Hanging teleports
Hi everybody. Often when I try teleporting using Firestorm, the teleport starts and the progress bar gets maybe half-way with the "requesting teleport" status but then seems to hang, and there is no Cancel button, no menu, no way out of it, even Ctrl-Q doesn't work. I wait there, unable to tell my friends that yes I really am on my way, and eventually after a couple of minutes, the only thing I can do is the drastic step of killing the Firestorm process, launch it again and log in, and try the teleport again, which then usually works immediately. The sims I am trying to get to are nothing special, usually fairly quiet. I have read that a big load of attachments can slow teleports, but I never wear more than a mainstream mesh body and head, basic clothes/hair/jewellery, and no HUDs, with ARC of 50k or so. Can anybody suggest what might be going wrong here? Thanks a lot.
