I am on a 'safe' flight from Islo to Jordan, and I woke up and noticed I had missed stopping at Echo with a cargo mission. So I decided to divert to it, but it won't let me.

I tried New Hovlund, Cidade and Fuel XXXVIII, and am not offered the option to divert anywhere. Also tried refreshing in case it was one of 'those' glitches, and nothing.

I have been able to divert in the past on regular, blue routes.

Thes.

You can't divert if you don't have enough fuel to reach the intended destination, remember?

I was *right* over top of the fuel skyland (plane overlapped it slightly), and going from there to Cidade, another hour away travel away. So I was fine in the matter of fuel.

Thes.

There's a certain minimum distance you have to reach before you can divert. I'm not sure what it is, but if you were right on top of it then you probably were too close.

Not if I wasn't heading there already or leaving there, no. This was midflight, I decided to change where I was heading, and tried to divert to the skyland, and it wouldn't let me. It also wouldn't let me divert to any other skyland, and it's not like I was far away; I was in the center of the core.

Despite the Male Answer Syndrome bouncing about, it really was a bug, guys. there was no reason for divert not to be offered.

Thes.

Wrong gender there.

Male Answer Syndrome is only *mostly* exhibited by males, hence the name, but it is not exclusively male (some people have suggested renaming it Geek Answer Syndrome). But just being female doesn't mean you are immune to the effects of MAS ;-)

Thes.

The map is due for some serious work. I don't think it'll happen soon, but there is still some odds and ends in it that don't work.

I still want you guys to write a Javascript map, or at least to divorce the Flash map from the non-queue parts of the interface. It's bothersome to reload the whole mess when just one part's misbehaving.
