    Hello!

    I am pretty sure that quite a lot of people who have played Flood for a bit are aware of this glitch where you would glitch through your boat for no reason. I would like to get an idea of what is causing this. If you guys know some solutions, then feel free to put them down below. :D

    This is just how source's engine is. Sometimes the collision between player and moving props doesn't work. This can't be fixed.

    So pretty much, it's due to packet loss.

    It can't really be fixed, I have had this issue before, try making a forums suggestion at the garrys mod group page in steam. You should be able to find it out.

    No. It's due to how source's engine was coded. Sometimes when players are on [can collide] props they will just glitch through them when the water rises due to collision being kind of garbage in source 1 engine.

    avoid big boats, ive only glitched through on bigger boats and not an small or average sized boat.

    Use the regular weld. I'm pretty sure that reduces that chances.

    Imo quote myself here. It's just gmod's engine. Nothing you can do to prevent it and nothing you can do to cause it to happen. Doesn't matter what weld or what size boat. It just happens sometimes.

    It causes to me alot and i die alot beacuse of it,peoples are saying its gmod engine or its the weld tool but i dont know,i think it beacuse of lags or if you stay afk so it doesnt recognize that you are on it so it gets un collided.

    Its because of Gmods Engine, it sometimes fails to See your Player standing on a Prop, resulting you in glitching through it

    I don't think there is any solution for this problem, it's just the glitchy engine lol. Earlier today when I was playing I flew off my boat straight into the air while trying to shoot other players boats.

    The flying in the air is probably caused by the Event the Glitching through boat is Engine
