Old Ship Saves
I've been working on a Warhammer Templars Cruiser for about a week now; new patch out and blam. Can't load it anymore, that's a lot of good work lost. I'm very dissapointed with this decision that old ships can't be compatible simply becuase it doesn't make sense - why? There's been no change in building aspects, modular controls or nothing. In fact, seeing as I bought this game at the very start of it's steam life I have a lot of good ship I intended to upload to the workshop. But, alas I cannot seeing as you've ruined the loading system.
Very disappointed in losing some good ships, stations and work.

Please fix this seeing as it's a terrible implement (i'm sure many older fans like myself will agree).

While I do have similar problems, I can absolutely understand the Devs choice to handle it this way.

LT stated that converting the old .bins to .ships would consume too much time - time they'd invest on gameplay. Gameplay has higher value, than converting those files.
You can just rebuild your ships. Time that is invested in converting however, is lost developing time in major gameplay patches.

They had to redo the whole saving system for the workshop. Yes, they could have done it (possibly) but it would take too much time to be worth it.

Don't forget. This is alpha. Everything you do, you might lose it. We don't even know if the ship file might be changed again. It's a possibility. I had a few ships that were WIP that had over 24h+ work on them and I lost them. It's a shame but it's part of an alpha. If you can't deal with it, then you might want to wait for the final release.

Yeah you have a good point, it just really annoyed me at the time haha. It makes sense now but I just don't see change happening at a rate at which makes the game interesting for myself anymore. There's no new parts, places or actions. I think I will take on board Dakili's comment and just wait for release.
Thanks guys.
