We've found reason why engine sometimes corrupting saved games.

Try to imagine following situation - Stalker's world has own environment, NPC's, objects, items selled by traders, etc. etc (just everything) - all of these aspects are processed by engine which has some limitations. Sometimes game's engine can't handle the amount of data it has to save/load and then - you're received CTD with above logs. Saves are corrupted because engine knows earlier that he wouldn't handle amount of data so he can only tell: "Fuck you and your gameplay. I need to rest, bye"
I don't know if we are able to make something with it but we'll think about it and at least try. In addition it's strange situation because on 100 people there are about 10-15 who has this problem. Not 100 players, only few percent. We have no ANY idea why this problem won't touch everyone.
That's not all: I had same problem in other mods; Complete 2009, Priboi Story, Return of the Scar and other mods which didn't added so many stuff. This problem was EVEN IN VANILLA CLEAR SKY. GSC knew about it and they had veeeery "nice" adventure with minimize it. I've found posts where people who played in MISERY had same problem, so in COP it's also possible.
It's fucking frustrating guys, because we made everything through these years to make the mod stable as possible but X-Ray won't allow us to make it perfect. Like evil spirit. Of course it doesn't mean that AA2 it's unplayable or something, no. There are thousands of people who has finished the SoC with AA2. You have to remember about possibility that somewhere can sneaking little bastard who it's able to make a lot of bad things.
