Placeables Destroyed By Maelstrom Damage Do Not List What Destroyed Them

Game mode: Online Private (No Mods)
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvP
Region: North America


When placeable items are destroyed by maelstrom damage, the destruction event appears in the event log, but the causer of the destruction is an empty string (“Large chest was destroyed by .”) I would expect something like “Large chest was destroyed by eldritch winds.”


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. Place a 5 X 5 pad of T3 foundations within the area of effect of the maelstrom.
  3. Place 5 large chests on the pad.
  4. Wait for the maelstrom to start.
  5. Wait for the large chests to be destroyed.
  6. Query the event log with the Building System checkbox checked.
  7. You can see the chest destruction events in the event log, but what caused the chest destruction is not listed.
