I have a wingmate who has had a notoriety level of 1 since last night. I've read on the wiki that it decays by one point every 2 hours. Since he's still notorious a day later, I did some research and found people saying:
- 2 hour time limit
- 2 hour time limit from next login
- indeterminate time / encountered a bug
Is there a way to see the remaining time on your notoriety level?
If not, is there a hard and fast rule (possibly from Fdev?) governing notoriety?
Are there any known quirks with it, e.g. do you have to jump to another system to start the 2 hour timer?
The problem was actually a 5k bounty that he couldn't pay off until he was at notoriety 0. A quick fix was to buy a sidewinder and have another wingmate blow him up. He had notoriety 0 when he respawned, but still could not pay off the bounty. But, after logging out and back in, he was able to pay it off and became clean.
