Not sure if this is still possible, but I believe a ship one of my characters is on was ported to the middle of nowhere. Anyone I can PM with details?

One of my characters cannot seem to go anywhere, the ship keeps stopping to keep from hitting the shore, but they are in the middle of the ocean

I am not certain who to message

Nope probably just more inspirational design and implementation. I guess I must of just sailed over the island that was in my path.

Hi everyone!

The most weird thing happened to one of my characters:

He entered an unlocked pickup (not his pickup!), took all the fuel from its tank and waited for another character to step in. When she entered, the owner (my character had no idea this pickup had an owner!) also entered and locked both in, stepping out. My character drove off from town...

Noting anything wrong? :P

Now, things are this way:

First - they both are on the road, in an empty tank pickup

Second - the game says my character cannot fill up the tank, because he doesn't have the right key. Huh???? Since when a character can't fill up a tank, even without having the vehicle key????

Third - the pickup empty of fuel, shouldn't have moved in the first place, nor getting my character on the road. It had zero fuel on the tank!

Fourth - having a screwdriver doesn't work, since the lock must be unlocked to be destroyed

Fifth - having a crowbar doesn't work either, since my character doesn't have anywhere to go, because he is on the road, therefore the use of the crowbar can't be triggered

Can someone give me some hint or something over this particularly weird situation? Thanks!

Not a bug. You can move cars without fuel down roads at 1% a tic. Also, only owners can put fuel into tanks by design. If you want to put fuel in a tank, you'll need to move the car back to a town, and successfully break the lock that way. Turning around should do it.

Alright! Got it! Thanks!
