I just started Automation as I usually do in the morning and then let it load in the background. Today, it decided to crash while literally just idling in the main menu in the background.
Also, as the game was idling my computer fans were on full blast as if the game was loading something heavy-duty. I have the game running in the background as I write this and the fans are still on jet engine mode. No clue why a game running in the background doing literally nothing but rendering a few UI buttons and an environment with a spinning camera would be using almost a gig of ram, but it’s most likely a problem on Epic’s end.
I reported the BugSplat as usual and restarted twice, but all my cars and engines had disappeared. Nothing in either screens (car or engine designer), not even any greyed out items, so hopefully it didn’t corrupt anything. I have tried multiple game restarts and verified game cache (3 files were missing and then replaced), neither have fixed it.
