I am currently out at the moment and wanted to share some of the generalised issues that i have found on console that have either cropped up recently , or even been there for a year at least since i have been playing it.
I play primarily on multiplayer with my niece and we really enjoy thr egame however we had a 6-12 month break because it was unplayable. We recently revisited the game hoping it was playable but it isnt.
Sections of building unsnap and move out of line with the rest of the building after saving / crashing and reloading.
shelves would sink through the floor or a foundation, or slide through the walls and poke out after a reload. Sometimes also desyncing and would also fall through the bottom on the other player’s screen.
Very often we will not be able to interact with anything with an inventory including your own, forcing a reload
regardless if everything is in crates / piles or not , the more islands you visit, and the more you build on one island, the higher chances of crashing and super low frame rates.
in one instance, i removed a rudder to be replaced with a motor but it wouldnt allow me to place it. I could place it on other tiles but not on the original, almost like the original rudder existed but it doesnt, even after reload.
I can provide it when i am back from work.
No settings are changed, nor are there any custom islands.
Unfortunately i only know that the interactions with inventories being blocked can alot of the time happen when emptying a pile but are not exlusive to it and can happen seeming randomly.
Many of the issues with buildings, or placeables slide, moving, slipping , and falling through other objects seem mostly to happen after a reload. However the desyncing of placeables can happen at runtime when playing. It does seem to get worse , there more that has been explored, and the more that is built.
Sometimes to just get the save to load without crashing we have to reload the game or console multiple times.
Clearing the cache also doesnt work, we have also started a new save on my niece’s console and that worked until it didnt.
All methods of rebooting have been used but ha s not fixed the problem. World seed does not aeem to bave an impact either.
if there is any additional info needed please let me know and i will try and get it for you as soon as i can.
