Title: So my game pinged up an error message. And I blame that pesky trapper for it.
Summary: So basically, my game went seriously wrong somewhere. I hadn’t actually played with a release containing the trapper before so forgive me if I have misunderstood mechanics, but as far as I could see, the trapper was broken right from the get go. I could tell him to move to somewhere, but he placed not one single trap for the animals. This quite frustrated me and I don’t know if I was doing it wrong (it was red when I tried to place it anywhere at all, wooded or open-space, near animals and not) but I could not place it at all. This was the first problem.
The second problem was that at some point, that I unfortunately didn’t notice, the game through a curveball at me. It refused to let me click off of him, and I permanently had him selected, unable to select chairs to be placed from the outbox or other workers, though commands like harvest did still work.
The third problem came when I told him to return home and empty his inventory, which up until that point I had not pressed. This is the only suspect I have for the next bug, which is probably best displayed in picture form:
Somehow I was just able to spam click banners. I don’t know what I did, but I decided to overdo it, because yolo. All I was doing was clicking constantly in that area. After getting about 10 or so, I stopped clicking. He then started to walk to most of them and they disappeared, which would be fine, except:
For some reason these two flags (the other is my town’s flag) decided to stick around since he never decided to walk to them. I believe one of them had been sticking around before the original and that was why I decided to spam flags, but the second definitely came from the flag spamming.
Then, to cement my problems, a couple of minutes later the game finally crashed. It didn’t crash-crash but it threw up this error:
I apologise that the writing is quite small, however I have the save file untouched since that error message available if anyone would like it.
Also note in the final picture the double stacked building plans this was done a while before the error message so I don’t believe to be the cause, and the second house was never even attempted to be built, but the reason I’m not throwing up a bug report for it is that I’m gonna wait until Alpha 4 when constructions redone and it might be fixed. Thought it was amusing though
Steps to reproduce:
I honestly have no idea.
None of my problems?
The game hates me
Notes: Apologies it’s perhaps not amazingly formatted but I didn’t think the normal format would be so useful for this particular bug report.
