Community Toolbar limits & crashes
« on: November 19, 2019, 11:39:01 AM »
For the newbie and other interested parties.
This is not a guide, only an awareness of a crash that can occur.
To those whom like brevity; c=i<30.

  Now the long version, somewhere in dreamland...
You all know about my famous cookie mods. well of course, don't you? You know, that great iconic cookie with the bite in it.
Not to be confused with the Cookie Records Llc ico. Now you got it!

Lets say you downloaded all my fabulous mods, ooh.. I know you did, and you loaded them all up. Lets play!
Great, now click the Community Toolbar you'll see my beautiful modder icon. Go ahead click on it, good.
You should notice two icons, a house and a barn. Click on the barn there should be 4 barns, I know not very many, but wait.
Click the house icon and Wow.. 30 cookie houses.. 30 icons in a row, Delish.
Ok, ok.. I got a new mod with a wondrous yummy cookie house go try it out! Wait.. what, it crashed when clicking the house icon?

  That's right folks, get to many ducks in a row they'll quack out.

However, if you have CC or MM loaded the crash will not occur.
As to why, I'll leave that to the real modders to answer, ponder or ignore.

Conclusion, first its not the modders fault its just a limitation.
Lastly choose wisely. We cant always have our cookie and eat it too.


Your humble surf,
CookieBarrel

Ps
If I got it wrong please advise.
This crash is repeatable
Crash can occur at game load, starting new map or at an icon selection.

Pss
@modderator, not sure if this was the correct place. Move at your discretion.
tks

I post it a little everywhere.
A small mod that fixes the too long toolbar.
Just add it to your setup and it will take care of ducks too. :)

Modders can't be held responsible for how many mods are loaded.
My 'Themed' button easily crashes out if you load too many.

I can start adding this toolbar fix to all my mods...  :-\

Toolbar fix! That's a good cookie, yum.

My intention was to alert other that this crash could happen not to blame or hold modders accountable.
Spent some time searching this site for a crash report found nothing substantial. hopefully this post might help future searches.
However I did find a golden nugget of a thread by necora. Good stuff.

Please don't! It's easier for us end users to download the Toolbar Fix.

Anyways, I'm guilty ;D Wanted to familiarize myself with your mods and yes loaded them all.  :-[
Since I was experience with your mods I knew that wasn't the problem just a systematic step by step to find the cause.
Searching is not my forte but through it all nothing was harder than deciding which of your mods I'd have to leave behind!

Thank you for your mods, the Toolbar Fix (I can have my cookie an eat too) mod and most of all your time and understanding.
