I've been watching and at is very likely to be because of this. In the grain elevator of the south, apart from the grain, you can sell eggs and wool, in different triggers, both had the option of the great demand activated, but none of the 2 appear in the PDA because I configured it. I modified it, deactivating the great demand and accelerated the time until reaching 25 days of play and does not cause the error.BiggoB wrote: ↑Wed May 29, 2019 7:12 amShabaFS wrote: ↑Wed May 29, 2019 2:45 amCould you tell me what point of sale was the great demand from which you gave that error?ssterling007 wrote: ↑Wed May 29, 2019 2:02 amShabaFS - I had the same thing - corrupt save file - happen to me at about the 13 hour mark. It may have been after a "great demand" in the game. I try and load the game and when I hit the start button it flashes and then remains in the 'loading screen' with no options for the keyboard or controller. I tried other saved games with no problems. Not sure what exactly triggers the corrupt, perhaps it is a great demand action. Similar quirk about the horse dismount as identified by Tylercheesey1986. Has to be done in the stable otherwise the horse it 'stuck' at the location within the pasture. The workaround is not a biggie for me, just an observation.
I think the problem may be due to the fact that there are one or several points of sale that are not detailed in the PDA, but they do accept a great demand. For example, in the Grain Elevator, to the south of the map, there is an egg sale point, which is not detailed in the PDA or in the price panel, but it may be that it accepts high demand and this causes this error to the to leave and not be able to locate it because it is not detailed in it.
happens to me all the time since beta.
looks like the great demands don't stop after few hours.
as soon as i hit three great demands (last night) you save the game, log back in and the loading window doesn't go away. you can hit ESC, unpause , then click on one tractor as example and you can play. yes the game is in pause mode during the start.
the fix i use:
edit the economy.xml -> set isValid="true" to isValid="false"
save, start the game.
i found this fix here in the forum somewhere.
<greatDemand itemId="10" fillTypeName="COTTON" demandMultiplier="1.300000" demandStartDay="17" demandStartHour="13" demandDuration="18" isRunning="true" isValid="true"/>
<greatDemand itemId="322" fillTypeName="EGG" demandMultiplier="1.200000" demandStartDay="17" demandStartHour="16" demandDuration="9" isRunning="true" isValid="true"/>
<greatDemand itemId="105" fillTypeName="CANOLA" demandMultiplier="1.400000" demandStartDay="17" demandStartHour="14" demandDuration="7" isRunning="true" isValid="true"/>
since you mentioned eggs.... eveytime it get stuck eggs are on great demand that's right. but this time i've got it on the supermarket. all three where on sports marked on the pda so no hidden sellpoints like before in beta
Now I am testing the other modifications of the map and the arrangement of some errors and bugs. If nothing strange happens, on Friday I will send it to the tests, being version 188.8.131.52
