[BUG/PC][VIDEOS] Major physics glitch when loading a saved game when inside Seamoth or PRAWN suit.

I would like to bring attention to a considerable physics glitch that I and some friends have experienced while playing the latest version of Subnautica. By latest I mean a fully patched game as of 23rd Jan 2020. We all play on PC using the Epic Games version although I don't think that last bit really matters.

I have attached videos below, but basically, if you get into your PRAWN or Seamoth and save your game. When you close Subnautica and then load up your saved game again, the physics of said Seamoth or PRAWN goes crazy.

We have all tested this on a brand new Creative save (for troubleshooting purposes) and have spawned in said vehicles using the console to save time. There are no mods involved here, totally vanilla game. However I first discovered this bug in my latest Survival playthrough so its not unique to Survival mode or to spawning the vehicles, I just did this to save time for testing purposes.

As you can see these issues are quite major bugs, especially the PRAWN suit variants. They have been introduced to the game via one of the recent updates. I hope the devs can find a fix for these very soon.

    This happened to me too today ''(Prawn Suit Glitch Video Two (Much MUCH worse when inside the PCF)''. Exactly the same glitch. It's my first time playing this game so I don't want to start from scratch again :-;. I hope this gets resolved.

    Thanks for your reply. The more people that share their experience the better chance this gets taken seriously. Sorry to hear its messed up your first playthrough, if you press E to exit the vehicle the minute it happens, maybe you can save your PRAWN.

    I'm guessing a recent patch broke this. Make sure to mention whether you are playing regular or experimental.

    The subnautica discord may get quicker replies, I'm adding it to my signature.

    Stuck, and just want to most recent base/Cyclops? Use "Warpme" command. Want to get out of the ceiling? Press F1 and note your camera postion. First number is North/South, second number is up/down, and third is East/West. Reduce the 2nd number by 10, then use "warp x y z" (where x, y, and z are the position you want to be).

    Yes, there are major problems around the Prawn Suit in the updated engine. There are other reports about these problems:

    But if you press E button when loading ends, mostly can save the situation.
    Do not save in Primary Containment Facility (and in areas joinded to this by Archs) when you with the Prawn Suit, always go back to the water first.
