I am having an issue where when I set a course to a planet...Write Reply
I am having an issue where when I set a course to a planet my ship shows that it is heading to the planet selected but when I go back to the ship either during a review before I finalize my turn or when I look at it in the next turn I find that it is then heading to the target planets warp well instead of the planet. This has been hapening for the last few weeks. Usually that will really matter but there are times when it will.
Is anyone else having this new issue?
I am using the old game interface 90% of the time so I am not sure if this is a new issue with just the old interface or with both.
Anyone else seen this??

There is a setting to set way points automatically into warp well have you got this on?

Thanks but when I go to settings then Ship screen settings I have no option to open it. There is also no click box to the right of it as there is on the other settings.

Sounds like you are using the new interface planets.nu. So open under the old play.planets.nu and you should be able to un check the box.

No I am actually back to the old interface. I really do not like the new one and if I had to use it I would play a lot less planets.
I have tried to change that setting using both the Edge browser and also Firefox both with the play.planets.nu interface.
I have also seen some other bugs??? pop up using the old interface lately.
Frustrating...…….

It's both available in the old and new in PC using edge.

Very faint tick box.

Old version using Google and phone (but hard to see).

But could not find settings on the new UI and Google on phone.

Will have to try Firefox.

Anything to do with add-ons?

Its not a drop down box.

Open up settings in any game.
Around 3/4 of the way down is:

Ship Screen Settings
Under that is:
Show Next turn location [tick box] then Use Warp Wells Automatically [tick box]

I have mine unticked and it does not automatically move ship destination to the warp well to save on fuel.

Ahhh, so simple once you know that it is not a drop down. Thanks so much Martinr.

In the last week I have used this fix every day and I am still getting the error of the ship wanting to go to the warp well instead of the planet. I re set, turn off the go to wp well in settings and then the next time I log in it is again checked and most of my moves to planets were set to go to the Wp well.
I am now only playing in the classic interface so is that an indicator that the classic interface is getting buggy, no longer supported?

Perhaps, because the classic interface is, as we've been given to understand, no longer supported.

Thanks, I guess when the classic interface is no longer available or when it becomes too buggy to use us old guys , or at least some of us who played planets in the late 80s will just move on.
I have tried the new standard games and the new interface and I just can not get into them.

Probably. The rest of us will just have to hope that either enough funds will come in to support updating two parallel versions of the Client or, on the other hand, that enough new players arrive to make the new version worthwhile despite its deficiencies.

I have never used the warp well option and it's never turned on.

I don't use addonns.

I use edge for the PC and chrome for the phone (but don't actually play games on it).

So is it your PC that is resetting it. Add-ons activated.

I believe bugs are fixed on the old UI if mentioned by enough people but not any of the new features.

But the new UI has still to catch up to the old UI.

A few days ago I had a message from an interest game. But the new UI on a mobile does not have a section to go to for your interest games.

And on the old UI on my phone which has the interest section I cannot reply to messages or open forum posts which have a more to read the full post.

@Baer: in the next turn I find that it is then heading to the target planets warp well... (in first post)

i use the warp well option in the old interface, and it works GREAT ! i don't know if it makes a difference, but i am working my way thru some training games at the moment...

each turn it resets the warp well setting to the planet ! thus, no more 'dangling' warp well settings at the start of the turn. totally wonderful...

hope this helps, GhostWriter
