This plane goes to the right inexplicably. It is completely symmetrical.
Oh, sneaky block update! Cool.
Edit: have you tried rotating the propellers 90 degrees?
going in right side is something that happened to me from time to time on any plane.
try different props and then place these back.
Rotating the attachment does change the direction of pull. You can make it a lot stronger pulling up the front of the plane, for example (but still not quite *perfectly* balanced for left/right).
Lame plane of shame snapshot (oops, older snapshot, needs weight on back to get off ground):
Side note, do people (and devs) think we should move these threads about EXP blocks to (one of) the R&D section(s) of the forum? @kae will you see them there? Definitely the right place for non-bug feedback on these blocks, right...?
Yes. Grey blocks do not belong to stable/unstable sections. these are R&D blocks.
Does this issue happen specifically with the EXP Big top nose propeller?
We had a look at the flight system a while back and fixed the most obvious offenders of this bug where the plane flies off axis for no real obvious reason, we'll take another look into it again to see if we can iron out some more of the issues here.
I really would prefer if the bugs weren't posted in several different places, it makes it harder for us here to track bugs and for players posting to easily find already reported issues.
The R&D forums were created primarily for discussion and feedback on new blocks, not really for bugs.
To externally answer that question - Yes. It appears the specified location of thrust within the Big Nose Prop is off-cetre which is causing this behaviour
Totally agree (I was never a fan of the unstable/stable split, in the first place - it's still hard to search both simultaneously).
So, EXP block *bugs* here, EXP block *feedback* in R&D Feedback or R&D main? (Feedback section makes more sense but main is used more...)
I ask here because there's a lot of grey area between definite bug behaviour and 'intended but don't like it'. e.g. the sonic lances - what are they *supposed* to do? They let you glitch your tech through other techs, at the moment...
Did this ever get fixed?
No idea, a lot is not listed in patch notes. 184.108.40.206 came out since this report, so it might be worth checking (and letting us know).
Sorry, patch notes are manual work and sometimes we miss things between all the not-publicly-interesting stuff that's going in.
It looks like the Big Nose Prop was fixed on Sept. 19 and would have made it in an Unstable build since then, so it should be fixed for you
