have default images.

    A crash happens if the small pictures have different sizes.
    The default pic (RTW) will happen if the naming isn't correct (spelling) or it's not in TGA format.

    You need the following pics:

    ...\[culture]\buildings\#[culture]_[building name]_constructed.tga - this is the main display and the size can be variable.
    ...\[culture]\buildings\#[culture]_[building name].tga - size should be 78*62
    ...\[culture]\buildings\construction\#[culture]_[building name].tga - size should be 64*51

    The last two are for the building browser and the building display

    exactly! now it works! thx again man!
    if u allow me to put this in the beginners way:
    first to edit EDB ( any scripting error will CTD )
    then put TGA's to culture folder with proper names
    finally add descriptions ( basic and culture ) to text/export_buildings or game will CTD
    hope this will help to all beginners ( like i am )

    do i have to add description for monastery_c for greek and eastern_european factions, and opposite for monastery_o?
    maybe i get CTD because of that? ( missing entries )

    I don't think you have to have any culture descriptions at all (unless you need them to say something different)

    {building monastery_catholic_name} &
    {building monastery_orthodox_name}
    are wrong though should just be
    {monastery_catholic_name} &
    {monastery_orthodox_name}

    no, not unless you have a destroy_buildings thing in the campaign script
    the text displayed should be the one from the faction/culture that built it - or the plain
    {thing}
    {thing_desc}
    {thing_desc_short}
    ones if you haven't added culture/faction ones.


    ahhh - in your EDB you've got

    "religion_level bonus 2"
    but you haven't specified a religion at the start of the tree - look up vanilla churches to see how that works...

    if you want it to switch according to who owns it then I think you need
    "amplify_religion_level 2"
    instead

    I agree, it would be the "religion_level bonus 2" that causes the crash because of the missing religion definition in the EDB. Defining the religion in the EDB will then get the building destroyed if the settlement is occupied by a faction with a different religion.
    The incorrect export_building entry {building xyz_name} will cause a crash when you go into the building browser but not otherwise. As long as you have the neutral descriptions the culture based descriptions are optional.

    I know everyone says that... but have you actually tested it in Kingdoms? I set up a load of new buildings in my mod that way and they definitely don't get automatically destroyed (I had to put it in campaign_script)

    Have also given regions 'hinterland_info_xxx' buildings which carry a religion - they stay there and keep influencing the region towards that religion even when a different religion occupies it (trying to mimic permanent cultural tendencies)

    well, i must say that's rocket science for me guys!
    for start i'll go the easiest way changing "religion_level bonus 2" into "amplify_religion_level 2" ( changing campaign-script is too much for me ).
    only problem now is that saved game is not compatible, so i must start all over again.
    i'll post the result ASAP.
    thx for help guys!

    My bad: you need the temple entry plus the religion to get the building destroyed. hinterland obviously makes the building indestructible, no matter what.

    well, i must say i'm not good enough to resolve this problem, so i need help ( again... ). i add religion line in script, and change to amplify_religion but still is not good. building did not disappear after conquered by other religion and have wrong description. here:

    i think script is good:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    building monastery_catholic{
    religion catholic
    levels monastery_c
    {
    monastery_c requires factions { northern_european, southern_european, } and building_present_min_level temple_catholic church
    {
    capability
    {
    happiness_bonus bonus 1
    amplify_religion_level 2
    population_health_bonus bonus 1
    }
    material wooden
    construction 5
    cost 4600
    settlement_min city
    upgrades
    {
    }
    }
    }
    plugins
    {
    }
    }
    building monastery_orthodox
    {
    religion orthodox
    levels monastery_o
    {
    monastery_o requires factions { eastern_european, greek, } and building_present_min_level temple_orthodox church_o
    {
    capability
    {
    happiness_bonus bonus 1
    amplify_religion_level 2
    population_health_bonus bonus 1
    }
    material wooden
    construction 5
    cost 4600
    settlement_min city
    upgrades
    {
    }
    }
    }
    plugins
    {
    }
    }

    it's more realistic to player to decide to destroy or not other religions building, but if church is destroyed i think monastery must be destroyed too! right? no faction count no building present.
    any clue?
