Very very nice I can’t wait for this to be pushed to live! I thought they said there would be a surprise?
Rezedent Dec 14, 2018 @ 10:43am 
The patch is clearly something wrong. When I save the game, the game just hangs with a slight delay for 10 minutes. Some already translated texts are missing. Perhaps a new game is MANDATORY?

gonna try to load my game now, hope I dont have to start over, but if so, im atleast happy for the patch, thank you egosoft, happy holidays

Edit: So ive loaded my game, it loaded in fine, but I cant move or activate anything, im stuck watching my pilot finish his orders lol, may try a new game and see what happens.

Edit 2: i can move now,just fast travel to your ship/station seems to have fixed it, betty sounds wierd but im glad shes back. Going to run seta for a while and see if the wharf/shipyard fixes itself now.

Edit 3: My ship I ordered like days ago finally got built lol, but my FPS has dropped to 5.....i dont know why, maybe to much activity playing catchup? I can run the game on max settings so I know its not my PC....

When selecting the commander chair, the commander just vanishes. And when I get up the captain just appears. Is this a bug?

Yeah that's what happened to me. FPS dropped into single digits and stayed after about 10 secs of loading the game. I started a fresh save instead and it's been fine.

This is the "hyped" 1.5 Patch, really? Disappointing :/
BrianRubin Dec 14, 2018 @ 11:32am 
Does "beta 1" mean more will be coming in future betas for this one? It was sold as a pretty big patch overall.

Don't know where to put BUG REPORTs but since I haven't seen a mention of this anywhere, I'll put it here:

The mission "Finding Any Advantage" can't be aborted. I got the mission from the Argon. They tell me to scan a Xenon space station. I wasn't able to do it so I can't check if the mission would be completed afterwards. However, there is something else in connection to this mission.

Picture of the mission[cdn.discordapp.com]

If I right click the mission on the mission list or single click the mission to open the small context window and press the abort button, nothing happens.

But, when I open the briefing and abort the mission there, the briefing menu closes but the 3d model of the space station is being rendered on top of the map like a separate layer, while the mission still exists. To get the additional 3d ship image away I have to open the briefing again and close it.
