Save game hangs indefinitely on Android

#1 2017-10-30 16:11:59
For the past couple versions, I've had the "Save Game" dialog in the lower right corner pop up and never go away. When I go to exit the game, sometimes nothing happens (back doesn't do anything). If I try to manually save, the save animated dialog comes up, but never goes away. Stays stuck on "Compressing Data". I've left it for ~1 hour before and it never finishes. When I restart the app and reload it's an older save than when I left it.

Not sure the exact recipe to create the problem, but I think it has to do with having the building details up (lower left corner) while it is trying to auto-save.. I feel like it's happened during exporting resources as well though.

I'm on Android 8
Build v0.48.0
Google Pixel 2

There was a problem in the past with being connected to facebook and doing cloud sync killing saves. Maybe this is the same problem. Don't know.

I'm not connected to Facebook - just Google Play. I have a pretty large colony (10k clonists) - not sure if that's part of the cause.

Same here. Took forever to save. I force quit it, came back in and it was the old colony, before the last round of building stuff. I also lost like 50k alien artifacts that I mailed to it from a diff colony. Kinda sucks but whatever. It would be nice if it actually saved though. With all the force quits I changed my saves to frequent but I guess that doesn't work either.

Hangs = when you save the game, but it just says saving but never saves.

The game compression requires a bit of RAM. Try turning off save game compression on your statistics screen.
