@XenoRad My thoughts too. My guess is that MR2 will be close to release by the time this next MR1 patch comes, if it ever comes. And I don't see Saber fixing the other issues that we've both mentioned. MR1 is unfortunately a low priority for them. Fortunately the updated ST more than makes up for that. But the trolls need to leave it alone (it's been unavailable in the Steam store for the past week).
I just tested the issue again and it happens only with the "trailer cart" that's attached to the "cart". This is related to the duplicated attachment issue I mentioned previously. If you use "log cart hitch" and "long log cart" which look identical to the other two parts, the shadows are fine.
Ant its confirmed that consoles won't have this update...since its too complicated to approve it with ms and sony.
Which is not confidence inspiring for the future if the devs just "can't bother" to patch the console version.
I guess I'll forget pre-ordering SnowRunner and just wait for a deep discount if this is the level of support we can expect on the consoles.
