Hardware:

As you may see, there are way more than 8x XL solar panels. Those were not layed on each other. It was one placement that went to 8x. I then kept hitting x to recycle down to 3x but it kept getting larger! Kind of like the bug though. We should have way to do this as a feature.

If I picked up the item and kept trying to replace it I could keep increasing the number of radial parts endlessly. But after deleting it the phenomenon went away and future XL solar panels acted as normal.

Thought I would post it though in case it helped solve problems later.

Actually, it just happened again. but goes away after replacing the item with a new one.

I believe this is a known bug, though I can't quite remember how to reproduce it myself... there is a definite set of scenarios that will easily trigger it, though. :)

...I'm going to make a video on how to get this to happen reliably. It relies on a glitch with symmetry around a skinny, radially attached part. Though 0.90 made this more difficult, it hasn't squashed it altogether.

Will update post soon!

If its easy to get rid of and easy to get to, and it has some practical gameplay use, then its not a bug.

Its called an accidental feature

It is useful at times, and easy to "fix" by shift+X'ing until you go below 8x symmetry, it's no reliably triggered though, at least not for me.
