Bug: Game freezes after a minute or so of gameplay
I’m currently playing Alpha 7 Beta through Steam. The game starts fine, I can load and save a file, but after 1-5 min everything stops except the audio. If I click the screen it turns a transparent white and the window says “(Not Responding).” I’ve never been able to play for more than a few minutes without this happening. The freeze never happens after any particular action, it just starts lagging and eventually freezes, but sometimes it recovers from the lag and freezes later. I have noticed that my CPU usage spikes around 90% right about the time of the freeze, but not always. If I load my save and just do nothing, don’t turn the camera, don’t draw out plots, etc, the game still freezes. I started playing this on Alpha 6 via the Humble Bundle. The same issue occurred, but only after about 30 seconds. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling through the Humble Bundle and Steam. I’ve triple checked my graphics card drivers and they are up to date.
Steps to reproduce:
No steps, I just start playing and the freeze is inevitable.
For this not to happen.
I know there are similar threads to this, but most of them appear to be closed or very old. I just want to make sure this gets seen, because the game looks amazing and I just want to be able to play it. I know crashes and bugs are common in alphas, but right now it’s completely unplayable.
