Known Issues

  • Ground vehicles and initial spawn point

With this latest update, your initial spawn chooses the location of all your ships. If you have ground vehicles through the pledge store, selecting an initial home location that supports ground vehicles, like New Babbage, would be best.

  • After a server crash, attempting to reconnect may result an infinite loading screen and being unable to interact with the menu

Players will need to exit the game and reload after a server crash to fix this error. This is part of the bug where players used to see a Bad Token after a crash which blocked them from re-entering but with the latest changes, that error is no longer displayed.

  • Pledge Items lost on death

With this upcoming change, players will now lose all items equipped to their character upon death. These items include items from the pledge store including subscriber items. We are currently looking into different solutions for this but for 3.15.x be warned that if you die with subscriber items on, you will lose them in game but they will not be removed from your account or pledge store. These will be returned upon new major patches or through an account reset.

  • There’s a chance after a player loots a body, they will stay in the Looting / Free View Camera. This will also leave the looted body in use, preventing further interaction / looting

  • The Player is unable to Select Ground Vehicles as a Sell Location on Trade Terminals/Kiosks
  • The Player is unable to Select a Stored Ship in the Refinery Terminal
  • Weapon projectiles trajectory will not behave correctly when shooting from one zone inside a ship to another outside
  • Multiple Heavy Armor Arms Clip/Partially Obscure some of the mobiGlas Icons
  • Destroying mission-spawned reinforcement type ships does not always trigger the ongoing ‘Call to Arms’ mission rewards

  • Missiles can hit the players ship when they are fired whilst the ship is moving forward
  • AC Players can spawn facing the wrong way at the start of the match or after dying

Feature Updates

AI

  • FPS and Ship Combat AI Polish

Increased distance at which FPS AI will fire upon players. Made hit prediction performance improvements to help with ship AI hit prediction.
