So there you are, fresh into R&D, ready to spawn in your freshest tech to upload to the Steam Workshop or whatever, so you end up looking like this. You place down the tech, and before it's finished completely existinging,™ you press the ` key(or the local equivalent) to enter the tech manager, which is the best way to take screenshots. Or you just spawned it in by accident, whatever.
What happens? Your game instantly presents you with a crash screen.
