Head breaks of robot arm when unfolding - Mars Yard Explorer Scenario
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When 'unfolding' the rover robotic arm, as the arm becomes almost vertical the rotating end head breaks and falls off. I have tried rotation the head to keep the instruments clear of the arm and also rotating the arm left (out) to make sure it's well clear of the rover. None seem to fix the issue.

  • As it extends suddenly the head snaps off the arm and breaks.
  • Sad Rover :(

I have tested the issue. It is caused by in-game physics and it occurs when the physics setting in the options is set below the maximum. We are looking in a way to fix it.

We have fixed the issue and it will be available in next dev. update.
