[kovarex] [1.1.6] Power pole connections will be dropped randomly and cause isolated power polesas

Post by AntiElitz »

When putting blueprints next to each other, power poles may add a 6th ghost wire connection between the blueprints. Later they drop a random(?) connection because the maximum to have is 5. This way power poles that have been part of the original blueprint can become isolated.
This may seem like an edge case, but this happened to me 2 times in 2 days now. This is not very intuitive either. It would not have happened in 1.0, because there the "isolated" power pole would just connect to some other pole that has still free connections left.

I thought I was going crazy. Glad to know I'm not the only one.

Hello, thanks for the report, this is quite the timing.
There is quite a big change related to how real/ghost electric pole connections are internally handled which fixes several inconsistencies and this is one of them, so it is fixed for the next release.

I'm having this problem in [1.1.30], was it reintroduced at some point?
Efficient inefficient design.
