|Product Version||Beta 2.744 Scourge Industries, Inc|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0024459: Spurious engineer movement orders|
|Description||I have some engineers on Aalst I'm trying to park in the northeast of the map. Thing is, they keep moving off somewhere to the southwest. If there were tachyons on this planet, it would be a real problem.|
The tooltip doesn't say they're decollision orders. What is making them move? Do I have to contact HR about substance abuse?
|Tags||No tags attached.|

||Why the engineers want to go where they do I don't know, but you have Engineers Auto-Work set to On. When that's on, Engineers are autonomous unless you've given them a specific order. In this case, they arrive at the spot you want them in the system and move because they've finished your task, and their own logic takes over at that point.|
I just tried toggling off engineer auto-work and they still insisted on moving to the southwest. They're all moving to slightly different coordinates.
I had a similar issue with raid frigates in this game, but I didn't make a save for it and haven't been able to reproduce it yet.
||Confirmed, that is a strange one indeed.|
