No power, fixed after reload
« on: November 05, 2013, 12:46:33 PM »

I haven't tried replicating this yet, but wanted to mention it despite that, since I haven't seen it posted.

When I was playing my first game, I had a solar storm which disrupted power.  I don't know how long solar storms last, so I didn't think too much about it when there were "no electricity" lightning bolts flashing on everything for a few days, and then more days... but eventually raiders came and wiped everyone out easily because I had only one pistol, and my turrets were down.  During the battle, I went to a turret and clicked the "use power" button off, then right back on, and suddenly the turret started working!  Was too late to save the colony though.  I reloaded from a save, from after the raiders arrived, but before they started attacking, and surprisingly all my electrical equipment was working.

Edit: I just realized this should be in the "Bugs" forum.  Would a mod mind moving it?

if you still have that save game (where the power off/on during the electrical storm can be replicated) feel free to attach it... :)

Loading the save I had made the problem disappear.  I'm not sure if the save would be useful.  To be honest, I'm not sure I remember which one it is, and I can't open it and check the electrical status to find out. ;)
