TL;DR
Make the screen not wobble with the Spidertron. It's really annoying.

What ?
When you walk while in the Spidertron and stop it wobbles from inertia. The screen wobbles with it. Please make the screen stop wobbling with the Spidertron.
Why ?
It's really annoying when you are building electric poles or any buildings you want in a straight line. You inevitably end up placing things crooked and have to fix it.

Maybe the game needs a "Spidertron stabilization module" that can go in the Spidertron's equipment grid, akin to the belt immunity module. :D

I like this idea. A Spidertron gyro, or accelerometer.
Kind of like in Mechwarrior two, if your mechs gyros were destroyed in that game your aim wobbled with every step.

Just, don't stop the wobble the Spidertron does, it makes it feel more real. The module should just stabilize your screen. Thematically; the Spidertron control interface compensates for the wobble rather than removing it.

Thank you! Almost didn't see your comment, why isn't there an option to autosubscribe to all threads you start yourself? I even took for granted that was default behaviour.

Yes, please remove the wobble. It's making me sea sick. I'd like to use spidertron more, but I can't with that wobble 🦀.
