When you land your Reaver for a field repair on an incline, do not point the nose up the incline!
Your Reaver will slide backwards, and as soon as you exit it and the left wing touches you your game will crash.

This happened to me 3 times today, so avoid it!

(Happened minutes ago, logged back in, grabbed a Flash, and as soon as I arrived at my Reaver it despawned :pinch: )

Like...this... ;) ?




...used it when reporting the bug myself. So yes - I experienced this too. Record is 4 times in a row before someone tipped me off as to the "no touch" thing.

Couple this with the "bouncing reaver" syndrome you get with hover3 since gu2, and it's actually a real pain to land and repair now :D . Almost thinking of getting nano repair.

Never had this bouncing problem with my Hover3. Make sure you don't hold the S key while landing.
W and S increase/decrease thrust, so as soon as you lost your velocity you can stop pressing S. Pressing S causes the Reaver to fly upwards when close to the ground.

I think this was fixed in the client hotfix today.

Yea thing is I use analog throttle, wich is probably the culprit here. Its calibration and all is right, but I'll post a small clip later and you can see the annoying little bugger bounce. More for amusement than anything else.

Ed: i think its about the analog feeding continuos data even when stationary...wich gives the same effect as pressing 's' as you describe. I wouldn't call it a bug exactly, but an unwanted side-effect that appeared after they changed airphysics (whatever they did) slightly with gu2. Before that I could land fine.

On the bug fix: YEEEEES!

I "solved" the bouncing prob...or a workaround at least...if I press 's' just quickly once after letting go of my analog throttle (when speed is at ~0 depending on pitch), it somehow resets the feed from the analog...and the rever bouncy-bounce-dance will not start. Yey workaround!
