Game crashing on Xbox one S after 1.5 hours


Recommended Posts

Please use the console section for questions about the console version as it is VERY different from the current PC version.


Personally I have no experience with it, but I heard others say that restarting the game after an hours seems a very good idea, especially since crashing can very easily corrupt your savegame and should be avoided.

I just started playing on a Xbox Series X.

The game has crashed back to the main menu a few times over the last 4 days

Re-starting the game again, all my stuff is still there in inventory and tool belt.

I have not built a base yet and so I don't know if I would have lost my base or not?
This video explains how to delete local saved data and have the game download fresh data from the cloud

I have done this technique for other games in the past and it works great if the game has weird glitches.

Ok, I lost a few items one time on my Series X. I now know how to avoid that.

Normal way to make sure everything gets saved.
I wait until I see the red 7 in the upper right which means the game has saved to disk.
If I quit the game and restart, all is good.

If the game crashes on Xbox
Do not restart the game.
While hovering over the game in the Xbox menu, use the 3 line hamburger menu button
Then go into the manage game and ad ons menu.

Important! - Delete the data from the console only.
Do not delete the data from the cloud.
Restart the game and it will down load your data from the cloud.

So far this has worked great and I have not lost any data

This guy does a good job of explaining how that is done

Here's a little tip I learned from playing the current console version over time. If you're playing with 24 hour cycles set to 60 minutes, exit the game completely, close the app then relaunch the game from a fresh state whenever morning time starts and you hear the morning chime play in-game. Although, if you're playing with 24 hour cycles set to 120 minutes, do the same thing but this time do it when night approaches after you hear the night theme play. With that being said, if you do this about every hour, you will avoid the game from crashing most of the time which can save you a lot of headaches in the long run. Hope this helps.

I play the old console version on Xbox series X. The next gen Xboxes try to save quick launch data.
This game is not set up to be able to quick launch on the Xbox series consoles

Closing the game does not let you start the game from scratch on my Series X like it did on my Xbox One X console

On the Series consoles here's what I have been doing

(1) As was mentioned above, exit the game every hour or so or at the end of a day and then re-start it.

(2) Sometimes the game will jump back to the main menu after attempting to start it
Do not try and start it again or the game may get corrupted or send you back to a previous save point and lost data

I have also had the game crash by using the menu button to pause the game.
Do the same thing as I mentioned above, do not try and re-start the game

Do this first after a crash 
Hit the 3 bar menu button on the controller
Go to Manage Game and Add-ons
Saved Data
Your profile
Delete from console only - Do not delete everywhere!
Restart the game

The game will then download your data from the cloud and you should be fine
