This was quite a controversial matter, I'm surprised you decided to change it (all of a sudden?).

Oh come on. I sometimes use autosaves to save something temporarily without any intent to keep it for longer. What about an option in the pause menu that performs an autosave immediately?

Is this reverting the change in 0.17.0 or is that something else?

I think that refers to returning the finished product, not the ingredients

no, you always get the already finished products. i suppose it's a bit misspelled, but it definitely referred to the ingredients that are currently being turned into another product. you got them back until that change, and now you get them back again, just like with manual crafting.

At least for centrifuges doing Kovarex this is somewhat useful in mid game.
Nice change for save nomenclature though.

I bet that "crafting machines" doesn't include the rocket silo.

Rocket parts aren‘t even an extractable thing.

Joking aside, it's actually possible for mods to trigger autosaves. I could write you a tiny mod that would let you trigger an autosave using a hotkey or a command.

There was an undocumented change in either lua character handling or the implementation of log(). Non ASCII characters are now converted to their UTF8 encoding and written in UTF8 encoding in the log. I wonder why, lua was supposedly character encoding agnostic.

There is a hidden config setting you can change to allow it still (in config.ini) (because we knew there would be https://xkcd.com/1172/)

I had *thought* something was going wrong in my Lazy Bastard run! This confirms it finally.

It does ... and it doesn't ;)

It only gives you the materials back for the rocket park the silo is currently producing and not for the rocket parts that are already finished. The later would be quite complicated since you would have to differentiate between rocket parts which were produced by the productivity bonus and those which were not.
