4.167 - Towing doesn't work if vehicle is mostly out of view

Recommended Posts

Found an odd one with towing when I couldn't figure out why sometimes towing wasn't working for me: If the vehicle you are trying to click on to tow is mostly off the edge of the screen it won't try to hitch it up even though the vehicle label cursor shows up as normal. First screenshot is the angle where it won't hitch, second when it will hitch.

Looks like the center frame of a vehicle must be in LOS with the camera.

Yeah, may have to add that to the wiki, if a fix is difficult.  Thanks for going down the rabbit hole to figure out what the problem was Rotar, +20 xp!

There should be uniformity in the handling of the label and the hitching of the vehicle.

If the label is visible, hitching should be possible; conversely, if hitching isn't possible, the label shouldn't show.

Yep, I didn't know the trick was to stare directly at the vehicle you're going to tow to assert dominance over it. Only then will it submit to your attempts to hitch up. :D

I can see that now clearly, I was just looking at the problem from the wrong angle.
