Update = everything disappears

Post by tomnewdelhi » Fri May 06, 2016 4:48 pm

This has happened twice now and its getting tiresome...

started a server world (star system 3 planets one)

Come down in lander, build a base, powered by solar panels batteries and a medbay etc. Logged off, come back on and spawned on it no trouble (lander despawned as expected)

came on today and tried to run SE, couldnt see server as "running different version"

made a backup of my world on my PC, then run steam updater,

found server in game listings, joined said server.

now my only options are planetary lander, i cant see my base, all my waypoints are gone and my faction is gone too.

Whats the cause of this? i first thought that my base ran out of power so i checked the sandbox.sbc with toolbox and the base isnt even in there, just my character, the lander and the 3 planets.

i cant see this being a script to delete the "unpowered" as it was fine for 3 days, it only seems like its after an update. can anyone shed light on this?

Have you set your world as persistent? Otherwise on a reboot the server will generate you a fresh world
