Hydrogen tanks will not fill

Trent Jakcons shared this bug 2 years ago
Outdated

Hydrogen tanks will not fill unless I am in the cock pit.


I was using a script P.A.M. Path auto miner. For automatic remote mining drones.


Everything worked as expected except when the drones docked with connectors to the main ship and turned their tanks to stock pile, they did no fill.


But would suddenly start filling if I enter the drones cockpit.


The conveyor network has been confirmed to work.

Even in stockpile mode, with plenty of hydrogen available in the large grid dock, my small grid ship's hydrogen tank won't fill. Usually, it will begin to fill if I enter its cockpit. It will stop filling when I leave the cockpit. Sometimes this has no effect, and it remains bunged up.

Stockpiling mode is being toggled on and off by the PAM script, which is installed and running, but even when the programming block is turned off the hydrogen tank remains unresponsive.


Notably, when in stockpile mode the tank shows four cyan fill markers, despite not being full. It reverts to a smaller number of green pips when stockpiling is turned off.

Undocking, using hydrogen, docking again, saving and reloading do not seem to change things.


This is not easy to replicate, but I found somebody else having the same issue over a year ago on Reddit.

Still in 1.199.025.

Same bug as reported in https://support.keenswh.com/spaceengineers/pc/topic/hydrogen-tank-on-small-ship-doesnt-fill-up-when-docked and https://support.keenswh.com/spaceengineers/pc/topic/unreliable-stockpiling-of-small-grid-hydrogen-tanks


Note: Simply being in the cockpit does not update the conveyor network to allow resuming stockpiling, it's the act of entering or leaving the cockpit that does so. (That, and any other action that forces an update, such as placing or welding up any block on the grid that has a conveyor. And possibly other workarounds still.)

has been fixed, I recommend OP to retest the issue whether it is fixed, too.

1.2 Big tanks don't fill small tanks, argh. Some specs as above.

EDIT: I turned on stockpile on the small tanks and it's fine now.
