Aiming at the tile the character is on causes game to crash


Build: 8255 (experimental)

After the ability to pre-aim at a spot was added if you aim at the tile the character is on and wait till your steadiness is full the game will crash.

Steps :

  1. Build a world give yourself a ranged weapon and ammo. And reload the weapon.
  2. Aim at the tile the character is on.
  3. Press ‘5’ (default key for waiting/aiming) till your steadiness is full.
  4. Press ‘5’ one more time.

After that the game will start using CPU like crazy and stop working.
**FYI:**Every time i did this my computer didn’t like it at all, I needed to manually restart my PC because it froze. It is possible to avoid this if you are quick and close cataclysm fast enough.


Dude, you’re just killing your computer and resurrecting it.


I think this happens with throwing too, I cant throw grenades without crashing.


Build: #8264 (experimental) solved the crash or at least it doesn’t happen in #8266.


I am playing #8266 build and have an even bigger problem. Whenever I press “f” to shoot a gun or thrash a spear or aim a mounted turret manually, the game crash. This never happened before and I don’t install any new mods.
Any clue ? Because I can’t play the game like this, melee only is too boring


For those who still encounter the crash after the update, you would need to amend your savefile manually:

  1. Open your .sav file and search for “last_target_pos”
  2. Your save file probably has "last_target_pos": [ -2147483648, -2147483648, -2147483648 ]
  3. Change that to "last_target_pos": null
  4. Save and done.
