GPS Markers' Names Lost After Logout (Seems Urgent)

William Eler shared this bug 40 days ago
Solved

Yesterday after the new "Sparks of the Future" Update, I made several GPS markers. I logged out and logged in and all the names I used were gone. The GPS locations are marked but have the original/default name the game itself suggests when created.

This bug is highly repeatable. I logged out and back in several times yesterday, trying different things and always the same result. I also just reconfirmed it right now, today.

I even tried to edit previous GPS entries. Their names. Their descriptions. Everything seems to save before logout. I am guessing this is stored locally, because *Nothing* is *actually* saved when you log back in.

This in multiplayer on a Keen Official Server. CA #2

I also saw this bug: https://support.keenswh.com/spaceengineers/publictest/topic/gps-marker-list-empty-after-serverrestart

The second comment has a guy who say he confirmed this on multiple servers. He too only started having problems after the Sparks of the Future update.

P.S. I just saw this posted too (12 hours ago): https://support.keenswh.com/spaceengineers/pc/topic/gps-markers

I am *not* seeing the behavior described at that post. I deleted a GPS Marker, logged out, and logged back in. And the GPS Marker was indeed deleted.

So, I don't believe that bug and the one I posted above are directly linked. This bug seems independent of that one.

The second commenter named "Scrumbee" joined 6 hours ago and posted 6 hours ago the following:

"Both me and my brother both have this same issue now, even tryd a few diffrent servers and same issue where once you dc and reconect to the server all you GPS markers names and details gets wiped, only cordinates remains. And all GPS markers gets your playername#1 the defualt one when you make new markers. This seriously needs to be looked at first started happening for me when this new DLC got released."

Sorry to "double post" this, but what he's describing is exactly what I'm seeing. He too says it is only with the new DLC/Update which is exactly the case for me.

Yea we did not have any issues with GPS markers beforehand just started happening for us sometime after DLC got released, can say for sure if its was during DLC itself or the hotfix that came after but yea close enogh. But look at this: https://support.keenswh.com/spaceengineers/publictest/topic/colored-gps-marker-name-resets-to-default-value-after-end-the-game


says Fixed in 1.196.001, this version aint even released yet and was posted 16 days ago, so yea idk what to think at this point.

Having the same issue, was fine before the latest updates. Looks like the bug that is fixed has now been introduced into the live version and we need to wait for the fix, why introduce a known bug?

Yuya,

No, as I said above, I am not seeing that bug, so they seem to be independent.

Thanks for trying though.

Hello,


Hello, thank you for the report. This was supposed to be fixed in Hotfix 195.020. Is anyone still encountering disappearing GPS names?


Thank you!


Kind Regards
