Game mode: Online
Region: Official Server 2878
This is a bug that’s affected me more than once over a month or so. It occurs when you try to load into a server but are unable to get past the loading screen. The loading bar fills up or gets very close to filling up, but you never leave the loading screen. I believe your character does spawn into the game still, as the last time this happened my event log showed me dying of thirst at the time I was waiting at the loading screen. All items i was carrying on me decayed, of course.
The most recent time I believe I caught it in time, but I won’t know until I’m able to reinstall the game, as that is what fixed the issue the last time it occurred. Both times the bug occurred while I was trying to load from the server selection screen into my base in the highlands. Hopefully this can be addressed in the next patch.
- This has happened to me
- This has happened to someone I know
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Sign in to server
- Watch loading bar fill
- See it fill to max/almost max
- Remain on loading screen while character spawns in game
- Character loses thirst as player remains on loading screen, eventually leading to an unexpected and unannounced death in game
