so my blacksmith got bugged out, and i tried the whole, move the anvil so the mats on it get picked up(which used to fix it) yet now it doesn’t fix it anymore, so i un deployed the anvil, to try and fix it that way.
now i have an unclaimed anvil in my blacksmiths inventory, with no way to redeploy it. I tried the following:
1)go into item placement, place item on ground, when i click to place it closes the window, yet no anvil is placed.
2)created a floor, followed above, and it placed the ghost of the anvil correctly, yet nothing gets placed after 5-10 mins of waiting.
3) placing it in a house does the same as #2, (now i have 3 ghost anvils to be placed, yet no one places them because it is in the blacksmiths backpack) (i think)
4)demoting him to worker, promoting him back to blacksmith. no change
5)demoting him to worker, promoting other to blacksmith. (no change) and at no time, was i able, in any of the above to create or place a new or existing anvil.
thanks for any help with this, as my only alternative is go on without a blacksmith forever, or restart game. and yes restarting is an easy fix, but who wants easy! lol
i am software literate, if this matters, and if there is a way to place one, with a map editor or whatnot , if given brief instructions i could prolly do it.
ps. i can access the anvil workshop window just fine, by clicking on the blacksmith and selecting open workshop, yet there is no actual anvil for him to do any work if i tell him to.
