Placeable Take Maelstrom Damage Even When Below The Minimum Count For That Damage Type

Game mode: Online Private
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvP
Region: North America

If you configure your server so that the minimum number of building pieces required for building damage is greater than zero, even if the total number of building pieces and placeables are below the minimum threshold, the placeables are still damaged by the maelstrom. This means that you can never place things like bedrolls, beds, chests, workbenches, doors or palisades within the maelstrom.

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:

  1. Configure your server so that the value of MinimumStormDamageBuildingPieces is 20
  2. Build a 3 X 3 pad of T3 foundations while the storm is inactive
  3. Place 4 large chests on this pad
  4. Wait for the storm to start
  5. The chests are destroyed. The pad takes no damage at all.

Hey @helium3

Thanks for the feedback, it’s been relayed to our team so they can look into it.

it’s not a bug, this setting is for big spacetrash spawn trigger, not for maelstrom damage, those are separate things

Are you referring to the config that controls how large a base has to be before Siege Elder Things start spawning?


That’s actually a different configuration setting called MinimumBuildingSizeToBeSieged. The one I’m referring to controls how large a structure needs to be before it starts taking damage from the storm itself. That one is called MinimumStormDamageBuildingPieces.

heh, sorry I got confused with those names
but to the point I was led to believe that even single piece shall take storm damage and setting is to increase/reduce it, so setting it to naught should theoretically disable storm damage
