Underworld bug
« on: June 12, 2012, 12:19:44 pm »

I don't really know where to post this but just wanna show what happened to me just a while ago after climing up a mountain with the truck and then going downhill, spinning it a few times and rolling and then eventually going underworld and then this happened..

Yes, that's a known issue with collision system - when going too fast, sometimes the collision algo doesn't catch it and lets it pass, and then it's a free fall to the center of Earth :)

What happens when you free fall to the center of the Earth in Outerra?  Do you keep going and out the other side of the planet?

Well, since there's no friction, you should swing to the other side.

Though I guess a division by zero could stop you in the center, or floating point imprecision can cause that you won't make it.

What bothers me the most is how the engine sound is based on the physical motion of the truck and not the RPM's of the engine/wheels. This will not stand.
