Bug by lefting the driver seat[]

Hello, By playing the game and building vehicules in chalenge mode and creative mode, I found a bug when I left the driver seat. When I press a key to go foreward or backward and I left immediately, my characters go on the same direction. So if I leave the button pressed in the foreward direction for example, my character will go foreward so I can't go backward (if I press the key to go backward, my character will stop will the key is pressed). I think the problem is that the direction of the vehicule and the character are linked but I'm not sure. Waiting an answer Nicow 7703

I'm not sure what kind of answer you're expecting. This is a community-run wiki, so if you're reporting a bug, this is the wrong place. For that, you'll have to contact Axolot directly, either on Twitter or via Email. BoxFigs (talk) 15:19, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Game stops responding when im playing.[]

I will start up scrap mechanic on steam, and after entering my world the game crashes.

I have checked my PC specs and they should be compatible with the games requirements.

Fatal error[]

the game keeps failing (fatally crashing without bugsplat) when selecting 'creative mode' on the main page--see screenshot.
this started happening after I deleted corrupted world files (in the files) for reference right after survival release, the rest of the game works fine.
I have tried all I can think of, fully deleting all files remotely connected to SM & uninstalling the game, reinstalling it, and I still have the same problem.
I've found a few other people who are having similar problems, here is a link to those discussions.

thank you if you reply ^-^. - Preceding unsigned comment was added by Hoshimi Draws (talk - contribs) at 23:03, October 21, 2020‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

I figured it out, go to game properties in steam, turn steam synk OFF and Have fun ^-^
if this doesn't work, KEEP IT OFF and delete all files in "sores/AppData/Roaming/Axalot Games/Scrap Mechanic/user/user_###########/save". - Preceding unsigned comment was added by at 07:39, October 22, 2020 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
