Re: the infinite save hang, it seems pretty clear that the problem is triggered when there is a cutscene to start the day. I think the bug must be with the new auto save function, as it specifically does not operate during festivals and cutscenes. If the rules are “save during cutscene=no” and “save after sleep=yes,” this seems likely to be the conflict causing the hang/crash. It might be a relatively easy fix in that case, just by changing the cutscenes to trigger not after the character goes to sleep for the night but a few in-game moments later (ie, 6:01 am, as an analogy), so the save has time to complete without conflict. I believe in you, devs! You can do it! Save our marriages! Thank you!
