Linking here since it may be a bug. Dev input greatly appreciated.

Another question, which might explain things: how do I generate a .DAT file for a given scenario? I would have sworn the first time you saved it it would automatically show up in the Campaign folder, but I just noticed my scenario doesn't have said file.

Thanks for the report and I'll fix this for the next update.

For DAT files, I believe it is only generated once you launch the campaign in the game EXE, not when you open or close it via the Editor.

Appreciate it Hubert you da man. I knew I wasn't losing my mind (maybe)...

I did run into another issue. At first I thought this error message was because I had deleted a bunch of weather zones from world regions that aren't part of my map, but then I tried re-importing the original vanilla files [General-Weather Zones], saving, then reloading, and got the error message again:

None of these were deleted.

That last error is a result of my importing a weather zone list on top of the already-existing one, apparently.

But it did inspire me to find a workaround-I can rename a zone in said file in Notepad, avoiding the new zone bug. [no error message either weirdly]
