I'm not sure if this is just lag, but often it lasts for about a minute before my character changes. When I beam down to a planet, a lot of the times I'll spawn as a ship, on the ground. Relative size of course, but I'm a ship with all the animations, and I move VERY slowly. I do have the Ground Action bar though.
Same thing for beaming back up to space, I'll stay as my Ground Character for a few moments.
I hope I explained it accurately.
Anyone else having this problem?
stop ship before beam down. it seem to work for me.when i beam down to sol station while my ship had some movement i seem to always take the ship with me.
