Lua was making the game impossible to play and I figured out what was triggering it to do so.
I was building a house that also had an “patio”. The patio was the problem. My hearthlings decided they no longer wanted to build, which is okay I’ve related it to the freestanding floor blocks that I had placed for the 2nd patio over the water.
So I deleted ALL the floors on the outside of the house. Sure enough, this is what triggered Lua to go into overdrive.
