What happened: 4 of my foundry ships were destroyed and or stolen, and a proto Q was shot up in PVE Player(s) with issue: Serious Squirrel Server: NA Time (cb:time): Within the last 12 hours before this post Playfield: ECC Structure Name(s): ACP - Gold Coins, ACP - Gold Teeth, ACP - More Gold, ACP -
Gold Bars, ACP - Spare Proto Q Structure ID(s): 4806201, 4806204(2 of the lost foundry ships, the other 2 must have been stolen as they no longer appear in registry even as deleted) 7664775 is the proto Q which is all shot up How can we help you now: Either an admin messed up or we had a hacker or exploiter who figured out how to damage ships in pve I would like the ships returned to their previous state and guilty people punished if it can be determined who did it
No one exploited anything, A drone blew up your ships and I harvested it. I tried to be the nice guy and reach out to Rexxus and explain everything and he called me a blatant liar, saying I exploited something. I looted two blown up ships after killing a random drone that was flying around. You want your stuff back come to Alliance HQ i’ll give it all back. I don’t want to play a game where an admin calls me a liar and acts like I did something I didn’t even do.
He said I exploited the drone mission, I haven’t even completed the first few quest in the game and have no clue what that even is. Anyway, like I said. I don’t want to play this server if I’m going to be called a liar twice. He called me a liar when I asked for a corpse back a few days ago for no reason at all.
Conspiracy… admins are really bissy at the moment and stressed out to the hilt as they have so many problems going on if you have any issues please just make a ticket no more no less info makes life simpler and no one points fingers rexxx im sure will look at the server logs before he sorts out this ticket.
so just be patient and wait in the mean time it woudl be good if you gave the guy back his things.
It took me one hour to reproduce the whole situation and it was no hacker but kind of an exploiter.
I always feared it would happen if people find out about it but was maybe naive.
Now IF @Conspiracy gives you your stuff back then there is a 1% chance that one of the guys MISSCLICKED a quite obvious action and acted in such a way that it RANDOMLY destroyed your ships… then I am fine with it.
But let me explain what happened.
For Alliance I created a mission which spawns a Drone and their task is to destroy that drone. That should train Alliance some shooting. Cool.
The problem with that chapter / mission is, that you can repeat it every time you deactivate and activate the mission. So toggle the chapter couple of times and you can have 50 drones… on PVE… destroying everyone everywhere.
A warning alarm got me yesterday already as I saw this:
A 2mb playfield log file?
Yes, because it is flooded with a warn message, resulting from that drone chapter.
I found out later and during the night I already wanted to remove that mission today. But I guess I was too late.
Little background knowledge here is at the very top line: the ADK mission only get activated IF the previous Alliance mission got completed.
And that first mission can only get completed at the Alliance Starter planet.
So the only people who were at THAT time at THAT position were only two Alliance guys.
Part of the issue here Rex is I lost 4x alien core foundry ships and no way to know how much gold (I dumped a large cargo crate of gold ingots, and atleast 4 large cargo crates of gold ore into those ships last night to process along with many other resources stored in them from my OAM over the last few weeks. (by foundry I mean the agarage ships the foundry)
