Drystone won't suck up water

I placed a wetstone part way up a cliff face, on small outcropping, and let it pour water.
The wetstone poured water for a bit, creating a puddle at the bottom of the cliff.
I placed a drystone out on the plain beneath the wetstone.
The puddle stopped expanding, as expected.
Then, I removed the wetstone.
The puddle remained.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Place wetstone on a cliffside outcropping
  2. Wait for puddle to form on the plain below
  3. place dry stone on plain below
  4. wait to ensure puddle stops expanding
  5. remove wetstone

Expected Results:
The drystone would absorb all the water in the puddle

Actual Results:
The drystone sits in a puddle, seemingly with no effect.


Here is a screenshot of the problem:

the puddle should eventually evaporate on its own… its still odd that the drystone wouldnt absorb it though.

The drystone will accelerate the puddle drying up, but it doesn’t remove it instantly like y’all want. For that size puddle though, if you use a couple, you’ll see what I’m saying.


Dry stones will evaporate puddles in the next patch. There are also a few more fixes to improve wet stones as well.


Thanks @Albert :merry:
