This will not be allowed. Will not ship to TQ like this. If you could throw me the name of one of these sites I will get a defect entered so we remember to fix this.Big smile

8. If I dock with the structure browser open, the citadel correctly shows "View outside structure" as an option in the station window, but if I dock with it closed, it shows "Enter Ship Hangar" even if I am already in the hangar.


3. Was someone already in control?

No, since no one from my corp was online on SISI at that time. I am not sure if there is a problem with the ownership. It showed under "my citadels", but not under my corps citadels.

Edit: It shows partly as owned by my corp and partly by something like "The Rare Glitch Project".

I would like to see brighter colours used on the 'holograms' when anchoring citadels. It's quite hard to see them against the dark background of space currently. Just a tiny quality of life thing.

Please save my sanity!

How do I 'manage' this thing? I do not see an option, tried inside, in space, in the structure browser....

It was anchored without issue by this character (the ceo) but I have tried with another character as well. It is located in Aderkan.

I noticed if I'm tethered to a citadel, if I eject it still shows my name as being in the ship and stays tethered.

How does one go about finding and warping to these citadels, I could find no way to do it, other than a premade bookmark.

My medium citadel in Onnamon, planet V, managed to get into secured state without being fully repaired. In fact it only repaired 9% of its armor and I cannot do anything with its fitting.

Also it is not possible to warp to a bookmark created from offline or anchoring citadel. The error message is misleading stating that the warp lock cannot be obtained for warping or alignment.

Any special restrictions for anchoring in wormholes? Currently, moonlocking prevents hostiles from easily setting up a beachhead for an invasion. Is that defensive measure going away with the release of citadels?

I did my first brawl today with a yellow blinky skiff. https://imgur.com/6tBCdR7

-the anticapital-missles didnt shot(not even the charon, that i tried before), there were no antisubcap-missles on the market.
-the traktor and the repulsor had no noticible effect
-the skiff could not fight back. the hobs didnt wanted to shoot the fighters

In that screen shot you are using both repulse and tractor at the same time, did you try one or the other?

  1. Combat probing Citadels - When probing Citadels if you scan one down to 100% and then scan another location the result will degrade back to an un-warpable state. This is the same behavior we currently have for ships and deployables, so this is understandable, but it would be preferable that these results remain without needing to bookmark them. Structures are essentially celestials and cannot move without being unanchored and reanchored which takes a significant amount of time unlike a ship warping around a system. In particular this would be helpful for scouting the locations of all structures in a system. I live in w-space, and we regularly scout and catalog the locations of hostile POSs when exploring new systems. POSs are currently tied to moons, so we can scout these without ever needing to use probes. With the new structures we will need to probe them down to locate and put eyes on the hostile staging structure. This is already going to announce our presence to the locals more than we needed to do with the old POS system, I would prefer to be able to drop probes, quickly scan the structures and pull my probes before needing to warp around to look at them or make bookmarks.

  2. Probing while tethered - Currently you cannot launch probes while tethered, you get an error stating that "Your ship is realigning its magnetic field, please wait a moment." However if I leave the tether, either by flying out of range or warping off, I can launch probes and then return to the safety of the tether and continue probing. I don't have a particular preference one way or the other, but I feel you either should be able to probe while tethered in which case launching probes should be allowed or it should be disallowed entirely as it is currently when inside POS forcefields.

Slight bug found tonight;
Docked at medium citadel
Entered Hanger, noted the button had changed to View Outside.
Took control of citadel and did some checks
Released control of citadel and button had changed to Enter hanger but I was already in the hanger view
Clicked button and view changed to outside view again but button stayed the same at Enter Hanger.

Did this test twice more and it was repeatable.

You can anchor the citadel if you have Station Management roles, but to actually manage the station you need CEO/Director roles. It is also known that the interface is buggy, with some people with those roles having access and others not. You also need to click the "Take Control" option

I truely hope it isn't limited to that in the full release.

Yes, i tried them single handed and both. Maybe i don't understand proper what they should do.
