Description

Here's a simple test with screenshots: a ship is put on a highly eccentric orbit around Eve and reenters the atmosphere. The big drill explodes in a few seconds.

The drill is far from the heatshield when raised. It will stick through it if extended. And it is the only part that glows. Other parts are fine, and none is glowing red.

Apparently, the old bug is still there.

History

#1 Updated by Kulebron about 1 month ago

See the screenshots on imgur, they have thermal debug in the UI turned on.

#2 Updated by Kulebron about 1 month ago

I've just checked if it works with the drill upside down, and it does perfectly fine. Also, in the part's debug info I don't see the "Exposed skin" line anymore.

#3 Updated by Kulebron about 1 month ago

Screenshots with the drill upside down. No "exposed skin" row in the info popup.
