Planes explode during timeout period?
« on: July 30, 2012, 12:11:45 AM »
This has happened to me twice so far. My internet connection has been especially laggy today (to the point of rage), and I've also been flying Aerospace an abnormally large percentage of the time today. Yeah, bad idea to start off with.

But it gets worse! Twice, I've had my plane spontaneously detonate while sitting on the runway. Once, was after landing, and repairing my Sparrowhawk after a trolling run, and the second, was after landing and repairing my SHIVA after a bombing run. Both times, the game disconnected for about 3-5 seconds, and then I exploded. I stayed disconnected for about 3 seconds after that, then came back to find that I'm dead. No Shiva, no Sparrowhawk, no money, just dead.

It's really beginning to piss me off. Has anyone else experienced this?

Sometimes the runway gets hungry and makes a snack ::)

Its a know " bug", someting about the tarmac of it. Random chance of happening
-while you land
-after you land and still on the move
-after you land and stopped
-after you land, full stop and shutdown
-during repair

the runway isn't shy about the time to eat ;D
and the first line of my signature tells the truth
MWLL is balance: Mechs get legged, Hovers flip over, tanks get stuck and planes get eaten by the runaway

I'm just avoiding ASF until the landing and ramming issues are resolved.

Update: I've just learned how to make my plane do a 360 flip on the runway. It's called 'piss of the runway and hope and pray that it sees you as worthy of a second chance'.

Runway is the only one who can make it to Khan rank without ever moving.
Do not mess with the runway, runway always wins.
