Game mode: [Offline | Singleplayer]
Problem: [Crash | Bug | Performance | Misc]
I built a huge base before the last two patches near the barrow king area near mounds of the dead and where the lion spawns. I had some stuttering issues which I figured would happen. I got an external SSD and everything was fine, but since the last two updates I’ve noticed more freezing and crashes when I enter this base to the point I built a smaller one in a different area. I have reduced the number of thralls in the area, took down 3 tier 3 altars to reduce lighting. There was a small difference, but freezing is still significant. The funny thing is when I approach this base from whatever area, the stuttering and freezing is worse. If I am forced to load the game in the base, stuttering decreases and the freezing won’t happen …for a while at least. Opening my inventory or using a crafting station while in this base makes it worse. Also if I am in admin mode, the freezing and stuttering is guaranteed.
It does not really happen in any other area. I can usually avoid the crash if I enter the base for a few minutes, using the crafting stations is a no no. I only have enough time to grab resources from them.
If the answer is to reduce the base further, then so be it. Just want to make sure it’s not an issue with the updates before I do it. Thanks.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
1.offline PS4 pro with External SSD
2.approach base from outside
3.admin mode and crafting stations worsen issues
4.loading in base is 50/50, sometimes I have to abort the load and try again.
