Yes, NPC stations all have Engineers on the crew and working fine.w.evans wrote:Hey Simoom,
did not notice that at all. Thanks for pointing it out. Will look into it, but will have to wait until the weekend.
Have you noticed if NPC stations show all working entities when you're not around?
I have one station (the plot Integrative URV Forge) that has an Engineer that's working fine (doesn't disappear when I leave zone), but so far all other stations I built, the Engineer would disappear the moment I leave zone.
One thing to note is that for the Integrative URV Forge, I only assigned all the crew once construction was fully finished (all stages), whereas for all the other stations I have only built the initial stage for the moment. I seem to recall that in early versions of XR (before the game filled player stations with random NPC's), the crews you assign used to actually work at whichever dock you dropped them off at. Now with random NPC generation, the player station crew seems to be not actually physically present at a specific location on the station... but I wonder if they actually are (at an unspecified dock), and may be my Engineers are disappearing because the game attempts to place them at a dock that hasn't been built yet.
Just a wild guess. Lemme know if you need my save game file and I'll upload it.
