Bug Description:

The patch notes noted the following:

  • Removed ghost-items in the Hotbar for (most) non-buildings.

I liked the convenience of having the ghost items in the Hotbar queue to make another item if I needed one. But now, every time I place a chest, it is immediately removed from my Hotbar.

There were only two posts that I could find that complained about ghost items on the bar:

Both issues above were resolvable; you could SHIFT-CLICK to remove the ghost-item or swap the item with something else.

I honestly can’t think of a reason you wouldn’t want the option to have a ghost-item so that you can continue to create new items and place them. This was a very convenient feature and I don’t understand why it was removed except for building pieces. However, as @JJDancer points out below, not all building pieces leave ghost items. Please revert this change.

For reference:

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Craft ( torch, chest, or window frame (rock) for the new DLC )
  2. Put it on Hotbar
  3. Place the item
  4. Ghost item doesn’t remain.

Oh :anguished:
They got removed?
They where really convenient.

Yet, sometimes they would result in me wasting material on an item I don’t need, because I clicked the wrong key.
But that’s on me and I never experienced them being bugged.

Torches are the same now. You have to either pre-make exactly what you want or put up with having to open your crafting queue each time you want another one.

Also the window frame (rock) for the new DLC build does not ghost, so annoying.


Has this been passed onto the developers? I don’t think this belongs in feedback since there are still bugs, and the implementation is very inconsistent.
