I’ve been trying to play the game for the past couple of weeks and am encountering crazy bugs and issues. For example, yesterday I accepted one of the ‘multi-drop’ cargo missions. Getting to the ship was fine but then on trying to use the Starmap, I could not click on the destination point at all. This happens a lot to me, on the stamap, where I just can’t select the right spot. So I flew manually to the nearest planet and then brought up the star map again, but still couldn’t select the destination (so could not quantum drive to the location) and had to manually fly to it at regular speeds, which took over 30 minutes.
Once I picked up the three packages from one location, I had issues with the spacebar (for lift off) which just stopped working, as did several other buttons/functions. After delivering the first two packages I used the ship bed to log out. When I logged back in, the system had dropped my delivery mission entirely. I still had the third box in the ship but now couldn’t deliver it and I’d lost the mission so didn’t get paid anything. On lift off from the planet I was on, the ship flipped upside down (with no control input from me) and then dived into the ground, exploding on impact and, for some reason, giving me a criminal status.
This is very frustrating. I want to love the game but this kind of thing makes it very hard to love! When I watch videos of others playing they NEVER seem to have this ‘selection’ issue on the Star map, whereas for me I have it all the time.
Are the issues I’m experiencing due to having a middling PC to play on, or is it just the state of the game? I don’t see the issue with the map mentioned anywhere else but for me it’s extraordinarily janky, all the time.
