Vehicle flickering and client crashes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Somewhat frequently, and only as of the last client update (1.36.128?) vehicles of all kinds will "flicker" in and out of visibility very quickly in a multiplayer environment. When this happens all those who are looking at it have a high probability of a client crash.

See the video posted in additional information for an example.

Added crash file upload.

I have zipped a few days worth of crash dumps together. This issue is starting to happen very frequently for me on the Asylum server to the point where i cannot play.

Can confirm, have expirienced this on my groups public (no mods) and private (mods) dedicated servers. Each time it was when I joined in progress and the vehicle was in veiw range of where I spawned, happened with a wipeout so was very apparent with the engine sound flickering along with the vehicle. Proceeded to crash to desktop.
