    Wheels clipping into slanted road piece

    This happened on the track lolsport 1-077 (https://trackmania.exchange/maps/1500)

    While slightly going off the road part and then turning back in, wheels can clip into the road piece and stay there until road flattens out again.

    Hey General, thanks for reaching out about this.

    I can certainly see from the video that the wheels clip into the surface - that's most unusual! I'd like to go ahead and report this to our team, but before I do this, can you check our troubleshooting guide? In particular from that guide, please make sure you've updated your graphics drivers and operating system, you've verified the game files, and you don't have any unnecessary background programs interfering with the game. In this way, we can be sure the game has all the correct files and access it needs to run as it should.

    Can you also tell me if you've noticed this on other maps besides this one? It'd be great to have an example from an official map, so we can see that it is not a quirk of specific custom maps with custom assets.

    Thanks again for your post - I'm looking forward to your response

    Hi Thrupney, thanks for the reply.

    Here is a video of this happening on Summer 2021 - 03: https://youtu.be/x0INjgfoplA



    This also happens on custom blocks with the same or similar slant.

    On blocks with a smaller incline at the edge, the wheels clip and immediately "pops" back out as seen here on Summer 2021 - 09:https://youtu.be/l9LAYlUPLXQ


    Edit: After some further testing, this appears to only happen on road pieces with a concave shape as shown in the video for 03. Does not happen on other road pieces. Surface appears to be irrelevant.

    Game files verified and drivers are up to date. (GeForce Game Ready Driver Version 472.12)
    Tried to remove OpenPlanet in its entirety and this is still reproduceable. No other mods installed.
    OpenPlanet is installed in the clips above, this is to show inputs for the bug report. (Inputs did not get captured for the 09 clip).

    Happy to help!

    I think you can clip into sausage blocks too. Spring 21 showed the first signs of this.
    Although it never happened to me mid run, and I only one of my wheels got stuck, but it should be possible to fully stuck yourself into sausage block aswell, especially if you try hard enough.

    Thanks for providing these for us. I have passed this on to the team for further investigation.
