# 1 Space Respawn - Autopilot
09-22-2012, 12:09 PM
I've recently noticed that when I die and respawn my ship is locked on my previous target and like autopilot my ship aims for it and does nothing but flys to it, I can't turn my ship no matter what I do, I can only control the speed. When the targets gets into range my weapons autofire, without me telling it to do so (I have push to fire, not constant fire).

Is this a bug or have I done something serious wrong?

oh how I would love to lock autopilot on my enemies. But not like this :/ sounds like a pretty bad bug.

This happened to me in ISE today. Had quite an exciting time as I cruised towards the gate while I tried to figure out what was going on.

Manually de-select the target and you'll regain control. I found out just in time.

Only way off i've found is the target being destroyed.

This has been happening to me every time i respawn as well. Once i was able to get the directional controls back, but dont know how i managed it. Tonight nothing i did gave me back my ship control. This needs to be fixed very soon dev type folks.

Yeah this happened to be on ISE too, was wierd auto piloting to a sphere, but left/right clicking a lot tends to break the lock (on open space, not the enemy ^^')

Click off screen use the tilda ~ key to clear target; that should help a bit. However this bug does need to be fixed; STO needs a dedicated bug fixing team for sure.

This happens to me all the time in ISE. It's really annoying. There's no way to get out of it. And since I was locked onto the Tac Cube, I could only fly toward it and die since everyone was fighting the gate. Then I respawned and was still locked on.
