Wolves Jumping through cars and causing damage.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I was driving slow through Tissy and a pack of wolves sideswiped me and just about killed me while I was in a fully built 4x4 car, you also can't run them over, they go right through the vehicle like it isn't there at all.

Yes, this happened to me yesterday, so wolves are still (as of 1.04) able to attack players in a closed car. My car had a harry potter moment just as I was driving past a flock of wolves and ended up in a bush, before I was able to reverse out the wolves killed me through the closed doors.

This was fixed for infected some patches ago, please make it so wolves cannot attack players in a fully built car with doors closed. Doorless or doors open - fine. But when the doors are closed they should have to wait until I get out...

Also applies to bears by the way. I have lost count of all the times I have been driving along and a bear comes charging out of the woods and knocks me out in the car. Should only be possible if you have no door or a broken window. :)

Just an hour ago I was once again killed by a bear when driving. This time in a truck, fully built. The bear came rushing out of the forest and easily caught up with me (beacause the M3S is kinda slow...) and started attacking me through the closed door. It then got sucked under the wheels and died, but I bled out before I could bandage all the cuts.

Please, I beg of you, make the doors protect the player from wolves and bears until ruined. (And make infected also attack - but be unable to actually cause damage until the door is ruined.)

@Geez Been an issue for a while now. This was also mentioned in a recent Wobo vid. Any chance of looking into this? Thank you 🙏

Hello 3lockad3.
The issue has been fixed internally and the fix will appear in one of the upcoming updates.

Tested this fix on Experimental 1.16.154478 -
I can confirm that the player does not get injured by wolves, but not always.

I was inside a vehicle, all doors attached and closed, the vehicle was not moving, engine turned off.
Two wolves surrounded the vehicle and as they tried to attack me a few times, they could not hit me, but after a few tries - they did.
The position of the attacking wolf was in front and to left of the vehicle, it jumped straight towards the back of the vehicle (not towards my character), when passed next to my character's head it did not even touch the vehicle, but somehow my character got injured and got a bleeding wound.

On the other hand -
Wolves cannot hit a player that is sitting inside a car with doors opened (engine is turned off). They behave as if the doors are closed.
I tested this a few times and it happened on every test.
