Found a bug? Here's how to help get it fixed!
We're a tiny team and rely on helpful Early Access players to tell us about the bugs we'd never spot on our own. Here's how you can get that bug fixed...

1. After the problem happens try and save your game (if you can, unless it's a crash or save problem).

2. Hit alt+F4 to quit the game if it's still open.

3. Copy and paste this into the address bar of Windows File Explorer:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Far Road Games\Atomic Society\

4. In the folder that opens, you'll see an output_log txt file. We need a copy of that file. You'll also see a saved games folder. Please go in there and copy your whatever your latest save is.

5. Send the output_log txt file (most important) and the save to me at info@farroadgames.com (you'll need to zip them up). Please include instructions on what you were doing at the time.

You can also send the files to me via our Discord https://discord.gg/aGYrUuH (I'm called ScottFarRoad)


That's it! Thanks everybody who takes the 2 minutes to do this. We'll get the bug fixed as soon as we can figure out and the game will be better for everybody.

Had the game stuck on on saving a game 67%, but when I started up the game again it was under save games. Could not reload the save game.

Fixed in an update that will be going live in the next 24 hours. :)

As reported by Monty, I also had the game become unplayable when the raider attack window popped up while I was trying to build. I don't know the UI mechanics, it seems like that raider attack window wasn't receiving any keyboard or mouse events. Esc didn't work. F4 brought up the save window, but it came up behind the raider attack window, so i couldn't see it well enough to interact with it and actually save the game. Esc closed the save window, but had no effect on the raider attack window. in addition to fixing this bug, A quicksave and "save every X hours" feature would be nice to add. I lost my 340 pop town because I hadn't saved.

Hi. Really sorry you had a problem. We think we patched this problem this morning. Did it happen before the update earlier today?

Not so serious but kind of a pain.
Getting stuck in mointains with the camera. Sometimes it does not pass through.
In my experience little thing like this can play against even the best devs.
I have a good fealing about this game! Lots of fun so far!

I've experienced this too. One temporary fix I use is to switch to leader mode as that forces your camera to where your leader is. Then just switch back to overview and it should work again :). Hope it helps!!!

Prisoner's keep dying of starvation/lack of water. I only have a few units of food and drink in the storehouse, but it isn't zero.

My question is: Is this a known bug or is it just because the food and water is already claimed?

Hard to say on that one, but prison wardens don't check for food and water as regularly as regular citizens so that might be the cause. Or your wardens are dying of something else. If you're sure it's a bug, feel free to send us your save game (using the method above) and I'll look into it. :)

Thanks for the info. Do you know if there is anyone reason citizens should be dying of ''Not having one of their basic needs met'' even when I have tons of extra food, water, housing and entertainment? It's like they aren't going to the storehouse to get food/drink. Is there something I should build or do to make my citizens obtain food and water?

There shouldn't really be a reason for people to be dying of low needs if you have everything you need...

Town layout can play a part with keeping people alive (e.g. can a hungry citizen get to a storehouse in time?). Do your medical and morale buildings have spare space or are they running at max capacity all the time so people can't get inside them when needed? Do you have enough workers at each building so the staff can relieve them themselves when needed?

(I'm just chucking out random tips)

It's also the case that certain professions (like scavengers) are at risk of dying of hunger, etc, because they have to work far away from town. We're going to buff them in a future update as this isn't really the player's fault.

It's pretty difficult to have a town where no one ever dies of low needs (with all the randomisation and social issues playing a part) but you should be able to make it a rare occurrence with a well-designed town. :)
