How did you do it? I deleted the two Hornburg files (settlements/unique settlements/), but still it crashed when i tried to battle on it. Is there some magic trick to it?

I'm uploading my working version for someone else, so when that's done you could possibly try downloading that and seeing if it works for you?
Can also upload the folders I removed so you can see if they're the same ones you took out?
PS Did you quit the mod and reload it after making the change? Only other thing I can really think of that might have stopped it working.
Oh thank you very much! Yes i quit the mod and restarted it. It is worth noting that when it crashed it said "error 361" (or something cant remember the numbers), while before it would just crash without any pop ups. So there has been a development, and the crash is different.
My upload for the custom settlement folders I removed is finished now, so I guess it's worth double checking to make sure you took out the same ones as me, although it sounds like you did.
Maybe if instead of deleting this time you just drag them over to a folder on your desktop and see if that makes a difference. Not sure why it would, but that's the only thing I can think of that you might have done differently to me apart from that I took out all the folders for settlements I thought were potentially broken, rather than just a couple.
Anyway, what I did for Hornburg was delete everything in settlements/Unique_Settlements/Hornburg (that's seven files beginning with 'hornburg_a.' and a folder called 'maps'), but not in Unique_Settlements/Hornburg_Ambient. I also left the empty folder there.
I was chatting to him in private message and we solved the problem.
Deleting the unique settlement sub-folders was causing him an error 361 when he loaded the battle maps, but when he moved them to a separate folder on his desktop it started working.
okay so, for about 1 month i have been trying to get third age total war on my mac. i am using wine and steam. But when i use the exe files all i get are these files: data, icons,preferences, TATW_3_0_unit_stats.xls, TATW.cfg and TATW.bat, Note: i do have file in the data folder and preferences. I think i am missing some files please help i would really like to play this game!
No, all of that seems right. Now when you start Medieval TW2, in the launcher, you have to click the "Advanced" tab, and tick of "Advanced options", there in the text field on the right, write "--features.mod=mods/Third_Age_3" (or the name of whatever other mod folder you want to play) You should read page 4,5 and 6 of this thread, because custom settlements like Minas Tirith and Helms deep do not work on mac, so you have to replace them with normal MTW2 settlements.
Feral Interactive has said they are working on fixing the custom settlement bug.
http://mab.to/tbXcS2Ayd (I've removed the broken custom settlements and fixed the axe thrower crash).
To get the mod working just follow these steps:
1. Go to steam
2. Right click (ctrl + click) medieval 2 and go to properties
3. In properties, go to the local files tab and click browse local files
4. Enter the 'Medieval2Data' folder
5. Place your 'third_age_3' folder into the 'mods' folder
6. Launch Medieval 2 and go to the 'advanced' tab
7. Tick 'advanced options' and type '--features.mod=mods/third_age_3'
8. Click play
