Here's my problem: I want to play a heavily modded Fallout 4. Once I start a fresh game I can, strangely enough, play just fine without any issues and any crash. However, once I exit the game, and start it up later, I cannot load the save game any more, because it crashes to desktop almost immediately.

The mods I want to play with: https://pastebin.com/gTY2J3Sk
Any culprits there?

  • Have you sorted your load order? Are you using Mod Organizer, or something similar? Are you starting the game using SKSE? Have you changed your load order since you saved your game? – Joachim Jun 20 at 8:44
  • Yes I am, loot and Vortex, load order's fine. FO4se is being used. Haven't changed anything since I saved the game. Just turned off the PC, because, y'know, I need sleep and to eat too. – Grumpy ol' Bear Jun 20 at 9:05
  • I know, it's a burden being tethered to these physical husks. Has FO4 updated in the meantime, perhaps? Maybe try cleaning your saved game with Fallrimtools, just to see if there is an error with some script? – Joachim Jun 20 at 9:26
  • By the way, "almost immediately", means you see the loading screen for a couple of seconds? – Joachim Jun 20 at 9:33
  • Additionally, you might want to try resetting the .ini's to their default (cut/paste somewhere else, and let the game generate new ones), and try again. – Joachim Jun 20 at 9:34
