Instant death when logging in

Recommended Posts

Upon logging in yesterday I instantly died, circumstances and conditions are as follows:


Logged off as commander in my Knarr in a cave, checked event logs to confirm I did indeed embark as commander, and not as passenger, (relevant extract below).

Upon logging in next day I got a very brief view of the knarr, as if I were looking through the walls at it, followed by death popup. red tunnel.

I had some issues finding my corpse, which was not in the cave, and did not appear on the surface above the tile I logged out on, I did find it in the end, displaced 3 tiles away from my log off position, above ground, but obscured by trees/bushes.

[15:27:29] You are dead.

From the look of it I was placed in the centre of a rock tile on logging in, instead of on the tile where I logged off, I'm unsure if my corpse was further displaced after death, before/during popping to surface, or if my character was displaced that far away from the log out point, either way, I luckily was able to find my corpse, rather than have it destroyed in a rock tile.

That would go a long way to explaining the how of the death, yes, still a little baffled as to why the corpse ended up so many tiles from the point of death, but since the corpse was recoverable, I'm inclined to leave that alone, I could have ended up having to mine out my corpse from a nearby set of caves after all.


Thanks for joining the dots, I'll send some pottery eventually ;)

I think corpse is moved to a nearby open tile - still a better solution than being "trapped" in the rock tile where it would be most likely be deleted (I rarely could salvage items from collapsed tiles after mining them out again)
