I just downloaded editor V6.0.3 and opened one map did some changes, saved it, closed editor out, had supper then came back to edit another map I was working on but it keeps closing down. I open editor, click on the map I am editing, it loads it but just before it opens it says giants has stopped working and shuts down.
Any ideas as to why.
also I got no ground terrain when it opened, just buildings.
Thanks for the help

I have tried this on 2 different PC's My desktop described above and now my laptop here. Neither will work now and both did before.
This issue goes back to Nov. of 2015.
Don't know if it's a windows issue but desktop was running Win 7 home premium and is now running Win 10, I reloaded the editor on it yesterday (2-14-16) and as stated above it opened right up but 2nd attempt it now won't open a map.
Laptop was running win 2.1 and is now running win 10, Reinstalled editor after a fresh install of win 10 but still won't open any maps.

For what version of game you want to open map?
15 or 13?
If you are opening older map for example map for FS 13 or 11 in editor 6.0.X you will not have a terrain cause other techniques or something.
If you want to export map from FS13 or older you need to import to it new terrain.
But faster is to import all buildings to new map and copy that height maps to new map directory.
For every version of game is newer or older Giants editor i think.
For FS 15 6.0.+
For FS 13 5.0.+
For FS 11 4.0.+
But im not 100% im correct and if this gonna solve your problem.

Pawel , Thanks for the reply. I'm doing it in 2015 6.0.5. I got it working and editing a map but now when I save it I still cant play it. I have watched the tutorials and followed them but can't find one on how to make it usable. I reinstall in in the original game folder after modification, then ZIP it again and place it in the mods but it won't open.
I've done it before in 2013 with great success but for some reason I can't make it work in 2015.
Thanks for your help.
