[1.20] BUG - Reassigned crew disappear

Post by loubert » Tue, 4. Dec 18, 02:34

My mission-granted station needed a manager, so I sent my Eclipse to dock at it while I stayed in another sector. It had the pilot and one extra crew member. Once the ship landed, I reassigned the extra crew member to work at the station as the manager. The crew member shows up in the information window for the station, is removed from the ship crew list, and the upkeep mission is completed. All is well.

A few minutes later, I instruct the ship to rejoin me/fly somewhere/do anything, thereby undocking. The manager disappears from the station and is not found on the ship. The upkeep mission reappears.

Obviously something is wrong here.

As reported in another thread reporting this issue (which I only saw just now, hours after I posted this thread), when the service crew member-turned-manager is reassigned to his service crew role on the original ship, that crewperson shows back up on the ship. So they're not being fully removed from the ship or something when being moved from service crew to manager. Also, if the Pilot of the ship is used and transfered to be the manager, rather than a service crewmember being used, then everything works fine, no problems. It's only the service crew members (and maybe marines, untested) that disappear when transfered from ship to station as a manager.

Also experienced this. Tern transporter had 3 crew: 1 captain and 2 service crew.

Clicked "Replace pilot with best crewmember" and the pilot is replaced with one of the service crew, but the previous pilot does not get reassigned to the service crew or marines. Crew listed on the ship is now listed (total) as only 2. He's vanished!

Bug:

Not sure if this is intended or not. I attempted to promote crewmembers (to see their full stats) to captain. The current captain did not go back into the crewmember inventory and subsequently dissapeared/was deleted. I attempted this on multiple ships.

Did you open "full crew list" I thought I lost a 5* person when I sent her to work at a ship with max cap already filled, but she was jsut listed under special crew (or something like this) Not among all the other marines/service members.

I think its intentional. The best way is to comm the pilot and tell them to work somewhere else first.

I have the same issue. when i replace a captain that person is lost and the crew shows 1 less person.
guess replacing is more like killing your old captain..

Have an external look around your ship and see if any NPC is hanging on a ship's ladder outside somewhere. Please let us know what you find.
