Something (sorting glitch?) is causing some items to get two entries in various inventory screens. I currently have barrels of Peligro!, Green Strelkas and White Strelkas each having two entries in a Thor's

I had this bug with green etherium field crystals every play-through I tried. Always there's some Adventurer's Outfitter who shows two listings of those (one is always only one crystal, the other several).

I've had it happen to ammo, which I then can't shoot as the gun won't see it, even after the other ammo is jettisoned.

Does anyone have a save file that reproduces this problem?

Or is the problem transient? (i.e., gets fixed after save/load or undock/dock)

I've seen this in 0.99c with shop inventories. it tended to happen with White Strelkas, for some reason......never seen it in the ship inventory, though. It never made any issues.

I've had it a number of times before (namely in .99c, though that statistic is biased as I had far more playthroughs there than anywhere else), and it didn't seem to cause any problems. Main culprit seemed to be centauri recoilesses for me.

Thank you, I think I found it.

Thor's triggers a bug that sometimes causes items to have a NULL enhancement. Items with a NULL enhancement don't coalesce together with other items, even though they are the same.

I've fixed it in RC7.

Would the fix you have also fix other stations? I am seeing it in Adv.Outfitters and Trading Posts as well...

(I have a save if you still want one)

It could theoretically happen on some devices (non-weapon, non-shields). Or it can happen if some item generated at Thor's were sold to the others.

Either way, if it's not too much trouble, send me the save file so I can look at it. Thanks!

OK, save file on its way via email.

I'm seeing duplications on, as you say: non-weapon, non-shields

There are Titan Drives in the AdvOutfitters where the game is saved, and Cash Cards in the inner system Trading Post in Raziel (a few systems back)

Ah, there's also some plasteel armour at StKs arcology. (Which seems to be something you would normally expect to get regular enhancements like the weapons and shields rather than nulling out like the unmoddable equipment).

They wouldn't have come from a Thor's, but are highly likely to have been scavenged from a corpse. There's a good chance one of them may have had enhancements scraped off by a curse barrel, though.
