Nexus Update

Posting from D'ni - UruObsession(1) Neighborhood...

I've got some new developments regarding all of the people who can't get their KIs to log in to the lattice anymore, but I'd recommend taking it with a grain of salt. This news isn't coming directly from anyone at the DRC, but is instead being reported by GreyDragon from Cyan... but he has spent a lot of time in the cavern working with the explorers and the DRC, so I trust his word.

When you take photos and write notes with your KI a copy is saved locally to your KI, as well as making a "backup" of sorts in the lattice. Whenever you log in to the lattice, it compares your local data to the backup... so the more data you store in your KI, the longer it takes to log in. Now that things are far enough along that we can create our own marker missions that's one more thing that gets stored as data in your KI and the lattice, and given the nature of the marker missions these can be a LOT of data to deal with. If your KI takes too long to synch up with the lattice, then it just times out altogether and log in is impossible.

Supposedly this is being worked on, so hopefully anyone who has lost a KI or is having long login times with their current one will be taken care of soon. Until then, I urge all explorers to be responsible with what they keep in their KI, as well as being careful when creating and sharing marker missions.

Who would have known that finally progressing in the GZ recalibration would end up throwing such a wrench into things?
