Description

GOG KSP 1.11.0 (No Mods/No DLCs)

If anyone watched T0zzle's Twitch Stream yesterday (Maxsimal) she decoupled a rover from a larger craft and changed to the rover.
It then seemed to travel away from the other craft at speed (even though the orbital speed said it was 0m/s)

I determined it to be the oct tag after some testing.
Doesnt happen in 1.10.1

History

#1 Updated by Anth12 25 days ago

I know it does this consistently for oct tags. it might do it for other parts as well?

Note that the Oct Tag always seems to report the following in the log file, could it be related?

The effective box size has been forced positive and is likely to give unexpected collision geometry.
If you absolutely need to use negative scaling you can use the convex MeshCollider. Scene hierarchy path "Decoupler.1/strutCube/model/cubestrut"

#2 Updated by Anth12 25 days ago

This applies to both the Octagonal Strut and the Cubic Octagonal Strut.

Both show the error relating to negative scaling

ignore the

"The effective box size has been forced positive and is likely to give unexpected collision geometry.

I think this is related to #26971

#4 Updated by [email protected] about 12 hours ago

The error message "...unexpected collision geometry" in the logs referring to the (cubic)octagonal struts has been there since at least version 1.7.3
(Maybe that is the reason for the "Ignore the..." in comment #3. We can still go back and edit our own comments on this tracker.)
