New Players experiencing auto-pilot failure

Postby LadyHawk » Sat May 06, 2017 6:00 pm

I have talked to 3 new players over the last 6 hours or so that have all had problems with auto-pilot simply quitting on them.
All have been in the I9 cluster, 2 of the 3 had just bought new ships, they could manually maneuver with thrusters but were
not able to jump, dock or land using auto-pilot. Emergency jump to Ceres took them to Ceres space but floating helplessly
there, still not able to dock.

All 3 were able to regain function by logging off and back, although one said he had to exit all the way out of his OS and come
back before it reset.

I have been subject ti this as well. I thought it was just my machne as it happens intermittently and usually in Ceres. It does seem to be a glitch with the program though. I am wondering if it has something to do with the game eating memory over time.

These are caused by network interrupts. The new UI is quite sensitive to them. A restart does fix it, but can be quite annoying if it happens often.

I thought it was a technical problem rather than a coding problem. It is too intermittent to be a coding problem.
