Engine Error while analyzing soil.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In mission - ref. 6812 at the Victoria crater.
Using the T5 Lander (Which is the Heavy Lander) with slightly modified instrumentation. But reproduced using the default T5 Lander.
While analyzing the soil with soil scoop. Just at the end of the analysis, it crashes with this error:

After the first time, I was able to reproduce this two more times, but the third time it worked without a problem.
