    Was welding a simple light armor block and noticed it was using 200 Steel Plates and not 25.

    Check to see if you own the welders and are in admin mode. On our server, we discovered a bug where admins who triggered their spacemaster caused welders to "eat" materials like crazy, just chugging them down until the block was completed, regardless of the actual material cost of the block.

    This was a consistent problem that we could instantly trigger or stop by admins switching in and out of admin mode. note - it only applied when the admin in question owned the welder block.

    Long shot, this may not be your problem, but worth checking?

    Interesting. I had triple checked to see if I was in "Creative Mode" when testing this just to ensure it wasn't that. Are you saying it gets "stuck" in Spacemaster? As I have dropped in/out of it for cleanup, and it would explain why there are not 300 posts about it. The welder in question was a "Shared w/ Faction" block.

    I found it strange because the hand welder and large ship welder was not exhibiting the same behavior. You are describing nearly identical behavior, however. I will test it again when I get home later and put that theory to the test for my own sanity.

    any luck with the testing? (also sorry for the delay).

    also to answer your question, the issue happens in survival worlds with spacemaster enabled.

    Hi,

    I was able to reproduce the bug @piratep2r mentioned. While I had creative tools on, it was consuming much more components than needed.

    I made a ticket and someone will look at it soon.

    Thanks!
