Winch on locked truck

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

I found that it is possible to attach winch to the locked truck.

I think there are 2 solutions for that 

1. do not allow to attach winch to the locked truck.
2. Unlock truck when winch is attached to.

 

Thanks

Hi.

Here a third solution:

..  leave it as it is. It doesn't look like a bug to me.

It is a bug, but the OP meant to say locked truck.

Being not what you would like it to be doesn't make it a bug.

The truck is locked, it's not a ghost.

I know there is tendency to mark all bug as "As designed" but going this way software never become better. I am software developer too, so I know what I am talking about. If there is change to enhance behavior and it doesn't require tons of time, then devs should take a look at it and try to fix it.

So explain why it would be better the way you suggest.

The truck is locked: it mean it is there and why not use it as a winch point?

And why would it be better to unlock the truck with the winch ( is it the way you start your car as a software enginer not working with Microsoft?)

Because when you attach winch to the locked truck and then press F then truck will move forward, closer to your truck and become unlocked. So in fact you are moving by pressing F locked truck ? Where is the logic?  If it is locked then it means that it cannot be used. I hope you are not the only one dev working on this game because it will die soon in this case.

I'm not dev on that game, just trying to understand your logic as I disagree with you first post.

If the locked truck start his engine I could see that as a bug, but not the fact you can attach your winch to it.

I didn't had to attach my winch to a locked truck since a lot of version and in my memory, the truck was not starting his engine, neither moving.
And on the picture you provided it didn't moved a lot...

Yes, "locked" truck will start and will move in your direction when you pres F.

I also don’t see the problem here. It’s not a bug that makes the game not playable.

Easy fix - don’t use locked truck near you as a winching point!

Devs should look in game breaking bugs at first!

Then a locked truck should not be able to start his engine by winching on it, that's the fix I would see.
