Here's what happens: Upon performing some benign action, the game simply stops. It doesn't crash, it just stops. Inputs cease to function entirely and the only options I that work are minimize, maximize, and close. No crash log is generated, and the game does still appear to be running, but the screen is completely frozen. This also occurs regardless of if mods are in use or not, and occurs more often with more complicated actions. attempting to start vehicles tends to trigger it a lot, as does searching bushes.
I'm also sort of inclined to believe this might be something on my end, as none of my friends are experiencing this :/
