Joining in to this topic, that CTD isn’t limited to the autosave, it also happens to manual saves.
I >>Guess<< it might have to do something with the amount of buildings placed / Items on the scene.
I just finished a production line, that should be able to produce 1 car per 4 seconds when the autosave caused a CTD.
I could load the previous save just fine, did the same changes again, tried a manual save and the manual save also crashed. (unfortunatly, silly me tried to overwrite the manual save >_< )
Played for roughly 90 minutes on this.
Rebuild most of the factory, again crashed & corrupted savegame after roughly 90 minutes.
Added last working savefile as attachment as well (save1), crash occured ~10 minutes later.
(I must admit, I cheated some money in the 2nd one to get to that size again faster)
2nd Edit: I reloaded the save an hour ago, and i could play just fine for more than an hour without any crash.
The crash might have something to do with some timer stuff or maybe an memory-bug - also added the latest savegame as well (save1_new)
(if the attachments become to big, I could delete the older ones)
