Gateways bugged, look activated, but stay dim, Windows10.


Recommended Posts

Windows 10, PC, Steam, Keyboard and mouse.

I've activated 4 of the gateways on Glacio, and they did the usual animation and I can see the odd stone and travel to other nodes.

However, on activating 4 nodes, 2 stay dim, even though I can interact with the odd stone and travel to activated nodes, but then cant travel back because it thinks that node is dim. Again, I can travel FROM the dim node, so the gateway is active.

3 other side notes:
- On the broken gateways, I can still see the vertical blue line traveling up from the gateway as if it's INactive, but I can see the odd stone as f it was active.
- When I reload the save, if I approach a broken gateway, as I approach it looks as it it is NOT active, and I can see the pillars and the power sockets, but when I get close enough, it changes to the active gateway with the odd stone.
- One of the gateways that is broken, it looks as if there are 2 gateways stacked on top of each other? The architecture of the structure looks strange, unlike the others.

Can I reload planets? I've almost got the achievement, I don't really want to start again if there is a risk of this happening again.

Thanks

This is happening to me as well. Windows 10, PC, Steam, KB+mouse, has occurred in two saves so far. The trigger is unknown, but may have something to do with activating gateways in rapid succession. My most recent broken game is extra-interesting since I'm

This is a known bug where the gateways on Galcio seems to have duplicated, though from what I've seen it should have only happened to saves that existed before the Creative Update.

For the most part if you activate both gateways they should function as normal!

Thanks for taking the time to reply Marc, appreciate that. I downloaded the game end of October so it would have been pre-creative update. I haven't seen in the patch notes that it was fixed - https://forum.systemera.net/topic/54866-the-creative-update-november-15th-2019/

Maybe I'll try a new game and hope for the best?

Thanks again.

I've looked closer at the OP. I haven't observed duplicate gateways in my saves (and the one I linked was started post-Creative update)., just an inability to teleport. Should I move this to a different thread?

Based on what I've seen so far it shouldn't happen in a new save!

I had someone report this last week - would you mind emailing me a copy of your save so we can take a look?
If you're not on PC and can't send your save, screenshots/videos would be super helpful!
You can reach me at Support@SystemEra.net

I've got the same thing..

are you using saves from before the creative update?  someone said that could be a issue but I can't confirm it..  any updates on the problem? thanks!

UPDATE:

Yes, I WAS using a save created BEFORE the Creative Update.

I took the advice and created a new save, even though the patch notes didn't explicitly mention the issue was fixed. On my new save, the issue WAS fixed. I haven't explored and activated all planets yet, but I headed to Glacio very early on when I got a large Rover, and activated the whole planet, no issue.

So it may be coincidence, and luck, but from my experience, and on the suggestion from SES_MARC, it may be worth creating a new save. I did work for me. But again, this is one experience, not a scientific analysis with hundreds of saves.

Good luck space people.

Watch your oxygen.

Chris.

I was so frustrated with this problem that I left the game for about 6 months. I just resumed, yes I'm using a pre-creative save, and I still have the problem. I'm not clear on your solution. Do I have to start all over again?
