Well, this was a 1st. I have seen many a liquid tank upside down and stay that way. The jpg above is a steel tank upside down. What I think happened is that the tree is stopping it from turning over. Still very funny.

LOL. it could be that, but also the game engine gets confused and doesn't turn over tanks that have flat tops. I've seen lots of tanks treads up laying on thier front quarters spinning in circles unable to turn over. I'll grab an anim next time

You see, the tanks has 4 contact points, one in each corner on the tread side (Not suprisingly, they are where the 'dust' comes from). at least one of these must make contact with the ground in order for the tank to move. if none touches down, the game engine is suppose to flip it over, but for some reason, it gets confused as to which side is up.

Ni...it is a very cool flag...that is why I use it. Also most servers now have the master flag pack on them. Even Ras had to cave in and put it on.

So, Ni...when are you going to hit the track??
