It is strongly recommended that players delete their USER folder for the Public client after patching, particularly if you start encountering any odd character graphical issues or crash on loading. The USER folder can be found (in default installations) at C:\Program Files\Roberts Space Industries\StarCitizenPTU\LIVE. Hotfix 3.1.2 Updates Hotfix 3.1.1 Updates Patch 3.1.0 Notes
- Players should now respawn in their ship or best available location following a disconnect or client crash
Now when a player logs out in their ship bed or the client crashes, the next time you connect, the game will attempt to log you back into your most recent ship and location. Your ship will despawn after 10 minutes has elapsed if the ship is empty. If the player attempts to reconnect after this timeout, the player should respawn back in the ship in the best bed/seat available the next time the player connects, assuming the ship has not been destroyed.
