Placement of wall at the western border in Storskogen causes permanent savegame corruption

Platform:
PC

Description:
If you place any wall at the very edge of the western base zone in Storskogen, the game crashes and causes the savegame to be permanently corrupted (game crashes immediately upon start afterwards). Only solution is to restore a savegame from manual backup.

Steps To Reproduce:
Place any wall at the very edge of the western base zone in Storskogen. Now the crash can be triggered in 2 ways: Either by deconstructing the wall, or by exiting to main menu. Both actions result in the game crashing, and savegame corruption, and the game is unable to start again unless savegame is restored manually.

Host or Client:
Host - single player.

WARNING: DO not try to reproduce, unless you have manually backed up your savegame first. :sunglasses:

Can we please get an acknowledgement of this serious bug, that is apparently permanently corrupting the savegame for a number of people (see link list in metadata above)? Thanks :sunglasses:

This seem like a major issue, anything that directly corrupts save data like this should be made priority and fixed in a quick patch, not a content update several months after its found out.

I’ve tried reporting this on Discord as well… I really feel the team has been lacking in the acknowledgement and communication about this particular issue. :disappointed_relieved:

Unfortunately the most you’ll probably get is a single sentence from a mod or admin like: “We are looking into it.” And receive no further info as to when it or if it is actually being fixed.

This happened to me I had to delete all my data and start again I did report it but no response

Sorry to hear that dude - I learned the hard way to always have a backup of a good savegame. :grimacing::sunglasses:

If i don’t manually backed up my savegame, my progress is permanently lost?

Why developers don’t look at this bug reports? This is very serious. If they want to make the best game, they must read this and try to fix it quickly. Every update comes with a big bug that destroys the game!

I think the game was better, but developers are just haiting their job!

I don’t think they’ve had the time. From what I’ve been told they’re very busy. Hopefully nobody’s crunching… I can try to poke someone about this issue, see if it’s been noticed internally.

Thanks Zesiir - that would be much appreciated. I feel the players have been a bit abandoned here, since it’s been over a month since I reported the issue.

I also reckon it’s probably also limited what you can do, but apparently this is quite serious and affecting a lot of people - so any effort to bring it to attention will help.

Cheers! :sunglasses:

Unfortunately I don’t think it will be fixed with this week’s update considering they only just now found this thread.

No, I don’t think so either. So much more reason to be aware of this issue until a fix is found.
