Negative Durability

Is this supposed to happen? For some reason in some of the scenarios I was working on, I got Negative Durability. Is this actually a thing? Or is this a bizarre glitch?
What makes an engine negatively-durable?

Re: Negative Durability

I apologize, I didn't get to save it. It was last night, I was tired and grumpy so I just closed out of the game. I wasn't sure if anybody had similar issues, if it was already reported, or it was something I missed in the game itself.

Re: Negative Durability

I've seen negative economy and bizarre figures come from glitches in the mathematical modelling, but negative durability doesn't appear to be a glitch commonly encountered in the game, so if you do find it again, posting the car/screenshots in question may help us discover whether it's a game issue or an installation issue.

Re: Negative Durability

I think it is in the Cold Steel Taxi scenario if you select 4bbl carbs or something. It is not really a glitch as you should end up with zero reliability unless you draw up the quality slider a lot. So the bug is displaying negative numbers, but the calcs are correct. Parts that you unlock with tech pool suffer from reliability issues which you need to offset with quality.
