Specific examples I'm aware of include:
- If an autosave occurs while the user is dragging a tool which selects an area (like creating a blueprint or using an upgrade/deconstruction planner), the tool forgets the area that was being selected and selects a tiny area under the mouse. For most such tools, especially in in the base game, this will have no effect.
- If an autosave occurs very shortly after the user has clicked a location with an artillery targeting remote, and the user moves their mouse while the save is in progress, the artillery will target the location of the mouse after the autosave finishes, rather than the location that was actually clicked.
- If an autosave occurs while the user is selecting a location for a map tag, the map tag will be placed immediately at the current mouse location, without the user having clicked to confirm the location.
