Physical objects cause breakable objects (fences, lamp posts) to fall down without direct contact
Assigned, WishlistPublic


Physical objects (dead bodies, vehicle) cause breakable objects (fences, lamp posts, that are not of same locality as physical object) to fall down without direct contact. Repro mission attached.

Repro mission recreates this situation and shows the problem: Offroad vehicle is constantly in motion (falls from 1 meter height) and is owned by host, second player can spawn lamp post (which will be owned by him) which falls down almost instantly because of moving physical object nearby. If you spawn lamp post far enough, it will be fine. {F19190}

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start Physics_break_objects_repro.Stratis mission with 2 players
  2. Second player (non-hosting player) should select "Spawn lamp" from his mousewheel action menu
  3. If lamp will be close enough to Offroad, it will fall down almost right away.
  4. Lamp can be respawned by selecting "Spawn lamp" again to observe that offroad breaks lamp from far away (at about of 20 meters)
Additional Information

Player jumping down from some height also causes this problem to occur, they break all non-local breakable objects around them without any kind of direct contact.

This problem was first noticed in public version few week after release and still present in all public and dev versions.

Setting "allowDamage false" or "enableSimulation false" on the lamp from either host or client or both doesn't help and lamp still breaks down without direct contact.

Bug videotaped. Lamp posts are not local to the driver of Offroad.

Objects are still falling over. They dont fall over for any vehicles anymore but whilst on foot they still do.

We did the testing and vehicles and ragdolls no longer cause breakable objects to fall.

Confirmed all fixed :)

Seems to be fixed. Marking as such. :)

Mass close.

Re-opening, it seems somewhat different from #7773.

This problem still happens rarely, usually noticable with ragdolls, sometimes when player dies nearby bushes or walls fall down.
