    Is there a common side when getting out of a vehicle?

    When I'm driving and I stop and get out, sometimes it dumps on the left and sometimes on the right.
    Is there any way to tell which side? Getting out the wrong side could be life threatening...

    I had a theory it was all about the nearest clear area, and then I built a big mobile base with flat area on both sides of the cockpit, and it always seemed to dump me out on the downhill side, whichever one that was. Not sure if it was coincidence, or if it really does have some kind of selection process like that.

    I also learned not to put the stasis pod too close to a wall in your base, or you might wake up outside the facility. Heh.

    There is a system simulating the everyday life of a Nomadic driver - looking outside the cockpit and checking where's the most appropriate and safest spot to jump out. While sometimes it makes dumb decisions, it usually works OK

    LOL; that is nothing at my old base I had an interior-wall mounted stasis pod and it throw me under the building!

    It was a great view from inside stasis chamber, I’m going to have to try that again but it at 60 degree angle, and on the second floor of a building.

    So is the logic where I am looking at the time of getting out?

    Nay, the system just simulates as if you were. It checks all the available positions until it finds the most suitable one. Regardless where you as the player look.

    When getting out the wrong side of the bed means ending up outside the house in your pj's.
