Difficult to Stop Boats
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It's very difficult to stop the boats forward movement, and prevent them running and getting stuck on land!

Additional Information

Since boats are very difficult to stop, players will be beaching them more often then mooring them properly. (Beaching the boats causes the boats to become disfunctional.)

Even coasting into the harbors, it's very difficult to prevent beaching the boats. I haven't tried it, but it might be best to try backing into the harbors in order to properly moor them.

Another option, if the boats just skims the bottom of the beach for a short distance while coasting, allow the boat to be able to be moved in reverse instead of permanently causing the boat to get stuck on the beach.

(Currently, it appears once the boat's bottom touches the bottom, the boat is stuck permanently.)

Actually it's only for speedboats.
Assault boats have the reverse gear working properly

"Actually it's only for speedboats."

Aye, the reverse thrust on those is almost nonextistant.

Speedboats take a minute to stop from full speed. Mil vehicles should stop way faster. More power please. :)

Need far more reverse thrust, while moving forward (stopping) or backing up, its like all you got in reverse is a little bass boat trolling motor!

Bug #4488 "Please Provide an anchor option for boats." might be relevant to this bug.

Dupe of #664.
