Grab the temp.brd out of the editor folder

Then the ship is lost to the four winds.


Next time: Backups. Many. MANY backups.

Save early, save often.

I feel as though this is a lost art, something cultivated by an earlier generation of games that is slowly fading...

Personally, I keep the Blockade Runner saves folder open and every half hour or so I copy the .brd I am working on into the main BR folder.

Granted I haven't lost a ship yet, but I am prepared.

dang it I am that older generation!! I back my files up every week, I had just finished a massive construction addition to the ship. I'm not sure if this autosave feature is a blessing or a curse, it seems to be the thing doing the damage

I've had a few hiccups with the AS as well. Remember my post about a month back when I lost two hours on the internals of the Traecha? I found the autosave file. It overwrote a completely different ship while autosaving. Check your other vessels, you might find the work at the expense of something else.

I think it gets confused when you load a ship and then load another ship without first rebooting the game, and ends up autosaving the new ship over the old ship you were looking at/working on before hand.

We have reworked the autosave which will allow you to set the number of backups you wish  to have for that specific ship. It will then save over those ships in a loop.

Someone (Scotty?) Mentioned to me Recuva, although it was too late for me, it might not be for you. Try it.

Definitely use recuva! it saved me my borderlands save files, minecraft map files, even some steam based .SAV files (usually hard to recover)
