This might seem something stupid to ask, but is there a way to determine when downtime will be?
Each solar system has its own downtime and almost all of them take place later then adverticed. From my experience so far, 5~10 secs after the adverticed downtime would be “usual”, but i just got wrecked 11:00:21 server time (according to the kill information export), i.e. 21 seconds after the adverticed downtime.
I know that when the server starts, some services start at a delay, most notoriously the contract system is often not available for minutes after the game server’s back up. Is this also the case at downtime, i.e. some functionality no longer being available while you’re still connected? And if it is, is there an order in which server subsystems go down, or is it just random?
