Trading using faction ships

error 404 shared this bug 2 months ago
Duplicate

I have a faction, we have ships divided by function, so one player has more mining and production based ships, the other more exploration and warfare. This saves us the trouble of every one having a ship of every function by and for himself. Also +it saves up on PCU, which is remarkably pityfully low anyway on Keen servers.

The problem is that ships cant be shared for everythingh. for example i took a friend's ship to visit a trader (my ship was away and used by others for other duties), at the trader i got a sweet deal 14mil for 37 grav generators, so i jumped back to base, loaded up the grav. generators and went back to the trader. Couldnt complete the contract cos the ship wouldnt connect....it was not mine. I could not get any of my ships back before the restart, and i couldnt send someone ealse to finish the contract cos i started it.

So i lost 14 mil and reputation for no good reason.

What is the reasoning behind this mechanic?

I request it be changed all faction members can use all other member's ships for all possible function, if the faction so defines and allows.

Oh yeah, i heard on discord thjis issue is related to multiple accounts issue, well if you make a game that runs well with enough PCU for players to fulfill their every need, than they wouldnt need multiple accounts. You have only yourself to blame.
