Ship hovering in Bay issue

I’m trying to leave a station but my freelander keeps spawning in the bay as if it’s hovering over the ground with its engines on. I can’t reach the ladder to get in.

Is there a way to fix this without claiming it at another location? I had picked up a stock of helmets from microtech along with whatever is in its inventory and don’t want to lose it.

Store the ship
Remove the powerplant
Spawn the ship
Enter the ship, sit in the pilot chair and turn of the engine (i)
Store ship
Add the powerplant

Should fix your problem

LOL. Ok, thanks.

Yeah its a known bug in this patch. You can also claim ship at another station to fix it. But you lose any cargo in it.

Does not shutting your ship down completely when you land cause it?

It helps to shut down your ship after landing, but this issue also occurs if you were in mid-flight during a 30k etc.


It “should”, but welcome to Star Citizen. :slight_smile:

As a general practice before I store the ship I always turn off engines but leave it powered up. This ensures it stays “grounded” while the shields are already charged up by the time I get to my ship.

Just throwing my 2 cents in to this discussion.
