Is the GPU supposed to use 99% of its dedicated memory all the time?

I am having an issue after the 4-30 update where while playing on a multiplayer server i cannot transfer single crew members between ships. Only the transfer all button works.
Could we please have more effective thrusters? trying to add thrusters for braking on a slimline vessel of a regular modern ship design is pretty much useless, since they require a large enough block that even when the entire ship is made out of titanium (going for a cruiser esque build) does not have enough brake thrust. even when fitting a thruster than runs the length of my ship, filling its interior completely, its break speed is atrocious and no matter which material I use, its always the same amount of thrust for a duplicate sized block. At the moment im not building any larger vessels since the brake thrust needed is not obtainable, meaning these vessels are more likely to dissasemble themselves on a station even when slowing down at 10k.

So. After last update(BETA), client part of game was bugged with:
Trading. I can not buy/sell resorces and goods on stations. Dealing with pilots works correctly;
Damage. I try not all weapons, but railguns have issues. I can land one hit, but all damage after this moment to enemy ship doesnt deal. Sometimes i can hit random found block, but its too hard to find that weal spot. Also, sometimes i can't salvage defeated enemies with salvage guns.

same here....when I change the wares section (example: from weapons to torpedos) then the info windows seems to be overlaying, so on mouse over I can see the edges of the other info windows and I see the info for a torpedo but the mouse over is on a weapon.

Same. Buying or selling some in Stations are crashed. Windows double on Weaponstation cant use +/- and so on. Come on what are you doing with this Patch. We have so many Issues.... Fix it..

4-30 has some intense issues. I have also experienced the Crew (including goods/fighters) Transfer(Gamebreaking) and Railguns not hitting bugs(annoying). There are also problems with the Station building (Solarpowerstation can't be build - Creates(and charges for) a Teslacoil factory instead).
For some reason (but that was in 27/28 already) I found a ship (loaded with crew, weapons and some goods) of my friend playing with me on a LAN server.
He didn't had it in his fleetlist and when i told him, he jumped over (not with the change sector option) and he could control it (still not in his fleetlist)
He transferred all goods & crew and decommisioned it with the buildmode. Afterwards all his fighters(and the bluprints) in his Flagship seem to have disappeared.
By the way, speaking of fighters: it would be so nice to have a blip on the map if you had some in a sector... sometimes you call them back (or forgot to) and a few stayed behind.
Then you have to go through the log and go to all sectors you visited again where they may have been lost in... happened a few times and is annoying as ....
And maybe upgrade the Cargodrones - 1 Unit of Cargo is ridiculous for the price (mine were at 10k Iron - late game so no Iron nearby)
And you can't send fighters per Email - if you drag them out of the Hangar on the Email window they vanish - not to send them as a mail is ok, but return them to the hangar at least.

Finally I do have to mention that we use some mods:MoveUI, ShipScriptLoader and CarrierCommands which should not be affecting those bugs. They also stopped working correctly but that is another story. Yet I would love to see carriercommands and moveui working again, as they did in 4-28... is there an option to roll back for the time being?

Patch is out now, got a little delayed because I found & fixed the cause for the railguns not dealing damage. Hope you don't mind.
chicoguy_2003 May 1, 2018 @ 8:22am

Smokerich May 1, 2018 @ 8:23am

chicoguy_2003 May 1, 2018 @ 8:26am
