Known Issues

  • The no-fly zone around security docks at orbital stations may destroy the player’s ship if they enter. Work-around: Keep a safe distance while in a ship or land and take the elevator to the security dock to watch on foot.
  • The Fleet Week display Anvil Carrack has a non-working ICU bed that players will get stuck in if they set their ICU to it. Work-around: Do not set your ICU to the display ship.

Server, Database, and Backend Fixes

Hotfixes will not correct currently broken accounts and those players may need to perform a character reset.
