Starmade | removing shipyard computer while constructing results in item loss
Closed, FinishedPublic


If the shipyard computer die or gets removed while it's constructing, the blocks already used do not get dropped.
This would be fine if the ship that was there, and could be salvaged but it's stuck in an invalid mode. (It's probably not even a real ship)

Re-linking the anchor to a new shipyard will also delete any progress.

Steps to reproduce

Begin constructing a ship with a shipyard - feed the computer some parts for the ship. While the ship is 'Constructing,' enter a build block and right click the Shipyard Computer.

All in-progress parts are lost.

Tester information (Internal use only)

Fastest way to replicate is to deconstruct a ship into a design then attempt to reconstruct. While the ship is being rebuilt remove the shipyard computer. The design will appear on the ground but all other blocks will be lost.
