macOS / M1 Max - Frequent crashing while exploring

My game would hang / crash frequently while looking for plants to harvest in the first area (SNH?), requiring a hard reboot. Gave up after the third time.

Latest game build.

System:

macOS 12.4
Mac Studio 2022
Chip: Apple M1 Max
Memory: 64GB

Will update to macOS 12.5.1 later tonight to see if that helps and will report back if so.

[Edit: updated OS to 12.5.1 and was able to play some more without crashing. Will continue to monitor.]

How long do you play before this crash occurs typically? What settings are you using? I have never crashed on my M1 Max with 64gb of ram :(

I had played maybe a 30-45 minutes before first crash, then they happened with frequency (roughly every 5-10 minutes). Haven't seen any crashes since updating to 12.5.1 however.
