Is the VOIP working at all by the way ? I remember that was heavily advertised a long time ago (along with FOIP..) Couldnt try it myself as other players on my servers just run to their own activities.. That would make for some distraction during the 15-minute travel times between planets.The live chat is the key. Rather than being...or feeling... isolated through choice or being new, the chat binds each server in a social sense and makes SC quite bearable at times
I went solo for some bounty hunting missions, they are all bugged beyond usability, even the in space assistance missions where you defend a lone ship against multiple waves of pirates (with some very annoying randomly moving small ships, barely can hit em at all, good thing there are Cutters too..) tend to glitch out at the end giving zero reward against a few thousands in repair + restock... Plus the refuelling not working almost everywhere. And the horizon that's not level inside planetary hangars leading to hover mode freaking out..
So even simple mechanics that should have been implemented and working years ago, are still not working.
Also got killed by the physics engine a few times, one of them was at a R&R station, i sit down in one of the chairs that face the windows, that sent my character across the geometry and to his immediate death. Then respawned at Arccorp, because to hell with persistence, why did i bother docking at a R&R station after all..
