Hello,

Add an antenna and make sure you own the antennaand the control block.

I know how to build them but since the update it does not work anymore thats why im asking.

Could also be a power issue.
I have had no issue with remote control since the update so if it is a bug I don't knwo about it (that doesnt mean there isn't one).
The alternative is user error so that is my default assumption.

I tried rebuilding the Antenna on my large ship and also on my small ship and the control button is still greyed out. When i place a cockpit onto my small ship i can control the remote block on the same ship. If i use a Control panel i cant do this. So there is definetely something wrong

Could you try to go into Quickstart and just try to build a small drone just to see if it works? Since even i new worlds it does not work for me

Sure. Check to be sure you have broadcasting on your suit enabled though. If it is turned off you can't remote things.

started a brand new world, made a small ship drone, was able to control it by accessing it's menu both directly and remotly.

You need to access the drone's terminal from a cockpit to be able to remote control it. And you need antennas on the drone and controller and the drone one owned by you. You cant remote control using control panels.

Umm no. you don't need to be in a cockpit to remote control. You just need to have broadcasting on and be within antenna range (direct or relayed)

1. You can Access them from Control Panels and besides that i also tried from cockpit to remote it
2. I have all these things.

I cant build antennas or programmable blocks. They are all gone since the last patch. Someone has a solution for it?

the best solution maybe to put the ship and or the world up for us to see clearly whats wrong. Loues.S.Cat and myself have tried this and works.

the more eyes that look at the problem can find a fix faster then a single set. :) im not saying youre incompitant or anything, but i tend to overlook even the simplist things. getting someone else to look will find errors better.

Ye for sure i added you just join me
BRRM Sep 25, 2015 @ 10:06am 
sorry not a good time. im about to head. :P but what i meant is you can publish your creation/world and give us a link to it. :) if youre ok with it.
