Since the patch yesterday I have been unable to add the power surge regulator R&D project to the project queue. Interestingly, after completing some plasma compressors, they stopped wanting to start too and then I noticed, they all have the same row in the UI list (and possibly the DB behind it) and no matter what class (beams, cannons, shields etc) that 4th/5th row from bottom just will not allow the project to start.
Has anyone else seen this? if so, is there a fix? I did a game file verify and have logged out for like 12 hours (with a full local network reboot, not that it needed it) and nothing seems to have made a difference.
