The last update deleted half my drones.

Recommended Posts

Are they coming back or do I have to rebuild them all?  The ones I most recently modified remained, the others are gone

That has not happened to me yet. Are they gone from your save folder as well?

I would not close the game while doing the following if I were you, just in case.

To open said folder, on windows: open the start menu, and type in the small box there « %appdata%/../LocalLow », without quotes but with the two full stops in the middle.

From there, select Nimbatus > Nimbatus > Saves, and open the file Slot1.nSave with 7zip, or Winrar. (or Slot2 if you saved on the second save slot, etc.)

Count the number of files with a « .drn » extension at the end (strange strings of letters and numbers). If you have the same number of these as you have drones in your hangar now, I suppose the rest is lost. If you have more « .drn » files than your current number of drones, then I suggest making a copy of that whole Slot1 file and placing it on your desktop while waiting for a developer to pass by.

We have had a couple recent issues with save files emptying themselves spontaneously; perhaps it's related to that.

I only have the same number of drn files as I have drones.  Thanks for the replies.

In the hopes of preventing this fate from befalling anyone else, I hunted around for the location of the Nimbatus save file location. No promises, but backing it up occasionally could mitigate the amount of data you lose. Provided your save locations are the default, the folder location should be as follows:

C:\Users\(user)\AppData\LocalLow\Nimbatus\Nimbatus

(user) is whatever your local user name is. AppData is a hidden file, so you'll have to enable the viewing of hidden items in the view tab. 

Hope that helps!
