before entering the docking slit, it rotated 90º.
Some stations are built differently than most ones, which make exceptions from the currently programmed rules. I already added many exceptions just this job looks endless. If you remember which station is the problematic then I can reproduce and fix it once.
I've got bounced twice today using ILD. Once I was trying to ILS into a ConStore near the Witchpoint - which rotate faster than the normal stations.
The other time I was going to file myself into a bog standard Octahedron station (OK, it's actually a cuboctahedron, or a truncated cube. Meh.) when it (or I) did a sudden 90deg rotation. Bang ! Flying backwards at full tilt with a screen full of "(Equipment Name} Is damaged" messages and just enough time to think "WTF?" before crashing into the Navigation Buoy solved my problems.
But to be honest, a bit of uncertainty on the equipment front is good for a Jameson's cortical activity. If it wasn't for insane other drivers and the ever-present risk of a puncture, driving long distances would be even more
