Hermit Crab no longer offers trades to clients when shop level reaches 9

  • Fixed

I can't seem to access her shop anymore, now that I got her at a high friendliness level.

I believe the problem is with the type of net variable used for research types. Since they're all 3-bit integers, they can only contain values of 0-7. But at level 9, the research level is 9 so the net variable can't hold it anymore. The fix would be to either change the type of netvar used for research stations or change the research level system for the shop so it goes 0,1,2,3,4,5 instead of 0,1,3,5,7,9.

Steps to Reproduce

Get the hermit crab to level 9 on a world with caves enabled.

@Electroely Was this a new world or world you retrofitted? I've heard retrofitted worlds are having this issue.

It was on a new world. I figured out the issue.

It's a problem with the networking. Research levels are transmitted through 3-bit integers, meaning they can only be numbers of 0-7. The crab's shop goes up to level 9, which isn't compatible with the networking. I'll be updating my bug report with this info.
