Exploding Barrel Bug

Post by skace » June 27th, 2012, 8:06 am

Place an exploding barrel on top of a satchel of reagents, when you pick the barrel back up - the satchel and any of it's contents vanish as well.

OS: Windows 7
Version: Latest Steam Build

That's a good one. I don't think I've seen it mentioned before, and I expect it probably affects all platforms. I don't have access to a system to try it on right now, though. Can anyone else confirm?

Somebody should probably PM BW about this - I suspect he's busy on development and not reading the forum much these days, so PM'ing would probably be the best thing to do.

But this seems like a kind of important bug that I'd bet BW would rather hear about sooner rather than later.

It sounds like, in general, there needs to be a 'blocked grid script' set up for situations like this, and trying to camp on the same spot as a preexisting loot sack, etc.

Important bug - simple fix. I've made sure it is on the list of bugs to get fixed in the Book 3 engine. We'll get back around to patching it up in B2 when we do the next update (possibly/probably the Trilogy Collectors release).

Yes. If the saved games don't automatically appear, click the copyright info on the main menu (start screen) to see where your games are being saved to and manually copy the saved games to the new location.
