Cities Skylines 2 has a lot of performance issues, it starts lagging, crashes randomly, and the screen flickers at times too. Therefore, it is a must that every player has autosave turned on so that when he decides to restart the application, no major progress is lost.

Important: If a player made a bad choice and now his city is overcrowded, and he wants to go back, autosave comes into play then, too. He can go back to the time when his city was in a better state and rebuild.
