current status (left), saved, immediately loaded (right)

all population types are affected, albeit those with lower residents numbers might lose only 1-2 (or none)
i have yet to notice this NOT happening
to ensure there cannot be any unfulfilled needs, i even tried with trainer where i set unlimited money+influence+goods, but still population is lost
happens on both a game i started on v12, as well as a game originally from v9

Hey @hundread1800,

Sorry to hear that after loading your save you lose some population.

Can I just check what method you use to save your game?

Many thanks

@hundread1800 Hey there!

Thank you for confirming this. Would you be able to let us know if you have access to 'Bright Sands' at all? This may be related to a previously reported issue.

Have you noticed that this population counter returns to normal after any specific actions?

Thank you.
