Archives » Known Issue: Captured bandit droids being deleted
A bug has been raised about captured droids being incorrectly deleted.

If you capture a bandit droid, and then you leave the square it came from (causing bandits to despawn/respawn), then your captured droid will also be despawned.

If you have captured droids, I recommend until next sync, do not leave the square it was on, otherwise the droid will be deleted. If you need to leave the terrain square for pressing ceremonial issues, if you leave player or faction owned ship or vehicle within the terrain square, despawn/respawn will not be triggered.

This does not affect space bandits or wrecks.

Note: bug has been around forever.


Tracked as http://bugs.swcombine.com/view.php?id=4686
A fix is ready for next sync.

More details on the bug:

- If you get an event in your event log for capturing the droid matching "You have captured the droid NAME (ID)" then you may not be affected by the bug. Your droids probably won't despawn.

- If you did not get an event in your event log for capturing the droid, then you WILL be affected by the bug.

-- This is more likely to happen on Derra/Serocco

- If you can, if you crate and uncrate the droid before leaving the square you will avoid the bug. Note you cannot crate the droid if damaged (which kinda sucks for avoiding this bug).
