I've been playing on Keen NA #3 server. I finally got out into space and mined enough resources to start building a space station. It wasn't finished, but it had an accessible cargo container with a connector, a solar panel and a control seat. It was small enough that I could convert it to ship, connect to it and drag it behind my ship. I dragged it with me to go find some Nickel. I stopped a decent distance from the asteroid, then I got out, went around to the control seat and converted it to station before I got back in the ship and disconnected.
After I disconnected, I pushed space bar to thrust directly up from it and I got about 40m away, before the ship dampened and came to a hault. However, when it did, it acted as if it was locked with the landing gear. When I tried to thrust again, it flew sparks from my landing gear and from the station, which was still 40m away. I unlocked my landing gear and was free to fly again, so I figured it was a fluke thing and continued to land on the asteroid and then get into my turtle miner (also dragged behind my big ship via connector) and mined a bunch of Nickel. When I came back to the station to try to connect again, my ship would clip through it, as if it wasn't physically there, but it was visually. So I got out of the ship and went up to it with my torch. All of the blocks acted right with the torch. I didn't try to grind anything, but I checked the control seat. It would highlight yellow, but if I pressed f, nothing would happen. I couldn't mount the seat.
So then I thought maybe I should get my character back inside the ship and reload the game. Before I did, I moved the ship just a little so it wasn't clipping, then I converted the ship to station, so I had 2 stations, right next to each other. I actually rebooted the entire PC, because I left it on overnight to download Steam game updates, and I wanted to dump cache and get a fresh boot.
So, once I finally got back into the game, my ship is still there, but the station is gone. However, I had named it something specific and it's still listed as an owned structure under my info tab that's taking up PCU.
