safe zone rubberbandig

I have a exotic behaviour when flying a small grid ship into my safe zone. The moment it enters the zone its stuck in space and it looks like its surrounded by gelatine.

I can move the ship but it comes back like its stick in rubber. I can turn and it instaturns back.

I cannot dock or fly out of safe zone. I can switch safe zone off and then its normal flying again.

I have made a screenrecording of this crazy behaviour and because its a long file i provide a downloadlink

Now all my ships have the same problem.

One i forced to undock and now its slowy drifting away and unstoppable. Its a miner with hydro thrusters, full tank, full batteries and i am sitting in it and cannot fly it back while it is drifting with 0.83 m/s away

I made bookmarks to "aim" for it, and was able to put at least antenna on to have a chance to find it

I think only server restart or dev can stop it from drifting away.

It has something to do with the safe zone mechanism. I dont really know what to do so i just quit the game.

Grids that aren't whitelisted drift away when entering the safe zone. This has been an issue before the public test. While they are drifting they are also invulnerable as per safe zone configuration.

Well, how do i find my miner, which drifted away ? I couldnt rename it properly and because it has 2 drills on it, i want at least delete it to make a new one ?

I need something like !grids list to get the gps coordinates so i can bring it back.

Hi,

Thanks for the report. I will move this to the general section, so we can check it out for upcoming major.

Since the economy update you can setup a contract block with a search mission for your missing grid. Extra points for putting a reward on it and inviting other players to bring it back to you.

Well, it looks like a nice feature, but the one thing i dont want mostly is that someone is bringing something or coming to me. And i dont think that anyone will jump 3000 km to the point where my little miner is around.


And the fact that i lost a ship because of a bug on the safe zone makes me unhappy. I can just delete the grid, but i have lost the will to continue playing on the test server.. so i will do nothing.
