I've only been playing a few days. Everything has been stable, no bugs noticed, till today. I spent last night and this morning smoothing out and building up Terrain around my little space lab. I noticed when these windstorms would could, debris would kill my lil 'Neer, and blow away any loose materials I hadn't locked down. I decided to remedy that by creating a vast dome/wall type structure around my space lab. On top of building the wall to prevent the storms from damaging my space lab, I smoothed out all the terrain within the structure so that my rover and 'Neer could run around with no hiccups[a bit of OCD on my part really]. Then from within the "dome" I tried to dig my own path to the cave I had discovered far outside my space lab area, and then proceeded to smooth it out so I could roll in there with my rover[it was bad ass, I wish the game had a snapshot feature to share with you the awesomeness that had been built].
A storm then came in, I hopped into my little capsule in the center of my lab, saved my progress. After the storm passed I Quit to Desktop. I went to go get coffee. I came back and booted the game up from my save point. It was as if I had first landed on the planet. All the Space Lab gear was there, the Printer, The Tethers from my journeys, the Vehicle Bay, The Shuttle, The Smelter, the Rover[however it was now detached from the Space lab and tossed on its side]... but everything else I had "sculpted" was gone. No dome, no smooth lab floor, no tunnel to the cave. Even all the materials I had harvested from the immediate area had come back[mostly Organics and Resin].
I didn't even exit my capsule. I just panned around with the camera to confirm what I was seeing, exited, and then registered here at the forums to help.
I completely understand it's Pre-Alpha, so i'm not upset. I mean, I was building something pretty awesome and i'm disappointed it's been eradicated, but this is pre-alpha, something was gonna bite me in the ass eventually.
I guess i'll head over to the feature suggestion area now for other things I'd like to see. thanks so much for what you've created thus far, it's amazing.
