    Summary: CVs will jiggle and move when docking & Undocking SV/HV From CV

    Description: CVs will jiggle and move when docking & Undocking SV/HV This is triggered by landing a CV on rocks or uneven terrain

    Steps to Reproduce:

    First way to reproduce
    1) Spawn a CV & SV on planet and dock the SV on top
    2) Move the CV to a place with small rocks or mid sized rocks and land it on top of the rocks where they are touching the hull
    3) Undock the SV
    This method may take anywhere between 1- 10 times to get the CV to jiggle

    Second Way to reproduce
    1) Spawn a CV & SV on planet and dock the SV on top
    2) Move the CV to a place with small rocks or mid sized rocks and land it on top of the rocks where they are touching the Landing Gears
    3) Undock the SV
    This method may take anywhere between 1- 10 times to get the CV to jiggle

    Yeah I was only able to track it down after a month of observation.

    Are you sure that an old bug report is not active, marked as known issue?

    I actually just had this happen again 2 days ago when landing to dock an SV to my CV. Only the CV was not parked in the dirt or on rocks or anything. It was on a purpose built set of concrete landing blocks at my base. The CV was perfectly level and only had minimal power online to sustain the farm and fridges. Landing the SV not only made it jiggle, it sent it spinning upside down and then bounced around wildly on the ground until I was able to exit the cockpit of the SV. At which point the CV was half embedded into the base structure and continued to gyrate wildly until it freed itself from the base's collision boxes. Afterward it got catapulted 1.5km away over the land and I had to go bring it back.

    I don't know if it matters or not but it wasn't in a vanilla game session, I was playing the updated Star Salvage scenario. No idea if that should matter for this though.

    I know this issue happens seemingly at random. And in so many different ways and situations. And yes I have seen it happen as you described. However the ways for reproduction I listed are where I can semi-reliably make it happen.

    Last night my brother's CV kept randomly flipping then correcting itself sometimes when he left the pilot seat, sending him clipping through the floor falling out onto a lava planet.

    Luckily I was there with a second ship but if not then this would have been a quit moment for a new player.
