I played for about 15-20 more minutes and it still never became buildable.
So it says that my dock is "offline", and when i hover over offline it says it requires power. As you can see there is power going to it.
Ok, so I figured out why its offline. The automation is telling it to go offline, although there is no automation wire connected .I have never had any automation connected to this, and I have other buildings that do not have automation wires connected that run fine. I even deconstructed it and built a new one and it is still inhibited by the automation. I had had no problems previous to this. It just randomly happened.
