    I got really far in questing. I'm on the Glitch clues search. While on a planet looking for Glitch, my power flickered off at my house restarting my PC. When I rebooted and loaded up the game, instead of being on the planet I was on, or stationary on my ship, I was actually in warp drive on my ship. I still had all of my items and everything. Nothing else was different, except after my ship finished traveling in warp drive, I only had the option to beam down to the planet. Upon doing so, I was placed on a completely different planet. It wasn't even the first planet I adventured. It appears as though everything reset, save for my ship, and my character. Any idea how to get them back? I did /admin and teleported to the Outpost, and everything that I had unlocked is now locked or not even there. Very frustrating, because now I can't even progress in the story mode. :nurumad:

    i had the same problem, i adventured quite far in the game, and when i played the avian mission, my computer crashed. it has nothing to do with starbound, it happens to me a lot.
    but when i restarted my pc and relaunched starbound, i was too in warpdrive and arrived on a new beginners planet, while my character and my ship was unchanged. i even got my quest but when i wanted to go on the outpost, i saw that i had no known teleporter to teleport to, so i explored the new planet, activated the door thing to get to the outpost and when i got there, every shop that where available in the past now are unusable.
    So, i assume that when u crash your universe get deleted and u get a fresh one, even if u cant progress in the story
    i still want a way to get my universe back tho

    Yup. Sounds like a pretty common issue. This happened to me too!

    Stopping by to say this still happens in the Stable build.

    However I had the issue of the game locking up the entire computer when killing an exploding penguin with a rocket during the Dreadwing fight.
    On forcibly rebooting computer and starting back up, I came into the game mid warp, not in the same system, and all teleports gone.

    TLDR: Same as above, universe gone, logged in mid warp, but was fighting Dreadwing when the game locked computer up.

    If you check the universe folder and note the coordinates of the worlds you were on, you can go in game, use /admin and type in those coordinates in the nav console to fly there for free, then remark your teleports as needed on the planets.
