Whenever I edit my own Empire with the ingame editor some new auto-designs are created, how can I disable that? I already have automation of designs off.

Can you outline exactly what you are doing in the editor?

I just edit some characters of my empire, when I close the editor new designs are created. I guess you have to have new techs researched before they are created.

Characters do not need tech.
Editing characters will not create new designs.

I would have a look in options, ESC then select it from the menu that comes up or select options from the main menu, make sure that ship design is on manual and that all your current designs are set to manual for both retrofit and design.

I'm sorry to say that this is in fact a bug. And there's a second part to it as well. Applying a change to characters does recreate deleted default designs unless they're switched to manual upgrade in the design screen. Character editing also has a funny effect on research projects.

And now the designs are back again. Notice that there's no construction ship and no capital ship. That's presumably because I experimented and set those designs to manual upgrade before deleting them.

And that science thing...

I applied a change on an agent and noticed that I immediately had a critical science breakthrough. So I thought to myself that this was odd as hell since the game was supposed to be paused while I'm editing. Consequently I applied changes one more time and the game gave me a critical research failure. So I applied a change one more time and got yet another critical research failure.

I meant that you need new tech before new designs are created and not characters.
But as you can see above, it is indeed a bug.

Have you a save for this? It does indeed look like something could be wrong.

Thanks for this report. We'll alter this in the next update.

I believe the same thing happened to me. In my case I used the editor to give my empire some extra money and when closed and when to the design screen all my custom designs were gone and replaced with upgraded preset ones. Glad I read this because I wasn't sure what caused it.
