Single Player buildings not processing?

Game mode: [Singleplayer]
Problem: [Bug | Performance]
Region: [US]

It seems like timed events don’t happen in single player if you aren’t physically near the building. Big one is definitely wheels of pain, crafting seems to be affected too. Haven’t done a huge amount of testing but it seems to be pretty consistent, though exiting the game might have some factor in it too

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Load up single player
  2. Put some new best friends in a wheel of pain, queue up a couple of hundred of iron/steel reinforcements at a blacksmith, or fill up a smelter
  3. Hit go on the station
  4. Walk away and go adventuring for a few hours
  5. Return home to find that thrall conversion hasn’t progressed at all and crafting queues look like they’ve just started
