    [NO PRIORITY] Unlimited Item Dispenser Range

    Sorry everyone, please don't hate on me for reporting this.....

    Version: 0.7.8
    OS: Ubuntu 17.04 Kernel 4.10.0-37-generic 64bit.
    Repeatable:
    Every Time
    Simple Description: Travel away from item dispenser inside a vehicle.

    Steps:

    (1) Park a vehicle within range of an item dispenser (Can be stationary, or attached to second vehicle.)
    (2) Enter vehicle and travel away from dispenser, dispenser connection icon never disappears.
    (3) Once beyond 20m or so it is safe to exit vehicle. dispenser remains active.
    (4) Was able to travel several hundred meters and it still remained active.

    Special Dispensation?

    Other Notes: Walking back in range and then away will clear the connection. Drifting away from dispenser on a hovercraft will also clear the connection. Only seems to happen when inside of a cockpit.

    Game Version: 0.8.9.1 Steam
    OS: Windows 10
    Simple Description: Infinite range on a item dispenser
    Detailed Description:
    Item dispenser was attached at me base some ~5 km away and i was able to use it to pull resources out to build with. Also saving and reloading the bug will continue to work; however if you die it will fix it's self.
    Reproducible: Every time
    How to Reproduce: While in range of a item dispenser, hop in a vehicle and drive out of range and hop out, you'll still be connected.

    We just need a little bit of patience... ;)

    Actually I thought they fixed it because I was not able to reproduce it later.
    I wonder if Craneballs has some automated test environment.

    I've noticed the "wifi icon" staying on when it shouldn't as well, when no where near a item dispenser.
    Usually because I have driven away from my base like Agamemnon
    But I hadn't got around to looking into it and testing.

    Ya I didn't check steam discussion,my bad, just searched here and necro'd the thread ;). Since it was a few versions ago and it was still a thing figured it worth mentioning again, even if it is a nice bug to have... might need to go to the suggest forum and suggest a satellite dish that can send item over LARGE distances but requires a stupid amount of power or something XD.

    I am happy when I see other people reporting bugs.
    The forum is not really intended to be used as a bug tracking tool and some issues are easily forgotten.
    My answer was directed to Craneballs as a hint that the fix might already be available somewhere in their repository.
