It doesn't always happen but most of the time with the Construction ship the game crashes back to desktop without an error message.

6 - the OK button in the shipbuiding screen is grayed out
(workaround: double-click the ship)
Had this happen in Windows 10 Pro (1903 build) so I double clicked to build a surveyor I.

Did this before I started the game but double clicking on before mentioned surveyor I game CTD. Playing as Feds, huge galaxy, slowest tech, early start, many minors, playable Borg. I think was turn 32. Just putting this out there. Let me know if you need further info :smile:

So removing win7 comp seemed to fix the CTD. I figured running the game in win7 comp was a current issue. Maybe I was just unlucky.

It rarely crashes for me, but I just found a workaround, albeit a silly one. But it seems to always work.
I'm playing the game on fullscreen mode.
If I have another window open in the background (say Notepad), and I click the build button and select a ship and the button is grayed out, I ALT+TAB to the other window (Np in this case) - and this is the important part - and I change its status (from maximized to not maximized, or the other way around) and then ALT+TAB back to the game, the button is active again.
Yes, silly and not very handy, but until we get that fixed, it's an alternative.

It's a shame hitting Enter doesn't work...

BTW, hitting a letter key will select the first ship in the build list whose name starts with that letter. Just a curiosity.

Interesting. I'm curious how you came to find that workaround lol. Not sure if I need it because I've double clicked multiple ships from scouts to cruisers to build them and no crash. I did do the old "run as administrator" bit to start the exe and *knocks on wood* that seemed to do the trick for me *shrugs*

By accident... I mean, because I'm really smart and all that. :cool:

But yeah, it is rare for this to happen. Might be something like clicking too fast or misclicking or something.
