Free Fuel bug/exploit [KNOWN]

#1 Post by Cyanide » 10 Jan 2016 11:27

I´ve noticed a bug with the fuel price that makes it become free.
There are two ways as I have found this one out (can be more, not sure about it)

1. Go to a fuel station, fill up, then immediately (i.e. before you drive off) go to your Profiles screen, and then Continue straight away. You will be back at the gas station with your full tank, but the cost will have reset to zero.

2. Once you've filled up with fuel (but before you drive away!), go to the Company Manager screen and relocate both truck and driver to a spare garage slot. This will instantly teleport you to that garage with your full tank of fuel but without taking the payment for filling up! Watch this video to see it in action:


Also this was tested on a clean profile so there is no mods in any part or form making this to happen

So you think its realistic when you can refuel up to full tank then teleport to a garage so you don´t need to pay for the cost? Very realistic :P

Erm... This issue has nothing to do with WoT jobs, because Adamishc has no job at all in his video.

A known bug it was reported back in May: viewtopic.php?f=166&t=182680

Max even tells you another way to exploit it. Bad Max. :P

Maybe it's just one of those things where it is too hard to fix.

I suppose one way would be for the game to auto-save the moment you let go of the Enter button (or which ever you use to fuel up). If it autosaves immediately after the key is released, or if any other key is pressed (so you can't hit esc while holding enter) then it will pretty much solve the problem.

.. or deduct fuel cost from user's account immediately after the fuel stops?
Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts.. do.

Is it realistic to teleport to a garage? Even in Star Trek I find it a bit hard to buy it :D
Yes it's a bug obviously but an exploit? Is switching off realistic fuel an exploit?
