Ok strangest bug bug i've had to date.
I was at a pos with my capital char, launched a ship from the SMA and then boarded it with this char, but when i did this the client became unresponsive (couldnt click or do anything, but could still type and spin camera). After a few minutes of this i decided to try and relog the char.
On re-entering the game on that char, it wouldnt load past "checking navigation systems", yet on the capital char i was also using, she was visable in space, lockable, in all the channels she should have been in, but the client was stuck on the checking navigation systems.
I tried clearing the cache aswell as deleting the settings folder, and this didnt work. I was also able to log out and back in with the capital character with no problems, so that rules out a lag issue.
After petitioning i got the char moved 1 jump away, and i could log her out and back in with no problems, but as soon as i went back to the system the problem started in, the issue was still happening, logged out and stuck on checking navigation systems.
I also tried swapping ships a second time, and the problem repeated itself.
I've heard of other pilots having the same problem, and the only method the GM's have of fixing it at the moment is to move the char out of the system, which in 0.0 conflicts is less than ideal. I'm currently stuck again and am waiting til after dt to see if the problem fix's itself.
Anybody else have any info on fixing this issue? I have filed a bug report already on this issue.
Edit: I forgot to mention, I also tried logging the character in on a seperate PC to double check it wasnt an issue with my machine, and the problem persisted. It definitly seems to be something server side causing the problem.
