I love this game but when such things happen i get really down...

It started with an "usual" landmine (i actually had just 3 before i upgraded to 4.0 so this made me even sadder)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsxMMvYa0EU

And then the cars flyins away in the sky at over 500km/h... :culpability:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PrIXMYYsks

At least i got an achievement for this:

218737

:D;):).....:(:culpability::acne::no:

I think this world's first...

Car was (and was is really fitting) a Z4 gt3 in career mode at brands hatch. I think by now it's past the Moon :D

I try to laugh but it's getting frustrating. Oh i forgot to mention the car was basically 100% stock beside aero, not sure it can help in any way for the bugtracking.

Why was the car smoking like that before the lift off ? Looks like it is coming from under the bonnet, you sure the engine didn't let go, cease and cause that ? That's what the video appears to show me. In any case that is a pretty spectacular detonation .. heh

Makes me wonder about this land mine bug, if it is not caused by something to do with engine damage and a cease at high speed. If the car wasn't smoking like that I would agree, a land mine bug, but ... just saying .. food for thought.

No engine seizure would cause a car to flip, that's just silly

If you start watching the replay with engine blown car is smoking even before the engine failure.

I see that from time to time in my replays . the smoke and there is no engine failure

Engine was pristine, it was the water effect from light rain going away

Oh my, well i didn't make a mistake and if you seem the second video you can see the car reaching like 400mts before i quitted >_>

My god well done to that driving sprinting to see if he's ok!

Is there a contract for the Z4 in career mode?

Actually, the driver lost a thumb... But otherwise the rest of him is ok.

Just be patient the physics guys are working getting a fix out for a strange bug that changes wheel alignment/toe angles over longer periods. It could be responsible for strange dip/flip/land mine bugs from what I gather. In any case SMS are aware of these bugs which has plagued the game since the beginning. Unfortunately they are quite rare and apparently very hard to nail down for good and know 100% what's causing them.

Out of curiosity how for into the race were you? Lap number?

The car would be smoking because the air vents are closed too much causing the engine to get too hot. He needs more airflow over the engine.

I did laugh at that being the result of engine failure though, I've never ever seen a car launch into the sky from an engine failure lol.

I've seen that doing the rounds lately, crazy launch. Testament to the safety of modern cars though.. Wouldn't wanna do that in a Citroen AX lol!

As Flymar mentioned there is a bug that if you blow your engine then view a replay you see smoke for the whole duration. Although it also could be aero damage leading to overheating but I don't think so in this case.

Ah my bad wasn't aware of that bug lol.

I think it was my second flying lap in Qualy... So 4 laps.

Didn't race before (and not after i'll need to cool down for it). Track was Brands hatch.

But this is really a new level of landmines, since as far as i know no one before had the "inverted gravity" bug... Actually it might be a force of gravity issue now that i think about it :D

To be clear the engine was 100% ok, i was just from pit, no crashes, the engine was open 60%. That isn't smoke, it's water spray.

There is two kinds of smoke
Overheating smoke - puffs here and there - I don't really understand it and I think it should be scrapped. It tells you nothing and looks bad.
Engine failure smoke.

Don't be blind the engine exploded in the first video after the landmine.

To be honest, the first thing I thought was "nice leaves in that preview window"

Honestly, I thought at first that was a still from a real video. Obviously, once the video started playing I realised the error of my ways. But still, you have to admit, that does look pretty damn good :D.
