I have been assigned to pilot a small transport vessel to a location, but when i try to enter the cockpit, the screen loads as blank.
I still have the combine frames, with my character info, control, inventory, ect. but the main view area is just the blue background.
I have asked my copilot if there is perhaps a permission issue, but he has not responded with a solution, and i cannot pilot the ship.
If this IS a permission issue, i understand and will get it resolved through the proper channels, but it doesnt seem like that is the case, as permissions seem to have been given to me to enter and control the ship.
Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide.
If oyu have the permissions to see the cockpit button on the sidebar, you should be able to see the cockpit screen. Try clicking the enter cockpit button again (though presumably you have already tried that). Maybe try leaving the ship and then re-entering to see if that resets it. Otherwise, make a bug report form in the bugbase (link is at the bottom of the sidebar) so the devs can deal with it.
last night this problem was also rampant so if you came on last night and your browser hasn't re queried the server you will still see the blank screen. Have you tried to do a forced refresh on the page ctrl+F5 on most browsers I know of.
Sounds like the old problem, from when being able to see out of the cockpit and no being pilot was introduced. People were already in the cockpit/command centre and when they asked to be assigned, they were getting blank screens.
The best remedy is to go into another room, or outside of the ship/facility and either re-enter the ship/facility and/or room that the cockpit/command centre is located. If that doesn't work, then report the problem here, but be sure to check and see if there are any other similar reports, before you begin to create a new one.
