[Server Bug] Blocks missing on finished buildings
•Server, Client or Website?
Personal whitelisted server - Details upon private request
Windows Server 2016
Windows 7 / IE11
•Detailed Description of Issue:
On every single building I have build, I got disappearing blocks when I log back into the game, and haven't been able to modify the walls, add doors and such.
Occurs on every building I've build.
•Steps to reproduce bug/issue:
I just build a building like a House or a Builder's Hut, and the next time I log-in (sometimes about a day later) random blocks is disappeared.
I've found out that about 2 days after the builds has finished I was able to modify walls and doors, but so was other users on the server (on my buildings) even though theire all blocked in my deeds, so I decided to report this anyway.
•Client / Server Version?
Screenshots attached below.
The last Picture shows an alternative way I made into the house, before I was able to make a hole in the wall and place a real door.
Had this happen in exactly the same way.
that seems more like griefing to me. :-/
could you check if people are not added to the deed whitelist ? and or if the building is still having is owner thing up ? you can see that if you enter if you enter a building and it tells who the owner is . that with digging under is a know issue that need to be changed so protection also goes under your building some blocks
It's happened to me too, each day one random block will be missing from completed buildings that have noone but me on the deed.
mhh very strange .. i still feel its some sort of griefing, can anyone try to reproduce this on a singleplayer server?
I've had a few similar issues, such as not being able to remove a block from my own home that suddenly appeared, not being able to place blocks for a new building I own because they're too close, and my personal favorite, blocks rotating on their own, so suddenly the bottom block in the middle of my wall is perpendicular to the rest of the wall...I assume most of these are actually client bugs.
I've seen it happen with only me and a friend of mine on the server. I know him personally and asked if he knew what was happening.
He said he didn't take it and looked around and found another few holes. There is no reason for him to take any and lie because we all try to figure out bugs together. Hence why I have so many reports :p
ok .. any idea after how long this start to happen ? or any other possible reasons that might cause this ( picture 3 seems clearly to be some one digging in to a house )
I'll agree I have not seen stuff like picture 3 happen, but we have no idea how or when it happens for now.
@NoBlackThunder Picture 3 is myself digging into the house, which I also mentioned right above the picture :)
@NoBlackThunder I will look into the deed whitelist thing, when I get home from work
ok =) just wanna make sure i don't add user created thing to the bug list since the developers have already a long list with bugs =)
@NoBlackThunder Ofcause, sorry if that made it more confusing.
I only added the third picture to illustrate the workaround I used to get into the house where I wasn't able to place a door after I pressed the finish building button..
@NoBlackThunder On our server it happened on my buildings after half a Day or so.
I logged out after I finished the buildings and when i logged in the next day it had happened.
I have asked the other users on our server to keep an eye out for the same thing on theire buildings..
mhh ok .. we still need to track down what could cause this .. I gonna pin this post in hope to get faster and more information .. for now this is a very special bug i have issue to see what could cause random block disappearance. And i am sure it will be even harder for the dev's .. but i create parallel to this also an issue
ok .. keep your eyes out all together first of all what i wonder about if this could be a save issue !
so if blocks suddenly are gone. check the console log and see if there where any load errors or anything like that.
also i would like to now if those blocks are gone after a server restart ( are you using the server watcher that automatically restarts the server? and so on )
for developers https://github.com/StrangeLoopGames/Eco/issues/479
@NoBlackThunder Just checked my deeds, and every user is on the blocked list, not a single one on the whitelist at all..
The only errors i got, it the ones on this screenshot
We had a server restart that day, but the Blocks was already missing, in fact there were more missing a second time I re-logged. But on day 4 on the server, suddenly I was able to modify my Buildings and repair the "damages" so now I'm waiting to see if it happens again.
And yes, we have the ServerWatcher running, the restart mentioned above was done by that.
ok thanks usefull information it seems there is save / load issue that could cause this =) now we getting useful information on the cause =)
@NoBlackThunder Great, if more info is needed just yell :)
well the more info they can get the better it is =) so always shout out if you find more that could cause that / or more prove it might be related to a save / load issue
