Frigate mission stuck

To anyone interested, after the Beyond update, I still have the same frigate missing since Next. I mentioned in a past thread that the mission clock stopped and it never came back. The timer is still stuck at the same time and the frigate is still not moving from the system it went to and one of the frigate command rooms is still permanently occupied.(tried deleting the room and rebuilding it, didn’t work) Can’t delete or destroy it. I reported it to zendesk again. They are probably focused on Beyond patches at the moment, which is perfectly okay and understandable, but if they can get around to it at some point, that would be great. There is no rush, though. :slightly_smiling_face:

Edit: replaced “freighter” with “frigate”

Is your Freighter missing or a Frigate? Is there a way to delete Frigates?

Previously you could dismiss a frigate from the Manage Fleet window by holding the middle mouse button (PC/Keyboard). Not sure if this has changed and or still possible.

Whoops! I will edit that. I ment to say “frigate”. The frigate has not returned. I am using a ps4 and currently there is no way to delete/dismiss it.

This bug/issue has been present in NEXT as well and I don’t think a solution was ever found, nor a cause that reproduces it.

Frigates that are out on a mission can sadly enough not be dismissed. Your frigate is most likely damaged, not being able to continue, hence the timer stopped. You are supposed to be reported about the issue and make a choice, risk losing it by having it continue the journey, or call it back for repair. Most likely you never received the report, causing you to have it stuck without an option to solve it.

Only possible solution I can think of, is trying to locate the frigate. Then hopefully be able to repair on the spot, to have it continue the mission. No guarantee this will work though.

Also see this previous NEXT topic with same issue:

I never realised we were actually discussing this in this ‘old’ NEXT topic, which you started yourself even :rofl:

I turned this topic into a new topic, considering the massive amount of changes with Beyond. I edited your now top post to include a link to the previous topic for reference.

I would try a Save Game editor, but on PS4 not a chance of course. I assume HG will look into it and fix some of those long standing issues.

Thanks. I’m sure, in time, the frigates and freighters will be touched on again by the team. Maybe they’ll add the dismiss/“your all fired” button. :rofl:
