Critter sensor completely stops working

  • Branch: Preview Branch Version: Windows Pending

The critter sensor in my pacu breeding tank stops doing anything at all. No matter what number I set it to, 0-64, it won't activate. A reload doesn't fix it. The only thing that does is deconstructing the ceiling tiles of the tank and rebuilding them. The only reason this occured to me is because previously I used mesh tiles and when this bug first occured I thought somehow the game considered it to be part of the full tank of fish because the game displays water through the mesh tile. When I rebuilt it that time I made sure to use a solid tile just in case. Now the bug has happened again with solid tiles and with the game clearly recognizing the breeder tank is its own room. I took these screenshots and uploaded the save, then deconstructed and rebuilt the ceiling. It resolves the bug until it happens again in another hundred cycles.

How can I delete this? I'm seeing a way now the sensor can go inactive, if 1 pacu dies the door will open, but if the 2nd pacu dies before an egg hatches and drops down the door will close because 0 critters are present. Then I had it stuck in my head it was bugged and tried everything under the sun BUT adding a critter. When I rebuilt the ceiling there were eggs on top that fell in which must have activated the sensor and I thought it was from the ceiling getting rebuilt. 

God this sensor really needs an "above" and "below" setting like other sensors, it's so unintuitive.
