    [Acknowledged][HIGH PRIORITY] [DUPLICATE INSIDE]Space travel already possible

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Game Version:
    0.3.1
    OS: Linux
    Simple Description: I was thrown into space after hitting a tree with the vehicle.
    Detailed Description:
    My vehicle hit a tree, the tires started to shuffle around, then somehow I was catapulted through the atmosphere and far into space.
    Reproducibility: Only happened once so far
    How to Reproduce: hit a tree or one of those super-hard cactii in a vehicle, with wheels or suspension

    I've seen my vehicle fly up into space.
    It happens for me when the suspension gets into a feedback loop. Once I flipped my vehicle, and I was going to physics it back over by building onto the vehicle and lever it over. Once it started to lift and begin to flip, there is a chance that the suspension starts bouncing the wheels around, and it goes into a runaway reaction. Two vehicles in space already!

    (Also, really need a vehicle flip function!)

    This appears to be a common problem with games. It's strange because if I were to implement physics from engineers perspective, I would always do that including some basic energy conservation laws, which wouldn't allow this to happen. Apparently game engines are done differently. Are the physics PN or Unity3D?

    Unity physics base with lots of PN stuff on top of it (thanks to Pavel). Feels like a life-long struggle now. We're still at it.
