Misfires of the scanner when doors close

  • Branch: Preview Branch Version: Windows Pending

Okay, I've been trying to figure out this issue for a bit and I'm seeing a lot of glitchiness for the bunker doors and scanners.  Save attached.

It starts out alright, the way you'd expect.  But I was trying to document the scanners misbehaving, so, I take this snip and save it off in another window...


When I come back, the doors keep closing/opening.  The game was paused.  Oddly enough they won't have this effect when the game is first reloaded, only when you've unpaused after loading the game and then pausing again.


However, if you don't play with the timer causing issues and pause not working (aka: normal 1x speed continuously), the space scanner for asteroids will very briefly lose knowledge of the incoming asteroid.  It's a very fast ping to inactive and back to active.  However, this starts the doors opening again, as you'd expect.  I can't figure out why the scanners are briefly resetting.  It happens (afaik) at exactly the moment the bunker doors are completely closed.

The save should have this position in place, but in case it's not, the meteor scanner is on the right side of the telescope.

EDIT:  Apparently, there's some quantum events still happening.  Don't watch the scanner and it works correctly...

Load save file. Watch process.

I am on the live branch as of 5/8/2020

I am on the live branch and tracked down similar behavior.  I have scanners detecting incoming meteors (sending green) then flipping back to safe (sending red) when the doors are closed.  My understanding is they will not send red until the detected meteors are gone.  I've attached a screen shot to demonstrate.  

I have three scanners each connected to filter gate then connected to OR gates. As you can see, the bottom left scanner was sending green (incoming) but now wants to send red again even though the meteors haven't yet hit.  This results in cycling the doors unexpectedly and resulting damage.
