Is the CR90 corvette supposed to dock/park this way?

Yes! (sarcasm) ................................... I doubt it :/

But a little more info would be helpful, such as which mission it is i.e. 1b0m1fw.tie. Please no names, only numbers, and defiantly don't use "It's the one where... blah blah blah" Mission number only :D

It's no good just posting a couple of images, and expecting us to instantly recognise what mission your trying to draw our attention too

Have you tested the mission with the original corvette to see if you get the same result?

Little details like that help if your wanting us to try and fix the problem.

It's 1b0m7fw.tie. Sorry if I took it for granted (it's the only mission with CRV Blast Radius and RY/2 Twin Sun Station).
But I got the same result in the previous mission when CRV Farrelly parked at the Rebel Hospital, so I don't think it's a mission related problem.

In 1b0m7fw.tie the second order of the CRV Blast Radius in Region #2 is "Park at RY/2 Twin Sun Station" with jump condition "RY/2 Twin Sun Station must be disabled". That mission order looks OK.

Which version of the ship are you using, if its docking sideways then it could be trying to use a dock to hardpoint on one of the docking clamps for fighters.

Which is an interesting side effect. Ha! If so the fix is probably removing side mounted dock to points, maybe change to dock point alternatively.

Yeah I agree I might have to remove the docking points on the liberator, to be honest the docking points on the side pylon things was just wishful thinking, your never going to get an Awing to dock sideways to it :)

I think I'll remove them

I selected the standard version of the CR90 corvette when I installed it.

I haven't a clue then,

I've looked at the standard opt, and there are no more hardpoints on it than there is on the original corvette2.opt

I also tried playing the mission myself, did what I had to do, but the bloody corvette didn't park a the station, not sure if I'm playing it wrong, or what, it's been years since I played a mission properly

I wish I had a fix for you. I've seen the same strange cockeyed docking behavior in the Assault Transport. I think it was in "Raid Mercenary Base." That's Battle 6, Mission 3. At least it doesn't seem to affect the mission outcome. There isn't a collision or anything like that.

Could have something to do with waypoints then? I dunno, I never had any issues with this bug, though I never stuck around long enough what with all the missiles headed my way...

The Corvette Blast Radius will park at RY/2 Twin Sun Station only if the station is disabled.
The jump condition to order 2 is "100% of RY/2 Twin Sun Station must be disabled".
Theoretically, if CRV Blast Radius completes the first order reaching all the 6 waypoints (they are fine) without disabling the station, the corvette will enter hyperspace because the jump to order 2 in R2 condition doesn't trigger.
That's highly improbable though...

This is not caused by the new corvette; I checked 1b0m6fw.tie, and it happens with both the previous version of the corvette (corvette2.opt) and in the stock game.
