You're right, they don't influence it, what I was seeing was the overloaded message keeping you from loading the ship even after it was completely empty, it reset if you left the inventory and went back.

I already said it was a bug, no item limit was ever intended.

As long as it was clearly shown and didn't have fits when you accidentally tried to overload it, ship limits would probably be fine, I'm OK with or without it.

Honestly I'm just glad I don't run into more bugs and that those we see are fixed quickly.  Everyone involved is awesome, especially Dioxine.

Here's a save on the way to the crash.  I tried it three times and it crashed every time, so if you don't get anything then I must have just borked something when I upgraded.

There is a 40x40 map.
First a 20x20 UFO (Fighter craft, VES_200 map) is placed in the very middle, see screenshot.
And subsequently a 20x20 craft (Nightmare craft, HUNTERKILLER map) cannot be placed anywhere and game crashes.

Used mapscript is:
Code: [Select]
  - type: DESERT
    commands:
    - type: addUFO
    - type: addCraft
    - type: addBlock
      size: 2
      executions: 3
    - type: fillArea

Workaround: Turn on save scumming, so that UFO is placed somewhere else. Or just do anything that uses RNG before landing. Or use a smaller craft.
Fix: I'll leave that to Dioxine's creativity.

Bug:  I had a sharp guy in the workshop ready to be robbed, the project had no been started and no assigned runts.  I forgot what Item sharp guy gives me so I thought I would remove it and add it back.  The bug , the sharp guy was deleted.

Autosave is before,  x1 save is after.   The ship is returning from a mission with the sharp guy in the autosave. Once it returns you may reproduce the bug by simply adding a sharp guy robbery with no runts and then removing it and trying to add it again. The sharp guy is gone.

Unfortunately this is not a bug.  An items used in a manufacturing project are instantly consumed and are not redeemed if the project is cancelled.

Small clarification only the first set of inputs is irrevocably lost. If you have ordered multiples of something only one set of inputs is consumed at a time.

When you click 'aye' in production, the resources are lost. Makes sense IMO since often resources are physically destroyed in the process.

Personally I feel the resources should be consumed upon completion of 1st manhour of production (but that is probably more difficult to setup). Means projects that leave no space in the workshop can be safely canceled if accidentaly started (eg. drill).  Seems strange things would be destroyed before a runt has swung a tool but as I said earlier the clicking 'aye' thing is probably a fair enough approximation.

Only reason I hit aye is to check the pricing stuff, so far I haven't had anything that requires resources be worth enough to worry about that, though I understand it's eventually a thing.

Any way to have it consume the item at the first 5 seconds of actual production? so it requires leaving the base while there's actually runts assigned?

Would be good, but someone would have to code it.

Hi and thanks for making the greatest mod I've ever played ^_^

I'm getting a crash every time I try to manufacture the Healer outfit (saviour armour i think it's called?)

Only base i can build at is RataSum, i could try it at another base after building all the prereqs there but that'd take months...

Help please, can't seem to find anything about it when I use the search function.

Well, you're playing a 15+ month old version of XPirateZ, is there any place I can still download it from to try?
And which version exactly are you playing?

2.5b+ is the version of OXCE+, not PirateZ... piratez should be something like 0.9x or something... where did you download it from?
