Sudden increase in air resistance

Recommended Posts

I was in an asteroid field doing a "disrupt fracking operations" mission.  The world has no air resistance and I was zipping around just fine.  At some point during play, air resistance suddenly became high and stayed that way for the rest of the mission.  I am sketchy on details as to whether anything triggered this.

Version 0.7.4, researcher campaign, galaxy #3.

All I remember is that it happened after I ventured into the centre and saw the (shielded) fracking base.  I was positioned underneath, and unloaded my weapons at the underside of the asteroid it's perched on (to see whether I could damage the terrain).  I was equipped with plasma rocket launchers and kinetic blasters, each with both bullet count and projectile life upgrades.

The only other thing I recall prior to then is one of those little blue crystal native creatures harrassing me, which resulted in a lot of me flying around bumping into stuff.

I've also attached a GIF of something else I saw in that same run, with some weird collision glitch which you can see on the left side of the screen.  Dunno if that's relevant or not.

I've noticed this happening a lot in general, on many worlds, for a long time.  It usually happens after collisions but isn't reliable enough to reproduce on demand.

Yeah I wondered if it's not an air resistance thing at all.  It could be mass related, and just feels like resistance when thrusters lose effectiveness.  Still, in a zone with no air resistance, the drone surely shouldn't be decelerating when not under thrust.

I assume the same glitch or a similar one is still happening after I spawnd a couple of drones, might be related to colisions or the high friction blocks or something. dunno.

I think that sometimes parts of blocks get stuck within drones; usually when you collide with objects using an unstable drone.
