  1. Ever since the new terrain system came out with the 1.0 release earlier this year, driving a vehicle (rover or tractor, doesn't matter) with a front-mounted drill is impossible while trying to use the drill. It's finally dawned on me this is actually a terrain issue where the vehicle gets buried and stuck in the terrain as the drill is cutting into it, as in my current 1.2.10 game my large rover train is half buried and gets embedded even deeper when I turn the drill on. Symptom: when drill is mounted on front of a vehicle and turned on, the vehicle cannot be moved by driving. The only way to effectively tunnel with the drill while moving forward is to first initiate forward motion, then turn the drill on and off rapidly while continuing to propel the vehicle forward; while this gets the job done (sort of) it is difficult, and infuriating because of how much easier this works when playing the PC version using a keyboard/mouse where this issue does not appear. In my current game I started noticing that when I turned drill on when vehicle was not moving the front rover in the train would sink into the ground. Repeated activations of the drill seem to slowly sink the vehicle further. When I exit the vehicle and use terrain deform tool anywhere near vehicle, whether digging or flattening terrain, vehicle would sink further even if terrain I was modifying was a ways away from the vehicle. Just now trying to dig my rover out of the mess it is now more than 1/2 buried, and will likely soon fall completely into the terrain. Earlier in this game I also noticed vehicles sinking partly into the ground when terrain modified anywhere near them, and this is what makes me think the issues with the drill operation on a vehicle in Xbox is actually due to these other terrain issues. Whatever is causing it, the Xbox version of this game isn't really playable until this gets resolved.
