Working as Designed Desertification progress bar won't move

When generating a new world, the progress bar stops doing anything on the desertification step as shown here:

When choosing the Master world option, this step takes significantly longer. Long enough that I originally thought that the game got soft locked:


Yes it does. Smaller worlds mean less time spent looking like you're stuck. I see that as irrelevant to the fact that this is still a problem.

I'm not really sure this is an issue or a bug - world gen takes time and there are a couple other steps that take some time.


Sometimes certain steps take longer than others and progress bars have never been made to go smoothly.
