That's great, thank you! Sorry to cause all this havoc to everyone else who just has an innocent, sensible design. Can you do a purge on all unsaved designs and media referring to them at the same time? I think a few have accumulated while we were testing this, built and unbuilt.

Would also be very grateful if you could save Robert when everything has settled down. I'm not sure if his predicament is related to today's update: it happened just after I logged back in.

I am glad to work out this issue now. Then we can sail onward safely from here.

All servers will be restarted when the update is ready. That will purge any bad data from memory.

I'll be on line as soon as the servers let me. I can fix Robert then, if needed.

All my textures have been replaced by some kind of default metal.

I cleared my cache, and afterwards all my new-style ships were like this. Only the Zap-o-matic was spared, possibly because we finalized it after the texture update?

Some of my designs are now difficult to use, with invisible doors, blocked screen displays where I used an alpha texture, etc. Hope it's fixable!

I am now almost certain that this affects every ship built before the update. I have been onboard several people's ships with fabric floors and wooden hulls.

To reproduce, just clear your cache.

On the custom textures: Maybe a way to still utilize larger custom textures would be having the standard 256x256 texture that gets sent over on the design for other players to see, but have a larger version stored for yourself that loads in place of the smaller texture, perhaps from a secondary file. Maybe have an option for other clients to download the higher-res textures for a specific ship if they want?

I changed the default palette of textures. Perhaps it somehow affected existing designs; it shoudn't have. I'll find out where the problem is and fix it.

This bug is fixed. It requires a server restart and you will have to clear your spacecraft design cache after that. The servers are building now with the fix.

Designs that appear broken will return to normal. No further action is needed to update them.
