Storage movement errors


#1

ive noticed a strange bug were the items in a crate, chest or vault seem to dissaper if you move them…

it seems to happen at random so im not really sure how to go about making it happen again


#2

Hey there @Fralee, are you saying that if you move a storage device (crate, chest, vault) with items stored inside, that not all of those items are inside when the item is placed in a new location?


#3

ya I moved 5 vaults with 100+ items in each one then when I checked them in the new placements 4 of the 5 had 0 items


#4

That’s definitely odd. So you’ve only seen it happen with vaults…not crates or chests?


#5

ive seen it happen with all the storage ‘boxes’ but atm im using stone chests and vaults atm


#6

OK. I’ve never paid that close attention (nor do I move storage units that often). Hey @8BitCrab, @Relyss, @SteveAdamo, any of you seen/heard this before?


#7

ive gotten into the habbit of saving before moving any of those storage items now


#8

Would be great to get one of those saves! Specifically one where you notice missing items afterwards…


#9

im not sure a save would work in this case…
I can reload the same save and the items will not disappear .

I can still offer a save if needed :laughing:


#10

Well that is definitely strange…Let’s wait for the other mods to come say hi here, see what they have to say.


#11

I’m afraid I’m in the same boat… I don’t think I’ve ever specifically looked to make sure items made it from A to B (within storage)…

i think that would definitely help! :+1:


#12

well i haven’t played the game in the last while. and i don’t believe i’ve seen it reported yet.


#13

@sdee @jomaxro @8BitCrab @yshan @Albert

I think I might have found a different bug…
ive noticed when going to move the full crates/vaults a lot of the time my Hearthlings will take one from a stash and place it instead of moving the one I wanted moved

the -> arrow dissapers on the one I wanted moved but it dose not get moved, one is taken fomr my stash and put down


#14

@Fralee, have you encountered this in A14? I haven’t seen any recent reports…


#15

it taking one out of storage rather then moving the one you wanted. haven’t noticed it yet
it looks like it has been fixed at this point


#16

This just happened to me on r523 A14. I can reproduce it by changing the distance of the chest placed from the empty chest. If I move a full chest from far away and place it by the stockpile that holds empty version of the chest, usually the empty chest gets placed instead. If I move the full chest and place it far away from the stockpile holding the empty chest (doesn’t need to be really far) the full chest can be moved. I don’t know if that distance away from the empty chest is relative to the distance of the full chest or a static number as I haven’t really tested it, just found a sweet spot to move my trapper chests nearer to my main village without it triggering the empty chest to be placed instead.


#17

Alrighty then…back to bug reports we go!


#18

ill test it out again in the morning its 2am here atm and im tired >.<


#19

Eep, sorry for not reporting earlier, I just figured it was a known bug and didn’t need more input.


#20

No worries. The were no updates on the report since November, and I am going through old reports at the moment. That’s why I asked!
