  1. Yes, I tried deleting user directory. It was the first thing I tried. Thanks for the reply though.
  2. No. I've been given the Hornet but I bought the Freelancer (standard model) as a game pledge with real money. I'm now stranded at Levsky. No fuel services there and getting there sucked the Hornet dry, lol. None of the ship retrieval terminals will divvy up my 'lancer. I either get the 'ship disappearing bug after a few seconds or the usual 'Failed to retrieve vehicle. We are unable to deal with your request at this time' etc etc. So far I've tried Port Olisar, Lorville, and here at Levsky. It's rather looking like I'll have to wait for the next patch and hope that sorts it.
  3. @ macgivre, Yes I get the little blue icon showing direction and distance for about 3 seconds before it disappears = no ship. Also on the terminal screen it says the ship is stored but nothing under location. I'm not sure if that's just a buggy ship or a retrieval bug. Thanks for the Levsky tip. I'll try that. I've already tried to retrieve my Freelancer at Teasa spaceport at Lorville which is where I am now but still the same issue. I'll try every terminal before I move on. Oddly enough I am able to spawn a Hornet F7C so I can get from place to place, but if I do end up needing a ride, I'll give you a shout. I'm based in U.K. time zone. Thanks for the offer, its much appreciated.
  4. Thanks macgivre, but I've already tried that and still have the issue. Thought it might be a bug. I've also tried going to other ports and retrieving my ship from another console but still no success. It looks like I'll just have to wait for the next patch. Such is life. Well I finally managed to get my Freelancer back by going to Lorville Teasa Spaceport and using a console there. This time it worked although I had to retrieve it by filing an insurance claim. That said at least I got it back. Now having got my truck back I wanted to recoup some of the money I lost previously. I loaded up with scrap and flew to Olisar. At the trading console at admin the game crashed when I clicked the 'Use' button. After a couple more attempts it finally worked and I managed to sell my cargo. However when I went to get my ship for another run, the ship retrieval console reported that my ship was at Landing Pad D07. When I got there, there was no ship to be seen. Numerous attempts but still no ship. A different server and this time the console reported my ship at Pad B07. Nope, no ship. Is this a bug with pads designated 07 or what? So far this patch is frustrating the heck out of me. I'm eager to play and Lorville is amazing but these stupid, silly bugs are just doing my head in. Because of them, it's taken me two days but I've finally managed to recoup some of my aUEC almost to the level I started with. Not good.
  5. I have as the title suggests a ship retrieval problem that I can't seem to resolve. I made a successful landing at Port Olisar . I left the ship and entered the port. Then I quit the game. When I returned to retrieve my ship the console reported that my ship was at Olisar but the info showed unknown as per the image below. I decided to try to retrieve my ship anyway and the story went as per the images below. I am unsure if this is an actual 'thing' in game or if it is a bug. Please can anyone clarify? I need my Freelancer. Thanks
  6. @Porcupine and @LowZone Thanks very much guys. Very helpful. I'll try those suggestions later. Busy this morning. I suspected those OM Markers might have something to do with it.
  7. Ah right rgr re: the null message being a bug. I wonder if you could help with another aspect I'm not sure of. I've tried another couple of missions and found out what outposts etc are on what planet. I can also QT to the planet fine, but then the outpost I have to pick up from or deliver to is generally so far away i.e. on the other side of the planet that I run out of time before I get there even at my highest boost speed. 2 x failed contracts like that. Is there any way to QT nearer? Thanks
  8. Yeah I noticed the "expedite claim" option which is supposed to cost money, but as it costs, or at least is supposed to, I haven't tried it. However, on trying to clam my hornet back I was presented with a "null" message. Probably made too many claims now, lol.
  9. Ah thanks. That must have been what happened the first time. I wasn't sure it had worked as I didn't get the countdown timer. Still all's well. This time, I got to Levski as intended, had a look around and its impressive. I went to the ship retrieval console and my ship was ready at hangar 3. I entered the lift for hangar 3 and when the doors opened I entered and promptly fell through the floor to the bottom of the lift shaft or into the black void at the bottom. Anyway, no way out except to quit. So that's what happened this time. It seems falling through the floor at Levski, various areas, is a pretty common event at the moment. It'll get fixed though, same as the frame rates.
  10. I just tried for a lift to Levski to no avail and then checked my ship status and lo and behold they both seem to have found their way back to Olisar on their own. It seems you only have to wait a couple of days and everything gets re-set, apart from my alpha UEC of course. Hehe.
  11. I've already asked for a lift to Levski or Yela. No offers so far. I could keep trying. Nice idea with the buggy though
  12. Well I have a ship stuck at Yela somewhere and so I thought I'd use my loaner Hornet to check out Levski. Got to Levski, got assigned a landing pad (the most awkward one) then messed up the landing because of lag, ran out of time, the pad closed then re-opened, I landed touched down, bounced all over because auto land didn't work even though I assigned a key to it. Could not extricate myself so quit. Now I have the loaner hornet stuck at Levski, my Freelancer somewhere at Yela (I'm assuming Grim Hex or God only knows where) and I respawned at Olisar. Great LMAO I wonder if the buggy (all I have left) will appear on a landing pad? Think I'll try driving it off the pad and into the black and see what happens. Should be fun.
  13. Thanks FoxChard. I know controls and such change significantly after each significant patch and I admit I haven't been following things as closely as I once did. Thanks for the TS offer. I may well take you up on that when I have a bit more spare time. Hope you had a great New Year.
  14. @Caldon Wow! Damn bad luck. I feel for you too with the server crash. Sorry I can't help with the mobiglass issue. At least that hasn't happened to me yet. @FoxChard Thanks very much re: the big white disk. I'll try that the next time I manage to get something to fly. I'm out of ships at the moment. One stuck in Yela and the spare Hornet is now floating around Olisar somewhere because real life intervened and trying to land back where I took off from got me a criminal status. So now I'm a heinous criminal with, obviously, a wanted status. So to add to my list of .... frustrations , I'll now have every bounty hunter and other opportunist hunting me down. I still have a greycat buggy but I'm not sure how effective it would be in space. I suppose I could always retrieve it and drive it off a landing pad to find out. Can it be fitted with a quantum drive? @Gremlich I have no idea what you mean by "so you don't get a pass" and I don't really care. I can only assume from that tone that you are trying to antagonise me. It may be my mistake that I omitted to state in my original post, that I was fully aware that the game is in ALPHA, that bugs, glitches etc are to be expected, that I have been a backer since mid 2014, My age, gaming history, my ability to read and understand terms and conditions, of which again, I am aware, etc etc. For all that I apologise. However, I was not aware that it was needed as most people are able to understand me without having to explain every syllable. I really don't know what sort of reaction you're trying to get out of me. You are not trying to be helpful in the slightest, so I can only assume you are trying to force an argumentative reaction from me for some reason, by criticising my use of my own native language. Furthermore, I have neither the time nor the inclination to enter into a game of semantics, or indeed a full blown argument with you. You are quite correct in that statement, however, I am not new to all this and am sick and tired of the unfinished garbage those companies push out every year or so. This is why I sometimes get a little frustrated - its because I so badly want Star Citizen and Squadron 42 to succeed. Yes, there was initially a little disappointment during my first foray into ALPHA 3.0. There was also some frustration too, which finally led to me posting for some help here. Finally, think of me as you will. It matters not, to me. It is your privilege entirely. I bid you goodnight. @Caldon @Catbuss @Painmiester and @Buckaroo Yes you all make valid statements. I'll take them on board. Thanks guys
  15. How very perceptive of you. I am English and have had very many years experience of conversing by the written word in my native language (lessons not required or needed but thanks for the offer). I am also amongst the older echelon of backers and might not have as much patience as I once had. Of course that is no excuse and I apologise if my slight disappointment upsets anyone. I am sure these annoyances will be fixed in due course and I still have a fair bit of patience left, more than most at my age I think. I still think this game is amazing in both scope and quality and knocks seven shades out of some full release triple A games out there. This release though? I just don't think it should have been released in this state. Yes bugs are expected at this stage of development but I just think this was rushed out for the holiday break.
