    For more information see here Bug Report Template

    Build: 1.8.10. 3881
    Mode: Survival
    Mode: Multi-player (only)

    SERVER NAME: Limited Test
    SEED-ID: 1234567

    Reproducibility: Always
    Severity: Game-Breaking

    Type: Wifi

    Summary: In order to move cargo to a ship from a base you have to physically go to your ship. Turn it on. Move it a few meters, then while you sit in the cockpit seat you can move the cargo from your BA to your CV/SV/HV. When you leave the bounding box of a CV the server for all intensive purposes logistics system thinks your ship is at the playfield border.

    Description: "Cannot connect to a ship near playfield border" Error

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1) Spawn a base with wifi, storage, and some random cargo in it.
    2) Spawn a CV/SV/HV and park it on top
    3) While standing on the base try to move cargo into the CV/SV/HV
    4) Have some tea and laugh.

    If you are having trouble reproducing this on the test server please try logging into one of your official servers and repeating the steps to reproduce. Or if you need log files. I created a test server to see if it was just a corrupted save issue and found it was not. Hover I forgot to save the log files before wiping the server and reloading the old save so I could continue work on projects.

    Please leave your character sat exactly where this triggers for you, exit the server & close the server down then create a backup copy of the save game & supply a copy of the save game from the server.

    When I try this on my own server or the official servers I can access the logistics menu & transfer items from 1 structure to another without any issue so far. Some video from 1 attempt just now in MP https://streamable.com/6ypihi

    Maybe you try to use logistic near the planet atmosphere? It not working coz of gravity well. Move you base and ships more than 1000 meters away from the planet.

    My base was already there before the update, and it worked normally. It was actually after the update to start giving this error.

    The message appears and soon after you can't access the ships' containers.

    My space station is in an asteroid field, less than 2km just after exiting a jump from the sun. I don't think I'm too far from the asteroids of the sector.

    Please leave your character sat or standing exactly where this triggers for you, exit the server & close the server down then create a backup copy of the save game & supply a copy of the save game from the server.

    How to supply a save game for a report:
    Go to:
    For SP or Co-op:
    Right click on "Empyrion" in your steam library > Properties > Local files > Browse > Saves > Games
    or: SteamLibrary\steamapps\Common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Saves\Games

    For MP:
    Right click on "Empyrion - Dedicated Server" in your steam library > Properties > Local files > Browse > Saves > Games
    or: SteamLibrary\steamapps\Common\Empyrion - Dedicated Server\Saves\Games
    1. Right click on the save folder & place your mouse cursor over 'Send to' create a compressed copy of it (or use winzip or 7zip)
    2. Use a file hosting site like mediafire, dropbox or google drive & add a share link to it

    This is a Multi-player only issue. So please test on a multi-player server. Besides that I have nothing meaningful to add to this report. Good luck. I hope others can add info you need.

    This is from trying in MP please read:

    If the report states MP
    MP is checked with the stand-alone dedicated server & or co-op mode when stated.

    ====

    Anyway a repro has been found & this only happens in certain playfields which the OP doesn't say anything about.

    Can I help with more information? My problem is identical to his. The only thing I have to add to the first post of this topic is that this problem only happens on my space station, inside the planets I can access my ships normally.

    Would it be necessary to open another topic or can we continue here?

    In my testing i noticed i didnt have this bug when i first signed into the server. It wasnt until i jumped to a new system that the problem started occuring for me.

    The issue seems to only occur for me, in Neutral, Non-Combat, Non-Hostile Sectors (or playfields).
    • Trade Station Alpha Sector (Visited prior to update)
    • Trade Station Delta Sector (Visited prior to update)
    • Delta Sun Left Sector (Visited Prior to Update)
    • Barbe Alpha Sun Front Sector (New system visited After Update
    I don't know of any Moon or Planet Playfields that are Non-Combat, non-Hostile, Neutral playfields, or I would try them.

    All other playfields I visited had the potential for combat and conflict, and the issue does NOT occur.
    This include the "International Date Line" (Anti-Grief Zone?) I tested on Alpha 5.
    So I don't think it has to do with Harvest/Mining prevention zones.


    Action History:
    This issue occurred when I logged into our space station, without warping anywhere.
    Last time I was logged into our Dedicated Server, was on 10/8.
    I updated our Server today (twice) and updated the Scenario on the server.
    I logged into our game, which placed me on our CV, in the Alpha Starter System, Trade Station Alpha Sector.
    Around me are 5 other CV's, nearly 10 SV's/HV's and one BA. All with WiFi modules. All worked fine prior to updating.
    I Jet packed over to the BA, and checked inventory (F4). The only Cargo boxes visible were from the 1 BA.
    I flew over to the Main CV, and pressed F4. Again, the only Cargo boxes were the BA Boxes.
    I moved out of range of the BA, and I could not connect to anything... even while standing on the CV Deck.

    I sat in the cockpit of my explorer CV, with one SV and one HV docked to it, and could only see Cargo from my CV.
    I moved to various locations around different systems and Sectors, above is the summary of what I found.

    Are we sure this is not intentional?
    It reminds me of the "Attack any CV spawned on a planet" decision.

    I hope this help.

    I Am Groot.

    Same Problem for us.

    If i sit in any vessel i can enter the cargoboxes of this ship. As soon as you stand and want to use the logistics, no vessel or cargobox is available and this Error is displayed: "Cannot connect to a ship near playfield border"

    From testing and what I have been hearing this issue only happens in sectors that do not have planets or moons. So as a workaround for players please move your mobile bases to sectors in orbit of planets.
