space stations

I was really happy when I figured out a way to build a space station. build a ship take it in orbit then build it there all good. Intill I reloaded the game and my station was gone. My question is for the admins is there going to be a fix for this? I put it here because its sort of a vehicle considering you have to add on to a space ship. Also I would of reported this as a bug but I did not see a spot for that.

Thanks I hope you guys fix this

If you want your station to survive, you have to keep at least one control block on it (one of the 6 metablocks used in vehicles, so just plant a thruster). Otherwise it will be considered as meaningless part and will be discarded in 5 minutes. But this should not make it disappear JUST when you reload. So this is probably not the cause.

Another issue that may have happened is that you moved the station upon respawning and sent it fly away. Or there may be persistence issue for vehicles in space. In fact, we did not focus on this part yet.
