Building a tower with 10+ stories crashes game

Summary: I tried to build a 4*4 sized tower with around 10 stories to see how high we could possibly build. Using the building editor let me put multiple stories without any hassle. Upon clicking “Build” it gets unresponsive. Possible memory leak. Could move the camera a bit, but world simulation stopped, then camera freaked out and nothing responded any more. No ingame engine bug report.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Build a tower 10 stories or more high in the editor.
  2. Click “Build”.
  3. Game crashes.

Expected Results: The tower being built.

Actual Results: Slowing the whole computer down. Needed to manually exit Stonehearth through Task Manager.

Notes: Kinda expected, but well. :wink:

Attachments: None. Couldn’t save.

Version Number and Mods in use: Latest public Alpha 14 release.

System Information: Core i5 3470, 8 GB RAM, GTX 970, Win 7 64 Bit


Thanks for the report!
Seems as if you don’t have a save – any chance you have the template for this building?

very very tall tower (253.0 KB)

Hi, thanks for looking into it. Here’s a template.
Edit: Not sure about the exact height that causes this. The template is 20 stories.
