Since todays patch went live it doesnt allow changing ships from your orca bay during a combat timer. Can't confirms this for caps and supercaps but this is a major problem.

pretty sure this was aimed at the people who try to switch ships in space to kill missioners. well sounds like it anyway.

I think we can all give a collective round of applause for an end to no-risk PvP.

Long overdue. Better late than never.

well totally worthless fix.
when we cannot use anymore the orca to reship we can now warp to station haveing instadocks and instaundocks and swap ships with out timer. the hulk that aggressed by a can flipper cannot swap back to defense ship... what sucks imho personally for me is i have now trained a second time for something thats gets worthless. just when i have finished skills for my alts they nerf the game mechanics that the skilling became worthless. first a t3 unprobable booster and low sec mission runner and now an alt with orca support. that sucks. conclusion. dont train for something long.

Well you're all wrong, its clearly a bug because you can still launch a ship from orca, jump in it and have orca scoop up the old ship. Nothing changed except that it bugs out when you do it the normal way. This bug needs fixed asap.

worthless fix , its now oly bit more complicated to swap. orca pilot now launchs ship. other player boards the ship and orca pilot scoops ship.

And then someone steals your ship while you're trying to do that.

Someone said you can dock and switch ships while you can't switch ships from the SMA though, is it the 15 min aggro "I shot someone" or the 1 min "I can't dock/jump" timer that prevents using the SMA? The 1 min timer makes sense, but the 15 min timer doesn't.

Hi Everyone

This particular trick was patched out recently and deliberately, you will no longer be able to switch ships from a Ship Maintenance Array (in any ship) while you are under an aggression timer in High Security space. This will still work in Low Sec and Null Sec.

We are aware of the other method of switching ships (ejecting and having the SMA ship scoop them) and this is not against any rules, as it carries with it some more risks than the previous method of instantly switching from the SMA.
