Ship welders unable to start a projected block
I have a saved game with broken ship welders. Both large grid and small grid welders, attached either to a station or to a ship, are unable to start a projected block, either projected from the same station or on a different adjacent station. The same welders are piped up to conveyors and can complete welding a partial block. Only the player tool welder can start a projected block.
The large tool tip on the right side of the HUD that normally displays the information about the block targeted by the welder is instead displaying information about the block immediately in front of the player character, in this case a window block. Somehow the targeting is never shifting to the welder, even when it's the active ship tool. Toggling the welder on, leaving the ship, and approaching the projected block with my welder out does show the block in the target tool tip, but still doesn't provide it to the ship welder. If I then start the block by adding one plate to the projected block, the ship welder immediately activates the welding sound and particle effects and starts welding up the block, completing it in the usual time.
Save game available upon request.
The workaround described here for another projector-related bug does not work.
