I have just travelled in sub light to a cirtain city, is appears to have taken me to the middle of know where, now its telling me that I have to fly for 40 days to get to where I origionally wanted to go. Please can you take a look into this.
"Sub light" is travel within a system. Cities are on planets. You would need to fly using sublight TO the planet, then descend into the city.
That said, I don't think it's possible to get anywhere within a system that it would take 40 DAYS - at any speed - to reach even the furthest point in that system.
Here's what I think you did:
I think you were using hyperspace travel, not sublight. I think you took the planetary co-ordinates of the city, and punched them into the travel interface as your destination. I think you flew across most of the galaxy to somewhere in the "Northwest" corner, and have only now realised your mistake.
I think your thread should not be titled "Problem with sub light..." but "Did not understand how to read co-ordinates".
I think you don't have any kind of valid question or concern, but need to mark it off as a mistake and something never to do again, and move on.

If you are flying in atmosphere, which i imagine you would be if flying to a city, did you by any chance use the mouse wheel accidentally to change the speed to its slowest setting? On a 20x20 planet that would be a very long time but still not sure if it would be 40 days.
I would suggest a screen shot and bugbase myself if all is otherwise correct.
Yeah I have stoped and then tried to travel again, im in hyper at the moment, because I am in the middle of space..... nothing for days worth of traveling. Is there not a way the SWC can move me back to where I was trying to land.....??
Ok.. that's just a picture of someone flying in hyperspace...
perhaps your ship events would be of better use?
stuff like this:
Year 10 Day 107, 3:37 The computer confirms the coordinates to (xx, xx) and you engage the sublight drive.
Year 10 Day 107, 1:27 Your ship exited hyperspace at (xx, x) in the system blurbed.
Year 10 Day 106, 16:28 The computer confirms the coordinates to (-xxx, -xxx) and you engage the hyperdrive motivator.
Year 10 Day 106, 16:27 Your ship stopped travelling at (xx, x).
Year 10 Day 106, 15:34 The computer confirms the coordinates to (xx, x) and you engage the sublight drive.
Year 10 Day 106, 15:27 Your ship stopped travelling at (xx, x).
That should clearly show the sequence of things, and if you entered orbit and immediately went into hyperspace, you had a bug. If not, it would be documented.
I see the time frame of 35 Days, but I also see you flying a A-99, which is one of the slowest ship in the galaxy. If what you say is accurate, then it's a bug for you to suddenly go from sub to hyper.

Well no, becuase the co-ords I was already at were copy and pasted from my PM directly into the correct boxes, I didn't go into hyper even if I did, why would it take 40D to get to where I already am???
