This issues has been mentioned before by others, how overturned vehicles can be needlessly difficult to rescue, and I'd like to add my voice to the following fixes which should be relatively easy to make:
- Allow manual steering or left/right steer preference in overturned vehicles. It looks like this was in the original SpinTires but was removed for some odd reason. Auto-steering is fine for towed vehicles that are on their wheels, but not for overturned vehicles.
- For overturned vehicles default to the "pull" winch rather than the "drive" winch. It's annoying to have to keep switching this, when the overturned vehicle has no ability to drive since it can't start the engine.
Sometimes dragging a vehicle onto a slope and then pulling it from the other side (down-slope) works, but some vehicles are too tall or heavy to be rescued this way.
