Heya Soviet Samuelson, does this crash every time any tech is snap shotted or does this crash with the specific tech you have?

Snap shots seem to save fine on this side.

Can you send me a save file to take a look at please?

well, i cant, because it was an unsaved RnD thing. I just snapshot the tech and it crashed immediately, so i assumed it would happen with every tech

Thanks for the info

We've had a player OpalMonkey comment to us on steam that Avast antivirus is blocking access to the path location for our saves, which is possibly causing the crash.

After doing some testing (removing old snapshots, cache, etc.) I realized I didn't know where the saves were anymore. Turns out that since the saves have been moved to the "Documents/My Games/TerraTech" folder it seems that my AntiVirus's (Avast) RansomWare shield was blocking TerraTech from creating images. Though the save games didn't seem to be blocked.

I say "seems" because I haven't 100% confirmed it. After adding an exception to the RansomWare shield things are working fine. So hopefully that was it.
Can you check if you have any antivirus that is blocking TerraTech from accessing the saves folder?

Im not sure if avast is active, but it doesnt call terratech a threat when i take a snapshot

Not 100% familiar with avast myself, but can you try allowing TerraTech through the 'Ransom Ware' shield as an exception anyways and then see if it crashes when taking a snap shot?

I know at least one anti virus that blocks access to files without any notifications.

Cheers!
