Wouldn't it make more sense to have the camera zoom to the view screen when you exit from your bridge to tactical view instead of beaming out to... god knows where?

I believe it does that when you click on your chair. I will check this out.

yes when you go your bridge and exit via the chair it doesn't beam away instead it faces the screen. ( atleast for me it did )

How do you exit via the chair? I just tried clicking all over it but it's not interactive.

When I go near the captain's chair, the only thing that changes is that a "exit to tactical view" button pops up on the right side of the screen. But when I click it, I still get beamed out.

Is it specific to certain bridges? Which bridge are you using?
I'm using one from the "Federation Bridge Pack III: Research Science Vessel"

Whenever you're standing next to your chair, you'll see a 'return to tactical view' button on the lower right side of your screen. If you use this method to leave the bridge you dont get the teleport effect.

If you use the doors, you get the teleport.

I think if you use the bridges that came with the game, the camera switches to showing the viewscreen, but if you're using a c-store bridge your character beams out.

Ha... guess someone forgot to tell someone to do that for all the bridges.

Bug report time.

Edit:
Verified that I do not get the transporter effect on the basic bridge on my light cruiser via the captain's chair, but I don't get a camera pan either, just a panoramic narrowing of the screen top and bottom.

On my assault cruiser, however, all exit methods give transporter effect.

I tested it with Bridge packs II (Light Cruiser) and IV (Advanced Escort) and all the standard bridges, and it skips the teleporting if you use the button when near the chair. I don't have the other two packs to test, but seems odd that just those two wouldn't do it.

I did some testing on my prometheus bridge and exiting the bridge from the chair doesn't get a beam out if you visit your bridge directly from the ground, like from earth spacedock. but it does beam away from your chair if you've entered your bridge from your ship in space.

seems like a bug to me.

That makes a difference too?
*mind boggles*

Remember to submit bug reports please!

Edit:
It seems that accessing the bridge from ground then exiting from captain's chair causes it to completely skip the camera sequence (cuts straight to loading screen).
