[1.186.500] Opposed gravity fields doesnt cancel out with artificial mass blocks

    Hello there,

    today I loaded one of my old ships that also runs with an gravity drive.I noticed that the ship doesnt go in the direction its supposed to go and investigated the cause of it.

    It seems that when you have two gravity generators with opposing gravity fields, they dont cancel out each other as they are supposed to.

    I have a simple setup as shown in this screenshot:

    The gravity generators were not altered in any way. so they both are at the default 1g of acceleration.

    As you can see in the screenshot my gravity meter says 0g of acceleration and well right now since I am with jetpack I am moving at 0m/s.

    But this little contraption started to move on its own. In the direction "up" from my cameras point of view.

    When I land on it using magnetic boots, it says that Its moving with exactly 0.23 m/s. When I enable both gravity generators at the same time I would not expect any movement. But to make sure it has not something to do with the time the generators activate I added some thrusters in each direction.

    they are able to stop the grid slowly. but once I turn them back off the grid slowly starts accellerating to 0.1m/s again.

    So something seems a little off here.

    Interestingly when I put both gravity generators next to each other, set one to 1g and the other to -1 the grid doesnt move at all.

    Edit: I shall be corrected.

    even if one is set to -1 it starts moving on its own right after I tabbed back into the game...

    All my discoveries were made using an Empty-World in Single-Player

    I just check witchcraft drive core (rotational grav drive) and it is working and holding orbit over the moon.

    I just built one in creative being careful to use mirroring to place the 2 reactors simultaneously last. There was a quick motion when power was first supplied, but it stopped within a second. Grid behaves normally after that.

    Interesting. I restarted my game in the meantime and tried again.

    then it worked perfectly.

    Not sure what was going on. also my old ships grav-drive works perfectly again now... Maybe my game just had a hiccups.
