Which brings me back to my original question: Can I get an example robot where the ties are acting weird ?

most of the MBs in the beastiary have ties that are somewhat spastic and 'strange' if you ask me...

I am just not going to change robot radios when implementing chloroplasts, it is not a perfect fix, but it should do.

The main problem was due to the way tie physics are calculated very big robots allowed the tie to go negative.

'go negative'?

Here is an illustration:

tie is measured from the center of the robot although it is displayed from the robots edge so we have:

( xx)xxxxxxx(xx )

now the tie length limit before it snaps is:

 xxxxxxxxxxxx

if the robot is too big, say:

(                 )

then the tie will snap at any rate.


It is a little more complex then that, because this new explanation I just gave you has nothing to do with 'go negative.' But, it does if you look at the code.
