    Partial duplicate of my last post in this thread, but posting as a separate bug since it is.

    Game version: Alpha 10.6.0 2697

    Seed: 191108

    Singleplayer, hard difficulty

    Problem: If I copy a game, load the copy, do something to drain the solar capacitor, then leave and load the original save, the solar capacitor will still be drained. If I close and reopen the game between, the capacitor status will be as expected.

    Suspected reason for bug: I think that after leaving to menu, the game is not fully clearing all variables from the old save and is not overwriting them with a newly loaded save.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Extract the attached zip to your 10.6 save directory.
    2. Go ingame and copy the file.
    3. Load the copy.
    4. Note that the solar capacitor has 27% battery left and there is roughly 11:30 left until day.
    5. Queue up 100 SV generators or equivalent in the constructor and timeskip to day to drain the solar capacitor.
    6. Note that the solar capacitor has been drained.
    7. Exit to menu
    8. Load the original save
    9. Note how the solar capacitor now has 0% left, despite being the original, untouched save, as evidenced by the 11:30 left until day.

    I just discovered a second way to reproduce this bug.
    1. Make a copy of the Night Test Backup game
    2. Start a new singleplayer survival game on the advanced wreckage base start.
    3. Turn on the wreckage base.
    4. Wait for the wreckage base to start power cycling since the output is less than consumption
    5. Exit to menu and load the Night Test backup save copy
    6. Note that the battery is fully drained, despite being a fresh copy of the untouched save.
