Problem – Q&A
This is my first time trying the sandbox mod. And I seem to have an issue where the map is flickering. It flickers and shows all objects and then disappears. This happens over and over. I am noticing that in the lower right corner, the "Sector Transition" is repeating over and over again.
This usually happens when the GM activates the sandbox, hitting the 'Activate Sandbox' button before a ship is spawned with the required name. The Sandbox is programmed for up to 8 ships with a specific name. These include:
The rest of the list can be found on the Sandbox thread. Without the full name (including the 'TSN') entered exactly as above, the script doesn't function correctly.
You can have ANY one of the eight names in ANY ship slot (i.e. you can run the Sandbox with just the TSN Horizon in ship slot 2 and no other ship spawned). If you do, the GM needs to connect via this ship (in the example above, you'd select the TSN Horizon and then select the GM console. One thing to note is to stick to the ship slots as assigned because of some comms messages (e.g. Slot 1 - TSN Sabre, Slot 2 - TSN Horizon)
Hope this helps!
Fantastic that worked like a charm!
