Bug Reports

Reproducibility is key. Please provide as much information as possible so that we are able to reproduce the bug you describe. If possible, when you encounter a bug, go back and try to get it to happen again so you can be sure how it happens. Exact steps are incredibly helpful!

Screenshots: Providing a link to a screenshot (or even a short video) clearly showing your issue is immensely helpful. Simply attach it to your report.

Output Log / Crashes: Distance generates an output log which will help us greatly in diagnosing your issue. If possible, please attach your output log to your post (especially in the case of a crash).

  • On Windows: “[SteamFolder]/steamapps/common/Distance/Distance_Data/output_log.txt”

  • On OSX: “/Users/[username]/Library/Logs/Unity/Player.log”

  • On Linux: “/home/[username]/.config/unity3d/Refract/Distance/Player.log”

Beta Disclaimer: While Distance is in beta, experimentation comes first, stability second. We’ll do our best to fix game breaking issues as they arise, but our priority while in beta is to experiment with gameplay and features. Know that we read every output log and crash report, though it might take time to respond to each one.

  1. Jumping and doing a barrel roll doesn't register sometimes

    Occasionally, when I jump and land a barrel roll from the track, it just doesn't count it as a barrel roll. When this happens, it might occur two or three times in a row, although usually at one point it counts it as a back twist or some such for no reason. There's probably some test case for it, but I have no idea what it is. All I know is that it annoys the heck out of me when I've been doing an otherwise perfect run! Anyone else have anything to contribute?

    • Flying freezes the state of the rotation thrusters

      If you're rotating the car as you activate the wings, the rotation thrusters will continue to look enabled (open/boosting), even after you stop pressing WASD/moving the right stick/holding LB. It also causes the side rotators to flip back into the wings instead of out like the animation's supposed to do, so it looks silly. There's no effect on gameplay, however.

      • Double-tapping reset instantly reset vehicle...

        I noticed that if you quickly tap the reset key twice instead of just once, the game instantly resets your vehicle (skips the explosion cutscene). While this isn't really a big problem, it could give players an unfair advantage against players who aren't aware of it.

        • When on of the wings gets cutten off, then sometimes the fire of the boosters on the wing is still visuable.

          When I was playing, I suddenly flew trough a laser, only half the car was left and then I still saw the fire of the booster, which was on the wing.

              • Disable local carwarnings object,Wrong way not disabled

                Trials of mutecity is a prime example of this.
                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-X94OdaxVY

                I copied this "DISABLELocalCarWarnings object from a official level(Forget which one) for DISTANTHRALL.
                It works in DISTANTHRALL but when i used the object in Trials of mutecity it just didnt work.

                • [Editor] Spherecollider for InterpolateToOnTrigger scales in location with the attached object

                  If you scale up one of the objects with the InterpolateToOnTrigger properties to 5 times the size, and move the sphere collider 10 units, the collision zone will have actually moved 50 units.

                  I'm pretty sure the size does not scale like this, just the location.
                  Other sphere colliders may be affected by this, I haven't tested this thorouly.

                  • [Editor] Fog obscures transparent materials (GlobalFog)

                    I don't know that I can describe this any better, transparent materials (such as wing trails and car bloom) don't render on top of fog, creating odd effects. This is more visible with the GlobalFog object, which creates a thick layer of fog just below the car.

                    • (Build 3679) Workshop unsubscribed popup appears while playing

                      Double posting here
                      https://twitter.com/California292/status/608761426740670465

                      It seems to happen more often if you skip the workshop update before it connects to the workshop. It seems like it continues doing the update in the background if you skip it early enough, and then the unsubscribed popup appears, but you still have control over the car.

                            While testing a track in the editor and travelling very fast (using low DragScale Gravity Triggers), The message: 'The Host has left the game, Now returning to Main Menu' appeared, forcing me back to the main menu (without saving changes to the track)
                            This is the second time this has happened, and I have no idea what specific actions cause it.

                                  While I hosted server today and opened the chat window to say bye, the chat cleared itself after a few messages. Then something got written again. But after this the same thing happened again and chat window was clear again. It looked like a very short blinking of the chat while that bug ocurred.

                                    • collision errors with simples, capsule objects

                                      the issue is when i use any capsule with collision and resize them the radius of collision is expanded beyond the object.
                                      I only have this issue with capsules all other simple objects work just fine no matter how i resize them.
                                      The link im posting shows the issue with a emissive capsule with collision.
                                      Spoilers because the video contains a very early level idea.
