The Cloth Map Only option is bugged in that the game sometimes reverts back to showing the terrain when leaving the options screen.

 

To Reproduce:

1) Zoom out to Cloth Map

2) Hit ESC and check the "Cloth Map Only" checkbox under the "Gameplay" Tab

3) Click "Back to Game" button

4) Notice that game stays in cloth map when zooming in - fine up until now

5) Hit ESC again

6) Click "Back to Game" button again

7) Notice that game is stuck now in terrain only pseudo mode - ie bugged

8) Hit ESC for a third time

9) Uncheck "Cloth Map Only" checkbox

10) Click "Back to Game" button for third time

11) Zoom in until cities and units visible and then zoom back out to Cloth Map

Now we are back at step 1) again.  Repeat Ad Nauseum.

This bug has been around for a while and has been reported before.  It seems to be tied to the use of the ESC key to leave the options screen.

It happens to me clicking through to the main menu from the UI.  No ESC key involved.

Hell, just zoom out until you get to the cloth map from the 3D one. Click on the menu and save. Go back to the clo... er.. 3D map. Without stuff.

 

And clouds.

 

 

Lots of clouds.

This is still an issue in 1.09o. Is there any reason this hasn't been included in the list of known issues in the change logs?

I was left with a very sour taste in my mouth after the distance maintained between the developers of Civ V, and the poor communication in response to the game's many bugs and design issues. Your openness and responsiveness here is refreshing. More than that, it's priceless.

Unfortunately there still seems to be a related bug. Even if Cloth Map only mode isn't enabled, if you zoom out so that the cloth map appears, then open the Options menu, then return to the game, the pseudo-terrain view appears (instead of the cloth map), just as it did with the cloth map only bug.

I suspect both bugs would be squished by storing the view state when the Options menu is opened, then restore that state when the player returns to the game.

The changes I made only affected if you had the  "cloth map mode" option on.  From the reports I saw before, that seemed to be the only time it happened.  I'll take another look at it using mlapierre's repro steps.

The issue has been resolved.  I've just gone back and forth from the menu in regular mode, and cloth-map only mode.  I'll pass it along to QA and it should be in the next update.

Thank you for reporting it and providing helpful steps to reproduce it.
