Not sure if anyone else has bothered trying to use the bronze armor in the newest update (DEV-2081) since its of equal strength to the thick leather vest but it appears to float behind and to the side of the poor footman. The bug still persists even if I demote/promote the footman to worker and back and the bug works on all my footmen.
Here he is “tanning” his six-pack in front of his sister-at-arms, Marianne. Showoff!
I was looking forward to seeing the different armour models. This was a bit disappointing, but I can confirm it. No idea if there was any trigger / reason for it. The only other info I have is that this hearthling was a level 2 trapper with a pet, I believe.
Above you can see Bob and Fred floating next to there friends, making sure abbs are shown and hair is kept nice, underneath that the ladies show how to dress, though they don’t use the helmet (may be intentional?)
All my Hearthlings were a workers before becoming a footman. And @phector2004 I too was excited to make legions of fully armored footman to take out the goblins, still working on making a smithy level 4 so I can try steel.
so have metal ores been put in game already? i havent came across one and im getting alot less stone so i figured the stone i WOULD have been getting had been coded as ore viens but wasnt actually dropping yet
@apoch1999 Have you dug down till you’re digging actual stone or in a big gray stone mountain, I have yet to find a pure vein of anything though I think you can. Actual stone still has a chance to drop ore, but dirt wont.
I have a bug where whenever I make an iron set of armor with my blacksmith, the blacksmith makes the set but when a male hearthling equips it the helmet floats on the left side of his head. I would upload an image, but due to me being a new user I am unable to. I do have an image of the bug however and it is very annoying as it means, unless I want my male footmen to have a helmet companion helping them patrol, I can not make iron armor for my footmen. This also happens with the bronze breastplate in a male hearthling where the breastplate floats on the left side of his head and does not go on his torso. The female footmen have no problems with the armor and equip it fine, I assume because their ponytails are too fabulous for the helmets. I had this bug before the official release of Alpha 8, in the ‘latest’ build on steam, but I did not post it as a bug. Now that the full release of Alpha 8 is out i am posting it in the hope it will be fixed sometime soon. Good job on the amazing game anyway! I love playing it!
