Largest mining and military cargo ships do not spawn

That is, the Mining Hauler and Military Transporter - for whatever reason, they never appear. Even with no mods, even with a x100 spawn rate mod, even modifying the base game files to make them the only spawnable ship; I cannot make them appear, period.


I should also mention that mods adding new cargo ships also fail to work; it seems like the spawn list is locked to only: The three vanilla commercial ships, the Mining Carriage, the Mining Transport, the Military Escort, the Military Minelayer, and the RUST Freighter.

I, too, miss the Military Transporter, it looks industrial and gritty and it is such good loot :D

OK, now you appear to have broken cargo ship spawning completely - nothing is spawning. The log contains no errors regarding their spawn; the game simply does not even try.

The immediate above - ie no spawns - has resolved itself.

Yeah, no Military Transporter or Mining Hauler.. despite my low game hour count, I have plenty of experience encountering them from the past; I really miss them, they were real threats to me back then, now I can't really see them anymore.


Can confirm without mods, with some mods (not related to spawns or new blocks/mechanincs), also can confirm that it exists at least from the update 189, when I bought the game.


Also, prove me wrong but they may be locked behind some progression system or sort of, like you should destroy a bunch of easier cargo ships or something like that, but I doubt it. It's just a conception.


Also#2, I read about other encounter ships that spawn drones and follow you around, it had the name something like "Avenius" or something, it's on the space engineers wiki (not the fandom one), I've never seen it myself anywhere, just the most common repetitive ones (prometheus, sector f, habitat pods, salvage station, pirate raider, that ghoul ship and some other small trap-like large ships)

All those do not appear anymore since survival update. They took those out and broke the game by replacing those with crap

Joseph: Do you have any evidence that their removal was intentional?

The battleships do not spawn as well as a lot of the cargo ships that used to be in the game. They're not even in the files anymore. Also the gppd pirate bases we used to have, have been taken out and replaced with crud as well as the derelict ships
