1.10 fuel transfer issue?

Question

Hello, it's been a while since I posted yet I've been playing!

 

Today my KSP updated to 1.10 and I'm not able to transfer fuel a second time or between more than one tank. The very first two tanks I select will do. But if I select one of those tanks and a third, the "out" will select and the "stop" button will show up but no fuel transfer will begin. The "in" won't do a thing.

 

 

Okay. I don't know what's going on but I tried to post this 3 times and without an error it takes me back to my post in progress missing images and some of the text. I don't get it.  I'll try to send this thread without screenshots.

Regards

I've been getting this as well. It happens with docked vessels too.

This is a confirmed bug on the support forum. Unfortunately one of my aircraft requires fuel balancing when flying at high speeds. This bug in 1.10 makes it temporarily not operational.... Guess I'll have to hold on to some of my contracts.

When you Alt-Right Click trying pinning the fuel tanks. Maybe I just got lucky but it let me transfer fuel more than once.

Sadly for me that doesnt seem to fix it.

Time warping is a solution, switching vessels doesnt work either for me.o

I came here to report this issue, but I also have a potential workaround. I find that if I have two docked vessels, I can only transfer fuel one time. However, if after that transfer I close all fuel windows, pause the game, and unpause it, I can transfer fuel again one additional time. So in order to transfer fuel between multiple tanks, I have been double tapping escape between every transfer, which "resets" the bug and lets me transfer fuel between two more tanks.

Aha. Excellent. I bet I accidentally did that before I pinned the fuel tanks.

With history as my guide... I predict not.

Just install ShipManifest and forget about about stock fuel transfer for a while, it'll probably stay broken for the next nine months, like all the other bugs.

I have found that sometimes it will and sometimes it won't allow me to transfer fuel.

When it doesn't I have to close the transfer windows and try again, sometimes starting with the other tank.

Usually after a few frustrating attempts it goes ahead and starts the transfer.

@HansAcker posted the easiest/fastest workaround for this bug!

For the fuel transfer, the same workaround still applies that helped me in earlier versions where interrupted transfers wouldn't resumed: open the PAW of another part containing some resources (or just quickly mouse over the resource panel). That resets the fuel transfer.
