Vanilla Wheels do not function when attached to Subgrids

Mister.D shared this bug 3 years ago

IT seems like vanilla suspension wheels do not allow interaction when they are attached to a subgrid.

Rotors, or modded rotors also do not allow wheels to work on them.

It should be, as it limits alot of very cool articulation for tools, or offroad extreme terrain traversal on Planets.

Something I'd imagine could be fixed by determining the orientation of the suspension vs the controlling grid's cockpit/remote block.


I have the same problem, with a small experimental mining rover. The front part is connected through a hinge to the main part with the cockpit. It contains a drill which works fine, and two wheel which do not work at all. I have published the rover on the Steam Workshop, see

Admittedly the game contains a few mods, but none of these should interfere with the operation of wheels. So I expect the bug will be reproducible in a vanilla game.

Kind regards
