    I enabled the Demo mod in the Mods folder and when the map loaded, the following exception was being written to the log file over and over. In addition, the map never fully loads. It show "Loading Structures 6%" and just hangs there.

    MissingMethodException: void Eleon.Modding.IGui.ShowGameMessage(string,int)

    They seem to be due to lines that call modApi.GUI.ShowGameMessage()

    When I comment out those line, the exception no longer appears and the game loads normally. Is there any way to resolve it? Should I file it as a bug?

    I'm having this same issue. I'll file a bug report.

    (BTW coming into a space playfield without your CV getting any cycles to instantiate really isn't the best way to experience the void...)

    Just took a look to this and it functions fine for me

    Make sure you start the client without EAC

    Hi Taelyn,
    I was unaware that running with EAC disabled was required (it isn't called out in the yaml or on the starting page of the \Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Extras\Modding Doc html ... adding that if required would help noobs like me) but I was already running with EAC disabled.

    I just did a steam verify on my game files and created a new vanilla game without changing anything other than the name of the game, watched my pod hit the ground and said "no thank-you" to Robinson and exited. Then I updated the "None" to "Client" in the yaml and opened the game. I still get the problem. Is there anything I can do on my side to help you isolate the issue?

    There was a brief flash of a dialog that looked like the continue or email us one but it disappeared and hung at 8% structures. I killed that and inside the log (I cleared the log so it was totally clear) it starts...

    Following up ... I tried doing a rebuild of the solution. There appear to be two issues (unrelated) that you may want to look at ..

    1. the problem described above occurs with the dll that ships and is recovered when doing a verify- this is the dll that has the missing method issue .. if you rebuild it goes away, but...

    2. When you open the VS solution in VS2019 community edition and rebuild there is a failure due to issues in the Properties\Build Events which tries this as a post-build command-

    1> DemoModClient -> C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Mods\DemoMod\DemoModSln\DemoModClient\bin\Debug\DemoModClient.dll
    1> The system cannot find the file specified.
    1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Current\Bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets(5575,5): error MSB3073: The command "del /F /Q ..\..\..\..\DemoModClient.dll
    1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Current\Bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets(5575,5): error MSB3073:
    1>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Current\Bin\Microsoft.Common.CurrentVersion.targets(5575,5): error MSB3073: copy /B /Y C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Mods\DemoMod\DemoModSln\DemoModClient\bin\Debug\DemoModClient.dll ..\..\..\.." exited with code 1.

    del /F /Q ..\..\..\..\$(TargetName).dll
    copy /B /Y $(TargetPath) ..\..\..\..

    ...this says go up four levels and delete the published dll but it looks like both the delete and copy are actually occurring at the top level of the project (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Mods\DemoMod\DemoModSln\DemoModClient) as that is where the dll is being copied to and subsequent builds succeed without any warning errors. Sandboxed?

    I manually moved the rebuilt copy into \Mods\DemoMod and it works as you describe. Not sure why del/copy in build event is failing but for some reason the relative path is being cut off two levels below where you are expecting.
