Thread: Help, I need Ship Rats!

  1. #1

    Help, I need Ship Rats!

    *UPDATE* Rescue has been sucessful, I am saved and arrived back in the Bubble on the 14.07.3302!


    So, I just started going out exploring and about 1000Ly out, found a nice looking planet to drive about a bit and having fun. Good times! Then I recall my Ship and it was weird, my view was blocked (lots of high stuff around me) so I target it from the contact panel.

    Shields down, hull down to 30%. and spinning around ... what are you doing Asp?!
    C'mon, don't be silly... aaaaaand hes gone, with a boom, bye bye Asp!

    So here I am stranded in my SRV and I could really need some help from Ship Rats!





    "Use the Self-destruct, Luke!"
    Don't wanna! I can survive If I just try hard enough! Always believe, never give up!!

    Well, if can hang on in there til multicrew drops, I'll come and get you.

  3. #3
    I guess in theory you could wait until multi crew is out and hope the SRV can be picked up like that but you have a long wait ahead of you

  4. #4
    The serious side of this is that it could be the NPC docking/landing bug is affecting recalled ships as well.
    .
    If you broadcast your location I'm sure someone will drop a food parcel to you once in a while.
    .
    If you log out and back in using the non Horizons game that might be a way out of this.
    .

    I'm afraid we don't offer that service

    Try loading the old Elite Dangerous when log in it may tell you last save was on a planet and not compatible therefore restores you to orbit. Good Luck

    I can come and take you to Robigo.

    How much do you weigh? Are you healthy? Any skills?

    If you've got video, or a verbose netlog, or maybe even just an accurate timestamp you'll probably be able to report this to Support and get your ship back. No way should you be forced to self destruct because of a problem you couldn't avoid.

    I'm not certain whether exploration data is tied to the ship or the overall account so you may have lost that either way, but Support have restored lost stuff for much dodgier reasons than this. Even if it turns out that they can't restore your Asp to your current location, the least they can do is reimburse you the cost plus a bonus for the inconvenience.

    At least you were only 1,000ly out and not 60,000.

    I am at least stranded at very nice place!




    I know just need to look if I can get everything here I need to survive (Phosphorus, Sulphur, Iron and Nickel) and I have seen enough Movies to know that I need to write a big SOS message!
    Problem is I'm not where I am on the second picture anymore, I'm deep down in the Canyon:


    Need to get to higher ground for a proper message, finding a way will be very difficult if not impossible!



    "Luke, seriously, theres no point"
    Shut up Ben! Wheres your sense for Adventure?

    Reminds me of the film Moon.

    Part of me, a very, very small part, feels sorry for you. The rest of me is laughing at the hilarity of the situation and post!

    Hope you get this resolved... but not for a few hours as I am looking forward to seeing how this finishes.

    Good luck!

    You have turned a bug into what sounds like a fun adventure! Props to you matey

  13. #13
    Cut your hand off first, I am sure someone will come and pick you up.

  14. #14
    Too bad we can't actually go and pick him up !!

    Frontier, show us you trully care and implement SRV rescue before this man runs out of tea !!

    I would like to know, if this was just some random bug or if it is a systematic bug related some way to the docking computer/NPC docking bug which can be seen after last patch.
    I just planned to do some landing and jumponium hunting, several thousadns of Lys from bubble. Maybe I should wait.
