I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the native client and the ape apps launcher and it didn't fix the issue, I might try again with the new versions though.
As for the chrome performance, yeah its mostly about the one in my signature. I do have multithread pathfinding on, but the issue is that most of the end game buildings require drones to build and you need a lot of them in order to get it done at any sort of reasonable pace. Thats why turbo drones were introduced, but even with them you still need a fair few to build stuff like the investment bank fast. I can guarantee you that everyone who uses turbo drones has run into the problem of the game lagging or outright crashing.
However this time was different, suddenly it took many hours longer than previous times to build stuff using them to the point where it made it unplayable due to time constraints. I just don't have enough time in the day to wait with the game open for 6 hours to build 20 buildings that took less than 5 minutes beforehand.
I'm hoping that regions fix this issue a small bit but I have a hunch its a different problem.

In Chrome on your laggy colony, can you open up the Dev tools, go to the performance tab, record a performance profile (only needs to be about 30 seconds long) , then go to the Bottom-Up tab, and post a screenshot of what the result is? It will show how much RAM the game is using and which JS functions are taking up the most processing time.

@bastecklein Ok, here is the picture of what the tool says.


This happens whenever I use drones to build, specifically turbo drones. The game does lag on my 1.6m population base simply due to the sheer size of it, but even my smaller colonies outright crash when I use turbo drones. It's almost as if the game is trying to pathfind 40 construction drones instead of a single turbo drone.

Thank you for this.

Do you play and/or have the same issues on Antiquitas? I have made some pathfinding changes as of Antiquitas v1.17.0 that will be coming to the next My Colony update.

Also, the next updates to both the Ape Apps Launcher and My Colony will now be writing an error log to the My Documents folder.

I did play antiquitas for a while, but I don't think my game was anywhere near advanced to even be lagging at all. Still, any pathfinding changes sound like they are helpful when it's gotten to this point. 1 frame in around 45 seconds is a little extreme lol.

Good to know that an error log will be coming to the ape apps launcher soon as well, maybe then I can get you the necessary information on the issue I've been having with it. I hope it all goes well. Will be looking forward to future updates :)

Short of someone offering an entire hard drive image for the developper to have a bug to observe (please specify which browser you use when attempting to play) the developer will have no idea how to test where the bug comes from and will keep thinking all people with the bug may be using some ad-blocker or other addons that don't like my colony or somesuch --- and thus never fix the problem.

@bastecklein am having the same problem in steam version, and the problem still persists for wubman. as for chrome, as soon as i enter the game, it freezes. but i would focus on my steam version first. please do look into it

@Invincible do you have an error log file saved in your Documents/My Colony folder that might shed light on the issue? The Steam version should create an error log

@bastecklein
the last error log was on 3rd December named `my-colony-v0.76.0-error` which stated
```v0.76.0 1543861400235 utils.js: 409 Uncaught The "path" argument must be one of type string, Buffer, or URL. Received type undefined```

however i found one more file under C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\My colony named 'debug' which was modified on 16th december which said

one of the members suggested to manually delete the stuff in app data, the My colony folder in both local and roaming folders in it. it started working but i lost most of my progress in my zolarg region, as i had to go back to a previous backup.. but atleast the game has started working!
