So no matter what I've tried the game will always crash with or without mods . As soon as contact is made with Oak of ages, I believe it's Wydrioth that's the issue . Now whats even more concerning is that this issue was brought to light in 2017 ? 2017 ..they have known about it since then its time to get it fixed guys, C'mon ...I love Total war and have never had a complaint until now . Fantastic products. But this crash is starting to get annoying after playing for 30 + hours just to have a crash and be dead in water after that. Please fix it!
