I didn't know if there would be an announcement or not, I've had some support tickets closed with the problem fixed and I don't recall seeing an announcement in the sim news or anything, but it was a totally different kind of problem. Thanks Jevon, for your quick reply... You always seem to answer my questions. Thanks.
Well, just to let everyone know....I went ahead and tried to build a door in my ship while traveling in hyperspace and....wait for it.... everything worked just fine. Hooray! Actually had to build twice, I failed the first time, but the blast door is in now. Yahoo!
