    READ FIRST: For a proper testing procedure and bug reporting, we recommend the following preparations and workflows:
    1. Go to your steam library and VERIFY your game files!
      Steam > Library > Right-click Empyrion in the list > Properties > Local Files > Verify Locale Data
    2. Make sure you are NOT using a custom config!
      Go to this folder and check if only three files are there: Config_Example.ecf, EGroupsConfig.ecf and TraderNPCConfig.ecf: ..Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Configuration
      Remove or delete any other file as long as testing with the release candidates!

    3. Avoid resuming any pre-Release Candidate savegame!
      There is a chance that changes we made do not translate to older savegames. Especially for bugs concerning terrain, loot and other playfield configs.
      Best practice: if you run into an issue with a savegame that was started BEFORE a RC has been released, please re-test the issue in a fresh new RC savegame again!

    4. Additional Routine: Delete the GAME CACHE when trying to reproduce a bug!
      The game cache saves some presets and may be source of a false positive reports or even be part of the problem. To make sure we have all the infos, please check the following folder when trying to reproduce a but and make a note in your report if the bug still happens AFTER clearing the cache: ..\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Saves\Cache
    5. When running into a ‘Continue or Quit’ (CoQ) message,
      5a. Please go to the LOGS folder ( ...\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Logs ) , then find the folder with the HIGHEST number, pick the most recent .log file and create a compressed/zip copy of it & attach the compressed copy of the logs to your report!
      5b. Add a description of what you did the last minute BEFORE the CoQ happens. Sometimes a Screenshot sent in with the CoQ is helpful as well!
      5c. If you are playing on a server, do the same, but we might also need the full LOG files form the server.

If you haven an issue with a Base or Vessel with temperature, radiation, colliders, can-not-dock, o2 or plants not growing or anything that happens without anything else in the game world is directly affected, please ADD THE BLUEPRINT or the SAVEGAME and add an info if SP or MP! If you want to add your savegame, please upload your savegame to a cloud host (like dropbox, google,..) and add a LINK to your report

    2. If you having issues with something missing from your planet, spawned in the wrong place or anything that keeps being broken after resuming a savegame PLEASE UPLOAD the savegame to a cloud host (like dropbox, google etc) and add a LINK in your bug report

    3. If you CRASHED with a message "Continue or Quit" on a SP or MP game, PLEASE ALWAYS add the corresponding CLIENT.LOG file! You can find it in the /LOGS folder with the appropriate version name (e.g. version folder with 1022 is for version 6.x build 1022).
    Right click on the Client log & place your mouse cursor over 'Send to' create a compressed copy of it then drag & drop a copy in your reply box or use the upload a file option. Please do NOT copy the contents of the Client.log files to this thread!

    IF you are the server owner, please zip the corresponding LOGS folder of your server and attach it to the bug-report as well!

    4. If you CRASHED back to desktop (empyion.exe does not work anymore) do the same as in (3.).

    5. If you game FREEZES (locked up), please make a note that this is a FREEZE (not a "Crash"). Add the same files as in 3. and maybe add a dxdiag as well.

    Mode: (Default Survival)
    Location: (Singleplayer)

    SEED-ID: 481756

    Reproducibility: (maybe)
    Severity: (Minor)

    Type: (Gameplay)

    Summary: When using the chain saw you need to release the button very quickly or else you run the chance of shooting those logs off into space
    for me it's easy to see happen mainly because my reaction time is slower. But I have had to chase the logs a number of times because they shot of away from you.

    I had 1 log get shot off so far I gave up looking for it. One other shot straight up never did see it land anyplace.

    Edit: Ok it's not my reaction speed. What I have noticed is that logs do this little dance (Road Runner came to mind) on the ground before it shoots off in what ever direction you were facing when the final cut hit the tree. It does happen every tree I cut down just as different speeds the logs shoots off at.

    Can you try uninstalling empyrion entirely from within Steam ?
    Go to steam library right clcik on Empyrion & uninstall.
    Then go to:
    steamapps\common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival

    & delete everything but the 'Saves' folder & reinstall through steam again ?

    How old is the save game ?
    When making a new game did you also empty the cache folder for the server ?
    Have you deleted the cache folder for the server you are using from steamapps\common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Saves\Cache ?

    How old is the save game ?
    Minutes, got to level 3 picking pickables when we first discovered the first valley on the first seed.
    and again minutes on the second go at it got to level 2 though picking pickables.

    When making a new game did you also empty the cache folder for the server ?
    Yes.

    Have you deleted the cache folder for the server you are using from steamapps\common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Saves\Cache ?
    yes, it was the cache folder inside of saves.

    Do you have a video from this? I tried to recreate this effect, but were not successful. Possibly the logs "bugged" in the ground and were repelled from it?

    Toolbar bug is still around. Took me about 5-10 minute messing with chat to reproduce it on new Akua-Omicron single player creative game.

    Basically just messed around with chat on SP creative.. opened chat (with period), typed lines, hit enter on empty line to close it.. hit period, let the chat window expire.. kept doing this randomly, and tested from time to time if I could open T2 drill mode selection. About 5-10 minutes, and I no longer could use the toolbar (right-click failed to open the mode selection).

    Before this I reproduced it same way in about 5 minutes on my MP server save - but since it was from phase 6 I think, went to SP creative to test if I can do the same in new game - which I could.

    I cannot seem to be able to edit my original post to include the Dropbox link, this form is claiming spam behavior or the content i am trying to submit contains inappropriate content.

    so here is the zip.

    No I don't sorry. Nor do I have ability to make videos. I will try a different seed and see if it's doing it there. It might be me but not sure :)

    Edit:

    I started a new default game does it still happen to me yes, every time? no! But when it did happen it was like it gets nicked by the moving chain animation.
    Oh well might loose a bit of weight chasing flying logs, OH NO! I've become my dog
