I have an issue with my colony seemingly saving successfully, yet the state of the colony always reverts to an earlier save point, no matter what changes I made in the colony.
I play in PC browser (Firefox), single map colony, cloud save never enabled, online game.
Chronologically the issue happens as follows :
- Last successful login : Thursday 2 January (right before the major downtime issue).
- On Friday 3 January, was able log in into my Ape account via browser, but whenever I tried to load the save the following message appears :
"Unable to connect to the My Colony Server. Games in online mode require an Internet connection to play. There was an error parsing server login response. Please try again." After a few tries, I did not pursue it further for fear of corruption.
- On Monday 6 January, was able to finally load the game. Played a few hours, made some changes, saved, and exited. A few hours came back to load the game, save reverted back to the Thursday 2 January save, and all colony changes made earlier today was as if they never happened. OK, tried making smaller changes, let the game idle for an hour or so, saved successfully, and exited. Loaded the game back, all changes wiped.
- Tried in total of 5 trials to load the game and make changes, with the same end result even after idling the game for some time and saving. In essence, the game would not save any further changes and always reverted to the 2 January save.
Is there a way to solve this issue and save my colony? Thank you beforehand.
