    Windows 10 PC, last version of Civ6 on Steam with the full NFP.
    It seems that since the last patch, I am getting a lot of crashes to desktop at end of turn.
    Is this happening to anybody else?

    This all seemed to begin when W10 did one of it's infamous 'enforced updates' that cannot be refused.
    Current version of OS: Windows 10 Pro build 19043.1165
    Civ6 version: last update released, All expansions & DLC

    It is driving me mad.....please suggest anything that may help

    Quite a few people have been having these issues, and no one is quite sure why.
    The only thing I can suggest is to try disabling mods if you are using any.

    The only mods being used are QoL - GUI tweaks etc. and that is all.
    Not at all sure this has anything to do with it, but I will ask around in the Steam Workshop if this is related.
    What wee need to do rather than a scattergun 'disable all mods' option is to find out from those who are having the problem to post the mods they are using - if any.
    My guess it is the bloody Windows 10 update I was forced to install. I HATE this OS so much it is not funny

    I wonder if it has to be me that creates the wonder? Probably not, as I don't have one built yet but so far at turn 123 I have had one 'stuck at the turn end', followed so far by 4 crashes to desktop now.

    It is now at the point where the game is literally unplayable on Windows 10.
    If the game does not freeze at the turn end it sticks, and after it has done either of these full crash to desktop is not far behind.
    NO MODS - just official content.
    FIX THIS, FIRAXIS!!!!

    I get these end-of-turn crashes and can't see any common factor about them. They happened in Win10 and are still happening in Win11. They happen using Direct 11 and 12. They happen despite following tech advice to disable core 0 in the task manager affinity option. They happen whatever civ I play. In some sessions they don't happen at all, in others they happen on consecutive turns.
    The crashes can be complete throw outs, or freezes, and I've long lost count of the number of times the game sends crash info to Microsoft.
    For me these crashes are now just part of the playing experience. I save every turn, and have auto-save set for every turn - just in case I forget.
    This is an abysmal state of affairs and a bad reflection on the developers.

    I'm pretty sure these freezes occur directly after the city states and barbarians have had their turns. Whatever processing comes next causes the problem.
    Microsoft must have millions of these reports and Firaxis must have been informed. They do not fix a fixable problem.
    I suggest all Civ players vote with their wallets when the next gen comes out and refuse to buy.

    The same is happening to me. Game crashes every 1-3 turns or so. Used to be fine on this same system with the same settings. I stopped playing the game for a year or so, and when I returned, this happened, and the game is unplayable.
