Developer Drago Entertainment has launched a new hotfix for Gas Station Simulator that resolves random crashes while playing. The update also fixes the auto-save feature not working as intended, especially in the later stages of the game.

According to the devs, it turns out that Texture Streaming is the reason why the game has been crashing a lot lately. This is fixed in the newest update, which alleviates the need to disable the feature to avoid in-game crashes. The developers have also implemented minor fixes that may potentially further improve the game’s overall stability.

The folks at Drago Entertainment have improved the auto-saving functionality as well. Your current session will automatically be saved every four minutes regardless of quest progression. The main menu should also properly detect game saves now, so you will no longer encounter a greyed-out “Continue” button.

Patch Notes

  • We discovered that Texture Streaming was responsible for a significant amount of random crashes in various circumstances. Those crashes have been fixed and it was not necessary to disable Texture Streaming like last time
  • Various minor stability fixes that do add up to a more stable game and some extra checks in a few places that were potentially crashing the game
  • Autosave should trigger every 4 minutes regardless of quest progression unless quest has it specifically prevented (First Dennis Quest as an example)
  • The Main Menu should properly detect saves and no longer wrongly grey out the Continue button
  • Fixed an issue with Challenges where under certain circumstances you could skip the "Upgrade Station to X" quest when loading a game
  • You should no longer be able to skip Painting Quest by getting rid of Dennis too quickly
  • You should no longer be able to clear the hay-bales too quickly before the quest, and get stuck on the quest
  • Gas Station opening/closing lever should no longer be stuck randomly and not interactable after loading the game
  • Amount of litter and trash has been both further reduced. The effectiveness of employee cleaning ability remains unchanged from Update #1 for the time being. This is a stop-gap measure until Update #2
  • Added "Headbob" option (not localized yet) to the options menu. Its purpose is to disable camera motion on movement. This option by default is enabled
  • Mini-golf should no longer give you infinite money
  • Minor UI fixes
  • Some translation fixes, especially for Thai

Gas Station Simulator September 21 hotfix is now available on PC.
