DS9 and ESD are ridiculously long and has been for some time. As I am typing this I am waiting for DS9 to load. It has currently been 7 minutes and the number on the right side of the screen has gone from 94 to 96 during that time. No other area gives these problems. Am still waiting after finishing typing this post.

They fixed it. They increased the auto-log-out timer to 60 minutes.

One way of looking at it.

Ugh this problem annoys me so much when I'm trying to do Tour. I can get 4 runs in so long as ESD loads fast enough, but usually it hangs up on at least 1 run. I've found that if it hangs at loading ESD its faster to just exit the game and re-login and it loads right away.

This.
Also itīs a bit annoying to always have to actually kill the process to achieve this.
Would be much better if after a minute or so the game would at least dump me back to the character selection screen.

The last time this was mentioned, Branflakes said the programmers were looking into it. Apparently it was some tricky stuff for them to figure out.

I know how frustrating it is. When I was doing the Tour the Galaxy Race on my Fed toons in getting zonelocked, it costed me my full potential of 6 laps. But a friend suggested to close STO while in mid load, and within a minute of loading up STO again, you finish zoning. Sure you lose time, but at least you're not stuck waiting for 5 to 10 minutes.


But we know one thing, it tends to happen around the 94 mark. So whatever loads during that time is the llkely culprit. And reducing graphics does lower the chance of a zonelock.

Thing is though, we have the computers to run the game at full graphics (well i do) with no problems but this problem prevents me from doing that. I'm having to run at low graphics settings just to be able to get the ESD and DS9 loading down to less than 5 minutes.
If they fixed this problem we would be able to knock the graphics level back up.

I don't think it's a just a problem of the game. When I dock at ESD or DS9, the loading takes approx. 10 seconds.
It seems that lots of data need to be loaded. You should try to defrag your harddisk and see if it gets better.

This is really annoying, I actually don't visit ESD any more for this reason. If I have to (BO trainer etc.) I save up EVERYTHING I could possibly do there, make a run for it and dont return for weeks.

What works nice if you do STFs from social areas a lot try to be at ESDs lower level, normally theres no one there. Getting on and off STFs takes merely seconds this way
