Thanks for the report(s). The main issue is: setting direction of a ghost after creation currently isn't supported - so I'm not surprised that it crashes when you do so.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

It's now fixed for the next version of 0.17 by disallowing writing direction on entity ghosts. There's a to-do to make ghosts work the same as standard entities (let you rotate them, change settings, and so on) for one of the future versions of the game and when that happens the Lua API will allow setting direction on them again.

So both 75594 and 75595 are "duplicate" for now because core issue is "entity ghost lua set direction" not supported. Second one is not yet marked as duplicate. Is it intentional so Dominik makes note that this will need to be fixed in future?

I'll move the other report into duplicates. The desync will most likely be fixed when support to set direction on ghosts is implemented. Most likely the reason it desyncs is it's not doing the normal rotation logic because it's a ghost and all of the pipe logic expects that ghosts don't rotate after creation.
