BUG: Adding Earth to a Simulation crashes US2
« on: May 05, 2015, 06:42:25 AM »
So this has been happening to me since A10 (maybe even earlier) and it's pretty annoying. Dragging an Earth from the menu into an empty or populated system triggers the Colorful Spinning Beachball of Death (that's BSoD for Mac users), notifying the unresponsiveness of US2.

P.S. I used the guide for locating log files, but I'm not sure I uploaded the right thing.

UPDATE: Literally actively using the program for more than 20 seconds may crash it. My copy of US2 is so useless that I can't even use the Report Bug feature.

Macs are fun.

Strange. I am also on a Mac but do not have that issue with Alpha 14.1.

You can find your log file in this folder: ~/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log

If Library is hidden in Finder, open a Finder window, click Go -> Go to Folder... -> ~/Library/Logs/Unity/

"Go" should be in the menu bar along with File, Edit, etc. when you have Finder open.

Or you can press command+shift+G in Finder.

I've reverted back to many Alphas for stability, and Alpha 7 seems to work best so far. However, US2 still crashes after some significant usage time.

I'm using 13.1, since Steam strangely doesn't seem to know that A14 exists.

The game seems to be more stable, but just firing an Earth crashes the game. Heck, I attempted selecting Mars and I got the Rainbow Beachball of Death.

A14.1a seems to have fixed the Earth Crash specifically, but stability is still extremely low has gotten even worse.
