MyLaserAntenna's faulty LosTest()

Shane Stixrud shared this bug 8 months ago
Solved

MyLaserAntenna fails it's line of sight test for entities without physics. This includes projected/preview MyCubeGrids and all MyEntities. I discovered this bug while developing my Defense Shields mod, but it affects non-modded games as well (projected grids).


In my opinion the best and simplest fix is to first check if the MyEntity has active physics and if not ignore that entity

Hello,


this was supposed to be fixed in version 1.189.


Anyone still having the issue?

Hello, Laser Antennas just don't work, I can't connect if distance is more then 50mt between them, same grid or different grids doesn't matter.

I just checked and this issue is NOT fixed. MyEntities with null physics still block the laser.

Shane, I see you are also fighting with not being able to see what you type on this site, right?

Hello,


can you upload the world where it is happening? I tried it but I am not able to reproduce it.
