When I build a mining vessel and set it to mine latinum, it will proceed to the latinum nebula, but as soon as the cargo hold is full, it will stop and not go to the starbase to drop it off. And even if I select the ship, and order it to move, it just stays still. Anyone have the same problem, or know of any way to fix it? I have the v1.1 patch.
If you put buildings too close to the starbase and the ship does not have the room it needs to maneuver, this happens sometimes. Also if the ship unloading in front of it does not have a clear path away from the starbase, the other mining ships will stop and not move either. I know this because I built turrets too close to a trading station once and the Ferengi ships just stopped right behind the loading dock.

I know that problem from multiplayer games.... I guess that your starbase is simply to far away from the latinum nebulas... there is some kind of maximum range where the nebulas must be within.
