Ship despawns when I get into it

Dennis G shared this bug 7 months ago
Won't Fix

Latest version of space engineers, vanilla survival server (no mods) hosted by GTX Gaming.


Starting today, the very first small grid ship I get into after [re-]joining the server almost immediately despawns with me still in it (I find myself floating where the cockpit used to be). So far I've had this happen like clockwork 3 times. The only thing the ships had in common is that they had been docked to the same station and both ships happen to have at least one welder (I'm not at all sure this is in any way significant though).


When the ship is about to disappear, the game shows a flashing semi-transparent red bounding cube around it (like nothing I've seen before).


This is obviously rendering the game unplayable. Please investigate and fix ASAP.

Update: Also happens to large-grid ships and ships without welders. 7e945c0e68b8f2c2084fabc028987ee6

Update 2: It seems to be a viable workaround to 1) press backspace to respawn, and the 2) leave and rejoin one's faction. I'm not sure which of the two actions does the trick, will confirm if this happens again.

Update 3: The above workaround is only a temporary delay... Ships keep disappearing!

The log shows: "2021-02-23 01:07:18.137 - Thread: 1 -> XXX was trying to cheat!"

where XXX is my username.

Other players on the server are unaffected.

Hello Dennis!

Sorry to hear you're experiencing this issue. Is this still something that persists? Is this only happening in the one specific server or are you having it happen no matter where you play? There has been a small update recently and wondered if this had any effect on the issue at all?

Kind Regards

Hello, Engineer!


Because there is no new comment from you, and we are unable to reproduce the issue on our own, I will close this thread now as outdated.


If you or any other player will experience this issue again, please make a new thread and provide all needed info there.


Thank you for understanding.


Kind Regards
