Building Template Bug

There appears to be a consistent bug when flower boxes are included in a building template. It doesn’t happen every time but the majority of the time it does.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a building template and place either type of flower box under a window or windows
  2. Save the template and then use it to place a building
  3. Rotate the building while getting ready to place, the positions of the flower boxes will be bugged and with either be floating off to the side, off to one side on the building, or even within the blocks of the building itself.


Version Number and Mods in use:
No mods, current version.

Hey there @Etoranze, welcome to the Discourse! I thought @yshan had solved the template rotation issue - but I could be wrong. Do you have the save and template where this is occurring?

To upload a save, locate the folder in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stonehearth\saved_games (assuming a default Steam install), zip the individual save’s folder (not the entire saved_games folder), and upload it. If the *.zip is less than 10 MB, feel free to upload it directly to the Discourse. If larger, please upload it to a cloud storage site like Dropbox, Google Drive, File Dropper, etc. and post the sharing link here.

In order to upload a building template:

  1. Save your build as a template in game.
  2. Open your game directory.
    Default location for a Steam install is:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stonehearth
    Default location for a Humble install is:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Stonehearth\
  3. Navigate to the building templates stored in \saved_objects\stonehearth\building_templates
  4. Locate the .json file for your template. For example, if you wanted to upload the “Clay Dining Room” template, find clay dining room.json.
  5. If you created this template in a recent version, you will also have a .png, for bug fixing purposes this is not important and does not need to be included in the .zip.
  6. Compress the .json file to a .zip file.
  7. Right-click the file you wish to zip.
  8. Left click Send to.
  9. Left click Compressed (zipped) folder
  10. Hit Enter on your keyboard.
  11. Upload the file to this thread in the Discourse by clicking the upload button in the editor and navigating to the file, or drag the file into the editor with your mouse. (9.9 KB)
