That error log is odd, any mods involved here?

Does this happen at all at game start?

Does galaxy size make any difference?

DXDIAG is a program you run from the Windows search box on the task bar. After running it will open a window and start collecting info with a progress bar in the lower-left corner. When it completes click the 'save all information' button and save it to a file then attach that file here.

Several errors in the Windows Update process in there, plus a crash in nVidia. Let's try some things:

- uninstall the nVidia video driver plus all other nVidia software
- reboot
- instal May 2022 https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
- reboot again

- run the Windows Update utility
- apply everything it finds , and reboot again

- unload GeForce Experience if it is now loaded, and try the game again with a new test galaxy.

If you still get the problem, please attach here new copies of all those files above, thanks.
