Meteors can destroy the repaired clockwork statues

  • Pending

My clockwork statues spawned in range of a meteor shower field. After i repaired them with the suspicious marble pieces meteors destroyed the statues and suspicious marble pieces before i could mine the statues on a full moon. Now i have no way of obtaining the Knight and Rook sketches and i am unable to do the shadow clockwork and ancient fuelweaver fight.
A simple fix would be to have the Knight Rook and Bishop pawns included in the tumbleweed loot table from day one. Currently the pawn pieces are only added to the tumbleweed loot table once you have obtained the sketches from mining the statues on a full moon (which i was unable to do because meteors destroyed/ "mined" them before i had the chance.
To clarify, the Bishop statue was the only one still repaired so i mined it on a full moon for the sketch. However the other two statues were destroyed somehow.

Steps to Reproduce

1:Have your clockwork statue set piece spawn in range of a meteor shower field. 2: Repair clockwork statues with suspicious marble pieces. 3: Meteors hit repaired clockwork statues.
This results in you losing the suspicious marble pieces and having no way of obtaining the sketches required to start the shadow clockwork fight, also preventing you from fighting ancient fuelweaver.

Can't reproduce it at all: The only thing which can be destroyed is the sketch, but it is renewable by harvesting tumbleweeds. The heads and the statues on the other hand can't be destroyed by meteorites.

I repaired the statues with the suspicious marble pieces, waited a week for a new moon so i could mine them for the sketches, yet when i returned on the day before a new moon the statues were already back to their destroyed state and the suspicious marble pieces were gone. No sketches were on the ground either. The area was also littered with boulders as my statues were in the middle of the meteor shower range. I'm on ps4 btw so i now have no way of obtaining the sketches for the shadow clockwork fight or doing fuelweaver. I rolled back far as i could yet the statues were still destroyed. I play solo so no other players could of mined them. Any ideas? Is it possible that the sketches were also destroyed by the meteors during the shower? I have tried farming tumbleweeds yet so far no luck.

If it's not possible for meteors to destroy repaired statue heads (even though i'm fairly certain that's what happened) then what other event could of happened that destroyed the repaired statues while i was away? There are a few tree guards nearby that spawned from meteors destroying trees so could they have destroyed them? Or is it possible that after i repaired them the game glitched and reverted them back to their destroyed state and removed the suspicious marble pieces from the world?

Reading the post again,
First you have  to repair the body, then let meteor hit the repaired body.
Also tumble weeds only drop sketch if sketch already drop by repairing statues before, which in this case already gone and can no longer repaired. World is wasted.

oh so the first half part of the bug maybe wrong then, could you try throw meteorites at new moon or full moon?
Also the second part still remain same, if you hide/block way to fix statues, tumble weeds wont drop the corresponding sketch.
Example is this bug

Statue dropped sketch & summoned Rook just like intended, the sketch got destroyed by the falling meteorites.

That does have nothing in common with that bug.

hmm if sketch got destroyed by falling meteor then in the world you can still pick sketch from tumble weeds then.
but from what we see in the bug world the head/nose is gone but the body still remain, strange, maybe someone else griefed that server and carry the head/nose away.

It can also be a bug which does not exist in the PC version, a bug which is caused by mods, a mistake which has been done by the player who submitted the bug, or just an attempt to remove the statue system and allow players to skip it by harvesting Tumbleweeds:

I play ps4 DST so it wasn't a bug caused by mods, this happened on my solo server so nobody griefed it then carried the head/nose away, and i have no problem with the statue system so i wouldn't want it skipped by harvesting tumbleweeds. Harvesting tumbleweeds would be way slower as they have a 0.1% chance of spawning pawns so it would be a huge time investment compared to just tossing a saddle on a beef and transporting them in 1-2 days or carrying the marble pieces alone to the statues and repairing them in 3-4 days time.
 I'm just reporting what happened to me, this was my first world past 100 days and i'm upset i can't do the last two boss fights. I don't believe i made any mistakes, and again i'm not even 100% certain it was meteors as i wasn't there when it happened.
 My statues are in a meteor field, I repaired the statues, left for a week to do other stuff and wait for a new moon, when i returned just before the new moon i found the Rook and Knight statues destroyed with missing marble pieces, the Bishop was the only one intact and it was also just outside of meteor range. All of this lead me to believe that it was meteors that caused it.
 In my world meteors happen even if i am on the other side of the map, so maybe the bug is that when meteors hit a repaired statue and you're not in the area they don't drop the suspicious marble pieces as intended?
 Can you please try to reproduce this once more, only this time have the meteors hit the repaired statues while you aren't in the area? Because this happened while i was at camp on the other side of the map, not when i was in the zone. Please and thank you i just want to figure this out.

Can you try this again, only don't be in the area when the meteors hit the repaired statue? Because for me this all happened while i was in camp on the other side of the map, not while i was in the area. I repaired then, spent a week at camp killing time/ waiting for a new moon, then returned the day before a new moon ready to mine them that night and get my sketches, only to find the statues broken and marble pieces missing. Maybe the bug is that when meteors hit a repaired statue while you aren't in the area they won't drop the marble piece?

So if i understand from your testing, when a meteor hits a repaired statue it is meant to drop the marble piece next to it. This would mean that the bug is: My marble pieces didn't drop after the statues were hit by meteors. Possibly due to me not being there when it happened, or possibly it's just a bug on ps4 not pc.

It happened the exact same thing to me in my own server. I repaired 2/3 statues as their pieces spawned quite close and found the last piece like 100 days after (so rollback is not possible) to find out one of the already repaired statues was broken with just a marble next to it, like mined by someone. I play alone so no one could have mined it. I already knew it was a meteor area but never imagined they could break the repaired statues.

Anyway, I am hoping the OP was able to get the missing blueprints from tumbleweeds at least. I play in PC btw.

So i farmed tumbleweeds for about 20-30 hours and only ever got Bishop pawns. Bishop was the only statue i was able to mine and only sketch i obtained. I guess you can only loot each pawn from tumbleweeds after you have received the corresponding sketch prior. I assume this is meant to be a way to get them back if they were stolen or burnt, but doesn't help players like me who had the repaired statues destroyed or the suspicious marble pieces bugged out. I'm still patiently waiting that they will fix this someday, like Klei just please remove the prerequisite for pawns being in the tumbleweed loot table and make them available anytime. they're like a 1% chance anyway it's not like this change will have players opting for tumbleweed farming instead of repairing the statues as the former can take sooo much longer than the latter especially if you use beefalo or Walter to carry the statues. Even walking them over only takes a week in game max, where as farming all three pawns could easily take 10 hours at least unless you were insanely lucky.

Just a recap: My shadow pieces are in a Mosaic biome in the middle of a meteor field, i repaired all three statues and left them alone for 1 week to prepare for the fight and wait for the next full moon. When i returned to the shadow pieces the day before a full moon ready to mine them and get the sketches, i discovered that 2/3 statues were destroyed. Nothing was on the ground either no marble, no sketches, no suspicious marble pieces to re-repair them.

This is my main world of over 3k days now, a solo world that has never had anyone else join, and i'm on ps4 so i can't use commands. To this day it upsets me that i can't do shadow pieces or fuelweaver, i doubt i will ever make a new world either i have so much time invested in this one a huge megabase and it's almost perfect world gen. It would take me weeks of exploring new worlds to find one even close to this good, believe me i even tried at one point, i have searched over 50 worlds. And remember i'm on ps4 so it takes upwards of 45min to explore each world i can't use map reveal mod i have to use Walter.

The only way i have been able to do these fights is on friend's worlds. Sigh.

This is not "an attempt to remove the statue system and allow players to skip it by harvesting Tumbleweeds"
This is a suggestion for a fix that is desperately needed for some players as i'm not the only one it has happened to. My main world of over 3k days is ruined by a bug and i want it fixed.

You realize that carrying the marble pieces and repairing them doesn't take long even if you walk them over it only takes about a week in game at max. Where as farming tumbleweeds for all three pawns would take significantly longer as they have a 0.1% chance to drop. I spent 20-30 hours farming tumbleweeds and only ever got 6 Bishop pawns so yea it's not ideal at all.

My point is that this suggested fix wouldn't have players opting for tumbleweed farming. Nobody would ever choose to farm tumbleweeds for the three pawns instead of just repairing the statues with suspicious marble. This suggested fix would only be a backup for players like me who had the shadow pieces bug out, forever preventing them from doing shadow pieces and fuelweaver. It's a simple fix at that, literally all they have to do is remove the prerequisite for pawn pieces becoming available in the tumbleweed loot table.
