It's me again :D  Still playing "crossing the styx" and I'm in a mission where I need to wait for 8 minutes for my jump drives to recharge while fighting endless wings of shivans. After 8 minutes have passed I get message "Jump to Gamma Draconis", but when I hit alt+j it says "engine failure. cannot engage warp drive".  There isn't any jump node showing on my radar, I tried searching for it, fighting shivans until I died but nothing, I just don't know how to pass this mission or is it a bug maybe?

I google and read forums for this topic but one has encountered something similar. Btw I tried to create fso log but every time I run game with debug, it crashed at startup so it doesn't create the log.... Can someone help me?

Last mission in mission simulator is "Scramble" CTS_06.FS2  which I have passed so the next mission which I have problem with must be CTS_07.FS2  :)

I played through this mission. I encountered no errors there.

There is a jump node, that should be visible straight ahead of you. Even it is only targetable if you are near enough.

You can only jump out within the Jump Node.


So there is the question, why this jump node is invisible for you?

Yeah I thought that there must be a jump node somewhere, but who knows why I can't see it :S I will try to play a little more, there must be error somewhere with my game or mod....

Well if you can not see it i could create a workaround so that you are able to find/target it nonetheless.

Well, seems to be another problem. I would like to know, if you can see Jump Nodes in missions, that take not place in a Nebula?

Yes, those nodes I see perfectly fine.

UPDATE:  I just went straight ahead and I found it after a while, it became visible on radar and visual when I came to the point of entering the node. Then it became a little more visible, but when I got just a further away from here I lost her on radar and on my visual.

Seems to be, that the Jump Node is rendered like any other ship in this mission.

But i am unable to reproduce this behaviour, regardless of the Flags unfortunately.

If you still need it, i still attached a workaround version. In this one i added a nav buoy in the center of the jump node, that is always targetable. So you can still play the mission by regular means without to hurry the straight line to the jump node.
