Now -that- would be bleeding nasty. Having to slow-cruise around the planet until you can safely engage the FSD.I think it doesn't need to get fixed, there should just be a notice "FSD failure" rather than CTD. Nobody said exploration shouldn't be dangerous.
I do like the idea of the FSD needing to take (much?) longer to spool up with the consequent heat buildup. Then it's up to the player to decide to pop heatsinks or abort the spool-up and try high-waking or a different direction.
But a CTD should never occur (although better than instant player-ship-destruction). Odd that it also occurred on highwake though..
I feel this was aimed at my post (correct me if not); and I'd just like to clarify that I was most certainly -not- mocking. Rather advising OP to take a breath and a step back. Yes, lots of time invested. I've certainly been annoyed at issues/events in the game myself. Partially because I do play it more as a roleplay/immersive thing than a game. I certainly get very annoyed at all the pew-pewers laughing and shrugging off ganks because it's "just shooting virtual pixels" which -completely- ignores any and all time and effort the victim has invested in the game.Offering advice without the mocking "it's just a game" crap is fine.
But the occasional gentle reminder that it's "just a game" does help and it was NOT meant disparagingly.
