      Default jump drives and terran sectors

      for some reason the jumpdrive can not lock onto the terran
      trans-orbital accelerators
      is this a bug or an intentional feature?
      how can i get to terran sectors further than asteroid belt without going though every last trans-orbital accelerator?

      AFAIK it's intentional and explained as being part of the Terran security system that you cannot target TOAs with your jumpdrive.

      Encountered the same yesterday. Also tried to fly to Moon and Earth. Obviously I hadnt a rank high enough so they hunted me in Moon and destroyed me in earth sector. The wierd thing is I didnt get a message, to not enter the sectors.

      With all the sound bugs, the message probably just got swallowed by another one.

      You dont even get the permission to use your jumpdrive within Terran space after finishing the Terran plot.
      So its always the long way, if you want to go to one of the solar planets.
      This is one of the things which i wouldnt mind being changed in the next patch.

      I can understand it to a certain extent as those gates are not jump gates so theres nothing to lock onto. But yeah you should be able to jump out of them.

      Hi,

      I thought it a bug at first but it's performing as intended. Game Lore wise they're not jump gates, just oribital accelerators so your jump drive cannot lock onto them. I've never had touble jumping out of Terran sectors into 'normal' sectors though.

      If this really bothers you check out the Egosoft Scripts & Modding Forum for TC as there is a mod/script which lets you jump to Terran 'gates' in the usual way.

      Cheers,

      Scoob.

      its not a security messure. in fact terran space gates aren't even space gates. they are magnetic accelerators that send you traveling at less than the speed of light. the space gates of the main x-universe send you traveling at faster than the speed of light and are incompatable with the terran gates. sorry to burst your bubble. :-)
