Game closing on Android

#1 2018-02-21 19:16:13
My game just keeps closing on Android. I only get to play it for a few minutes before it happens. I usually don't have a chance to save it. Is their something I can do to keep it open?

That's why I switched to desktop version, the game kept crashing. I did some testing and found out some of the reasons why it was crashing.

1. Landing pads
You know how in the beginning of the game your landing pad immigrates a colonist and you get a message saying "so-and-so joined the colony"? As it turns out, if that message rolls in too fast, or perhaps multiple at once, my Android version just crashes. Later in the game these colonist messages don't pop up and they don't cause problems.

2. Chain building
Any structure over 1x2 when I chain build them, the game will immediately crash. The only way around it is to put them in manually, but you need to click away to cancel the chain link if you want to put a second of the building on the same row.

3. Too many units
Now of course this can happen on either PC or Android, but too many units trying to build will just crash the game. The best way I have found to fix this is either use less bots (but that's no fun) or you zoom in really close on empty space so your game doesn't have to visually calculate as well. Also increases simulation speed.

Well, hope that helps a bit, those are the crashes and fixes that I have found on Android.
