Shields races – October 24th

Moon, Paul, Chris and Pat came today. Sea laso appeared, but having problems with her boat, gave up and didn’t even start 1st race 😦

In first race, C2, Paul lost his cam and that let him and Chris to a collision, taking both from the race. The three survivors had a bureaucratic race with nothing of note.

Moon about 50m ahead me

and Pat following us

Chris jump ahead in second race, followed by Moon and myself, Paul and Pat. Nobody was able to threaten Chris leadership, but Moon and I had a duel during all the course, exchanging positions many times. Near the end, Paul approached us but not threatening our positions.

Chris, Moon and me.

Our final battle (Moon and myself)

  1. Only individual crashes, that’s good to know. So it’s not pandemic. πŸ˜‰

    Maybe the Shields doesn’t crash as often as the Bandit boats because it is much slower?


    • Yesterday, at Paul’s Shields races, a new problem (to me) appeared. In 3rd race, rounding the lighthouse, suddenly my boat stoped, speed droped to zero, twice. In both occasions I watched under water and I wasn’t grounded (my first thought) and it wasn’t in a sim crossing. After the races, Emileigh reported that she experimented this once, in same place.



  2. the crashes and the script errors are two different pair of shoes i think.

    The crashes are mostly disconnect crashes and those happen randomly to everyone.

    The script errors are different on different boats and influenced very much by the individual lag or internet connection. Yesterday at the after cruise some one said this: Technical explanation, a while ago the reassemby after a region crossing started to throw random link change events at scripts or in case of crewed vehicles, randomly change the link order as well. And often just not re-register a sitter at all. It’s not the scripts that err, it’s the serverside code handling transfers.
    But we see it as script errors.

    I think that is one of the problems which makes it so complicated

    • I can’t say I did understand any of that technical hogwash. 😐 All I understood and taking home with me is that LL fuked up!


        • Hai Bia!
          I just checked the Peoples settings and there are no changes to your status. You’re stil an author with all the necessary permissions. I had some bad fukups with WordPress myself in the last couple days tho. Yesterday a whole post with lots of photos and linked videos and all the works disappeared right when I was about to publish it. I guess our friendly Happiness Engineers are maybe angry at us … or sumfink. 😦

          You should give it some time, and try again later. In case you can’t write or publish anything until tomorrow morning, please let me know and I will complain at WordPress Boss Level. Paying good money for a service that gets more complicated, laggy and buggy every day. 😦
