Fixed Oberland Station hard crash to desktop, no workaround found.

Hi !
I started a new run in Fallout 4 , quite heavily modded, although i tried to make sure the other mods weren't incompatible with sim settlements.

As stated in the title, i have an hard crash when i try to approach/fast travel to Oberland Station. Based on older threads i read, i tried the remote self destruct, but the settlement is not detected, does not appear in pipboy, and if i try to go closer game crashes before it does, doesn't matter on the side i approach the settlement.

i already had a few crashes, sometimes on other settlements, sanctuary mostly, but rebuilding, setting the configuration wizard to low perfomance (though i play in ultra), seemed to do the trick, but not this time.

I use Sim Settlements 3in1, recently updated to 4.0.8, CBBE, AWCKR, Armorsmith, True Storms, Vis-G, DEF_UI, Full dialogue, and many other supposedly small mods.

So my idea would be to totally reset the cells oberland is on, but i don't know if it's doable, or if i should do it without messing my save anyway. :)
Thanks for the help if you have any idea, or i'm gonna treat Oberland as a new nuked zone for the rest of the playthrough. :D

A lot of people seem to be have CTDs with 4.0.8, including me. I rolled back to an earlier version of SS and it solved the CTD issues.

Yep, i rolled back to 4.0.7a, and that did the trick! thanks !
btw, i was using the rotc settlement too for oberland (didn't install other city plans)
should this be moved to bug? or already a known problem? i tag my question as solved for now.

Yeah same for me, can not get any where near it, have been trying to remote demo with no luck, and its just the city plan that comes with RotC.

i;ve been messing with this for a week and i cannot find anything. i've run fallrim tools on saves, and rejigged my load order, i have traced fallout4.exe with process monitor and there is nothing out of the ordinary that i can see.

all i can say is that the issue is with 4.0.8 of sim settlements 3-in-1.

i have conqueror installed but have never played it in this game, so jammer has never existed in this play through. i wondered if that could be the issue - because i installed conqueror into an existing game, but never started over - is there any kind of problem there, but 4.0.8 conqueror seems stable with 4.0.7a sim settlements.

the second i reapply 4.0.8 of simsettlements i get instant ctd - there is no opportunity to do anything - and - weirdly - i get a ctd in red rocket which i have never used - it remains an empty, unused settlement (TOD issues), and cannot even be entered in 4.0.8 but in 4.0.7a - works as normal.

i cannot do any more research into this because there is literally no audit trail of a problem and i do not know enough about game internals to offer any more than this.

all i am doing now is keeping 4.0.7a installed in my game as that works. 4.0.8 is not good for the health of my game.

I have to concur with all the above. I have the minimalist load order just to pre-build Conqueror settlements. I just released V2.0 without Far Harbor, Starlight, Jamaica Plains, and Bunker Hill.

Will have to add Oberland to this as well.

With my minimalist load order, I went in game to do an upcoming release of scenarios. I approach Oberland from the west, from the dam. As soon as I get half way across first bridge, the hud flickers for settler needs. Then I get a message about city manager doing performance options. about 15 seconds after that last message and I am sitting there waiting, it CTD's.

I have attempted to change the performance options to LOW before getting to the dam at all... cross... 1/2 way wait... start going … CTD.

Sorry, @kinggath but something is amiss with 4.08. Something is happening at Oberland that in which it goes to apply settings... 15 seconds, CTD.

Or there is a bug a boo within the Oberland City plans.... and to be honest, I haven't checked other settlements... test is over for today haha :)

EDIT: I did encounter one CTD between Tenpines and Outpost Zimonja… just sat longer … not sure what would happen if I tried it a few more times.

I did my test without a city plan in the area. Since then we have identified the below with the Caps General internal plot.

https://simsettlements.com/site/index.php?threads/4-08-ctd-issue.10144/#post-70298

In my tests going from 0 to 1 will cause the CTD. If this plot is in Oberland or Gray Garden it will likely crash.

Not much to be done other than waiting until Friday, avoiding the area or rolling back.

My first test didn’t crash as both locations were empty. In testing anywhere I did put it, it crashed.

KG knows and it is planned for the Friday patch. :rollseye
:happy
