    So even though this mod has been in my load order forever, I finally got around to trying to use it today. The problem, however, is that when I place a beacon it brings up the little one-time only "this is your tutorial" window that gives a basic explanation of the mod... and absolutely refuses to close. I've tried closing it with and without a controller plugged in, I've tried some older solutions (originally for stuck crafting windows, admittedly) of trying to coc somewhere. The only way to get out of it is to qqq or alt+f4, which is less than ideal-- not least because the next time I forget and try to use it (or try a different approach) it happens all over again. Kind of at a loss, tbh.

    I'd really like to use the mod, so if anyone has any experience with this issue or has heard of this kind of thing, I'd super appreciate some advice. Not posting in "bug reports" because I'm sure it's some absurdity on my end.

    When looking at the tech tree in Industrial Revolution you have to "holster your weapon" to close the dialogue. This may respond in same manor, but dont know for sure. Worth a try.

    Thanks so much for the fast response! I'm afraid that's not too much of an option, though. I get the pop-up immediately after I put the beacons into something else's inventory, before I can even back out of the trade menu. As such, there's really not an opportunity to try to holster the weapon, as the inventory transfer window is still open in the background.

    Also, tried to quick-load out of it and again no dice. The only thing the game seems to respond to once the pop-up appears is the ` key.

    Apologies for the long turn around time on this message. So I rewatched the video from the mod page at your suggestion, and the station assignment issue mentioned in the video doesn't seem to be the problem.

    The issue I'm having is that I get the pop-up window shown at 2:06 and then can't do anything. I can't interact with the pop-up or the item transfer interface. The only thing that still seems to work when this happens is that I can bring up the console and enter commands, but haven't been able to use console commands to close the offending windows; I'm forced to resort to qqq or alt+f4, restarting the game entirely, and then not placing the first salvage beacon to avoid the pop-up. Again, I've tried with keyboard+mouse and controller both, but can't close the window in either case.
