I’ve been working my hardest on climbing from level 59 to 60 recently, and so whenever I craft things I tend to watch my XP tick up so I know roughly how much XP I’m getting for my resources. I noticed when crafting black-ice reinforced wooden walls, I would get roughly 2300xp per wall crafted. After replacing a good portion of one of my houses I checked my XP, only to be confused because it barely seemed any higher than the last time I checked and I wasn’t doing anything differently.
After a few minutes of fiddling around I realized what the problem was. You only receive crafting XP when crafting from your inventory. When you have an item on your hotbar that you’ve run out of, and you press your hotkey to craft more, you do not receive crafting xp for it. I haven’t tested other crafts yet but I will update when I do.
Edit: I’ve replicated the exact bug with black ice ceilings as well. Insulated wooden walls as well, at this point I believe its all building pieces.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Craft black ice reinforced wooden wall, watch your XP amount while you craft.
- Place black ice reinforced wooden wall.
- Press the corresponding hotkey that said wall was in on your hotbar to queue another wall to craft.
- Watch your XP amount again while that wall crafts.
