My wife and I both play ESOTU on Xbox One. She has a standard console and I have the Elite version with the hybrid solid state drive. Ever since Orsinium/Wrothgar we have both experienced a lot of crashing in the city of Orsinium as have many others based on other posts in this forum. This is still a problem today and as an added bonus lately we have both had tremendous issues around the Undaunted Enclave in Grahtwood as well. It is a problem on the standard Xbox, however on the Elite version it is almost unplayable to the point I have to have my wife log out and I use her standard Xbox One to handle in business inside Orisinium City and to take or turn in any Pledges from the Enclave. She still has occasional crashing, but on my Xbox Elite it is a guaranteed crash if I try to access the Undaunted Enclave normally.
I have through experimentation found that if I crawl up the long root from the water and then walk backwards in first person view completely looking away from both the enclave or the giant grahtoak tree, I can sometimes avoid the crash until someone gets in my camera. Orisinum can be traversed sometimes on foot at walk speed but only when there are no others around. Last night I was doing fine in Orisinium and then someone came out of the pub and another rode by on a horse and poof, instant crash. In both of these circumstances, repeated loads and attempts to move out of the affected area most often results in crashes within 2-5 seconds. Last night I had 6 straight crashes before I finally gave up and used my wife's console.
It appears to be somewhat related to texture loading/swapping in high volume areas both in terms of players and/or large environment features of the Graht Oak and Orisinium Buildings. I have only experienced these issues in those two locations but it's so reproducible it's not even funny at this point. Considering the issue is more prevalent on the Elite console than the normal, my guess is it has something to do with the faster harddrive. Perhaps it's loading too fast for the processor trying to process the geometries, but hopefully some of this will lead the QA/Test team down the right path to figuring it out. I do know that on dungeon loads and any other transitions, my console is significantly faster at zoning in than my wife's standard machine. It's usually a plus having it, but not when I have to use another machine to handle my pledges or Orisinium crafting writs. Please help.
Are any other Elite console users experiencing any of these issues as well?
