drifting of npc unstoppable

Today i started another game on one of the testservers, i have conquered an npc private Sail and hacked the seat, the gyro and the remote.

Then i wanted to stop the flight. No matter what i do with the thrusters, the ship continues flying. I put in another target gps to the remote, so it should fly to one of my bookmarks. It starts moving to the target direction and fires the ion thrusters, but the ship is not moving towards it. It stll keeps drifting in the same direction.

So with full thrusters, full batteries the ion thrusters is not doing anything against the drift. Its constantly moving in this one directions no matter what i do.

This is definitly a bug. Pretty similar to the one i have posted, where my miner is drifting out of my safe zone and was unstoppable, too.


Then i tried to catch the drifting ship with a merged block. I managed to build a merge block on both ships but it is impossible to connect them, because the drifter is doing cray movements, the moment you are next to the merge blocks. you cannot merge the blocks because of that. I have made a video from that situation and attached.

Its also not possible to grind a drifting ship down to pieces with a grinder block. It makes the sparkle but is not grinding anything.

And fun fac, if you are sitting in ships seat you can see the sparkles and if you leave seat and take a look, the ships then have a different position and dont even touch.

Btw, repair contracts also impossible to complete, because of same problem. NPC ships, which contracts spawns to repair, just doesn't repaired with welder. There are be sparks and resources disappear, but repair does not work.

You probably can do that manually, because i was able to grind that ship down manually. Just parts start exploding when you do that, and that should not happen, so basically if you grind them down manually you will loose a lot of the resources and while its drifting you cannout pick parts, because they instantly fly away. Thats another flaw of SE in general. Parts dont get the inertia when dropping and its very annoying. It also killed me many times, when leaving the seat while drifting.

This seems to not be limited to NPC ships now, it happens with player ships too.
