Thank you, yes. In final frustration I did just that, losing over 6 hours of progress. And that at least got me unstuck. Played for an hour more with no problems.
I seem to remember another time when this happened after a big update. IIRC, it was due to doing too many saves just jumping out of the ship and back in again (auto save?–I can never remember which is which).
Seeing as how my save at a building post (manual save?) was six hours previously, I did a whole lot of the jumping ship saves --six hours worth, and without logging out of the game once during that time.
NOTE: I also, during the trying to fix it stage, tried a number of times to reset the graphics to the lowest template, hit apply, got the message to log out to make it stick, logged out, logged back in, went through the loooooong loading, only to find that the changes didn’t save.
I don’t usually jump in right after a game has a huge update like this. I usually wait until the inevitable bugs get sorted a bit, but I love my NMS so can’t resist.
Ah! I had also recently uploaded my base. Well now I don’t have one, so…
