Clicking on “Edit” in the battle deployer reliably crashes GSB. I can create new ships without problems.
On the load screen is a file called “_temp_deployment” which reappears if i delete it then goto the new ship screen.
Going to the new ship screen resets my deployment pattern,
seems that this is a repeatable bug from 1.16 - “CRASH WHEN ENTERING SHIP EDITOR
PROBLEM: After selecting the ‘edit ship’ option from the deployment screen, the game will crash.
SOLUTION: Run the game as an admin.”
Solution worked for me.
