I get the typical 'you are a character in space' bug from time to time, but today have gotten it 3 times, and two of those three times instead of rectifying itself into a ship it has crashed the game outright.
Anyone else running into this?
My theory is lag + a bit of bad code = culprit.
Whenever I show up as a 'ship in a base' I haven't crashed (not yet) and it seems to eventually snap back to being a character.
I have crashed 8 times so far from this. Again, this is only after the latest patch.
Each one of those times I was attempting to "Beam Up". Two were in the Delta Volonis Cluster, one was from Spacedock, can't remember where the others were. So it doesn't seem to be tied to location at all.
I've encountered the "beam down as ship" bug a lot more lately too, but the crash hasn't resulted for any of those instances.
I REALLY hope this gets fixed in a patch tomorrow, because I won't be able to test any ground content for Cryptic without looking forward to a crash followed by 5 minutes of verifying files each time.
i also have been getting this today.. and only today.. never has STO EVER crashed for me for any reason.. now today, 4 crashes in a row after beaming up or down and the game loading the wrong ground/space model...
PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!!
worst part is after every crash the loader auto checks all my game files which takes like 5 mins
i miss last night... i played 6 hours straight. no lag. no issues
