Returning player OOM crashes

Hey all. I am a returning player and I have been having out of memory crashes... a LOT. This usually happens during zone transitions but not necessarily. 

I am on an newer HP laptop with a I5 and an AMD 530, plenty of ram etc windows 10. I am not on the best WiFi so I get a little lag but it isn't terrible.

I never had this problem on any of the machines I have played this game on over the years and I have a hard time believing it is my hardware as I can run a heavily modded Skyrim without issue.

I have numerous .dmp files if those would help

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  • Try reducing some graphical settings. That usually does the trick.

    If not, let us know :)

    Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But the captain had decided that he would prefer to achieve immortality by not dying.
  • I've had a couple, doesn't bother me often tho, maybe once in 6 hours played. 
    And yeah usually whilst transitioning into a city.

    To be fair I have everything on max, so I'm probably asking for it too xD
    Love the community? Get paid features, like more ships storage, more building slots, but most importantly: spend a vote for continuing the fun.
