I think it has run out of materials... same thing happened to me and I have no idea how to get the materials for it :P

anyone miss were shipyards were like car delaerships. were all you had to do was buy when there instock instead of having to wait a few hours to get a single ship.

ANy new info on this? I just flew to shipyard to build a construction ship and it has a carrier its already building but its been stuck at 50%. the ship is sitting there half built.

The shipyard has run out of materials, and with trading broke atm you have to either:-

a) Get the mats there yourself.

b) Edit the materials needed into your save file.

I've just edited my savefile to get an Arawn built but the bug I have now is that my ships being built are not assigned a captain (They used to before I finished the campaign on 1.16)

It also has no dock icon so I can't ferry one there myself, and coms don't work, because hey ! no one is onboard lol.

I will email this to Egosoft as I have been in contact with a dev via email.

I'll keep ya posted,

Cheers

WEll i did some searching and figured it out. I edited teh ship yard to complete the huge destoryer, then i had my ship build. Same thing stuck at 0, so i editited it again. ships is complete. Now same as you. No docking icon, no captain....ship is stuck there.....What now? lol

How can i repair my capital ship? the shipyard wont let me finalize my order and the engineer on board of my cap ship wont repair anything on it. right now my ship is just floating there with everything destroyed including the engines.

hmm, i alt tabbed out of the game to type that comment, eat dinner. came back alt tabbed back into game and now my construction ship has a docking icon...odd.
slpstang02 Nov 23, 2013 @ 4:20pm 
and i docked and put a captain on board and its now flying out of the hangar. Try it out man see if it works. let it sit and give it time, alt tab out of game and come back in..maybe it will fix it.

Happened to me as well answering your earlier post, obviously a graphic glitch. Not auto adding a pilot if the biggest problem b/c if it isn't your ship in the dock, you have to edit the savefile, no other way out.

Edit: Bit of a waste of time building cap ships atm, their combat is so iffy, they need a large AI patch. I'm using the Manual Command Extension mod just to make them usable atm.

i just hired a captain, landed on the ship and told him to work there. No editing needed. You can go into your cap ship info menu and select your defense officer and have him buy new drones when they are gone and also change to defend or attack enemies.
