Game Mechanic Glitch?
« on: October 04, 2012, 08:12:38 pm »
I built a small fighter using the cockpit helm and cockpit. For some reason, I cant press "F" to get in the fighter, in the adv. editors "launch" mode and is Solo. I tried putting a helm pad instead, same problem. Will this be fixed? Is it just my computer?

The devs changed how you pilot craft temporarily. Now you have to press the "P" key when near your space ship.
I don't want to go "Oh! there's shots going my way! No big deal I'm the U.S.S Bloody Massive, It won't even leave a scratch." *boom* "SHIT! BIG DEAL! HUGE DEAL!"

You don't know how much that helped.  :)

Now the piloting is weird  ???
When i press "P" it just locks me in place and lets me control the ship. It doesn't teleport me into the cockpit. Is this because i use a cockpit helm? Or will it be fixed later?

You can currently control your ship from anywhere, regardless of whether you have a helm or not.

Well, i don't want to be rude, but that's not very good for tiny fighters... :-\

It is by no means permanent. Cockpit/helm controls will return, I assure you.
