Why is it that you cannot load unassigned entities from your ship to another?
When trying to transfer ships or vehicles, that I do not have access to, from inside my ship to another of my ships, I get the following error:
“An error occured: No access to dock, must be on crewlist, pilot, commander, owner or open to all.”
So unless I obtain access, those entities are stuck inside my ship for all time? Note that these are already inside my ship and should just be a tractor beam away from being moved.
I don't recall this always having been the case and there's no mention of it in the sync reports (I searched back to the end of Y13), but a few people I've asked said that it was changed. I can only think about how pirates used to dock fighters/freighters and then transfer them to a starport. This seems to be a similar situation to how the unboarding from a docked entity rules were modified without anyone bothering to announce it.
Right, but I'm pretty confident that that rule did not exist in the past. I do not want to release these ships into open space because they're docked for a reason. That being said, I've also got 146 vehicles inside a ship that cannot land...meaning that they are absolutely stuck because I cannot jettison them into space.
Unless I jettison them into space (completely defeating the purpose of them being docked) or get access to them, they're stuck inside the ships they're docked on? Tractor beams don't work because I'm not on an electronic crewlist?
I didn't read the previous posts, so if someone else mentioned it, ignore me.
You always had to have access to do this, I don't remember a time when you didn't. Plus as far as I could tell, you always had to have the same access for what you are moving and for what is being moved.
As in, it wasn't enough to have access to the vehicle from crewlist while being pilot of the target ship. For some reason, it only worked as pilot of both. Maybe that changed, or I been doing it wrong, but I remember I had to be constantly assigning myself pilot to everything.
Only way to remove those things I guess is to undock them, instead of transfer.
