I had the same mole rat problem in vault
88 a while back. It turned out to be a corrupt piece of loot on one of the mole rats. I had to roll back to a save game before I "discovered" vault 88.

I don't think your issue is a Conqueror issue but rather a bad cell or bad loot on the mobs.

I started a fresh playthrough & haven't had any freezes on exit this time.
I removed some settlements from the build list as graygarden & sunshine didn't get built, when I fast traveled to other settlements I found vanilla enemies at some, so decided to remove them from the build list.

Based on this idea, started a new game and removed Jamaica Plain, Zimonja, Sunshine Tidings, Taffington, and Egret Tours Marina. No hang on exit.

Edit: Spoke too soon. Played a few more hours and hung on exit again.

Jamaica plain : got a CTD every time I fast traveled there, but had time to hear the ghouls attacking the settlers : Removed
Murk water several CTD's Removed
Zimoja : Vanilla raiders still there ; Removed
Kingsport : Vanilla children of atom still there : Removed
Coastal : Mirelurks still there, settlers killed the raider Removed
Removed all the non commonwealth locations
Slog removed : as I intend to do my own build
Taffington : Vanilla bugs still there : settlers were able to deal with them
no settlements added from the de active list
Egret owned Phillis killed by settlers.

How are you removing the settlement plan? Through the holotape or just starting over? I'm deep into the game with my current campaign & would rather not have to start over. Getting CTD at County Crossing and Starlight Drive-in, both having built-up settlements.

unfortunately you have to start a fresh playthrough, don't know of anyway to remove them after that.

I did Covenant, workbench was unlocked & most items were take able, shopped with Penny to get Justice, went to the compound without permission, all Guards were friendly even when being shot killed all except Amelia, went back to Covenant, NPC's hostile as they should be killed all, workshop in search mode not open, items were now in steal able mode.
This is not caused by Conqueror, just did a playthrough without Conqueror installed exactly the same happens, only thing I can think of is the latest simsettlements update could be causing it, I was intending to install Conqueror after doing the quests that seemed to causing me problems, unfortunately although the mod installs & activates you no longer get the menu options list & no settlements start to build

The game crashing on exit save, generally means there is so much stuff in memory that the game can't correctly make a save.

This was likely caused by the bug I fixed with the 4.0.0a hotfix for SS on Friday night (not the Conqueror hotfix, but one for SS/Three-In-One).

If anyone continues to receive this after installing that hotfix, please let me know.

Back to the original problem.. game freeze on exit. Just tried console command 'qqq' to quit to desktop (no save, no menu) and it froze. Waited for 30 minutes before ctl-alt-del and signing out. This is with with version 4.0.0a of SS3in1 and SS:C.

Same as above, fully updated, SS3in1 and SS:C and freezing on exit. Not a major deal for me right now, and going to restart to see if I can get some memory back by running with less settlements built up.

I managed to solve this by just waiting for a an hour or so real time in an interior.

I was getting a constant freeze when trying to exit the game but after waiting, everything seemed to improve.

(This was also after 3 or so hours of gameplay, so I'd given it a while but I guess not enough just left alone in an interior cell)

I don't have "start me up" or any of those mods. My load order is stable without conqueror, but adding conqueror to the mix always locks up the game if I try to save, even hours after the progress bar said it was completed. Like others mentioned: I can quick save, or console save while playing just fine. It's always a perma freeze on game exit, however.

I have "Start Me Up" but I don't think that's a problem as I've found on the last couple of starts that I've tried that after about 20 hours or so of game play the 'freeze on exit' stops happening. I haven't paid much attention to which quests I've completed when exiting the game starts working again.

Yes having the save exit problem too. I always save before exiting. But each time is hangs, when it get to the load screen, can only fix by task manager or restarting.

Having the same problem: Game freezes when exiting, has to be killed in task manager. This is happening in a savegame that started with 4.0.1.

Not that the exit savegame gets created correctly, so it does not seem to be caused by creating the exit save.

I'm having this problem - I just tried Conqueror for the first time today, and had a few little start-up issues that had me needing to close the game a few times to research and make adjustments. I'm getting a complete freeze on exit to desktop, sometimes for so long that I have to use task manager or a restart. This didn't happen when I was playing around with only Sim Settlements, IR and RotC.

Figured I'd mention this here. If I quit to the MainMenu the game will go there. But If I try to quit from the MainMenu, the game also freezes. I find this odd, because isnt the world unloaded by that point?

Damn with the new playthrough now I'm getting freezes when I kill molerats, not happened in the open just underground
Had to give up in the molerat den under red rocket, now getting them in vault 81:bad:bad
found the mod causing the problem https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/17159 experience boost, only used it to get to 100. it was the only one I found that could be stopped without having to de-activate it in mod menu by removing the ring. it was also causing one of the houses in sanctuary to appear to be outside the city limit so could not use workbench in there.

Same issue here. The only difference being that the freeze only happens once I take my first settlement (for me that's Sanctuary). I do have Sanctuary removed from the settlement pre-build list. There are only 2 settlers to deal with during the raid.

Any attempt after that point to Save/Exit to Desktop results in the game freezing. I have let the game even run several hours in the hopes it might sort itself out, but with no luck.

This began after I started running Conqueror (pre-Ophelia and now post-Ophelia).
