Transit Buses get stuck on certain RR crossings
Acknowledged, NormalPublic


[CORDS: 20, 40] North of Vavilovo
[CORDS: 140, 20] Various at Svetlojarsk

Due to the large distance between front and rear wheels and Transit Bus cannot cross a Rail Road crossing without either going full speed or after getting stuck removing the wheels over and over (to push the bus over using the physics engine). Note: You cannot go full speed at places like Svetlojarsk where the hairpin corner makes it impossible.

Suggested fix: Where railroads cross roads remove the ramp and make the rails phantom in that section and remove the ramp. However, if railed vehicles will be added this might need to be rethought.

Other solutions do not work:

  1. You could extend the ramp making the angle more gradual but that would look strange.
  2. You could create a transparent angled ramp addition but it may cause players to walk in mid air.
  3. If not changed visually and made phantom players would glitch and hide in the ramp.


Operating System
Windows 7
Steps To Reproduce

Get in a Transport Bus an attempt to drive on a road with a rail road crossing. The ramp will cause the front end of the bus to be at a too high of an angle in order to gain traction.

Additional Information

After spending an hour getting the parts of a Transport Bus then getting stuck and not being able to access the entire major highway system is very frustrating to players.
