One time you might crash after 2 - 9 minutes with the Car Crews error.
Another time it's impossible to crash no matter how much or what you do. Also i'd like to know if the shutdown still works for the mod or if it's disabled for now.
In previous version you could press F9 and the action stopped, no regeneration and no thugs / car crews spawning.
Now if i try to press F9 : The War is Ending but Car Crews still spawn and Thugs still spawn to chop down everything in sight. The regeneration is disabled and the random chaos still occurs
This is everything under Graphics set to 1 and minimum as possible, 100ms throttle for both Player and Thug alike. If it's CPU related why my PC is tripping all over itself i'll have to move onto a i7 or high end Quad Extreme. Or set the throttle in the 5000 range
Yes it's possible to still see this particular crash occasionally. I am looking into it.
The clean-up code is broken and so is the toggle off. These are side effects of the changes I've been making to the crew and thug code. I'll add them to the known issues.
You should not need more than 100ms throttle. In fact I believe the default of 50ms should be perfect for just about any class of machine. It's simply giving the game slices of time back after the script does heavy work so it's scattered throughout the code strategically to prevent the script from taking control and leaving a game that is jerky and crappy.
