I might try that, bit extreme though. I do worry one of my tweaks might have broken things. I added several waves of ever tougher drones to Akua - as I've done many times before. However, I wonder if something's changed so this won't work anymore. This particular bit of the .yaml seems the same as ever, but the same change that worked previously might not be working now. That said, I've often experienced a Drone Wave delay on planets that use the "4 = night + turret trigger" option. The other options are far more straight-forward and trigger more reliably. I've had no crashes of late, I did check out the Space Drone Base - basically a tweaked Thermica Station by the look of it. However, this drone base seems to neither launch drones - like the drone Carriers do - nor replenish the four Plasma Drones in orbit, at least not yet. Seems very much WIP to me. Scoob.
