    [Acknowledged][HIGH PRIORITY] Light emitting blocks cause suspension to act strange

    Game Version: 0.3.1
    OS:
    Windows 10 64-bit
    Simple Description:
    Placing a light emitting block on a vehicle causes wheels to act glitchy
    Detailed Description:

    Placing a light emitting block on a vehicle will cause the wheels to act "wobbly". The connection between the wheels and suspension will sort of "give way" more. Then when accelerating/hitting bumps the wheels will "bounce" more, and wobble forwards and backwards. This is most noticeable on >=6 wheeled vehicles and when crashing normal vehicles at speed.
    Reproducibility: Every time
    How to Reproduce:
    Build car with 2 generators for extra power (to notice it more)
    Drive around and notice wheels act normal
    Place 2 spotlights on the front of the car
    Drive around and notice the difference.
    Crash into a tree at speed and notice the wheels "bounce" forwards and backwards more than usual
    Any additional information:
    Spotlights also seem to have an abnormally high mass(weight)

    wow caught one already, Waz? must have been some swamp gas from a weather balloon that was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

    Linked it with a timestamp.

    Happened kinda the same thing without lights, or maybe there were lights, can't remember anymore, luckily I got it on camera. (The huge thing in front of the vehicle was used as a countermass to fix the wheels)

    Hopefully devs will find out I think it's because wheels are kinda moving into the object, thus propelling it, making other wheels go crazy doing the same thing, and round it goes away into the sky high.

    It sure would!

    We'll be creating a test scene for Unity to help us out, trying different approaches on our own too.

    Physics, we're in this for a long run.
