I BELIEVE what this means is, before the update, when you removed a Middle tether in between other tethers, those other tethers would try to make new connections if they were close enough, sometimes filling in the gap. Now no new connections/changes will be made by the other tethers, the one tether and its connections will just be removed.
LucasUP replied to bbiggy's topic in Bug Reports, CrashesWe've also had this happen multiple times with a tractor (and separate seats attached to a trailer). I was the host, and my co-op partner was the one to have this bug happen. Ejected into outer space, and suffocated and lost all items. It happened to him so often it put us off playing the game until this issue gets fixed.
