I thought a player with gas mask equipted shouldn't receive poison gas damage being inside the vehicle (i've checked inside big truck) when actually it does.

Do you have filters in your inventory too?

Yes, even have checked it twice)

Can confirm have both (full stack of filters in inventory & gas mask equipped) taking damage while in car, not taking damage when outside the car. (in same place)

Happened to me too, had three trucks/deaths stuck in the same spot till I worked out that I had to be out side them for the mask to work. Had to have two trucks and inventory ferry stuff through gas field.

This is rapidly becoming my most hated bug. Unless it's intentional to limit exploration atm.

i had this issue and lost a purple power slug temporarily, dismantled my vehicle and then looted the box it drops. Built foundations around the area to drive around it since the gas was stopping me from making it to my oil deposits.

Can confirm.  This is still a bug.  In an enclosed cab of a vehicle, especially a planet exploring one like the 6x6, one shouldn't need a mask at all.  I can understand the need for a mask in the 4x4 as you are exposed, but i don't know if driving the 4x4 gives damage while wearing the mask too, only so far in the 6x6.

It is STILL an issue. I hope that get fixed soon. (and this topic will get bumped because of this post)

An equipped gas mask or hazmat suit should work whilst driving.

When I needed to retrieve carbon for my base, I did have to drive up through a path with poison pillars. It was a pain to record. Since gasmasks didn't work in the truck, when I reached the station, I got off the truck and used an medicinal inhaler to replenish my healt. Then I did go back in the truck to continue the recording. I think this feature should be added to avoid that hassle.

We had that problem, too. When inside the big truck, with gas mask equiped and filters in the inventory, we still took poison damage.

It is because items gets uneqipped while in the vehicles... I agree though there should be a filter on the cars or you should keep the gast masks on
