dead Warp Porter attendant

Post by SwissyJim » Wed Oct 04, 2017 2:39 pm

Ok... so here's a dumb question. Played with a buddy, and he accidentally teleported into the warp portal at the CU base. He got shot at, and fired back, killing the attendant. Now, how the hell do you activate the portal? :P I go over, click the destination, the portal moves but I never get an alignment notification and cannot turn it on. I've clicked the destination number, but there is nothing else I can see to do. What am I doing wrong (besides punishing my buddy! :mrgreen: )

Using the panel inside the station and waiting for it to align should be enough. It can take a bit to spin.

Since this is at Outpost 448, could be a related bug where the Warp Station gets stuck on a turret while turning towards certain destinations:

That's how you get free warp travel (at the cost of increasing chaos levels). Same works for repair depots.
If you use the station screen to choose the destination, it should work for you. (Unless it's encountering the bug that Tom R mentioned)

must be the bug then... it turns as if aligning, then nothing. I've wait quite awhile with no results. I'll try another portal and see. And maybe a repair depot or two. I'm already at chaos lvl 6 so who cares!

Yeah, the Long Range Warp Station in Sector 0 is broken. It should be fixed in the next update. Sorry for the trouble!
