Hi guys,

We reproduced the issue, although with different reproduction steps, without logging on and off. Hopefully it will fix this case as well. Thank you very much for your feedback.

Hi Keen, is there and ETA on this fix? Just wondering because this is a huge game breaking bug for us, we have a station, and quite a few complex systems and ships which rely on groups and everything just gets broken when the groupings are deleted every time someone logs on or off. Just makes the game so frustrating and difficult to play.


I really hope you can fix this :)

Thanks in advance.

Guys I have come up with a work around using timer blocks in your ship builds.

Basically instead of grouping all the engines for example I now use timer blocks to to turn the engines on and off as an action (upto 8 engines per timer block) leaving the final 9th slot to "start" a second timer block to control another 8 engines and so on. Then have the lead timer bound to a number button to start. There by pressing the number button can turn on or off all engines. Or set batteries to recharge etc..


My only advice with this setup is to have a battery set to recharge mode in your build linked to a number key to ensure your build always has power available for the timer blocks, a kinda starter motor if you will. Otherwise the build could run out of power and the timers will be useless.


But this method ensures you can make a build without any grouped blocks to be deleted.

Well it works, and I'm sorry I missed your fix or advice in the comments, dude.

timer blocks have a total of 10 bars with which you can fill so only one timer block is needed for even a good sized large ship. even then this issue needs fixed it makes playing with friends tedious and annoying.
