Got a very minor issue to report here, didn't see a thread up on it just yet.

I was flying around Sindrian territory for a bit, picking fights with some independents for some phat l00t. Went back to the Command & Control station for some repairs, paid about 50 supplies and got my fleet patched up. Then I noticed something a bit funky -- I was able to repair again, after having just done a repair. Did that, and the following loop happened:



Any time I head to another menu section (or close the interface entirely) and then come back to this menu, I am given another chance to "repair" my fleet for zero supplies. As far as I know it's purely cosmetic -- I can't see any way to abuse it, and I am free to quit out or ignore the option. Still figured it'd be worth reporting this little quirk, though.

No mods loaded, only thing changed was a save file edit when I started out to give me a bit more cash and a positive reputation with the pirates (for a custom start).

Same thing happens for me, but so far it only seems to be Sindria.

I've noticed the same thing, actually. Had it happen a bunch of times here (over a span of several hours), but nowhere else yet.

I've observed the same thing, though I've noticed being given 0 supply repairs as an option in multiple places.

Noticed something else that's weird at this station: Every time I choose "Trade, or hire personnel" now I get a message saying "Sindria price update" in the background. Didn't happen before, and it seems to have replaced the zero supply repair issue as I can no longer do that. I'll see if I can get another game save up.

EDIT: Done! Click me, again! Be sure to check out the Intel after spamming a few rounds of this, as it seems to be behaving a bit oddly too. Everything appears to be related to the "Recreational Drugs" item, though there are some other entries coming up to the top too. Waiting a day seems to fix the repeating thing from repeating. Yes, I just typed that.

PS. These issues may also apply to other stations, I've just been hovering around here for a while as a lot of my enemies are here.

I have a similar bug, but I have the ability to fully repair and regain combat readiness for free, at any station. No mods, no save file edits. It started out at first cosmetic, but now it's for real. Save file available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6CFSPVCNwIYLXVtSTFlVVFnZUE/view?usp=sharing

Started happening a couple hours ago, but as soon as it turned into free repairs I decided it was time to report.

I just found how to duplicate the bug; in the save file, if the dagger wing is mothballed, repairs are free (Try repairing the damaged Paragon), but if the dagger wing is not mothballed, repairs cost supplies like normal.
