De-Merged grids stay static

Kuroshi shared this bug 3 years ago
Not a Bug

When building a larger airtight Hangar Door, I noticed that my grids wouldn't tun from static into large grid when un-merged although they did not have voxel connection.

This sadly caused the Automatisation of this larger Hangar Door to fail as I needed to manually convert the 2 grids that make up the door to a ship.

STR:

1. load the attached world

2. Go to the only grid in that world and trigger the "Timer H1", it activates pistons and deactivates the merges.

3. You will notice the merges shut off, but the doors do not move as they are still static.

Expected behavior: Non-voxel anchored grids should get turned into ships when de-merged

This bug came back in one of the last few updates.


i sometimes get the same problem with grids that spawn on planets and when the legs are taken out the grid just stays in the air.

Hmm~ This seems to be a relatable thing for me. I had a huge tower from Xocliw Martian City and I blew the bottom of the building out. It didn't fall it just floated and stay static. However if I blew up a tiny tower it falls. I guess a certain largegrid size will stay static even if it suppose to turn into a loose grid.


Post I made about this. https://support.keenswh.com/spaceengineers/general/topic/static-grid-doesnt-fall-when-damaged

Hello, Engineer!


Thank you for your contacting us, but this behaviour is intended for optimization.

Converting the whole thing into ship would solve the issue. However, it will be forwarded to our designers to see if there is anything we overlooked.


We will message you once we have more information to share.


Kind Regards

This is affecting attacking/destroying static grids. I'm playing with adaptive simulation quality turned off because I love engineering and demolition. I use to be able to plan or plot a way for attacking a base and it was fun attacking it so it would fall in a certain way. I feel like this optimization is way too strict and its killing the fun and it just annoying to fly in and hit "convert to ship". This building is a prop and its so small and hollow even having a ship smash into it makes it float.

If they just make it into a feature I can toggle on our off in the world settings I'd be happy.

The grid in the world I shared was actually in voxel. This bug disabled my larger hangar door and I would have to convert manually by flying over after unmerging every time I want to open it. Please do consider making a checkbox for this. I will also make a suggestion for this later.

Someone made a suggestion to make this a option we should be able to turn on and off.
