Games either closes or stops responding when trying to assign frigates to missions. Have not been able to conclusively identify specific triggers but seems to include when the view through the window or background of the frigate selection screen includes frigates, planetary rings and rocks passing by. Also occurs if trying to assign a second mission without having first getting to a completely different area either in the freighter or exiting for any reason and returning. Do not have any crashes when doing anything else in the game.
So far all that I can do is to reload the game and try to move my freighter to another system. Once in a while just moving the freighter to a different area in the same system may fix this but so far have not found that to be consistent.
After sending out a mission I then go back to my ship and force a save. I can then go back to assign the next mission and this seems to avoid the problem with assigning missions consecutively.
Anyone run across this and find a way to avoid or fix besides what I listed above?
