And if you play on ironman the auto save lags the game for a sec or something like that when leaving towns and doing other stuff like that. so a auto pause would then remove that lost time.
Exactly that. I try to always pause before I enter a city or hit space as I leave the town. I still get that lag though. After unpausing, my party “teleports” a few steps. Having the game do that for me would be great.
