I lost 4 cargo holds full of materials because my ship crashed into a
mountain, I typed the words 'cruise home' and before i had time to read the
screen my ship had flown into the mountain and crashed. I lost 10 hrs mining
and lumberjacking, seems to me that the stupid thing would stop if the land is
too high, seems to me that most of the time it does. we should at least be
able to teleport to the teleporter to clean out the ship, i dont care what
rank the navigator is he wouldnt fly into a mountain in 2 leaps!
I haven't flown or crashed myself. However, I'd like to agree with that
crashing while flying but not while saying does appear to be a bit odd.
I can see why, for game play reasons, it would be necesaary to have
ships behave this way and I can also see how it could be explained
However, real ships do get beached or wrecked at sea all the time and
I don't see why unseen sea currents and rocks are somehow more easily
avoidable than a mountain. Navigators stop sailing when the ship can't
sail further, surely they should be capable of stopping flight when a
great huge mountain range is in the way?
