This poor Himal Refuge is confused. Its shots are blocked by its own body. Its beams flash hopefully but never make it out.


I am lonely! I miss the beams that once were beamed to me!

This incident makes no appearance in the debug log for this session.

No Himals were harmed in the making of this post. Though I did blow this station up shortly afterwards.
Curious about real-life aliens?

Maybe there is an asteroid who blocked exactly at the center of Station, perhaps.
It was the same when you trying shooting at the center of asteroid too, so maybe it was the problem.

 Yep, Amteloletom’s got it right. It’s not that infrequent an occurrence, either. It’s definitely a bug, just not the one you thought you were reporting, heh.

Mod prefixes: 0xA010 (registered) and 0xDCC8 (miscellaneous)

Of all the things I’ve lost in life, I miss my mind the least. (I’m having a lot more fun without it!)

I have seen the same thing, also with a Himal station. Unsure whether it is an overlapping asteroid as suggested, or a problem with this particular model. It doesn't occur every time.
