In the SZR Evening Joyride (D) group ride today (17:04 UTC / 19:04 CEST start) on the Three Villages Loop route, sometime after the first 20 minutes of all being well, the Yellow Beacon symbol and the fence (@Paul_Cooper_Ve_SZR) disappeared from the screens of some - but not all - riders.
Is this a known issue? I couldn’t find any cases listed here while running a quick search.
Apart from a few rare instances of Paul reappearing briefly in the neighbouring riders column on the right of the screen, he stayed invisible to what seemed the majority of riders for the rest of the ride, while continuing to ride with and message us, all while being alongside us from his point of view. From a quick straw poll in the chat, there seemed to be no correlation between the devices riders were using for Zwift and being able to see the YB or not.
The Yellow Beacon symbol sometimes reappeared in the mini map, way out to the left of the bottom of that box, but was generally not visible at all. I’m attaching a screen grab of my companion app (iPhone), showing the YB symbol far away from where the group with Paul was said to be riding.
Interestingly, the Red Beacon remained visible to all riders throughout the ride.
From time to time, I got the ‘RETURN TO GROUP’ message on my screen, despite the fence not being visible in game or in the mini map.
If this isn’t a known issue, please add it to the list of ‘features to tweak’. Thanks.
