Beam me up Scotty

Strange but funny issue on Patrick's server yesterday.

I was landed on the carrier near French Frigate in the NCA 777-200, in Guam-to-SoCal. Just laying there and chatting with hazard, we where doing carrier landing with airliners, then suddenly, for no apparent reason, the carrier disapeared under me. It actually happened 2 times, but the first time i thought ground objects dissapeared. The second time, I opened the NAV menu only to find out i was now about 480 miles from french Frigate O_o ...

what happened is a mystery... But it was cool because Hazard then looked for me with username circle turned off. This could actually be very nice it could be done on purpose, allowing some kind of ''search parties'' to be organized.

I tryied to recreate the glitch, without success. Didn't wait very long tho, it was late and I was tired. I want to know if we get teleported at a random place, or always 480 nM west of French Frigate.

anyone had this happen before?

Find any WWII fighters while you were on the other side?

Haha, that's very strange. I've heard of carriers randomly disappearing with airplanes on them - but not being located elsewhere with you still there!

Well either that, or it was the final count down as Gunny suggested.

Actually, it's usually caused by the server when respawning ground objects. I think the YS client, over time, loses the exact position of map center (decided by the server), and then it is only recovered when the objects are revived.

There is a possibility that I respawned the ground objects. I did that randomly because it had been a while and I thought it might be needed. I don't know when all this happened and I don't remember the exact time I respawned the objects. :?

It was instatenous! Couldn't see a thing but a carrier vanishing under me!

Do not worry, it was fun, and it can be exploited for more fun :)

@Mobiyus A movie of the same name Carrier Nimitz is transported back to 1941 Pearl harbor Just before the attack.
