This has been going on for awhile for some players.  Somehow I've never had the problem.  Which amazes me.  I can usually expect every bug and then some.

Happened to me, two weeks in a row 

SkyWolfie told me to...

After you win a crate,

Log out, clear your cache 

Log in,wait for your hard drive to settle down 

Then open the crate 



It worked for me 

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Yup, this happened to me last week and last night.  No satisfying THWOMP, just peaceful blue sky and clouds.

And a frozen screen.  Out of game, back in and the rewards were there, 3 days of premium or whatever.


There was also one circumstance when I opened up on a Sunday to finish the last requirement and the game informed me I had not done the previous six days!  That was not the case.  I've been doing it regularly for weeks now.  Missed one or two but threw in tokens to make it up.  But being informed I had missed 6 days worth of contributions I KNOW I had done... .

That happens when you get 3 days of premium time, which is one of the best things that drop from the crates so I would not sweat it, log back in and milk it for 3 days.

This issue can appear if you receive Premium Time from the crate and you have no Premium Time before that. At that moment the Hangar changes to the premium hangar and can freeze the game.

My game freezes from this bug seem co related to whether i am using mods or not. Running in safe mode whenever i open crates solves the issue for me.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is much like my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

It ain't mod related. When you receive the crate, exit the game and re-enter. It may very well be premium time related as BF says.  :)
