    Forgetting recipes?

    No idea how or why this occurs, but several times across multiple play-throughs, I've found a schematic that I've already read and put into use, then I'll find another copy of that same book, and despite knowing that I've used it before there's no icon indicating that I've already learned that recipe, and I'm able to read it again.

    Could be the game isn't saving.

    I've also had players experience this when I roll back a region to a backup or I alter a recipe/recipe book.

    Any mods?

    No mods usually, I mostly play on friend's dedicated servers with only 20-35 ping, though I did install Magoli's prefab pack the last time we reset the server. I've experienced this all the way through A12, though not very often at all. Maybe I'm going mad?

    C'est possible.

    In my non-expert expert opinion I would guess as to when/how the game saves. I have only seen this in the instances I mentioned before.

    The only thing I've noticed about this is that when you put the blueprint into the craft grid in order to scrap it into paper, the little yellow indicator disappears. Put it back into your backpack and it shows up again.

    Wait, we aren't supposed to be able to read already known recipes and books?
