    Version: 11.5.3 (2759)
    Mode: Survival, Self-Hosted Single Player
    Repo: wish I knew .. totally funny
    Severity: moderate
    Type: POV camera in 3rd person

    I left the cockpit of my SV on a moon in order to mine some cobalt and in front of me I saw myself spinning in front of the 3rd person camera. I was able to move without any difficulty but it was clear that my ability to interact was following the rotation; I couldn't get back into the cockpit without staying pointed at it and hitting F repeatedly. Once in the cockpit I was able to get back into 1st person and the issue disappeared when I jumped back out.

    You are using the Player Drone with a drill selected > the "wheel" is the targeting representation of the drills mining area.

    So what you tried is to get into a cockpit with the Drone?

    Yes- sorry .. jumped out and deployed drone to mine and the spinning started. It wasn't the 3rd person camera it was the drone camera. Drone was stable and I could mine no problem.

    I have found a way to make this reliably trigger almost every time on demand with & without the personal drone or any cockpit being involved.

    A12 build 2950 or 2955? (just prior to 2956 release)
    Survival Mode (but probably all modes)
    Coop server

    Severity minor (and hilarious).
    Reproducibility: 100%, it seems.

    When using the drill, another player appears as though they are spinning and twirling. There may be some other tools that cause issues now that we've narrowed this issue down to the drill but only aware of and reproduced this one for now.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Get a drill.
    2. Have someone watch your character.
    3. Drill.
    4. Laugh.

    Not sure when I first witnessed this issue, but it has been through many major releases. It's similar to getting on the motorcycle and the 3rd person view showing you standing and walking on the motorcycle while you drive along. have raided a number of POIs with players spinning their way through them.

    Have never been able to come up with steps to reproduce it.

    Kudos if you can reproduce it at will.

    Yup! I'm pretty sure it's just the hand drill because we were digging a tunnel the other day and that's the only time I saw it. I tried to attach a funny video of it but it wouldn't let me so here's a link for those who haven't seen it:

    This is an old bug of the player's Ragdoll physics or/and animation. If I recall correctly it happens since pre alpha stages. It doesn't seem to be fixed all those years and if it is then why does it happen again?

    Really, this is a trivial bug. It doesn't impact the actual playing of the game other than immersion, and it looks silly. Not that it shouldn't be fixed... just that it's not a high priority.

    This is the sort of thing you tweak just before the game hits final, non-alpha, non-beta, absolute REAL release.

    Game play bugs and adding contents are more important until then.
