I am having a problem with vehicles "floating" above the ground when decending down hill in a group...

They seem to hover above the ground at their original elevation...

Is there anyway to keep them "on the ground" when they are moving like this?

I cant stand seeing tanks in the air! Mad

Well Zephyr has informed me that this error seems to only occur when vehicles are used in groups...

Same reason for vehicles sitting on their rear hulls pointing straight up into the sky...

No known solution except to not use vehicles in groups on anything but perfectly flat terrain...

A solution for this might be to edit the waypoints of the groups and add a 0 altitude height to the waypoint... ?? Anyone ever try that?

Only solution I can think of for this game bug is an altitude change on the waypoint as I noted above or creating the objects using the shape as a shadow shapes so they always stay flat on the terrain. This will only work for daytime objects as there are no shadows at night so they would be invisible...

CAG out...
