Bug report: :01414:
1.) Description of the problem. What happened?
I got disconnected (network error message - connection lost) and I appeared in the Empire hangar, without my loot in Open Space (Fort Muerto sector).
2.) What did you expected to happen?
I expected a smooth operation, without disconnects, because I have no current issues with network connectivity in game and overall as well.
3.) The conditions during the situation?
Completely normal. No lag spikes, no packet loss. Just network message appeared and I was in the Empire’s hangar.
4.) Further details on the issue?
Exactly the same thing happened to me once before, maybe 1 or 2 updates below this one. This is a bug, but it is a rare one and it strikes suddenly, with no indications.
I accepted theDarkMatter player in my group and I went from Empire Space towards Fort Muerto (meeting point). I picked some good loot along the way as well with my Spatial Scanner.
When I arrived to Fort Muerto, he was waiting for me. We wanted to trade, but I suddenly lost connection (network error screen - connection lost) and I got no notification, if I wish to return to previous sector.
I was still connected and I was chatting normally in the group chat! I was not thrown out of the game entirely! I only appeared in the hangar, while the rest looked normal as well. My mono daily mission was completed.
Nothing. All I could do is, that I completed my daily monocrystal mission, when all of my loot was lost.
5.) Frequency of occurrence?
Rare. It happened only once before, now twice, including with this report. I never had such issues before. I think that patch 1.2.2, 1.2.3 and now 1.2.4 introduced this problem.
I was not able to reconnect, since I was given no notification to return. I was stuck in the hangar.
6.) Logs + [screenshots](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/18799-how-to-takepost-screenshots/) or a video?
Logs are included.
7.) If possible, the time when it happened. In this case we will be able to look more closely to the server logs. Also mention your time zone.
This issue occurred at around 15:40-45 (3:40-45PM). Check the logs. Time zone: UTC +1 (Slovenia).
8.) Information on the configuration of your computer. (DxDiag)
9.) The results of this [program](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/25324-info-connection-losses-high-ping-and-related-issues/) if the bug report is related to connection issues.
Even if I got a message that it was a network error, it wasn’t. I believe, that a bug triggers this message somehow, but the source of this bug lies elsewhere.
10.) If the complaint is related to Sector Conquest, it is necessary to specify the location and time + timezone of the happening.
Not related to SQ (Dreadnought Battles).
