Aaaaaawesome! Let's hope my mates onm PC are keen (!) on trying Cross-Platform shenanigans again. Last time I had no clue we couldn't play together. And now I had no clue this would be sorted, is now sorted and can now play with anyone :).

Rotors and Hinges have been broken for a long time now. The locks and brakes do not work and the slider for the RPM and torque specs is terrible and impossible to fine tune. It is gamebreaking and annoying, as well as making complex constructions impossible. it needs fixed immediately
