Merge Block and Ship Power

Solved

If I disconnect from a merge block, my disconnected-ship's power turns off, only working blocks are reactors/batteries after I disconnect but they are not working properly.

However, if I add a new functional block to the ship, everything turns to normal.

I had this issue in my different worlds and ships and it happens %70 of the time.

I have this issue a lot in my gravitational warhead launcher, it basically shoots warhead torpedos using gravity generators and artificial mass, but right after I disconnect the torpedo from the merge block, artificial mass turns off even it has reactor/battery attached to it.

This is being really annoying, please fix.

I have the same issue with my MAC (Mass Accelerator Cannon). It welds up a round onto a Merge block. The round consists of a Merge block, Battery, Timer block and Artificial Mass blocks. As soon as the round disconnects from the ship the round seemingly powers off, even though the battery has power stored.

I'm also having the same issue:

Here's a video to demonstrate with artificial mass:

It's exactly the same bug that I was trying to describe.

Hi,

I was able to reproduce the issue after watching the video from @Jackattack, thanks! I hope it is the same issue as the one from the top. If anyone else have a blueprint or a world which suffers with the same or similar bug, please share it here.

Thank you.

I have such a blueprint, It's a work in progress ship design but the cannon on it is functional. It uses a variety of mods though so it isn't exactly vanilla. however, this isn't necessarily the issue with it as it seems this happens to all large merge blocks but not small ones.

The mods I use are in here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1515523903
