Ah thank you, I only looked at the 4.4 thread. My bad.
Sorry if this has already been addressed. I haven't played Empyrion for a couple months up until this update came out. So has anyone had any issues building a new HV from scratch and not being able to dock it on a CV or BA?
The landing gear and docking pads are all screwy now. Icons in the constructor for landing gear aren't the same blocks you see in game. You can't use Docking pads on SVs anymore and the docking pads for HV doesn't do jack all.
Just A Question ,Have items been removed from the rare containers alien, now empty? On our server we have a event planet and we were gonna use them as prizes but they are now spawning empty
The various docking pads you research now are actually multi-blocks - just right-click with one equipped and all the old options will be there. I recently built both an HV and SV with the thin pads, and another with the taller ones.
Oh okay thanks for that info. But I'm still having issues with not being able to dock a HV into a CV.
Also the HV docking pads aren't changeable (multi-blocks), they remain docking pads for the HV. SV landing gear can be made into docking pads and heavy landing gear like you said.
Regarding HV docking: I spawned in an old HV from a blueprint before hover engines were needed. The moment I spawned it in, on top of my CV, it docked with a single docking pad under it, and no hover engines. The moment I gave it hover engines it could no longer dock to my CV. So this is obviously some sort of bug.
Is the docking pad touching the cv ? can you post a screenshot of it ?
Yes it is, I've even lowered it 1-2 blocks so the only thing touching the CV are the docking pads. But for some reason using hover engines (even if placed higher above the landing pads) does not let the HV dock. Even powering it off and letting the HV settle on the CV won't let it dock.
Strange have you checked they are both in the same faction ?
I'm not having any problems docking hv's to cv's. In the pic both hv's are docked just fine.
I'm playing a local game in single player, factions should have nothing to do with it as I have no problems docking SVs. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I've built two HVs from scratch and they will not dock to my CV. I brought in one I built from an old blueprint (pre-hover engines) that CAN dock with no issue. It won't function as a proper HV since it lacks the new hover engines. Once I put those round hover engines on it, it refuses to dock anymore. Even REMOVING those hover engines, it still won't dock.
Even in SP there are two fractions: all and private. They do not dock at each other - and according to Murphy...
That picture is from singleplayer. When you are in your HV press & check which faction it says then exit hv & check the what faction your cv is.
As moonsugar said above there is two factions in singleplayer public & private.
If that doesn't work I suggest making a bug report here http://empyriononline.com/threads/bug-reports-alpha-4-4.8298/
It seems to have fixed it self. I spawned in another of my old HVs from a blueprint, and spawned it on top of my CV. It has no hover engines, so I hopped in, powered it, and it docked to the CV. This time I attached the hover engines while it was still docked to the CV, and now it docks and undocks properly.
Also again factions had nothing to do with this problem. I'm playing a single player local game, all vehicles are of the same faction (private) otherwise my CV would be shooting at my HV.
No, it would not.Public and private factions dont battle each other (not in SP at least).
Did you check? I had exactly the same issue once in build 704. I desperately abandoned the game, just to discover my failure in the next one. Handcrafted ships and spawned often do not have the same faction. If i remember right, the ships i built in survival were private, the spawned ships were public.
For the UMPTEENTH time, factions wasn't the issue. I still don't know why it wasn't working in my past builds. Seems like I have to build it, dock it, and then put on the hover engines while it's docked. Go fig!
Excellent suggestion. We hope to see this in the future.
For now we just have our auto-update powershell script overwriting the new default dedicated.yaml from a saved copy.
Make sure the vehicles are both private/public/in the same faction. Drove me nuts until I figured out you can only dock vehicles in the same faction, or private, xor public
It feels like a bug to be able to two shot a NPC/alien turret with 4 rail guns. on HARD.
I really hope it is.
