That's me. Thick as pig poop clearly. I'll try not to be offended by your condescension but we all have the right to express our opinions. To just say I'm stupid for expressing it is utter BS. My opinion of course.
Problem is people just love to be offended. It's sad.
Yea, it can be a pain. Devs promised they will appear much more regularly in the future.
As of now, if you're not mode-switching, it can take weeks and at some stations they simply don't appear at all.
No, but what I described is another example of "something happened and now my ship is unresponsive and I can't get to it". So like I said - maybe resolving this problem will resolve yours.
The server disconnects are a different matter altogether.
Well, good. Then it should be on the list. :)
And yes, you are right. The one thing that I know for sure is in 2.3 is the ability to dismiss the ship when it gets stuck over an uneven terrain and can't land and you can't board it and the recall her back.
Maybe your problem will be packaged with this improvement.
1) someone might actually deliberately look out for these and make it part of a gameplay.
2) If you can keep the attackers at bay for long enough, an SAR vessel will appear and refuel the stranded ship. So you can take a genuine part in "saving them".
3) Free mats!
Yes, Unikorn and some others don't deserve the "Ganker" label.
But 90% of the commanders in CG space do. They don't care about piracy at all. Our luck is that there seems to be a rivalry between certain ganking groups and many times they are busy with one another and don't have time to kill traders. :)
So you think that here it will get more attention from devs than in Bug reports forum? :D
Bug reporting forum isn't there for "getting attention". You report a thing, they add it on the list. That's all.
A bug that is a result of a disconnect while changing instance can be really hard to crack. Especially if the disconnect originates on your side. So just be patient.
I think customisation of outfits making them truly unique is the way ahead. It's not happening overnight but it could happen some way down the line.
I find it amusing seeing the really impatient "I want it now" tantrumeers and the older more sedate "yeah it'll happen when it happens" posters.
We have opened the doors to the chimp house when we made this gem console playable.
