Game always micro-freezes every time any player or AI shipment arrives

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: V. 100.14.43676.0
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 11

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

The game freezes for a second, every time anyone receives a shipment or ages up (includes player and the AI)
This seems to affect all shipment types and age ups (crates and units but also passive upgrades which don’t seem to spawn in-game elements)

The freeze is global. Whenever any player or AI has their shipment arrive, the game micro-freezes for all players.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Call in a shipment or age up
  2. At the moment the shipment (or age up) completes, the game will freezes for a second and then resumes

Have tried low - high graphics settings. And fps caps between 30-144. No difference

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

This video is using a combination of the following two mods so the shipment arrives instantly.
Game freezes every time the shipment comes through (when its clicked)

The issue can be reproduced without the mods; you’ll just have to wait for shipment to arrive.

Go to Graphics Settings and enable “asset preloading” at the very bottom. That should fix the issue.

Asset preloading is already on.
Didn’t fix the issue. I tried turning it off and it didn’t have any effect on the freezing either

Sounds more like a CPU issue
What’s your system ?

This system is a 5800X3D and 6900XT
I’ve tested it on another system with an older intel + nvidia and there’s no difference

It looks like this in-game (on shipment) (on age up)

try using the cheat code “devasd” instead of the two mods.

Remove and disable all mods.

I use to do this but the game will take so much time to load the match . In multiplayer people will hate me. :smiling_face_with_tear:

Thanks mate, yeah that was lot easier.
I re-tried with cheat code and all mods disabled.

These are the things I’ve tested:

  • Asset preloading On and Off
  • Sound On and Off
  • All UI options disabled
  • Highest and lowest settings Graphics settings
  • Vsync On and Off
  • FPS cap at 30, 60 and 144

The freezing is always consistently there when any shipment is comes through and looks just like the initial video

Does anyone else not experience this?

I noticed it today. You are right, is related with shipments and aging up
