Constant crashes on Mac


The game will Semi-randomly crash or disconnect and needs to be relaunched.


open launcher on Mac OS Sonoma, enter server, wait. It may be tied to high performance things such as large explosions or high player counts but I am not completely sure.


I don’t believe screen shots are applicable as no error message is show. The game window simply closes and a Mac crash warning pops up.

Additional context

crashes happen on average once or twice per shift. Sometimes accompanied by high laptop fan usage. I have used methods to improve airflow to see if it was simply my computer but that didn’t help. I have tried enabling the stability option in the launcher but that prevents the game from opening completely.

I am not an experienced programmer and don’t know how to troubleshoot this issue.

computer details:
macOS Sonoma 14.5
M1 chip
8 GB memory

I copied one of the Mac system reports it generates after a crash. might help
