Three weeks ago I bought an Orca, and went out immediately to mine with it.
After some time I realized something is very wrong. Larger rocks have such a big hitbox, I if I’m not super careful I get stuck on them.
The UI displays I am a couple meters away from them and my ship starts to glance off from these asteroids, but in reality I am something like 2-2,5km away from the edge of the asteroid. Not the center core of the asteroid, the edge.
This makes navigating in a belt very annoying, and it makes warping out very painful and the ship aligning is messed up constantly. Sometimes I have to mine my way out first if I navigate my ship into an unfortunate location.
Lastly this hit box makes mining large asteroids a real pain because not only the drones move very far away from my ship due to the asteroids large diameter, but in addition I am stuck even further away due to the hitbox of the asteroid.
