Year 7 Day 332 12:21
I just noticed that RM Inventory isn't identifying location entities as it ought to: Ships and facilities and stations containing RM piles are identified only by ID#, not by name or even type of facility ("Docked In Facility: (ID: 215328)"). Ships and facilities and stations all have their proper names in their respective Inventories.

I believe this is intended, in order to prevent people from being able to track an entity across the galaxy by having a unit of duracrete in its cargo hold.

No, Phryss, this is not at all related to the issue of tracking a ship via a piece of Duracrete on it.

Take a look:

---------------------------------------

Lommite

New Pile 58686
Usage: Transparisteel
Quantity: 12 Units
Weight: 96 T
Volume: 12 m3


Location:
Docked In Ship: (ID: 111629)
Sector: Bormea
Galactic Position: Chandrila (51, 66)
System Position: (7, 8)

------------------------------------------------

The ship is thoroughly identified via ID number and located precisely in space--it's just missing its name. So this in no wise prevents my tracking the ship as long as it's got my Lommite on it.

Or consider this:

------------------------------------------------

Lommite

Eric Zahm
Usage: Transparisteel
Quantity: 275 Units
Weight: 2,200 T
Volume: 275 m3


Location:
Docked In Facility: (ID: 228251)
Sector: Farfin
Galactic Position: Abyss-Byss (-3, 16)
Planet Position: Byss (6, 12)
City Position: Port Byss (0, 0)
Ground Position: (15, 6)

----------------------------------------------------

Not only is the Facility not named, but its type--Warehouse, Factory, Mine, what have you--is not specified, as it used to be. Same with Station: No name, no specification as to Trading Station or Shipyard.

At least have the entity name/type for things that can't move (facilities/stations) so I don't have to spend 30 minutes cross checking RM locations with facility locations. This is just a hassle.

That is strange. Someone who can actually play with the code will have to look at this.

Bug fixed on dev, will appear here with the next sync. Sorry for the trouble.
