Game mode: [Online Official]
Type of issue: [BUG]
Server type: [PvP]
Region: [US (West Coast)]
Pieces of my base go missing every day to every few days. This latest instance occurred after the hotfix was deployed to the server I’m on - I was online when the server came back from restart, and my base was intact at the time.
It’s always in the exact same section - I’ve discovered that building things above this area will also result in missing pieces. It appears to be a vertical slice of the world which causes anything built within it to disappear at random.
Below is a screenshot of today’s missing pieces. They occur totally at random, sometimes more are missing, sometimes less. Thralls are left floating where there used to be a floor. I have several wheels of pain full of named thralls that were accessible as a result of these missing pieces, and they’re all still there.
Nothing was touched. My purge meter hasn’t reset. No damage to any surrounding piece. My logs are empty.
I re-build only this section of my base once every day to every few days. Nothing beyond that area is ever affected, and as I mentioned before, building above it will result in those pieces missing as well.
It doesn’t appear to occur at server reset either. I was online last night, and logged in right when the server came back up. My base was intact. I logged in again this evening to see missing pieces again. It happened some time in the last 19 hours. This is the 5th time in the last 7 days.
This is horribly game-breaking. It is very expensive to rebuild my base every day. I would not mind as much if it were due to player damage, or NPC attacks. Even if it were the jar exploit, I would at least know that it was someone doing it maliciously.
This is just the server deciding that random pieces of my base shouldn’t exist anymore.
The behavior is consistent, and localized to a relatively small section of my base. The pieces that go missing have no pattern or logic.
There are numerous other reports of this on these forums and others. It is not the jar exploit. It is the game.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Build something at the coordinates of my base, within the affected area, on Official server #1934 PVP. Please contact me directly for further details of the location. The behavior is very consistent at this location.
- Log off.
- Log back on at least 12 hours later
- Repeat until pieces start to go missing
For the convenience of anyone reviewing this issue, I will post a screenshot which shows the missing pieces each time this bug manifests. For now, I’m trying to figure out if I want to even play tonight. Logging on to find the game has erased portions of my base - for the 5th time in a row - doesn’t exactly make me want to play this game anymore.
