[Fixed 1.06][Bug 1.05] Stability / crashes


#1

I just want to point out that the #1 issue that’s preventing me from playing the game at the moment is stability ( regular crashes ). I’ve never been able to advance to the mid/end-game, as each of my play test session usually lasts no more than 5 to 10 mins ( if lucky ). That and save games corruption( but that was improved, didn’t get any in 1.05 yet ).

I’m wondering if I’m an isolated case or if other players also have regular crashes like that ? I’ve seen some players with some pretty complex factories ( much more than mine; I haven’t even unlocked half of the research tree, I don’t have power plants or all station parts upgrades etc… ), how were you able to build those with the game constantly crashing ? Do you not get crashes, or are you simply reloading every time ?


#2

I’ve only had one crash, which was reproducible and nothing to do with the actual gameplay loop.

For the rest, I’ve been playing close to 8 hours without any problems.


#3

That definitely sounds unusual. Do you get error messages? does the game freeze or actually crash back to the desktop. Is there anything unusual or low-spec about your hardware?
The game saves error logs to \my documents\my games\production line\debug, if that helps?


#4

The game crashes to desktop. I don’t think it’s related to a particular user interface event ( I was not clicking or doing an action IIRC ), just a random crash when scrolling / looking around.

No, my computer is high-end ( i7 6700K, 32 GB ram, SSD 1.5 GB/s, GTX 1070, Win 10 64 bits ).

As for errors in the log, this is the latest one ( all dated yesterday when I had the last crash, haven’t played since then ):

#5

Just tried again and got a crash after just a minute. I had erased the log files. This did not generate an errors log.

This time the crash happened when I click the “Extra Robots I” button in Choose Upgrades for a Fit Accessories station. I tried to load the game a second time and it happened again, so it seems to happen all the time.

#6

Just a FYI, but 1.06 seems a lot more stable than the previous versions. For the first time I was able to play for an extended amount of time w/o experiencing any major issue.
