    Summary:
    when you point at your SV and press Y, game turns off power to your base
    Description:
    I don't know if this is a bug, but when I park my SV in my hangar and point at it, P key brings up device info for the SV, and Y key turns off power to the BA (or CV). I expected the Y key to turn off power to the SV if I am looking at the SV.
    Workaround is to jump in the cockpit, press Y, then jump out, or use the power switch on the P menu.
    Steps to Reproduce:
    1)
    2)
    3)

    It was always so that you have to be seated IN the Vehicle when turning it off with the Y-Key..
    Using the P-Menu while pointing at it gives you only the way to SWITCH it off.

    The way it has always worked for me,

    P key pulls up the structure you are looking at, if the structure you are looking at is out of range it pulls up the structure you are standing on/touching instead (if you own it or public).

    The Y key always operates the structure I am standing on/touching.

    So if my SV is parked on my base and I want to switch the SV on/off I have to either
    1) Stand on the SV then press Y.
    2) Enter the SV then press Y.
    3) Look at (or enter) the SV and use the P menu.
