Computer Crashing

I am not sure what is happening, or why, since I can’t find any reports for the game or my system.

As I play, my computer will shut off. I have no reports from the game or my computer indicating what happened. I have tried turning off auto save, which helped a little (i.e. gave me more time), and would save periodically (which also seemed to extend the time before it turned off). It only happens when I am playing, although the time seems to varies.

This has only occurred after the 0.9 update.

I don’t think this has anything to do with this game. When a pc shut down, normaly it is because of to high temperature. Try play a bit with your case open and check if your fans are not ditrty or stopped working.

I have a very temperature efficient computer and case, but I have not been able to grab snap shots of the processor temp (and I am assuming this is what is triggering the shut down). However, it has only ever happened while playing Farthest Frontier. I am not sure why, as there are no logs generated since the program didn’t crash, but I believe it may be using more data processing for some reason, which is what is triggering the spike in heat and thus shutting down my machine.

For context: I am running an AMD Ryzen 7 7700x 8-Core Processor (4.5 GHz) with 128 GB of ram with a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 on a X670E Taichi motherboard.

I have had some success uninstalling the game completely and reinstalling it. However, as soon as I turn off my computer and back on, then play the game again, it will happen eventually.

I really like this game and want to keep playing it, but I am not sure if I can while this issue continues.

So a PC shutting down while running any software is indicative of some kind of system issue.

Could be any number of things, but common ones are RAM or PSU (ex. if the PSU is not sufficiently rated or failing).
