It kind of goes without saying, but hey, it’s been a noticeable problem for me more than one occasion. I’ll be 2 seconds away from finishing repairs, and some heat spammer will set my fuel tank on fire, and suddenly, my repair is reset to 35 seconds. Why? That makes zero sense, especially if no other damages are to be had minus the actual fuel tank.
I think I speak for not only the majority of the community (in the position of the repairer anyway) when I say that needs to be removed, and if you’re on repair and only get set on fire, you resume the repairs where you were so RUDELY interrupted from- or, repair through the fire…I’d gamble burning to death on that one away.
Worth stating, on that note; If you stop for repairs, cease repairs and relocate for whatever reason, you should restart repairs where you left off and not as if you weren’t repairing in the first place- hell, it would be pretty interesting to see people selectively repairing certain modules as well.
Oh, and allow me to select the order in which I repair the modules I want to focus too. Like “Bro, I could not care less about my engine right now, give me my god forsaken gun back so I can defend myself” or “Let me repair my engine so I can get away and I’ll repair my turret ring later” type of thing. I’d imagine you all have had that same experience with your gun barrel/breach being repaired last. It’s genuinely aggravating.
