the problem as described above is periodicly happening to me even as i am logged out
from my character!
Changing maps does have no effect.
The timeframe of the window, where you can hear the sounds from other poeples ground missions is about 1-3 seconds long and then there will be a pause, which can varry in length.
Sometimes it can be 5-10 seconds, another time it will be half a minute
or more before you hear the sounds again.
Anyway i thought i let you know. Probably there is something wrong
in how packages are being handled at an individual level.
Funnily enough today i watched an old sto video on youtube and Craig or whoever it was (forgive me for i dont have it so well with all the names yet), mentioned they had this bug, which they left in for giggles,
where everyone could hear Spock congratulate people on rank ups
throughout sector space.
While i dont mind that, as its awesome, i find the issue with all the ground
mission sounds from other poeple (?) goin on at random intervals,
no matter where you are located, slightly irritating.
I've also noticed this effect in the Star base 24 Fleet action. While my Ship display has switched from Dramatic Battle Music to Suspense Music (because my 'Red Alert' condition has expired due to the lack of combat action...) I can still hear someone else Dramatic Battle Music going on in the distance...
