issue with the escort ships near all transports

Bug report:


I already wrote about this bug in the past.

However, now I got proof.


Escort ship near all transports will sometimes whirl without any control, leaving their visible engine trail behind.

If you touch it or collide with it, you can either get pushed at extreme speeds or or you die from multiple collision hits, if they get registered.

Usually only one ship is affected out of 3 or 4 in a group that does that.

Issue is also more common, if you play ‘Open Space’ mode for the first time.

Same goes for every sector when you just appear at the warp-gates. It increases the chance of triggering this bug.


Video: It got corrupted somehow.  ![:(](<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/003j.png “:(”)



Logs: (Check around 10:18+ in the logs for any anomalies)

I too have seen this. The Cyber escorts are awesome because they will turn on their plasma arc and then the server kicks you if you get hit by them.

Sounds a bit like this bug, except with ships and weapons XD (Could also help with your insta-boom bug)



We don’t now how to reproduce it

I will provide a video next time. It may help with the issue.

No worries until then.

How old is this issue? Wasn’t it fixed already?

I am 99% sure this is desync related. If I mess around with pausing the game process long enough to make a bit of desync but not too long as to get kicked by the server the escorts start spinning around. As such it is not something that can be fixed.

Alternatively, packet loss and momentary resource constraints can probably also trigger this.

LOL wow you come up with some head scratchers [@Koromac](< base_url >/index.php?/profile/243485-koromac/)  The STATIC drone following you trolling you the whole way while you are trying to plant a bomb O.o


That video I posted was only a bug for a few days on the time it was uploaded. It was obviously fixed fast since the game mode was unplayable like that ;p


But, it may have relevance in the way things “attach” to ships. Destroyer turrets attach to the main hull, you can see this by running into something and the turret will “squish” into the hull. It may possibly have something to do with collisions but probably not self destruct…

i have same problem with transport…i did escort 2 time but quest not count still 0/2

any1 know what is the problem?

I do, but it’s a product of chance, even if it’s common.

I never recorded, when it happened.


So far I know 2 things.

  • it happens all on convoy escorts or transports.

  • one ship, usually bottom left, is affected, but not the others (1 out of 4 ships)
