Shipyard consuming turrets inconsistently

Post by Vectorial1024 » Wed, 9. Jan 19, 16:40

Hey there. I have noticed a rather inconsistent bug that affects NPC capital shiptraders. Shiptraders affected by this bug will not consume turrets even when I have specified to build a ship with full upgrades.

As required by the Technical Support rules:
  • Using X Rebirth: v4.30 (254587)
  • Only uses this mod (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... =467737956) to let me get money on gamestart to quickly test the bug
  • Gamestart is "Aspiring Merchant"
  • Game starts, wait for money to be given, go to Eternal Dawn, comm shiptraders via Main Menu -> 5 -> 7 -> 1, and build ships; even though I order for full upgrade, when I do "show resource status", some of the 3 shiptraders do not list turret wares in the resource list

Just as a sanity check, when any ship so affected completes, does it have installed the turrets you ordered? Are you sure that you paid for them as in they bumped up the basic ship price that you paid?

I ask because the turret, drone, ammo ordering sequence is a rather fussy sequence of events and it is very easy to abort it by mistake without actually ordering what you intended to.

I ran a test, and have a safefile ready. Here: https://github.com/Vectorial1024/XRB_Sh ... retProblem
(Side note: A group of HV raiding squad is behind me)

I am at Eternal Dawn. The 3 Shiptraders, from the top of the 5-7-1 Menu to the bottom, are: [L] Karry (1), [L] Marelle (2), and [XL] Marissa (3).

The order that I commed them and the ships that I built were: Karry (1) {Boann}, Marelle (2) {Sequana}, Marissa (3) {Lyrannea}.

All 3 ships were ordered with maximum upgrades. I am charged more than the base price for all 3 of the ships. All 3 ships were successfully built with full upgrades.

The Sequana came out first, followed by the Lyrannea, finally the Boann. The save file is made when all 3 of the ships are still being built.

Verify that Marelle (2) {Sequana} and Marissa (3) {Lyrannea} does not list the turrets in the "show resource status" list, while Karry (1) {Boann} shows them.

A bump.

Is this issue confirmed to be an actual bug?

The fact that 3 ship builds if approached indentically can show different resource type listings would indeed indicate an issue with the ship or shipyard coding. Unfortunately, getting dev attention to what is an inconsistency rather than a game-stopper while X4 currently commands their full focus would be most unlikely. Sorry.
