[3.30HF2] Ships Stuck "Undocking" After Reassignement - Probably fixed in 4.00.

Post by Alm888 » Sat, 5. Dec 20, 14:22

Hello!

Another glitch. My 100+ fighters were busy grinding for EXP trading Energy Cells from one station to an adjacent one, while being "Trade for" subordinates for the selling station. As 100+ S class ships is more than stations' external docks can handle, the ships were constantly being transported to/from internal storage. After the selling station's hold depleted I've reassigned all 100+ ships in bulk to the "buyer" station in order to reverse the process. Most of the ships were transferred just fine, but three of them remained as subordinates of the "seller" station and were in the internal storage (ENW-552, YCY-551 and GFK-214, see screenshot). They never made any attempts to actually detach from the station. I can request them to be delivered to/from external dock manually, but this does not change anything. The pilots are "Sorry, I'm Busy Right Now"® and can not be reassigned or moved from their seats.

Any news on this yet?

Did the savefile reach the developers? May I remove it from my dropbox already?

Any comment would be welcome (even "Sorry, we won't be fixing this in either 3.0 or 4.0") because as of right now I kinda stopped playing.

There is a similar report for M ships in 3.30 here.

I'll see if the devs can take a look.

Upon loading the save, there were no ships assigned as subordinates to either station in Path to Profit and there were two ships docked at Path to Profit Trading Station I (HQG-585) with orders to Hold Position and stay docked. On assigning these two ships to work for Path to Profit Trading Station II (NEF-081), both ships undocked and started searching for trades. This was tested with the latest internal build of the game based on 4.0.

Glad to read that the issue will be fixed in 4.00.
Alas, this means the "waiting game" right now, because I highly doubt 3.30 will see another stability patch.

Yes, this seems quite similar.
