Saving interface progress bar/dialogue improvements
Small thing I think would be very helpful for both new players and veterans:

When the game starts to save, instead of hard freezing/hanging the whole client, a progress bar or dialogue box running on its own thread should appear instead. This should generally show the progress of the save, along with saying "Saving" somewhere. Even if the scene/rest of the UI freezes, this progress bar should continue running to prevent Windows from declaring the program as hanged.
Most games nowadays do this as it is a lot more user friendly than just hard locking the client, which can easily be mistaken for a crash (I've done so a lot)

For example, Dwarf Fortress does this and locks the game behind the dialogue box, but the client keeps running the progress bar, so the user is aware of what is happening
What even
