Players being detected kilometers away even with broadcasting turned off

Richard Karcher shared this bug 23 months ago
Won't Fix

In a recently concluded pvp server, my friend and I attempted to play stealthily at first. We both knew about the broadcast hot key to turn off your hud indicator for other players, but we would be detected 5-6 kilometers away, ruining any attempt at sneak attacks with smaller ships. This problem occurred both when we were in and out of vehicles with none of the vehicles having beacons on them or any other hud indicator.

Hello,

Thank you for the report. Could you be more specific please? What kind of server it was? Do you mean some public test server or a different server?

Any additional information would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

The game was locally hosted on my Xbox One S. Otherwise, we would see each other on our HUDs once we were within 5-6 kilometers of each other and continue to see each other on our HUDs for the next 10 minutes or so regardless of distance. It reached 9km at multiple points as that was the distance between our bases.

Are you able to reproduce it in a new world or was it only one time issue?

It occurred multiple times in that world, but on the new world we have up it is not occurring.

I am still not able to reproduce it. In case it happens again, let us know please. I would probably make sure that "Show all players" is not checked.

For reproduction of the issue we would probably need to have reliable steps to reproduce. I will keep an eye on it during other tests but with current amount of informations I'm afraid we won't be able to reproduce it.

Any additional information would be appreciated.

Thank you!
