(Rome mode) civilizations.json crashes game with trivial modification?

Any trivial change to civilizations.json leads to game crash on clicking “skirmish”.
For example, changing hud_style of any civilization can cause crash.
Does anyone has some insight into this?

I noticed that too. What could be the issue?

Yes, facing the same issue here.

Thank you for reporting, however this is by design. The file must be included in a data mod.
If you have made any changes to non-modifiable files, you can use “Verify Game Cache” to undo them.
We will look into making this clearer to people who attempt similar edits in the future.
