Hi. I want to share an interesting story. Today I was testing winch and towing for the first time. It works really bad and I think it needs to be improved. It is not really towing... it is like stretching a bungee and waitinh what happens. Usually it is the load that jumps on top of the rover, but when I leave the rover it is usually rover flying away... Anyway, I was towing a field research unit and at some point the unit hit the rover and the rover flipped upside down on top of the research unit. I tried to flip it back, but instead, my astronaut left the rover and found himself inside the research unit... I could not get back outside, I was locked inside! Luckily, The rover had a trailer with batteries, so being inside the research unit, I managed to disconnect the trailer cable plug and connect it directly to the research unit. After some time the unit opened and I could leave. I think the easiest way to fix the bug is to make towing more predictable and stable, so it is actually towing, not playing with bungees
Playing multiplayer with a friend on PC, I'm hosting. Not sure if this bug is repeatable with a controller, because it takes quick reactions to pull off. Was pulling a platform after finding out the winch will pull anything it's attached to without a vehicle. Accidentally attached the winch to the T2 slot on the platform and it began to spin and fly into the distance. Long story short, had to make another winch and platform.
