[1.47] Interdictor Gravity Well Not working

by Teradyn » 31 Jan 2015, 23:05

When using targetted jumps (having a player targetted and using initiate hyperdrive to calculate a jump) it seems to be possible to circumvent the gravity wells of the Interdictor if you are using it as your target. On further testing, a jump can be created with a target inside the gravity well range of the interdictor without targeting a specific ship while the gravity wells are on.

It also seems that with the Imperial Interdictor you are pulled out of hyperspace as close as 25k to the interdictor when your jump crosses its gravity wells which should pull you out around 80k out with (if I recall correctly) a small penetration allowed. 25K close to the interdictor is not small penetration.

It would appear that the gravity well generators on the interdictors are not working as intended.

To any Imperials, I'm considering such behavior an exploitation of a bug. Don't do it.

Ditto on that. The New Republic CC7700e it does drop you out at 30k (Which I believe is its limit) as intended, however I did notice the same bug with targeting and jumping to the ship itself. In fact sometimes it threw me to a random place in the system if I did that.

Any NR exploiting this bug shall be punished.

The CC7700's range should be 60K

I had the random jump with my ISD too. Not sure if that is the same bug though. I even jumped into the Borleias Gravwell with my ISD for some weird reason as I jumped thorugh the interdiction field.

The Well drop range is Max Range -Random%

I thought that random% was for the 25% outer band of the gravity well's max range?

There's a guarantee that the ship will be dropped at least within something like 25 or 33% of the interdiction radius. Minimum distance however is unrestricted, so one could technically drop straight on the interdictor.

How is that supposed to work with the implementation of the individual gravity well generator idea?

It's unlikely that the separate gravity well projectors will be implemented for a while, but they were just planned to scale the max radius anyway.
