I did have the 'patch spider crash' previously in this game. I added the debug output to the relevant ticket.
Installing a lithium booster through dockservices at a Ringer shipyard is giving a consistent crash. Occurs when the 'Buy and Install' action is clicked.

sav file attached
The crash info generated by my computer (backtrace.txt) attached. This is for the second crash.

Relevant section of the debug log:

I can't seem to open the save file, even after I download all extensions. I get "Unable to find type: 0 (missing mod?)"

Can you still open the save file in 1.9?

My bad. The mods are development versions. I would have changed something in them somewhere.
Added an Extensions.zip file which has the appropriate mods.

Thank you! I was able to reproduce the problem. It turned out to be a bug when installing more than a certain number of devices. I was handing out a pointer to an element in the device array, but when the device array was resized (because of a new device), the pointer was invalidated (and thus we crashed).

Thanks for giving me a reproducible case!
