    Hello, So after purchasing the game and updating it to Update 1.181.0 the Major Update with optimisations. I built a mining ship and I wanted to connect it to a station so the ores could be extracted and refined automatically, but the connector doesn't work. It worked before the update but after It doesn't, both connectors stay completely white, and due to the update I believe, there isn't an 'x' on the connectors.

    I have tried many solutions posted, most say about permissions and owners, when they are both set to 'me' and 'share with my faction', I have turned them off and on, changed the rotation, tried them in multiple words, creative and survival, I have re-built them, changed the settings e.g. Collect All, I have tried multiple ships to attach to them, and NOTHING. I will struggle to progress the game further as I refuse to do it manually EVERY time I go mining.

    Setup:
    Ship > connector > connected to station's connector > station's connector connected to cargo container.

    Please Help!
    Thank You In Advance.

    Yeah, this is annoying as hell. I can't progress any further. Two other threads about it here and here. And a reddit thread here. They released a hotfix earlier today, but it didn't seem to fix this issue. I hope they fix it soon.

    You don't even need to use the search function to find 5 of those threads on the first page. Just sayin'...

    Temporarily I suggest to go back to version 1.180. From the game's property menu on steam, beta tab, in the list select 1.180

    Can confirm this is an issue. I just tried docking with my small ship, and nothing. Landing gear still work though.

    EASY WORKAROUND: Place a rotor between the conveyor and the connector. Someone mentioned this on the Steam Community page. Worked for me! I hope it works for others as well.

    Yes I too am having issues with connectors. I started out with a lander, merge block connected to armor blocks. After trying connecting out of that lander, no connection, all white lights. I then moved the connector to a station, built away from the lander, still same issues. Connector is powered, ownership in my name and shared with faction, but never engages or turns yellow to indicate "ready to lock". Any ETA on this fix yet?
    --- Automerge ---
    After a small update today my connectors are now able to engage and lock successfully. Thank you!
