Also, to note, the panels on the zero-g probe also spawn with the angles backwards, even if they don't spaz off the little thing right away. I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but will we get any larger zero-g probes in the future?

Hi Akane. Yes, issue with solar arrays is with every vehicle which is using them. Currently we're not working on large zero-g probe but we want to add more crafts for zero-g space. At the moment I can't say for sure when and if we actually make it.

How about a simple tube or half-tube for the deep space asteroid mission?

Attach some solarpanels on it's surface, let the roboarm operate from the top or bottom.

That design looks bulky in a way, but the design has some advantages to be stronger than the original Zero-G probe and you can save some details in the model because most parts would be inside the tube.

Thales, this bug will be fixed in the next version?

Hi! Yes, this bug will be fixed in new update but it will only work on new vehicles. Old vehicles already spawned with wrong solar arrays cannot be fixed, sorry about that.

Fixed in new update.
