Ship Designer and Editing Animations

Posted on Friday, October 20, 2017

This seems obvious enough that I expect this is known already, but  I just haven't seen mention of it.  So I am asking if it is happening to anyone else.

I cannot edit the animation on ship parts.  When I select a ship design with animated parts, the editor shows me the ship but is not moving the animated parts.  Selecting a part and giving it an rotation speed or similar function and nothing shows in the editor.  The part stays in place.  If I quit the editor and re-enter, then it shows the added animation.

This happens with old designs that used to work just find and with newly created ships.  It cripples my individual ship design style since I animate ships a lot, but if it is widespread, it should be affecting others as well.  It has been true since the advent of Crusades.
