I've been occasionally experiencing a bug where the game doesn't transition correctly between ground and space and vice versa. When transitioning from ground combat to space. For the first 30 seconds or so, my character model is used instead of my ship model. Furthermore, my character "falls" through space until the problem fixes itself or it hits the bottom and stops.
The has also happened the other way around where I transport to a ground area and my starship model is portrayed.
I'm having the same problem. I could deal with the graphic glitch prior to this latest patch, but this new glitch of falling through space for 30 seconds before reaching the bottem of the "zone" then having to pilot back to the mission area is really annoying.
And now the game is crashing every few minutes. /sigh
