Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Either give us the option in ground stations/ports to change your loadout and check emails, or add the option to visit the Tempest for that reason WITHOUT completely departing the planet to do so.

I cant be the only person to be getting sick of the fact that i'm forced to entirely depart the planet to change my loadout and check my emails when not visiting an open planet map with forward stations dotted about the place. We either need the option to do that in ports/Nexus/Hyperion/Caves etc, or we need to have the button press option of visiting the Tempest only WITHOUT departing the planet. I believe this would help the story flow on Kadara in particular where in Reyes and Sloanes story arc this is necessary to progress the main journal story missions/objectives.

 

Alternatively cut the planet depart cutscene down, or speed it up (whichever is easiest).

Or just give us the logical option of skipping cutscenes...? Even ME2 had that. Seriously, leaving Eladeen was fun for the first time with those bug things in focus, but nobody wants to watch that every time.

Yeah, I'd also like to see the option of visiting the Tempest without having to depart to orbit every time.

Concur, and the fact that you can skip conversations makes it even more infuriating.

 

My guess is that the devs are using the cutscenes to hide loading time, ala the infamous elevator in ME1. If so, they are kinda being idiots. DAI had this figured out by giving us interesting things to read during loading times and letting your machine determine how fast it could load content (ironically meaning that people with better rigs never had the time to read the background text).

I think the tempest should just be loaded on every planet. So you can walk into the tempest like an open door and walk out. The squadmates not in your party hang around the ship or outside it in outposts or something. Couldn't be too hard to do right?

Have you been on the Tempest? Thing can barely keep itself loaded when you're there. Large smile

The possibility to return to the tempest without living the planet would be very nice!

If for one would LOVE to gaze at my settlements through the windows of the Tempest... ^_^

Best place to see the Settlements is from the Tempest!  otherwise your having to run around with armor on and 2 dum dum's falling all over the place.

 

Biggest issue i have right now and its almost making it so I want to go do something else, is that Shield Augment is only sold on Nexus that I can find so far, and they only have 1.  I need 10, so I have to go down to Nexus, buy 1, go back to tempest watch the 2 minutes cut scene over and over...
