  1. On Linux, the effects of light on regolith layer on top of the map are visible on the bottom of the map, in magma layer. I haven't seen it happen on Windows, but it does happen on Linux. Pretty sure that's a OpenGL vs Direct3D thing: they have Y coords for framebuffers going in the opposite directions, which affects deferred rendering if not taken into account. On the screenshot, all the light "rays" go from the bottom to top - there are no "islands". This supports my interpretation.
  2. I had an egg in an incubator turn into 1kg of rock on save load. It wasn't even egg shaped! I'd understand if they put the egg shaped rock artifact in there
  3. Rockets subtract planet mass on launch (!), but spawn cargo based on its mass at the time of landing, with mass already subtracted. For example, sending a rocket with 3000 kg capacity, on a 3 cycle mission to a planet with 3500 kg available resources and 100kg/cycle recharge, would return 2400 kg of cargo (800 kg mass available, but 3 cargo holds, each receiving 800 kg). On the flip side, sending 20 rockets at the same time, to just one planet, will still produce mission time * planet recharge rate of resources, per cargo hold, as long as no missions are started while those 20 are ongoing.
  4. This is actually the same bug as the "robo miners digging infinitely" one, just more general. There are 4 common instances of this bug happening: Two dupes digging a 3+ tile "tower" of sand from below. The tile at height 2 is dug, the tile at height 3 starts falling, the tile at height 1 is dug and immediately re-created with falling tile. Now there's an undiggable tile at height 1. Two robo miners try to dig a tower of regolith. Same as above. A rocket is embedded in regolith and then starts. A similar situation as in the above can happen. A rocket is embedded in regolith, but there's some coal, algae, slime or dirt in the regolith too. The rocket destroys the regolith, but its heat causes one of the materials to change phase in the same physics "tick", creating an undiggable tile. Attached a screenshot with an example of the last point. This rocket has came back, but failed to destroy that refined carbon tile. You can tell it came back onto the tile because there are items on top of the tile - if it formed after landing, items from landing would be buried inside. Not attaching a save since the bug fixes itself on save.
  5. Sightseeing seems to have an effect created for it. This effect is not applied to duplicants who were in a sightseeing module in a rocket that just came back. The stress-reducing effect of sightseeing can be replicated by having a duplicant enter the module and then immediately come out. This will reset stress to 5% and remove existing morale effects. Not sure which one is a bug here since the description is ambiguous.
  6. Slicksters who escape drowning will move diagonally through rock. This often results in them "realizing" that they are now in rock and causes them to become confined. This prevents further drowning, but also any movement. Pictured: One drowning slickster (selected, not confined) having an allowed path go diagonally through rock. One confined slickster (moused over) "created" as a result of a slickster taking such a diagonal path through rock. Pufts are allowed to move diagonally through rock too, but they somehow avoid confining themselves when not drowning. May be related to drowning state itself?
  7. Vacillators, after being recharged, are in "Neural Vacillation in progress" state, making them unusable. Save+load fixes it.
  8. Tiny graphical bug: the destroyed planet in space background has its screen position updated only on active game tick, but its position is view dependent. As a result, planet doesn't move from its absolute (non-view-dependent) position during pause, but snaps to its view dependent position as soon as game is unpaused. For example, if planet is in the middle of the screen, pausing and then moving up will "move" it to the bottom of the screen. On unpause, it will re-center.
  9. Astronaut after arriving from a mission will look un-suited, even when actually wearing a jet suit. The dupe can still fly and will dock the suit later on, it's just invisible until the dupe removes it. EDIT: Earlier bug report was incorrect, the dupe REALLY doesn't lose the suit, but the bug triggers even with gantry
  10. A duplicant in a jet suit can get into a loop where two identical length paths are "better than each other" and the dupe will rapidly switch between them without being able to take a single step. This "dance" will continue for as long as the paths are of identical length, which can spontaneously stop being true due to dupe going a bit too far in one direction. I managed to capture it in a save, but since jobs are not saved, it may take a moment to happen. The attached save has a construction job on yellow alert - this job pretty reliably gets this bug. May not be 100% reliable, but I tested it a few times and it happened every time. I'm pretty sure this bug existed many versions ago, then I stopped seeing it happening, but now it's back. Future Burrow.sav
  11. Only the trunk of Arbor tree receives the buff from Farmer's Touch. Branches - both those created before and after the buff - show next harvest as if the trunk didn't have the buff.
  12. My incubator is incubating glass. No mods or anything like that. Not sure how that happened. Attached a save, although it probably won't help much. The Chaotic Gang.sav
  13. Had this happen with dupe mining as well. Wrangling didn't fix it, the dupes brought "buried object" to the stable where it remained a buried object.
  14. Middle right side of the screenshot, to the right and below the steam vent: a geyser placement in neutronium "biome". The geyser hasn't been placed, just the rock surrounding it. This map was generated in first release version, but I didn't see the bug until now. In output log, the world seed is listed as: Custom Settings: World=worlds/Oasis,WorldgenSeed=1638552134
  15. If an oil well loses power while a duplicant releases its gas pressure, the animation will be interrupted every second. The gas output drops slightly, but the release job continues.
  16. As seen on screenshot, canvas designations can be stacked on each other if designated quickly enough.
  17. After playing 50 or so cycles, the colony summary stops updating. For example, I got the carnivore achievement, it triggered the tooltip and the steam overlay popup, but pressing "colony summary" showed the achievement as not achieved and all the cycle summaries cut off around the time I loaded the save. Save+load updates the colony summary, but it quickly stops updating afterwards.
  18. When there are many duplicants, allowing or disabling consumable for all of them will animate. This animation is not just for show - the actual changes are dependent on it. As a result, closing the consumables window before the animation plays out will not fully apply the changes player wants them to apply, without any warning.
  19. After getting the achievement for colonization (great monument+16 morale) and playing the "animation in progress", mousing over items no longer displays the usual stats like mass, kcal, temperature etc. Save+load fixes it.
  20. Damn, that crab thing is HUGE. I didn't have that many crabs on the map, yet it's obviously noticeable that it got much less laggy.
  21. After launching a rocket, saving and then loading, I got this weird piece of booster floating in place. See screenshot. Some background info: this rocket hasn't been built from ground-up, but "cut" from an earlier rocket. Super Hovel.sav
  22. You don't need to fully control them, just make them able to only do what you want and nothing else and eventually they do what you want (and nothing else). Locking them in a room with only the seeds you want planted is easy, effective, boring and tedious. Afterwards you can wrangle the pips away.
  23. Locking a bunch of pips in a room with one type of seeds and waiting for them to seed the area is just a more tedious and stupid variant of constructing lines of 1 seed storage containers and deconstructing them.
  24. Forcing us to deal with pips but still allowing wild planting is the worst possible situation.
  25. Returning with a research rocket does not cause the display to be updated. The resources are discovered as expected, but "Research" list doesn't check any of the atmosphere/surface etc. as researched.
