Issues fixed[edit]

"Floating point error" when trying to load a saved game[edit]

Downgrade the game to 1.36 or lower[citation needed]

This issue was introduced with 1.41 patch and was never fixed. To avoid it, reinstall the game and update it only to 1.33 version (1.36 consists only of network enhancements).
