How is the scanner losing upgrades? Do you uninstall an upgraded scanner, transfer it to another ship, then reinstall the scanner on the new ship and you are not offered the active scanner when you use it?

If so, that is because the scanner upgrade is a virtual item that remains on the old ship. If you buy a new scanner for the old ship, it can use the upgrade immediately. You will get this problem in any mod that lets you change ships, not just Playership Drones only. If you want your upgrades to stick to the item (and not the ship that bought the upgrade) so that you can transfer the scanner and its upgrades from ship to ship, you need to alter the scanner item itself in some way (instead of anchoring a virtual item to a ship). Use either hidden charges (similar to the vial of thioseptal) or item enhancements as used by reactors/engines. I set and checked for charges for dual mode weapons in Items Pack 912, and I enhanced a miscellaneous item in Auton Assembly Hangar. Browse through my mods if you need examples. Note that if you go the item enhancement route, the item will be worth more.
Download and Play in 1.7 Beta...

I figured out a work around. You are correct about it using virtual items. Before making the upgrades only show up at the mining colony I had roms for upgrades. I had them commented out. So I reinstated them so that when you buy the upgrade at the colony you get the upgrade rom as well. So you can reinstall the upgrades when you change ships. WillyTheSquid should be uploading the patch to Xelerus soon.

Yes you can process prom refuse into fuel rods. I don't know why you are having issues with fuel use. However the fuel use becomes less and less noticable as you improve your reactor. It should use fuel all doing all three processes. Could you maybe take a few screen shots before and after with notes on how much you smelted etc so I can see? I will do testing to see if it isn't working for me.

Did extensive testing with the fuel use and have not had any issues with it, before and current. If Twir is still having fuel issues, then he's either modded some numbers on his end without remembering/telling us, or another mod he has installed is affecting it.

Just updated, and the mismatched Parentheses bug is back
Edit: It looks like my upgraded reactor fixed the free smelting bug

The deluxe packer autons don't want to automatically pick up ore. When I invoke the Collect Ore command, the auton moves forward a bit, stops, and says that no ore is in range even if ore is visible on the screen. I'm playing with a ton of other mods so maybe one of them is causing a problem but it doesn't seem like that would cause such a weird bug.
