After doing some hard-checks of the Crawler steering ability, I have found that the Crawler lack's sufficient steering capability to handle the steep turns of the Crawlerway,

It can't for example handle the turn towards 39A very well.

Hi Orbiterfan,

During (high) time accelerations or at "real time", too?

Both. The Crawler got a 7 turn angle. It seems like the current one only has a 4-5.5 turn angle. I believe the entire turn agle capability is used for the 39A turn.

Hi Orbiterfan,

the issues should be fixed now, the crawler now has a smaller turning diameter and accelerates/brakes slowlier during time acceleration.

The crawler worked great on my end.   Wonder if it will be able to pick up the Mobile Launcher on 39B too.
