Which problem are we on now? I've kinda sorta lost track. The problem never changed, simply the possible solutions we've been talking about have changed.... Blender crashes as soon as a "smoke domain" is created. and its only the Smoke domain, the fluid system works just fine which is confusing me ...

bpy is a built-in module.
