Runaway harvester
« on: January 27, 2010, 09:18:24 PM »
This is a wierd one, and I've allready made the bug report.  I just wanted to kow if anyone else has had this happen.

I just built my 3rd harvester.  As soon as it finished it took off on a transport mission with nearly 5K of my hydro on board.  I ddn't send it, it just took off on its own.  I havn't proposed or accepted any trade agreements.  I don't know the owner of the target planet, and the recall tab dose not appear on the fleets page.

My thought is that somone has figured out how to hack the system for extra resources.  But I'm damned if I know how they did it.

Anyoine know any other way to recall a transport mission?

:P

Well that is weird, I can't see someone hacking the system to THAT extreme tho.. they would probably be able to just add resources to their account if they can go as far as manipulate other's ships :P

I agree. After thinking about it, it's more likely to be some kind of wierd glitch.  It's annoying, because it's a harvester, and the target system is over 3 hours away.  I can only hope that when it gets back I'll have my harvester, and the fleet slot will open up as per normal.

That does sound weird, but I agree, especially with me studying computer science, that if he can manipulate ships, he probably could just add resources. I couldn't imagine the movement of ships coding could be easier than a simple addition of resources.

comp sci degrees are worthless =D

just get any 4 year and your professional certs and youll get a 100k job easy =D



I might change to psychology, double major, or have one or the other as a major and minor in the other, but cs degrees can make you loads of money if your good at it, its just that parts of it suck ass.

Actually a member of my guild also has a runaway harvester, it's gone on a very long transport mission, and the fleet tab will not com up, it gives this message, "We're sorry, but something went wrong.  We've been notified about this issue and we'll take a look at it shortly."

A ticket has been submitted, but no access to the fleet tab for up to 26 hours (the one way time of this transport) could be catastrophic.

I had the same thing happen, except I clicked on a debris field for an eight hour fleet save. Also sent two cargo and a few resources. Came home six hours later and it was returning from a transport. Wasn't the colony that the debris field was at, but one in the same system. Someone got some free resources.

For me, it was the parts where none of my professors actually knew what they were doing.  That, and the whole trying to teach myself 300 level CS courses with bad hangovers led to me switching over to Economics & Business.  Ironically, I am now a product manager working directly with a software team.  It's more fun (for me at least) figuring out how to build something and how it should work from a user standpoint than doing the development...

Kroab sounds just like what happened to me but mine went on a 75 hour journey with 1000 of my crystal (thankfully I had fleetsaved hours beforehand) apparently they say it was a bug. Has yours been fixed yet?

Hey guys, since when your teacher are bad you switch to another field?  I would rather switch university and move to a university that specialise in my field of study.

By the way, studying for the paper is worthless.
If you study, study for the knowledge and for the social network that you can take advantage to build your future career.

The field can be boring and monotonous at times too though, and I've experienced my share of instructors that don't necessarily know how to do things the best way.
